How to Get Chat Notifications via Text Message

Updated 2 years ago by Kelsey Johnson

After a new chat conversation, we email you a full chat transcript. Now, with Live Chat plans you can also get a text message (SMS) notification, too. Here’s how to set up SMS notifications:

  1. Sign into your Chat account and navigate to “Settings”

  1. Click “Update notification settings”
  2. Add as many phone numbers as you like, separating each by a comma. Click “Save.”

  1. You can test the notification by engaging your own chat widget (we never charge for tests). When each chat conversation is finished, every number you added will get a text message that looks like this:

If the Live Chat agent is able to collect a phone number, it will be included in the text notification. Otherwise, only the email address will appear.
