Dynamic polling

  • WebChat's GMS REST mode now utilizes dynamic polling instead of a fixed 3-second poll rate. The poll rate increases when the user sends messages and decreases over time as they become idle. This increases responsiveness for the user without overburdening the server. (CXW-2167)

What's New

Deployment IDs

  • Genesys Widgets now supports Deployment IDs. This allows you to specify multiple configurations, each with a unique deployment ID that prevents cookies and other session data from carrying over to a page with a different deployment ID. For example, you can use one deployment ID for your public site and one deployment ID for users who are logged in, to prevent an authenticated chat from restoring after the user logs out.

Resolved Issues

  • Callback Widget now correctly shows the selected country code for the phone number field. Previously, deleting a phone number from the callback entry would also remove the country code and it could not be re-added. (CXW-1828)

  • A fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is no longer required for cookies to persist across page refreshes. Test environments like localhost or direct IP addresses are now compatible with our cookies. Previously, cookie-based features like WebChat restore would not function on a site without a FQDN.

Resolved Issues

  • The Authorization header is now passed correctly when lazy-loading Genesys Widgets. (CXW-1793)

July 27, 2018 (

What's New

Lazy-load plugins

Toaster plugin

  • The Toaster plugin has a new event, Toaster.opened, that is published when a toast is opened.

Resolved Issues

  • JavsScript use strict mode no longer triggers an error when using a dropdown in a custom form. (CXW-1734)
  • This release disables the plugins configuration array in _genesys.widgets.main. Previously, using this array might have caused unexpected JavaScript errors. (CXW-1731)
  • Dropdowns and textareas no longer reset to text inputs when using the custom form feature. (CXW-1710)
  • Genesys Widgets now correctly collects and transmits user agent details for Microsoft Internet Explorer 10/11 and Edge browsers. This allows chat sessions to receive more accurate user agent details for these browsers. (CXW-1697)

June 26, 2018 (

What's New

Interaction Lifecycle Event

  • Each widget now publishes a new Interaction Lifecycle Event (“submitted”) whenever a form is submitted by a visitor. This event includes standard lifecycle metadata including the Form Registration data submitted by a visitor when starting a new interaction (WebChat and Callback). This can be used for more accurate client-side JavaScript logic alongside other Interaction Lifecycle Events published by Widgets.

What's New

Resolved Issues

  • The Offers Widget now provides an option to use client-side localization. (CXW-1354)
  • Fixed an issue in custom forms where the check box input type was not sending the appropriate selected value. Previously, even though the Send transcript check box was deselected, Widgets would still send the user data. (CXW-1391)
  • Fixed an issue where localization override was not happening as expected. Previously, the default localization strings were absent for Webchat and Callback resulting in an App.setLanguage error in the browser console.(CXW-1394)
  • The Callback Widget is now redesigned to appear as docked in the bottom-right of the web page for desktop browsers. Additionally, you can customize labels and input fields in the registration form so they can be propagated as Key Value Pairs (KVP) to the Callback API. (CXW-1404)
