    How do you get the chat widget on every page of your website?

    Hey there Sarah Snyder,

    You just need to use the same script for all your website pages. Also, you will see which website a visitor is from based on the URL displayed on the Visitor list and the active chat window.

    You can refer to this article for the complete instruction on how to install Zendesk Chat on multiple websites: How can I use Zendesk Chat on multiple websites?

    is it possible to embed several different zendesk chat accounts on the same website?

    For example, I website contain three different companies webpage, I would like to create 3 different zendesk accounts and embed to different webpage.

    Hi Chan,

    This is possible, although you have to make sure that the widgets are positioned differently so that they don't overlap. It can confuse users if there are multiple widgets though. If you're supporting multiple companies on one web page the simplest option might be to set the different companies up as departments within one chat account, and then the customer can select which department they want to talk to when interacting with the widget.

    Hi, 

    On my ionic mobile, I don't want to show the floating chat widget (as it will conflict with other elements), but to place it as an item. Is there any way to do that?

    Thanks

    Hi Ivan.

    Thanks for reaching out!

    May i have a look at your mobile view of the widget? can you send a screenshot? Also, you can rather overlay the widget on your mobile device following this article: Recipe: Identify and track what webpage a customer was on when they started a chat

    HI Zendesk / Zopim Chat Team,

    We are working on improving our website speed.  Often the page speed tools suggest that the Zopim JavaScript can be compressed more.  Is the something we can download, compress and embed locally from our own domain?  Or do you have an updated version that is faster?

    Here's a screenshot example:

    Hi Scott Stawarz,

    I agree, Zendesk needs to redo the widget in a lighter fashion. It hits our Google rankings because it slows down the page.  Our workaround until Zendesk fixes this (Zendesk, why not fix it??) is to load an image that looks like chat, and when the customer clicks it, we redirect them to a deeper page in our website to load the actual chat.

    Terrible, right? But we didn't want our main page to get "dinged" by Google.
