We like to stay fresh!
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of many years work by the European Union to unify and strengthen data protection for all EU citizens. As taking care of your and your customers’ privacy is our number one priority, we are gladly reporting that LiveChat is GDPR compliant!
LiveChat is GDPR compliant: what does it mean?
GDPR regulates the processing of personal data in the European Union (its collection, storage, transfer or use). Under the GDPR, the concept of “personal data” is broad and covers any person-related information that can be used to identify them.
The important thing is that GDPR applies to every organization that processes personal data of the EU citizens, even if it’s located outside of the EU. What it means is that GDPR gives you more control over how your data is used.
General Data Protection Regulation: two-way agreement
We are dedicated to help our customers become GDPR compliant as well. Here is a product guide that will show how to adjust LiveChat for GDPR compliance and that will help you better process and control your customers’ data: Prepare your chat for General Data Protection Regulation.
Also, in case of any additional questions regarding GDPR, feel free to visit our official GDPR landing page. There you will find a lot of additional information that you may find useful.
There’s one more thing: as we know how important this topic is, don’t hesitate to start a chat with us – we will be more than happy to provide you with any additional information that you may require!
You can now decide who will get chats first in a group. This is a follow-up update to the recently released Agents section.
You have two priority settings to choose from: Primary, for core team agents who always should get chats first, and Secondary, for agents who fill in as backup or are still learning the ropes.
You can change agent priority by editing one of your agent groups in the Groups settings. You need to have the new design enabled in your Profile menu to access priority settings.
Let us know what you think about the update!
The new and improved Agents section is finally here!
You can now filter agents to find specific team members more quickly. You also get information about agent’s email and groups right on the list.
Smaller changes include a cleaner look for the Agent details section. Next week, you’ll also get access to a priority system you can use to decide who will get chats first within a group.
You can go between the new and the old look using the switch in your profile menu. Make sure to check the new Agents section out!
You can now start using the Chats section in the new and improved look.
The new chat list now stores ongoing, queued and supervised chats for easier access. It’s also capable of handling more than six chats at a time.
Smaller changes include a clean look and new map for the Customer details section.
If you’d like, you can go back to the old look at any time using the switch in your profile menu.
Check out our latest post on the Chats section to find out more about these changes.
