Customizing the look of your chatbot

You might well want to customize the way your chatbot looks on the webpage. Perhaps you have a business and the exact brand colour scheme is important to you.
It’s easy to do so. Select your bot, choose Channels and then click Customize.
It is possible to customize the following options in a Button:
- Style of the button (bubble, rounded, rectangle). There are additional options for the Rounded and Rectangle styles:
Show Icon - shows / hides the icon of the bot. If the icon is hidden, the background color will be displayed.

Label Color - the color of the custom text
Label Size - the size of the custom text
Label Weight - the thickness of the custom text
Label Style - the size of the custom text (Normal / Italic)

The editing screen allows you to customize the appearance of your bot button (and add a label) but crucially all the colors of the text box along with the banner are fully adjustable. You can either use the color rectangle that pops up when you click on the respective buttons, or, for the exact shade you want, enter your HTML color code.
