Edit the Initial Message on Chat - First Chatbot

See how to edit the first bot's message visible to your website visitors. You've created this bot during the Tidio registration steps.

In this article, you'll learn:

During the new Tidio project registration, we ask you to set up a chatbot to engage with the visitors who come to your website for the very first time.

On the right, you can see an example of the message that will appear on your website.


You can pick the chatbot and change it later, which we explain in this article, or you can click on the blue customize this message text above the chatbot preview to adjust the bot's workflow right away. 



To edit your first chatbot, go to the Chatbots section (bot icon) located on the left side of your Tidio admin panel. 

Lookup your bot in the My Chatbots section, click on the three dots menu next to it and then choose Edit. You'll be transferred to the visual chatbot editor. 

Click on each node in the visual chatbot editor and adjust the messages to your preferences. 

Good job! Now, save the changes and activate the bot! 

Depending on the trigger settings in your bot, the previous version of the message may still be visible in your chat window after making changes. This happens because the messages in the widget are saved in the chat history. If you’d like to test the new, edited message, we recommend opening your website in an entirely new incognito window.
