Choose a Layout

AtomChat offers two Layouts
1. Docked Layout creates a floating chat widget at the bottom right/left corner of your website.

2. Embedded Layout embeds a chat interface inside any page of your website.


Also, please remember!

AtomChat layouts are not designed to be used together on the same page. If you add both layouts on the same page, please expect erratic behavior from the software.
