2. The duration of active sessions

2.1 On the administration

An active session on the iAdvize administration lasts 20 minutes. If administrators/managers are inactive for more than 20 minutes, they will automatically be disconnected and redirected to the administration login page.


2.2 On the conversation panel

An active session on the conversation panel is limited for 24h, then they will automatically be disconnected and redirected to the login page


2.3 On the live chat (display of iAdvize on the website side) 

If you are still using the old chatbox, an active session on the live chat lasts 30 minutes.
As soon as visitors perform actions on iAdvize contact elements (reducing a contact button, closing an invitation, etc) and/or initiate a chat conversation, the history of their actions and messages exchanges are saved and accessible for 30 minutes. Then, they are reset.
