- Write the widget id into “Widget id” field in the ImbaChat settings in the admin panel of your website. After that click “Connect to the widget”
- If you don't have a widget yet, click "Create a widget" at the same page. Connection between your website and ImbaChat server will be automatically configured.

- The first shortcode creates a group, includes 2 fields for filling in information, the first is the name of the group, the second is the string identifier of the group (this parameter is needed for the second shortcode):
[ic_create_group classI="(class name for the input field)" classB="(class name for the button)" buttonName="(button name)"]
- The second shortcode adds a button that adds the user who clicked the button. The pipe parameter defines the group.
