A website widget is a communication tool that is integrated into a website to facilitate interaction with visitors. It unifies various digital communication channels, including chat, CRM form, and callback option.
Visitors just click the button and select a preferred means of communication. Take advantage of this feature to improve overall site conversion and increase sales.
How to create a new widget
Go to CRM > Add-ons > Website Widget.
The standard widget is already there at your disposal. The widgets you create will be displayed under My company's widgets.
This page also provides general information about each widget. You can click the Edit button under this block to configure a widget.
Click the Create widget button to add a new one.
A new widget form opens on a new sliding page. Specify the widget name and proceed with its settings.
Widget settings allow you to activate either chosen or all options (online chat (via Bitrix24 Open Channels), callback, CRM form). By default, all of them are enabled.
Open Channel is used to collect inquiries from different sources and route them to the Bitrix24 Messenger.
Select an Open Channel from the dropdown list, and you will see the messengers and social networks connected to it. Tick the ones you want to use in the widget.
You can also add another open channel below. That comes in handy when you need to display social networks and messengers connected to different open channels.
A CRM form is a tool for receiving information from customers.
Select a CRM form from the list, or create a new one.
Callback is a special use case for CRM form. It allows you to get a potential client's phone number and quickly call them back.
Select a callback form from the list, or create a new one.
