If the patron says they keep getting disconnected, try the following:

  • Send them another URL to a different chat widget from their institution (or another institution) to restart the session
  • Ask them to pop-out the chat box into a separate window
    • Use the Begin - Chat Expand script
  • Suggest they try a different browser
    • See LibraryH3lp's list of supported browsers. If they continue to experience problems, refer them to their institution so they leave with something they can use.
