The Visitor Desk is a version of the Floating Visitor UI that isn’t integrated into your website. Rather, it’s served directly from the Unblu server. It appears as a Floating Visitor UI in front of a neutral background.
The Visitor Desk is typically used when an agent wants to give a visitor access to Unblu outside the context of any particular webpage. They do so by sending the visitor a link to the Visitor Desk.
Using the Unblu mobile SDK, you can build custom mobile apps for your visitors to use that support the same features as the Floating Visitor UI. For more information, refer to Introduction to the Unblu mobile SDKs.
