Step 1: Check the list of requirements.

Note: You can click [ SEND ] to send this code by email to the user in charge of embedding the Chat widget in the Product name - ev sas.png app.

Step 3: Embed the JavaScript code in an Product name - ev sas.png app to display the Chat widget.


1. Go to Product name - ev sas.png and open the app you want.

2. Use a HTML Script widget to display the Chat widget:

  • Click Apps - Add widget icon.png in the Objects pane. Open the Basic category and click and drag the HTML Script widget to the Design pane.

    Best Practice icon.png You can place the HTML Script widget anywhere on the page because the Chat widget will appear by default at the bottom right of the user's screen. Nevertheless, to find it quickly without searching for the widget by name, you can insert it at the bottom of the page.

  • Rename the widget so you can identify it easily.
  • Paste the JavaScript code obtained in step 2 in Theme > Footer > Footer and check the Display box.

    Best Practice icon.png  Paste the code of the Chat widget in the Header or Footer section instead of the HTML Code field. This enables the Chat widget to be displayed without being restricted by the height of the HTML Script widget and to appear on all app pages.

Note: In some cases, you can also use the Secured Html widget and paste the JavaScript code directly in the Html Code field.

3. Click EVApps - GUI - Execute icon.png to switch to preview mode and check the visual layout and workability of the Chat widget.
