Keeping things up-to-date for you!
- Google Analytics
We believe that many of you are taking advantage of the possibility to connect Smartsupp events to Google Analytics. This allows you to analyze conversations better and constantly move your business forward.
With the new Smartsupp version come changes in Google Analytics events. We’ve adjusted them to help you analyze the progress of your conversations better. And we also added some brand new ones! Current events that are sent to your GA accounts are listed, even with a brief description, in our article in the Help section.
An important note in conclusion. We have changed the titles of events that we send to GA. This means that if you work with events in your own reports or, for example, you send them to Google Ads as goals, you need to update it in those systems.
- Major Release
We are about to launch a new Smartsupp. What can you expect?
We have prepared a lot of news for you. Not only the chat box, but also the dashboard is changing completely. When can you expect to see the polished product? We will gradually switch customers in waves after weeks so that we can answer any questions and keep all of you as satisfied as possible. We start on June 17. Let’s look at the individual changes in more detail.
Conversations divided into categories
Conversations are the cornerstone of Smartsupp. For that reason, you will see them right after logging in and you can immediately focus on visitors who need your advice. Conversations are now divided into “Open” and “Closed” and you will find them all nicely located together in one tab.
If you work in a team, you will also appreciate the new feature of assigning a conversation to multiple agents.
Email integration is already in the pilot phase. It means you will see offline messages in your dashboard, where you can reply to them directly! Great, isn’t it? The agent will also receive an email notification about the offline message.
Browsing your users in the Visitor list
And don’t worry, we also didn’t forget the Visitor list. It moved to the second place and got a bright new coat. Browsing your users and getting know them better is now much easier.
A New chat box
The modern and elegant look of the new chat box is definitely striking. But design is not the only thing we have improved.
We believe that we will definitely make you happy with the possibility of sending files, both from the chat box and from the dashboard.
More personal conversations
We’ve also added a few emojis to make your communication with customers even more personal. For this reason, more focus is also placed on displaying the photo and the name of the operator in the header, and it will no longer be possible to set the name and logo of your company.
Changes in API
Because we tried to simplify the setup of the entire widget, we removed some API calls. If you use some advanced API functions, be sure to read the following few lines which describe what is changing.
If you are using Content Security Policy (CSP) on your website, you will need to add the following rules for Smartsupp to work correctly until April 28th. https://www.smartsupp.com/help/how-to-use-smartsupp-with-content-security-policy-csp/
To avoid sending spam emails with your offline messages, we’ve added a condition to verify the email address to which offline messages go to. So if you want offline live chat messages to go to a different email than your registration email, you need to verify the e-mail address in your account Settings here.
- Facebook Integration
We just can’t stop working on solutions making your work easier.
Get ready for a new era of Smartsupp, combining the good, old chat (with an improved look though) with Facebook messenger and email!

Save message as a Shortcut

If you want to be sure that your Smartsupp chat code can only be implemented on your site, add your domain to a field in Settings > General.
- Chat Box
