Create a Beacon
Launch the Beacon builder under Manage → Beacon to create your all-in-one embeddable chat, email contact, and knowledge base widget. Customize to match the color scheme of your website, and decide if you want to use for Email, Docs, Chat, or a any combination of those three!
Once you’ve got your Beacon just the way you want it, it’s time to copy the embed code to your website. You can continue to tweak your Beacon in Help Scout and all updates will be automatically reflected on your website as they are saved.
