Bot v2 Theming
We’ve introduced a newer version of our bot to provide a smooth and stable user experience to our customers. We’ve tried to improvise the look and feel of the bot by providing additional options around chat settings. Currently, this can be enabled depending on customer requirements. You can get it enabled directly or with a manual toggle switch.
If already it’s enabled you can directly access it from Configuration > Web Display
Depending on your entitlement, you could need to enable it through Deployment > Website chatbot
Once you switch on the toggle, you would be able to see the new configuration settings under Configuration > Web Display

- Enable fading-in of new messages: Enabling this option will ensure that the messages and options in the chat bubble, appear one after another each in a separate line fading-in. This behaviour will increase the time taken to load all the chat bubbles and will only be applicable for the Website chatbot widget and not on the Standalone bot or other social channels.
- Edit Previous User Message: Enabling this option allows bot users to modify their previous response to the bot. You can configure the following field by checking this box:
- Default Response: This is the message that will be displayed when the user clicks on the change response. You can enter text up to 100 characters.
- Notify users via sound on new messages from the agent: When in live chat, the user leaves the active page with the chatbot to browse other tabs or websites. They will hear the beep sound on the first unread message. This sound will only be played once and not on every new unread message, so as to make the user aware that an agent has sent a new message and also cause minimal distraction.
