Quick setup

After signing in to the anychat.one dashboard, you will see the Quick Setup dialog that will help you to set up the widget within a few steps. Let's take a look at this setup dialog.

1 - Widget domains

In the first step, you need to add all domains for all websites you would like the AnyChat widget to appear. Each domain is on a new line. For example, you need to display widget on https://my-site.com and https://my-second-site.com. In that case, you need to add domains like this

2 - Integration type

You can choose between two types of integration:
  • Menu button widget - display multi-tool button that combines all contact methods into one menu. You can include different contact methods like WhatsApp, Telegram, Messenger, LiveChat, Contact form, etc... to this menu.
  • Standalone LiveChat widget - only the built-in LiveChat widget will be displayed.

3 - Menu items

This step is not applicable if you choose the Standalone LiveChat widget in the previous step.
Menu items are contact methods you want to display in the widget menu. If you choose Menu button widget in the previous step, you need at least one menu item to pass this step.

Click the Create first channel button to create a menu item.
You will see another dialog that you can use to create a channel. You need to complete the required fields to create a new channel.
Let's say you need a create a channel that should open WhatsApp chat by clicking it. To do that, please follow these steps:
  • Fill Title (ex. WhatsApp). You can optionally set the subtitle (ex. Available 24/7).
  • Choose the action you want to perform on a channel click. Select WhatsApp in the action dropdown menu.
  • Enter your WhatsApp number in the field below.
  • You can optionally customize the icon, color, and other options on the Customization tab.
  • Also, you can set some visibility rules on the Visibility tab.
  • Save dialog.
You can find more information about channels in this section of the documentation.

4 - Widget code

In the final step, you can find a list of compatible plugins for CMS systems like PrestaShop, OpenCart, WordPress, etc... If you are using one of the supported CMS, you might need a Widget ID and API Key. You can find this data in the Integrate via plugin tab of the final step.
You can integrate our widget via custom JS code to any other site. In that case, you need to copy the JS code from the Custom CMS code tab and then insert it into your site template before closing </body> tag.
