Introducing AppExchange Chat! With AppExchange Chat, you can have live conversations with partner experts directly on AppExchange listings. Get the information that you need to find the right app or expert for your business — all without ever leaving AppExchange.

How can AppExchange Chat help me?

AppExchange Chat helps you make decisions faster by giving you easy access to the information that you need. No emails, no phone tag — just real-time answers directly from the folks who know their apps the best.

How does AppExchange Chat work?

If you’ve used instant messaging with family or friends, you’ll be right at home with AppExchange Chat. 

Here’s how it works:

  1. Find an AppExchange Chat-enabled listing that aligns with your business needs.
  2. At the bottom right of the listing, click the chat icon. 
  3. In the window that appears, click the button to start a chat. 
  4. That’s it! AppExchange Chat will connect you with a partner expert. If the partner is away, you’ll have a chance to schedule a live meeting at a time that works best for you.

Tip: Do you prefer voice calls over chat? No problem! While chatting with a partner, click the telephone icon at the top of the chat window to continue the conversation using a voice over internet protocol (VoIP) connection.

How do I know if AppExchange Chat is available on a listing?

If you’re browsing search results or the home page, look for a chat icon. The icon indicates that AppExchange Chat is available and there’s a partner expert ready to answer your questions.

Who am I talking to when I have a conversation with AppExchange Chat?
