LiveSite Actions

In this section, you will select your preferred Display Mode, the Actions which your clients will be able to take online, as well as enable/disable the My Account - the client portal entry option.

Your Display Mode will determine where your additional actions display; you have a choice of displaying the additional actions across the bottom of the LiveSite Invite (Inline Actions), or to display them as floating menu on the side of your website (Floating Actions)
By default, the Inline Actions display mode will be selected. livesite_actions_display.PNG

In the Choose Actions section, you have the ability to rearrange the order of the actions by dragging-and-dropping them into your preferred order.
You can also rename the title of each action to best fit your needs.
Where these actions display will be determined by your Display Mode. You will also have the ability to enable/disable the My Account option in this area.

If you disable any of the Actions, they will not display on your LiveSite Widget.


LiveSite Invite

All additional actions will be available on your widget based on your Display Mode.
