Real-Time Visitor Monitoring & User Tracking


The Monitor Window enables you to keep track of your website visitors. It shows all visitor activities - whether they are browsing your website, sent a chat request, or chatting with one of your operators, it displays everything.


The operators can view ongoing chats, invite visitors/customers to chat, and accept incoming chat requests. As an admin, you can do all this and also join an ongoing chat between your operator and a visitor.


You can also view their geographical location as well as the amount of time they've spent on your website or chatting with an operator.
