  2. From the left navigation menu, go to Live Chat > Campaign.
  3. Select a campaign from the drop-down list, and go to Invitation.
    The Invitation page displays with the Auto Invitation tab as default.
  4. Choose if you want to edit an existing invitation from the list or add a new invitation.

  9. Set the invitation conditions.

  10. You can also turn on the Only pop-up once per visit toggle key.
    With this option selected, your invitation window pops up as a modal window so that your visitors are required to interact (accept or decline) before they can continue their navigation.kb-invit-06.png
  11. Click Save.

There you have it. Your auto chat invitation will show to your target visitors who meet the conditions configured in the settings.

Note: After the visitor accepts the invitation, If auto-accept chat is not enabled, agents need to manually Accept the chat. If the chat is not picked up within 30 seconds after the invitation is accepted, the visitor will receive a system message.
