Multiuser and whitelabel Boei

💪 Added

Boei now has two new features that allow you to work with multiple users 🚀

Subaccounts / subusers
Subusers are commonly created to separate usage by team, product, customer, and more.
Each subuser has its own buttons, helpers, and stats, but it's still billed to the same main Boei account balance.
Administrators can manage the buttons of their subusers but the subuser can only manage their own.
If you don't want to restrict access but all work on the same buttons, you can look into the Collaborators feature.

Collaborators
Collaborators feature in Boei is great if you are working together with multiple people on the same buttons and helpers. If you want to restrict access, you can look into the subusers feature.

Option to add subject to contact form

💪 Added

Feature

Some customer ticket-systems need to use a subject line. Inventing a subject line can be difficult so having a field in Boei populated with it works well.

Out of office for selected helpers

💪 Added

You can now set business hours and hide specific helpers when you are offline.
This helps to reduce phone calls or Whatsapp messages when you are sleeping.

Videos are easier to understand than text, so I made this video to explain how it works:
https://youtu.be/tfhs9j8W864

Helpers are hidden when you are out of office. This comes from a UX perspective: it is annoying to click something, only to find out that it's not available.

This feature is the most upvoted one to date, thanks for your votes 😍
