Conduct a Glance Cobrowse session with Video.

To join a Glance Cobrowse session with Video, Glance recommends that you place a clickable element, such as a link, button, or other object, at the footer of every web page. An agent can then ask the visitor to scroll to the bottom of whatever page they are on and click that element to start a session. See this page for more information on creating a Cobrowse button.

To join a Glance Cobrowse session with Video:

  1. The visitor clicks the element to start a session.

  2. The visitor receives a prompt to allow access to the camera. Once allowed, they will see the session code to provide to the agent. The cobrowse toolbar.

  3. The agent enters the code in the Agent Join Page or CRM.

  4. Depending how the group is configured, the agent will join with video on automatically, or they can click the video icon in the agent viewer to turn on their camera. Now the visitor and agent can see each other.
