This is nice for chatting with a knowledge base, we need a chat system similar to msn messenger
- Open a tawk to account.
- On your tawk to dashboard search for “direct chat link”.
- Copy the link
- Paste into any column on your g sheet.
- Use any glide component that allows itself to be set to web view like an inline list (better as you can upload maybe a chat icon ).
- Set 5 to web view.
- When ppl tap on icon live chat opens.
- Chat away all day, all night !
- Download the app for instant notification. Never miss a chat.
- Loads of other things you can do. Spend some time on the tawk to dashboard.
Thank for this, but i already have this setup as I mentioned before. I was referring if users on my app can chat with each other.
It’s a 3rd party integration. Answer is no
How did you do that!
You mean the pop up ?
Hey Gliders, I’m joining the conversation about the chat.
So I’m building a chat within the app, similar to the one @Lisa built, with the comments component etc. So that’s the easy part and completed, now what I’m going crazy with, is that I want to relate users and unique chat id’s, so:
1- if one of the users starts a chat, he/she cannot start it again with the same user
2- once the chat has been started, navigate straight to chat tab (using the new feature) when clicked on the same button (start a chat, using the new action builder)
I have a messages tab, where the chat requests go to, and I relate this tab to the user’s one, which is when it gets confusing. My idea is if two unique ID’s match (in the user’s tap) then is a match, which is option 2
If they don´t match then either of the users can start a chat.
I know it sounds confusing, but I hope I’ve been clear enough,
Thanks in advance for all the answers
Pablo, I think you need to have a page that automatically takes any variations of users and creates a unique ID, this should be done whenever a new user is created. So I haven’t tested this yet and I will today (I am having to build a chat into one of my apps as well) But what I am going to do is create an array formula that runs down the list of users and combines usernames with a & in the arrayformula, it wont be a ID number but it will be close enough to work. those will be setup as a relation and using that relation I will have buttons go to possible relations based on a search that does the exact same thing with the relation to the user page.
Hey @Drearystate, thank you so much for your response. I got help already from this amazing community and got the chat working already. Thank you so much anyway, I’m now going through your texting tutorial
Has anyone tried to implement the live chat with tawk.to recently? I’ve been following the steps and added a web view with the direct link but it only shows a blank screen. @Wiz.Wazeer I’ve even opened the live chat on your app http://wizchat.glideapp.io/ but it also shows a blank screen as well. However opening the link directly works fine so it stands to reason that maybe Glide recent updates have something to do with it?
Welcome to the Community.
Thank you…if its showing as a blank screen you are most probably correct…I will check it out and get back to u. Thank you for letting me know.
Hi,just checked and noticed I was logged out,logged in again,it is working as normal.
Hi, thanks for the response.
I still get nothing when I open http://wizchat.glideapp.io/ this is what I get and it’s the same on mobile and web.
Ah…I am logged out of that one…I thought you’d meant wizwazeer.glideapp.io
is wizwazeer.glideapp.io with tawk.to because I can only see whatsapp as chat option there?
Yes it…do you not see the tawk to icon? click on the icon
It’s the 3rd tab I think
Yes, I got it! It opens a new page where you can chat, but embedded (web view) inside Glide doesn’t work.
