Surfly options

Here, you can find the reference tables for each of the Surfly session options. You can choose the aspects of Surfly's functionality you want to integrate into your website and personalize your co-browsing sessions. These parameters can be set in the options panel or used in the Javascript or REST API.

Please note: Changes to the code will take priority over changes to the options panel.
