Label Button
If you wan a more detailed notification for when the customer first lands on your page, you can configure the label button which is a long rectangular box at the bottom of the page.
If the customer does not click the label button, it will only appear once per site visit.
So:
1) When first logging onto the site the label button will always appear

3) When the customer clears cookies or restarts the web browser then the label button should reappear.
The character range is 4-30.

Channel. io widget customization

If you want to change the button and image which appears for the button with your own brand logo, we recommend using the customization button.
PC Button customization
You can customize your PC web button with a minimum size of 80x80 px and a maximum size of 560x200 px. It will be shown at 1/2 size to maintain highest visual quality.
If using windows, the best visual quality occurs when using a file of equal size (100x100 for example)
Mobile Web customization
The recommended size for images on mobile web is at least 64x64px and maximum 180x140px. It will be displayed in 1/2 size of the uploaded image to support high resolution.

Advanced Settings

If you want your channel button to only appear on certain pages, you can set up a white list.
Through the whitelist, you must input the domain for the page which you want the Channel button to appear on. IF whitelist in enables, then the whitelisted domains will be the only pages which the button will appear.
For the whitelisted domain, you must include either http or https.
Tip The whitelist applies to all domains sharing the same string. So if you want the channel to appear on a certain chain of pages, you should include the most basic common domain: for example, if you want your channel button to appear only on the contact pages you would whitelist the domain with https:/example.com/contact
