How to Add Links to the Chatbot Buttons
At Tidio, we value each feedback and feature request that comes from our users. The ability to add a clickable link inside the bot was highly requested by you and we are happy to finally announce – the links in our chatbot buttons are now here 🎉
Where can I place the link?
At this moment, two of our Decision actions have the ability to add links to them. These are the Decision (Buttons) and Decision (Card Messages):
How to place a link to the Decision (Buttons) & Decision (Card Messages) actions?
NOTE: Plese keep in mind that the ‘Decision (Buttons)’ and ‘Decision (Card Messages)’ nodes are not available for our WIX users .
Simply open the bot you wish to edit or create from your Chatbot section in the Tidio panel. Once, you will see the Chatbots editing map – drag and drop the Decision (Buttons) action and add it to your bot’s workflow.
Click on the Decision (Buttons) or (Card Messages) action and the adjustment menu will pop up on the right side.
To add a link – click on the Type in a button name field.
An option to add an action or – an URL will show up:
Difference between an Action and the URL:
Action – allows you to create a button which will lead to another action. You can continue the bot’s workflow.
URL – allows you to transfer the visitor to the chosen internal or external page.
NOTE: Please note, that the URL option can not be followed by any other action. If you wish to create a flow of choices inside your bot – please use the Action option.
How will my link open?
Internal links – if the link is to the page within your website where Tidio is installed on – the page will open in the same browser tab that the visitor is using.
External links – if the link is to a different website than the one where Tidio is installed on – the website will open in a new tab of the web brwoser.
