Setting up Profile Image

In this article, we will show you how to set or change your profile picture that is visible in the Microchat widget installed on your website.


In the MicroChat widget, we differentiate between two kinds of pictures:

  • The global view – when there’s no operator assigned to the chat yet
  • operator’s picture – when an operator joins the conversation

The global view is the first one your visitors will see when they enter your website, it will show all available operators:

If the visitor starts a chat by sending a message – the widget will move the operators’ avatars to the header. You will be able to see a view of the First Company’ pictures that you have added to the chat admin panel.

Then, the widget will switch the global view to the picture of the person that picked up the chat in the chat admin panel, showing it in the header of the chat. You will be also able to see the name of the agent.

Each operator can change the name and avatar individually by clicking on the current picture in the upper right corner of the chat admin panel. That will open a sidebar with the Profile settings option:

You can upload the global picture in the Setting >Chat Setting section, under the colour settings. We recommend uploading the company logo there:
