Cannot customize the Conversational UI's input area

Hi,

We use the Conversational UI but need to customize the input area. The changes that we need are not merely cosmetic: for example, we want to replace the existing input with a textarea so that our users can have meaningful conversations and not limit themselves to one-liners.

We saw that you already support templates for messages and attachments: can we have input template support as well?

Thank you,
Mihai

This customization is badly needed

Hi Stefanie,

Thank you for voting and commenting.

We track the demand for all Kendo UI for Angular feature requests and prioritize our development plans accordingly. At the moment, the requested functionality is not added to our RoadMap for implementation. Indeed, there isn't a simple workaround available. Probably the soonest this enhancement can be released is by the end of the third quarter of this year. However, the time for the release isn't fixed as there are multiple various factors such as work load, availability of resources, priority, severity etc that influence the development process.

Upvoting.  Our product management would like to make the input field multi-line as well so our agents can see several sentences of that they are typing.  Vertical scrolling if necessary rather than scrolling horizontally.  The priority is so high, we will need to hack around this or switch to a different chat UI component.

Hi Mihai,

Indeed, the feature is not yet added to our planning and I am afraid that I am unable to provide a time estimate for its release at the moment.

Thanks for the response, Svetlin.

I don't expect this to be implemented soon so, in the meantime, we'll probably hack around this.

Regards,
Mihai

Hi Mihai,

Indeed, such functionality would prove useful for the Conversational UI Component. This is why, I converted this ticket to be a public feature request item, so that other users can vote for it:
https://feedback.telerik.com/kendo-angular-ui/1412519-cannot-customize-the-conversational-ui-s-input-area

This will allow us to track the demand for the feature and eventually provide it in a future release of Kendo UI for Angular. Thank you for the feedback.
