Link from content to live chat / bot

bots

#1

Hello,

I would like to know if there is a possibility to link from a URL to the live chat function.

Like, I'm reading a blog post and there is a CTA to "Need help?", and if I click it opens the live chat / bot.

How may I do this?

Thank you,

Ivano

Hi @Ivano_Stella, this is currently not possible to do with the Messages widget out of the box. Looks like this idea has some traction so I'd definitely take a look here: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/HubSpot-Ideas/Possibility-to-open-the-chat-window-by-using-custom-button-js/idi-p/175889/page/4#comments.

That said, on that page I linked above, the user yaroinfo has a solution using javascript you could implement.

This should allow you to open up the chat widget on click of a custom button or link.

Hello Connor,

Thank you for sharing that. I found out that appending "#hs-chat-open" on links it works.
