The Agents section in the LiveChat Agent App, the one with the list of all the people and chatbots in your LiveChat, has received a major UX upgrade and a new name. Behold Team!
The most spectacular change is the new Work Scheduler. You can now:
set the working hours for whole groups of agents in one go
and set multiple breaks.
In the new Team section, you can also:
Add whole groups of new agents by copying and pasting agent emails.
Manage multiple agents’ availability with just a few clicks.
Access the most vital Agent actions from the main view.
What’s more important than useful analytics? Nothing! That’s why we’ve upgraded the filtering options in Reports and Archives, so you can better enjoy exploring all that data you’ve accumulated.
The update adds a brand new country filter, along with “exclude”, “and” & “or” logic. This allows you to group different chats, look at your reports from a different angle, and draw original conclusions by comparing data in a new way.
Furthermore, we’ve added quality life improvements, like custom time periods for heatmaps, intuitive days navigation in the Agents activity chart, and seamless transition between reports and archives data.
Check out the full description of the improved Reports.
Online shopping is good and all, but there really is no better way to get the perfect fit than by trying new things directly. We totally get it, and our live editor is proof of that.

What you get with the live editor:

Adjustable on-site appearance, including theme, colors, position, and offsets

You can now handle LiveChat tickets in the LiveChat mobile app for agents.
Whether the tickets are your primary means of communication with customers or you only use them for more complex cases, you now can:
Availability can be a real struggle nowadays. We are often expected to give our full attention to so many things at the same time. And we still need to sleep now and then.
No worries, LiveChat’s got you covered! Messaging Mode is all you need to maintain engaging support during offline hours.
Messaging Mode is a feature that allows asynchronous communication with your visitors. Basically, they can send you a message even if you’re not available, and you can send a reply while they’re away from their desks. The chat history is loaded for both recipients whenever they go back to the conversation. Just like social messaging!
What you get with Messaging Mode:
Full time chat availability. Enable customers to start a chat and reply to messages whenever they want.
Connections that last. Manage your chats with customers by replying to conversations anytime.
Better insight on your chat traffic with heatmap report, which can now track data from chats started during offline hours.
Offline and online conversations combined into single chat history.
Natural customer experience. Business chats that perform just like social messaging.
We’re proudly introducing an even darker mode in LiveChat. The new version covers all of the chat widget elements, including text areas, targeted messages, forms, rich messages, and buttons.
Dark mode is a chat window modification that inverts colors, displaying light texts on dark backgrounds. The result is easier on the eyes, especially during nighttime, improving user experience and accessibility of your chat widget.
This update is only a first small step in a big plan to enhance our chat widgets. Expect more news from us soon!

With our newest update, agents no longer have to guess queued visitors’ queries before choosing to chat with them. Visitors can type their first message while waiting in the queue, and agents can immediately see it in the LiveChat app. Prioritizing pending chats got much easier, and the user experience that much better.
What you get with the queue update:
Much better experience for visitors as they no longer need to wait in a queue to state their query.
Interactive queues appear more attractive to visitors, increasing the number of chats you get.
Shorter chatting time. Agents will be able to prepare for visitors’ cases before picking them up from a queue.
Agents can quickly spot urgent issues, giving them more control over the queue.
Better engagement reduces the chance of customers leaving your queue. Visitors who stated their query will more likely stay on the line to get it resolved.
We are always happy to deliver features requested by our customers, and Ask for email is exactly such a feature. Now you can set up a message that will be automatically sent to the customer when an agent does not respond within a set amount of time, or when your agents are offline.
Ask for email allows you to set up an automatic message to inform the customers that your agents are busy at the moment and ask for contact information. You can also set up the time after which such a message is to be sent.
In Messaging Mode, this feature allows you to obtain or confirm the customer’s contact information when your agents are offline.
