    Can I whitelist countries? We want to only be available in one country for the moment.

    Hey Tom,

    At this time you can only blacklist countries and whitelist specific domains. Unfortunately, there's no way to whitelist a country. If you notice a large number of chats coming in from an unsupported country, you'll want to just add that country to the blacklist.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Many businesses will want to restrict most of the world.  We only want chat available in the US and Canada, so your best approach would be checkbox selection, or an exclude all then whitelist, or just remove, specific countries.

    Hi Brett, 

     

    We use an outsourced company who is taking care of the chat using Zendesk chat tool (they don't use VPN).

    Though from this specific county we also receive spam and would not like to service customers from this country.

    Is it safe to blacklist this country w/o causing any troubles to my agents to do their work? 

    Thank you in advance, 

    Mari
