Talk calls ending in Help Center Web WidgetAnswered
In our Help Centers, if an end user starts a Digital Line call with us from the web widget, then they navigate away from the page that they started the call on, it ends the call.
Is this expected behavior? Or is this a setting we can change?
It is expected that whenever end-users navigate away from the current page that they have during a call, the call will get disconnected. Since the call was initiated using the web widget, once the web widget refreshes or reloads when navigating away, it will disconnect the current call.
What I could personally suggest is to inform your end-users not to navigate away from where the call was initiated and instead use a new tab when it's necessary to access different web pages.
It would be really helpeful if Zendesk displayed a warning to the user when they attempted to navigate away that it would end their call.

Hi Zendesk team,
We're having kinda same issue described by the OP - can you confirm that by saying "navigate away from the current page", that means end users while on the Guide page with web widget, if they click on a link displayed in that same page (which basically opens a new page within the same tab), then the call will be auto-disconnected?
Yes, even in Guide, if the end-user goes to a different page where the web widget is when they're on a call initiated by the web widget, the call will be dropped, because the widget will have to reload.
Hi Dave, thanks for confirming. Does this apply to also situations where end users switching between tabs? Ie having 2 Chrome tabs open, one having web widget on call, the other one their Gmail page and they time to time jumping to the Email tab to check for info
Hey Andrew, as long as the tab with the widget is still open, you should be able to navigate to other tabs.
