Using Social Media Share Links
To locate your social media share links, click on your profile.
Click on your profile to access your social media share links.
- the purple chat icon to share a link to chat
- the green phone icon to share a link to start an audio call
- the blue video icon to share link to start a video call
The link will look something like this:
When you click on one of the social media buttons, a link will be copied to your clipboard. Share this link with a visitor. When the visitor clicks on the link, they’ll be able to start a chat, audio, or video call. All links will automatically send the visitor to your simulate page.
Customizing a Social Media Share Link
Customize your social media share links to redirect a visitor to any widget-enabled page on your domain. Copy the link to that page and add the hash symbol ('#') and everything after it from the copied link.
For example, if the link you copied from the social share button is https://accountId.domain/simulate#start-chat-a137 and the url to the page you want to share on is https://mydomain.foobar/home add the hash symbol (‘#’) and everything after it to the end of the url. For example, the link you’ll share with a visitor will be https://mydomain.foobar/home#start-chat-a137

Take this social share link for example:
The social share link consists of:
- Your Acquire account Id - abcd
- Your domain name - yourdomain.com
- The simulate page path parameter - simulate
- The social share link action - #start-chat
- Your agent Id - a111
If you want to redirect the visitor to your contacts page at https://abcd.yourdomain.com/contact, append the #start-chat-a111 to the url as such: https://abcd.yourdomain.com/contact#start-chat-a111
