Take a look at : https://www.tawk.to

I have not integrated it in a AppGini app yet, but it is really easy to integrate.
You get some code that you paste into the page you want it to appear on, and then you have a chat-box in lower right corner. Functions on desktops as well as mobiles. Useful for support - users can get a subscript of the conversation. It is basically free.

Hi patsd102,

there is a new location for that project: https://frug.github.io/AJAX-Chat/
I quickly downloaded the standalone version.
It seems that one should be able to include the /index.php in the chat directory. I would suggest trying this in the hooks file of the table (views) you want to make this chat available to. If the include does not work, copy the contents of that file in the hooks table directly and adjust path settings.

As a "bonus", you could copy the database settings from AG into the variables of the ajax chat.

Hi,

I'm using LiveZilla...

https://www.livezilla.net/home/en/
https://www.livezilla.net/home/de/

...which also has free plans (see https://www.livezilla.net/shop/en/?action=preview).

I have integrated a chat-button into the applications homepage.

You can configure your working times. During workings times and when I'm online, my (paying) customers can chat with me, call us or send us a message. Outside working hours they can send a message. The fields like sender-name and sender-email are automatically filled according to the current user's appgini membership profile.

There is also a free smartphone app and a web app which can be used as a ticket system.

Hope this helps,
Regards,
Jan

Thanks for all your suggestions guys.

I was really looking for a chat box that would read the users in the database. (fully integrated)
I can use ajax chat, its easy to install, but \i would like the users to appear when logged in to the app,

I hope this is clear
