GeckoChat is a 3rd party live chat system.
The University will be trialling GeckoChat as an additional contact method to the traditional email or phone options.
Talk to Unknown User (gh448) in Marketing and Communications for access to the GeckoChat dashboard.
Each GeckoChat channel is a specific chat instance designed for a certain audience (Staff, students, undergraduates etc.) and a particular topic ('Postgraduate courses').
You'll need admin-level permissions to create a new channel. Other permission levels can edit pre-existing channels but not create them.
To get things looking as we'd like, we need to change a few things in the GeckoChat channel configuration options. There is currently no way to 'template' these customisations so that every new channel is styled in a similar manner.
Copies of the assets used in the Gecko customisations can be found in
lens/universal/images. Unfortunately GeckoChat does not provide an option to link to pre-existing assets in Lens. Each channel imports its own assets.
