  2. A form window will open in the AddChat widget, asking about their Name & Email.

  3. After submitting, the Guest can start chatting.

AddChat auto-convert the Guest conversations to Registered user conversations, when the Guest Register on the website with the same Email that he/she used as a Guest. Let's see what it is-
