About the project

Agent App Extension is a web application loaded inside the LiveChat Agent App. All agents can interact with the extension during chats with customers. The extension itself is displayed in the Agent’s App sidebar.

Use cases

You can use the extension in a number of ways:

  • query the external services with visitor’s email or LiveChat group ID (CRM, marketing automation, etc.),
  • display static content, e.g. knowledge base articles, conversation prompts or context information,
  • query LiveChat REST API to do basically anything with the visitor, agent or chat.
