A unique key representing the visitor will be stored in the browser cookie using which the SalesIQ will remember the visitor.

1. Zoho CRM webform:
SalesIQ can identify the visitors only if the "Visitor Tracking" option is enabled while creating the CRM web form. If you have already added the web forms on your website without enabling the visitor tracking option, then enable the "Visitor Tracking" and update the web form code on your website.

The Smart Identifier is the 1x1 pixel that will be sent in the email to track the visitor's identity who is accessing the email. This will set a cookie in the visitor’s browser using which SalesIQ can identify the recipient by name and email when they visit your website in the future.
To include the smart identifiers code to the email, navigate to Settings > Developers > Integration and select your choise of EMS with SaleIQ and integrate. Then select the integrated campaign and click on Smart Identifiers section. A Campaign specific code will be provided in the Smart Identifier Code box. Now, copy the link and paste it into your email using the insert HTML option. When the recipient opens the email, the smart identifiers will help SalesIQ to identity them.

Smart Identifiers will not work if the recipient has disabled the image loading option in the email client. If the recipient chooses the image display option, the smart identifier image will set the cookie in the visitor’s browser.
Smart identifiers will not work for emails opened in Gmail and certain other email services because Gmail will not serve the smart identifier image sent along with the email directly to the recipient. Instead, it temporarily stores the image in its Gmail server and subserves it to the recipient from the Gmail server when the email is accessed. So smart identifiers may not set the cookie in the real visitor’s browser and track them.
While sending an email to Lead/Contacts from CRM, using the CRM Identifier links can track and identify visitors from CRM on your website. The CRM identifier links has the recipient's Name and Email attached to the SalesIQ Identifier parameters, which help to identify the visitors.
When the visitor clicks on the link, the details of the visitor will be captured by the SalesIQ identifier parameters. This helps us track the visitors from CRM, and it also updates the visitor interests and pages visited, etc., in the CRM account.
If the visitor doesn’t fall under any above categories and visits the website for the first time, SalesIQ assigns them a random Visitor ID until they provide their details. Once the visitor signs up for a chat and provides particulars in the chat widget, the visitor will be identified with their registered name. If the visitor leaves the website without giving their details, then SalesIQ will identify the visitor with the random Visitor ID when the visitor visits again. A small Asterisk (*) will be mentioned near the Visitor ID that denotes the repeate visitor. The operator can also update the visitor information manually while engaging with them.
