Thanks for the feedback on the pop up, everyone. We're implementing some changes to it so that it doesn't pop up as much. Stay tuned.

I agree with the other posters, is it possible to disable the popup?

Not loving the chatbot. Can we create a poll on how users feel about it? If it is helpful for people then it should stay and I can deal with it. ?

I was happy when the days of pop-ups and blinking things were gone, but they seem to have returned.

Ditto what Karen says.
