The main requirement for the integration to work properly with Kommo is the contact data of the client on JivoChat’s side. In the scenario where the fields «Name» and «Email» are not filled, Kommo will not receive data. Make sure to fill these fields out.
As an alternative, you can ask your clients for their contact data before beginning the dialogue. Here’s the steps to make that work:
- Go to “Manage” > “Channels” > “Settings” at the bottom of the channel name
- Select «Contacts form» and set checkboxes on for “name” and “Email” at the bottom of the Contact form menu. Then, go to the section «Form fields» and set-up “When to ask for contacts” field to “Before chat”.
Do note: the main chunk of data will be sent after dialogue is finished. To make it happen, use the button “Finish Chat”. Otherwise, the data won’t be passed to Kommo.
