I have a LiveAgent custom chat page and want a file sending feature: I wants that a client can share files with operator during a salesforce LiveAgent session.

Is it possible?


Yes it can be done similar to standard Live Agent File Transfer feature. You have to add <liveAgent:clientChatFileTransfer /> inside </liveAgent:clientchat> element.

To enable Transfer Files During a Chat feature please follow this link or Live Agent for Support Agents.


First Operator has to initiate the File Transfer Request from Service Console as below.

Then client can see a link saying "Upload or drag your file here." and a Cancel button. By clicking this button client can upload the files.

You can change the text of the link and cancel button by using these attributes fileTransferUploadLabel, fileTransferCancelFileLabel available for liveAgent:clientChatFileTransfer. Check this link for more details.

Also, you can add CSS to change the style of the link and cancel button as per your need.
