The chatbox is great to have only if we can respond in time.
The notifications are quite late. This needs to be improved.

I like the idea, to get everything into the backend of the webshop, but it lacks a few things. I does not pull old messages in from messenger only new, and not new messages written from outside inbox, this means that if you have made contact with a customer for a competetion etc, you cannot see the conversation in inbox, before the customer answers :-(. Alså more providers like zendesk, freshworks and soho, could be nice to be integrated into this, or maybe even go all the way, and let the system handle a custom email address, so that all written customer service could be handled in this system. It does not seem like the integration part has been delt with since the start of this project. An email channel with custom email, would solve quite a bit..

For a free application it's fine. I am displeased with the fact that your chat transcripts do not attach to the customer record. Standard SOP for a CRM.

The app is okay. If you are a small team its great. If you have more staff this app does not have enough user controls or logs to support an actual team as of yet. The app will send out notifications to ALL staff members on your store no matter what. You as the master user / owner have no control to limit notifications, which means any user on your store (no matter permissions set) will get a notification about a chat. Also there are no logs of these emails being sent to staff members. I talked with Shopify support and they told me that each user would need to click an opt-out at the bottom of the first notification they receive, but since (as the master user) I would have no log of this happening it would create a bit of a security flaw. Until proper user permissions, that are controlled by the master user are set in place I will not be able to use this app. I really hope this is updated because this app has a lot of promise. Other chat apps currently have more robust options and permission settings and I would recommend using them until updates.

This application is bare bones and desperately needs more interaction options such as requiring a phone number and/or spam detection.

I like the app the only thing that made me give it three stars is everytime i log in it state we were unable to authenticate you you must confirm your account before logging in. So fustrating.

Hey, there. Thanks for reaching out about this; I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble logging into the app. There are a number of reasons that you may be receiving this error - I'd recommend double checking that both your app and your device are on their most recent update, and that you're logging in using the same credentials that you use to access your Shopify Admin. If all of this is correct, please contact our live Support team who can look into this further for you: Cheers! - Brie, Shopify Support

I tried this on, First the Pros: Love product cards the ability for the customer to add to cart or buy directly from the chat is another sales channel, (sorely lacking from other chat apps) The ability to give a discount coupon and the customer can just click on it and have it applied is a great feature. Mobile app works well. Now the CONS: WHERE is the customers order information? This does not have the customers order information integrated in the the inbox. In my opinion the is a must if you want to have efficient customer service. Many other chat apps have this, And this is Shopify so it surprised me that it was lacking it. Desktop notifications stopped working a few minutes after install. These 2 reasons were a deal breaker, Wish list: needs live visitor monitoring where you can see all visitor and who they are if they are logged in and what they have in their carts.
