Setting Up Social Connect

To integrate your Maven WebChat account with Facebook Messenger and Instagram, in your WebConsole, go to Settings > Connect to Social and click on the blue Configure button.

Then Connect to integrate your Maven WebChat with Facebook Messenger and Instagram.

How To Check If Your Connection Works

To check your existing connection in the WebConsole, go to Settings > Connect to Social > Configure. Connected account will appear in pop-up window. 

How The Social Channel Integration Works 

New messages sent to you via Facebook Messenger and Instagram direct message will show up in your WebConsole chats. User names will match the social account name. 

You should also see icons next to each name determining if the customer came in from Facebook Messenger, Instagram, or through the flow of the chatbot.

Notifications work the same as your website chat window. You will only receive a notification for a new chat when the bot escalates the chat to a live agent. You can view all messages by filtering your Chat panel to ‘All Conversations’.

How To Disconnect

To disconnect your accounts, go to Settings > Connect to Social > Configure > Trash Icon
