Clients sometimes need to use a custom URL for bots and widgets. The steps in this guide apply to both:

  • Using custom URLs for widgets and column datasets  

Do the following steps to change a bot’s URL:

  1. Log in to the MSPbots app as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to Bots on the menu.
  3. Click on the bot that needs to be modified. For example: Stale Ticket Alert (No Email)

    2. Go to the list of generated Bot Messages and hover to a specific ticket. You should see the new URL appear in the lower-left corner of the window. Alternatively, you can check the data on the widget and click a ticket link. This should redirect to a new tab where the new URL is reflected.
