Scheduling live chat availability

When using Live Chat, it would be great to be able to schedule your availably to coincide with you working hours, for example. At the moment, you have to manually select Online/Offline but automating and scheduling this would be much better

    Hi @Mike Garvey , that's a really interesting idea, thank you for sharing!

    Currently there are no direct plans for scheduled on/off hours in LiveChat but the team noted down your suggestion for when they'll work on updates again. Here’s how to get notified about what’s coming down the line:

    • 🔮 Follow What's Planned to know what we're currently working on and what’s to come.
    • 🌟 Follow What’s New and don’t miss any new release announcements.
    • 🧪 Join our Research and Beta Testing channel for the chance to try out early versions and give us your opinion about new and improved features before they go live.

    Is this being worked on?

     It would be great to have the feature of scheduled hours for the live chat. This eliminates human error when not turned on manually. People get busy, and an opportunity could be missed.

    Mike, have I missed your email to [email protected]? With a script in functions.php you can schedule the chatbot plug-in to be activated or deactivated.
