Release Notes | May 31, 2021 | Talkdesk Omnichannel



On Monday, May 31st, 2021, we are releasing version 4.6 of Talkdesk Omnichannel™. This release introduces several new features and enhancements, including:


  • Agent
    • Internal prompt character limit increased from 140 to 1000 characters. 
    • “Blocklisted Words” replaced with “Blocklists”, and “Blocklisted Word” with “Blocked Word” throughout the application.
  • Supervisor
    • “Supervise Chats” menu merged with the “Dashboard” within the “Customer Care Console”, and all the necessary action controls from this new unified dashboard will be surfaced.

  • Admin
    • Self-managed file destinations created under the “Client Admin Console” → “Settings” → “File Destinations” to avoid reports going through any third-party email gateway. 
    • New field called “Department” added to a group entity within the “Groups” menu to help capture useful business information, such as a business unit or a cost center tag that can be used for reporting.
    • Client admins enabled to form-encode the “Pre-chat Form Attributes parameter by selecting the “Form-encode Request Body” checkbox within “Events and Rules”, in cases where the endpoint being called mandates such requirements for security reasons.


  • Unwanted change of agent status to “Available” whenever the client admin adds a team to the logged in agent’s profile.
  • “Oops” error manual login retry upon a failed authentication. 
  • Disappearing group chats under “My Chats” upon clicking on the “Refresh” button.
  • Mismatch between the “Chat Log” and “Get Chats” API data regarding timestamp in chat transcripts.
  • Wrong calculation of “Avg. First Response” time.
  • Closure of LiveChat widget upon the website’s visitor click on “Skip” or “Take a Survey” (when a survey is triggered by the agent manually).
  • Deactivation of the “Weekly” tab on the “Trends” screen upon a time zone change.
  • Intelligent routing chats not assigned/routed to the configured agent when the Auto Assign to Last Agent setting is disabled for a team.
  • Issue in the Intelligent Routing rule that failed to trigger the inbound email Subject Contains condition.
