How do I set up the look & feel of the widget?
Creating an access point to query the knowledge is incredibly simple. Dialpad Self-Service has an out of the box widget capability. You are able to create a widget from within the Dialpad Self-Service platform in Account>Settings>Widget. You can also use our APIs to connect a search bar, contextual beacon or develop your own custom entry point.
Once you have configured the widget, hit save and the autogenerated script is ready for deployment.
Configuring the theme and banner image
To set the primary color (theme) for the widget out of the box, click the 'PRIMARY COLOR' box and enter a hex or RGB code, or manually select the correct tone from the color picker. You can also choose fonts and customize the logo you want to appear in the widget by dropping the image address (url) into the 'LOGO' field. If you would like to add text on the banner beneath your logo, this can be edited in the 'BANNER MESSAGE TEXT' field below along with the height of the banner itself.
Configuring the floating action button (FAB launcher)
The floating action button (FAB) is configurable out of the box in 3 standard settings (and custom setting, configurable using CSS). The default setting is advised, however should you wish to add text to the call to action, you can do this with the question mark and bookmark style formats. It is also possible to change the color of the FAB independently of the primary color theme, as well as positioning and size.
Avatar & Toggle settings
If you would like to add an avatar to the bot you can upload an image of your choice using the 'Avatar' toggle. You can also change top bar preferences on the widget, giving the user buttons for menu control, instant escalations and reloading the conversation. in addition, it is possible to enable tracking in test environments and to alter the scroll behavior to the start or end of your responses depending on what is optimum for type of content in the widget.
Advanced settings & Customizations
The advanced settings box allows you to customize the look and feel of the widget and widget FAB launcher using CSS directly injected. See the developer documentation for more details on how to do this.
