How to Add a Post Chat Survey


The ‘Post Chat’ feature allows you to collect customer or visitor feedback right after a chat session is over. The feedback can be used to assess the abilities of your operators and the overall quality of the live chat service provided by you.


A single post-chat survey is associated with a particular operator group. You can create multiple post-chat surveys by customizing our survey template for each group. Alternatively, you can also integrate ProProfs Survey or any third-party survey as a post-chat survey.
