On Monday, December 26th, 2022, we will release a new version of Talkdesk Digital Engagement.

 

This release includes the following new feature and fix for Digital Engagement:

 

New: 

  • Customization of text on Chat widget text

image1.png

There are two new keys to allow you to fully present the chat widget in a specific language or with the terminology that best fits your organization. Both keys allow you to customize these two elements of the ended chat screen: The message “This chat has ended” and the button ‘Start new chat’. To know how to apply these keys, follow the instructions available in this article.

To present the chat widget in different languages, create one chat touchpoint for each language. Use the text customization keys and the appearance configuration to present each chat widget in that specific language.

 

Fix:

  • Interaction duration on Reporting with incorrect information 

We have fixed the interaction duration on the “Messaging Contacts” dataset in Explore reporting. Previously it was showing extra 31 days when the interaction duration was less than 1 day. Now, the “Interaction Duration” query always represents the difference between the “Interaction Started” and “Interaction Finished” dates.

Enhancement:

  • Enhanced Global Settings Look & Feel

5_dec_2022_1.png

November 28, 2022

On Monday, November 28th, 2022, we will release a new version of Talkdesk Digital Engagement.

This release includes the following feature and enhancement for Digital Engagement:

 

New: 

  • Chat User Identification

28_nov_2022_1.png

Agents need to identify the contact person in chat interaction, rely on the information provided, and minimize time manually adding the contact details.   

Chat user identification enables Agents with reliable information about contact details through an automated process of identifying contact personas with no need for the agent to manually create/update contacts.   

To begin leveraging this functionality, use the variable td_contact_person_identification in order to send the phone number or email address of the contact person that you want Talkdesk to automatically save as a new contact or merge with an existing one. 

 

Note: This variable only needs to be configured within the setContext function available in the Chat Widget code snippet and does not need to be mapped as an argument in the Incoming Message flows in Talkdesk Studio.



Enhancement:

  • Email Touchpoints - New settings for usage type and direction

28_nov_2022_2.png

We are delivering a new visual organization for the usage types and directions for Email Touchpoints. With this change, we are allowing a touchpoint to be marked as “Notifications only” and, with this setting, those touchpoints will not be listed as an “Outbound” email touchpoint.

 

Note: No change is needed from the customer side. The previous settings were migrated to this new format.

 

 

 

November 21, 2022

On Monday, November 21st, 2022, we will release a new version of Talkdesk Digital Engagement.

 

This release includes the following features for Digital Engagement:

 

New: 

  • Closing Conversations on Email Touchpoint deletion

21_nov_2022_1.png

Admins managing a high volume of different touchpoints need to be able to delete touchpoints without needing to wait for all the interactions to be closed. Closing Conversations on Email Touchpoint deletion enables Admins to delete email touchpoints without manually closing all the ongoing interactions under that touchpoint. 

 

  • Chat Attachments

21_nov_2022_2.png

Chat Attachments enables agents to send and receive multimedia files, and documents for the chat channel, enhancing customer experiences.

 

  • Digital Activities and Conversation History tab

Note: An unexpected delay has occurred in the rollout of this functionality.

  • The feature requires an additional application to be installed in each account. Therefore, installation is expected to be completed over the next few days. 
  • Also, at this time, Conversation History will not contain the backfilling for previous conversations. Only new Digital conversations will be shown on Contacts App. 

Our team is currently working to make this functionality available as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.

21_nov_2022_3.png

Now, agents managing a high volume of interactions can easily access any contact person's conversation history. Conversation “History” tab in the Contacts application enables agents to access any contact person’s conversation history, providing faster and more personalized experiences.

 

  • Add Assign Automation Trigger Events for Digital Conversations

21_nov_2022_4.png

When a conversation is assigned, the supported integration actions can be triggered. It allows customers to create notifications, or register the assignment moment in 3rd party integration.

 

  • SMS & WhatsApp Channels integrated with Autopilot

21_nov_2022_5.jpeg

Talkdesk Autopilot™ provides an effective alternative to support customers in offline or peak hours, delivering a near-human customer experience. From now on, customers will also be able to add SMS and WhatsApp as channels for conversations between contact persons and Virtual Agents.

 

  • Incoming Messages Notifications (“Assigned to you” tab)

21_nov_2022_6.png

Agents need to be able to know whenever they receive a new message under the Assigned to you tab.   

Incoming Messages Notifications lets agents know when a new message arrives under the Assigned to you tab through a visual notification.

 

Enhancements: 

  • Default Outbound Touchpoint for Email

21_nov_2022_7.png

Now, agents can have the last selected Email Touchpoint as the default when starting a new outbound email conversation.

Note: This setting is stored locally on the browser’s cache, so if agents start a new session on a different browser or workstation, the default touchpoint value will not apply.

 

  • Channel Agnostic Default Dashboard for Digital

21_nov_2022_8.png

We have adapted our Digital Engagement dashboard to become channel agnostic and be constantly updated with the values from the newest developed channels.

Now, whenever you add a new channel to your account, you will be able to see the number of conversations that arrive at those channels. You can also compare them with the remaining ones, without the need of checking another dashboard or doing any adjustments.

Note: This feature requires a contact to exist. Unknown contacts will not appear in search results.

 

  • Filter by Queue and Touchpoint on Inbox App

31_oct_2022_2.png

This release includes the following new features for Digital Engagement:

 

New: 

  • Dispositions for Digital Conversations

From now on, the Disposition Set availability will depend on the Conversations’ Ring Groups, guaranteeing all channels behave the same way when talking about dispositions. 

Since this is a transition period from the previous configuration, if there is a situation where the Disposition Set is unavailable, it’s because:

  •  The conversation does not have any Ring Groups associated.  
  • The Disposition Set Ring Groups don’t match with the Conversations Ring Groups.

10_oct_2022_1.png

  • Digital Connect Early Access

Digital Connect is the set of Application Programming Interface (API) endpoints that will allow you to leverage all features that Talkdesk offers (agent experience, unified reporting, configurable routing, automations, among others) while bringing your own solution to handle the Contact Person side (the interface where your customers will be interacting with your brand).

Scenarios that we will be solving:

  • Integrating non-Talkdesk chatbots.
  • Integrating with proprietary messaging clients (client side).
  • Integrating with proprietary messaging services (server side).

Scenarios covered on the first milestone:

  • Agents starting new conversations (Outbound) and sending messages that arrive at the external system.
  • Contacts starting new conversations (Inbound) and sending messages from the external system that arrive at Talkdesk.
  • Touchpoint management with the ability to associate ring groups to each touchpoint.
  • Contact identification through contact email. 
  • Unified reporting with the ability to see all messages sent and received.
  • Simplified and advanced routing (Incoming message Studio flows). 
  • Ability to route the conversation to a Autopilot.

 

 

October 3, 2022

On Monday, October 3rd, 2022, we will release a new version of Talkdesk Digital Engagement™.

 

This release includes the following new features for Digital Engagement:

 

New: 

  • Update Idle Time for Digital Interactions
    This functionality will update the idle time calculation when an Agent is on multiple simultaneous interactions. Currently, for voice, the idle time is calculated based on the amount of time since the last interaction (inbound voice call, manual outbound call, Agent-to-Agent call, automated outbound, or a dedicated line) has finished. Before this release, idle time was reset only for Agents on voice interactions, which could lead to unequal assigning of interactions. With this new capability, assigning digital interactions to Agents will be under identical conditions. Updating Idle time for digital interactions, will reset sorts of Agents according to the time since they accepted and ended a digital interaction.
  • The “Live Unassigned Contacts List” widget
    This widget shows the digital contacts not assigned to an Agent. You can see how long the contact has been unassigned and the queue associated with the contact along with the contact information. It’s also possible to filter per channel. 
  • Simplified and Advanced Routing for Facebook Messenger3_oct_2022_1.png

Admins can assign Facebook messages to queues or to incoming message flows through Studio. It is now possible to:

          • Send automated messages.
          • Add Time and Calendar-based rules.
          • Decide if the Facebook conversation should be directly assigned to a specific Agent.
          • Decide if the Agent should be able to accept or reject the Facebook conversation.

Supervisors will be able to perform analysis based on the “Queue” field, such as:

        • The number of conversations arriving in each Queue to compare the load between them.
        • Understand if there’s a tendency of constantly transferring from a specific queue to another. This might mean that the Studio flows will need to be adjusted.
        • Understand who are the most responsive Agents in each particular queue.
        • Have Supervisors analyze only the queue they are managing, instead of having to look at every conversation.

Enhancements:

  • Friendly Name for SMS Touchpoints

On the SMS touchpoint settings inside the Channels app, it is now possible to edit the “Friendly Name” for each SMS number, giving your Agents the possibility to easily identify the purpose of the interaction. For the same phone number, you can only have one “Friendly Name” for voice and another for SMS. The “Friendly Name” will initially appear as “N/A” and a preferred name can then be selected, which will only be associated with the SMS channel (not applicable for voice).

  • Wrap-up Improvements

In order to provide a more adequate metric regarding the effective duration of each contact, “Wrap-up” duration will be detached from the “Contact Duration”. This way, you will be able to easily visualize the time spent on interaction and the wrap-up phase separately.
