What does the 'Off the Record' button do?


B2C Service Chat, Feature - Off the Record


When you send a message as 'Off the record' the agent will get your response but the text will not be stored in the database. An example of a good use for this would be for a customer to confirm information such as a Social Security or Credit Card Number.

This feature is enabled by default with Customer Portal.

To remove the Off the Record button:

In Customer Portal the file used to load the chat page is called chat_landing.php and is found in the following WebDAV directory: /euf/development/views/pages/chat

To remove the button, the following widget declaration should be removed from the code:
<rn:widget path="chat/ChatOffTheRecordDialog"/>
<rn:widget path="chat/ChatOffTheRecordButton"/>

For additional information, refer to the 'Chat for customers' section in the Online Help User Guide documentation for the version your site is currently running.
