Creating and Managing Triggers | tawk.to

Triggers are used to create proactive chat engagement. A basic trigger will automatically open a chat window after a pre-determined amount of time and pose a question to the visitor, such as “Hello, how may I help you?”

To Setup and Use Triggers Follow These Steps:

1. Go to Admin at the sidebar of the Dashboard.

2. Choose the Property you wish to Manage Triggers  for if you have multiple sites and pages.

3. Click on Triggers under Property Settings. If you already have Triggers setup, you can Manage the Triggers on this screen.

4. To Add a New Trigger click the Green Add Trigger button in the top right corner of the Dashboard.
