Managing the Tag Directory

Directory

The maaiiconnect Directory lists your corporate tags and staff members that your visitors can reach your customer support with the live chat and call when they click the widget on your website.

There are two types of Directory that you can enable and utilise in your web widget.

  • Tag Directory - list of corporate services with the support team as agents.

  • Staff Directory - list of staff members that can directly be contacted by your website visitors. Refer to our Configuring the Widget - Enable Staff Directory section of this Guide.

 

Tags

Tags are usually associated with the business divisions or teams in a company, and they help your website visitors identify which one they will have to contact.

For example, if you create a tag named Marketing and Sales, it will be listed in your Tag Directory, and your website visitors can contact your marketing and sales team directly from there.

You can create tags in the maaiiconnect dashboard and configure their destination settings based on your support teams, supported locations and languages.

 

QR Code and Web Link

When you create a tag, maaiiconnect automatically generates its QR code and web link for direct calls and chat. QR codes and web links are alternative methods your customers can use to connect with your support team directly.

To share the tag's QR code with your staff and customers, or attach it on a web page or other channels where visitors can reach you, download and save the QR code image in PNG or SVG format. To share the tag's web link, simply copy its URL.

QR Code and Web Link

Please take a look at this video on how your customers can initiate a call or chat simply by scanning a QR code or clicking a web link.
