    Hi Haesh,

    Thank you for your interest. Current version(1.2.1) is not having any analytics. We are planning for an update with click tracking.

    Also note that the users will have the chat history in their Whatsapp. The Osclass admin will not be able to see that as per Whatsapp privacy policy.

    Hi ,

    Is there any way that we can make this avaiable to only restricted users (Like premium users). For others This Icon should be disabled. Can we do that or can we expect this in future versions

    SiteSteroid AUTHOR4 months ago

    Hi Punesh,

    By default the plugin provides option to restricting the button to registered only.

    If you have a premium users registered in your Osclass website, then you will be able to do it with little tweaking of the plugin. Please open a support ticket after purchase. Our development team will help you to restrict it to premium users.
