Check whether the current time is in business hoursUpdated 2 months ago

This suggestion isn't an official feature of our Chat widget, so our support for it is limited - we recommend that it be implemented by someone with a technical background.


You can use the following method to determine whether the Chat business hours (as defined in the helpdesk) are displayed correctly - this variable is only trustworthy after Chat initialization:

1<script>
2var initGorgiasChatPromise = (window.GorgiasChat) ? window.GorgiasChat.init() : new Promise(function (resolve) { window.addEventListener('gorgias-widget-loaded', function () { resolve();})});
3
4initGorgiasChatPromise.then(function() {
5 GorgiasChat.isBusinessHours() // Will return true or false.
6})
7</script>
