There are 3 ways to install this plugin
- Install using plugin (forWordPress)
- Copy and Paste the Code inside Website’s Theme code (as guided)
- To install the widget using Google Tag Manager:
We personally find the third option much easier.
From your Google Tag Manager panel, click on New Tag. Choose the Custom HTML Tag option. Paste the tawk.to widget code inside the HTML container. Click on the Continue button to proceed. Add a rule that will fire the tag on All Pages. Click on the Create Tag button when you are done. You will need to name the tag (e.g tawk.to) and then Save the name. To finalize adding tawk.to to your site, you need to publish your container. Click on Publish button in the top right portion of the screen to proceed. Finally, click on the Publish Now button.
