When all the support staff on your chat account are offline, the chat widget automatically switches to an offline form.

If you have Work Hours feature enabled, the offline form will be shown as soon as your operating hours are over. 


You can edit the widget's content under Manage >> Messages section. 

Where do I see offline messages from customers?

1. Offline messages are sent to the email address that is mentioned under Manage >> Chat Transcripts of your HappyFox Chat Account. Generally it is the email id with which you have signed up and can be changed.

2. Offline messages will be populated under History >> Offline Messages section of your HappyFox Chat account.

How to reply to offline messages?

1. Integrate HappyFox Chat and HappyFox HelpDesk, Offline messages will be created separate tickets and you can reply via these tickets.

2. Inside every offline message under History, you have an option to send an email to the customers using “Invite to Chat”.


As shown below the email along with the "invite to chat" link will be sent from a no-reply email address.

Clicking "Invite to chat" link will redirect the customer to a page with the chat widget. 

3. Simply reply to the offline messages sent to your email id/chat transcript email id's inbox.
