This is the history interface where you can see details about all of the site entrances and conversations.



Every website visit and every chat conversation are saved in Sitehood's secured database.

You can always stay posted about the sites visits number, conversation number, leads number and more and even watch every single message that was sent in the chat.

To view this information, visit the history interface and conduct a search.

If you have only one site you can ignore this section.

If you have more than one website registered to your site, remember that you can choose one or more of the sites which details you would like to view. At least one site must be selected.

Search menu
