When you track your website with Altocloud, we also capture the history of conversation interactions between agents and customers. A conversation interaction is any interaction that involves a phone call or web chat. For each conversation interaction we create a corresponding conversation session.

Within a single conversation session, both web chats and phone calls can occur.

Supported channels

The following channels are supported as conversation sessions are:

  • Inbound calls
  • Outbound calls
  • Chat

How conversation sessions begin

A conversation session can begin when:

  • A customer calls the support center (inbound call)
  • When an agent calls a customer (outbound call)
  • When Altocloud offers a chat and the customer accepts the offer
  • When the customer initiates a chat directly on a web page (reactive chat)

How we verify contacts in a conversation

When a customer comes to your website, we attempt to verify their identity using their personal identifiable information (phone number or email address). Additionally, an agent can manually verify a customer. For more information, see About external contacts.

Conversation session cards


Agents see a separate session card for each conversation session. The session card includes:

Session card colors


The following table explains the significance of the session card colors.

Color Description
White Abandoned. The customer ended the conversation before the agent could assign a wrap-up code.
Gray Inactive. The conversation session has ended. The agent has assigned a wrap-up code.
Blue Active. The conversation session is ongoing.

Session card icons

As a conversation session progresses, the icon displayed in the session card may change. The following table explains the icons that appear in the session card.

Status and wrap up codes


The available statuses are:

  • Waiting: the customer is in the queue and waiting for an agent to accept the interaction
  • Ended by Customer: the customer has abandoned the call or chat
When an agent assigns a wrap-up code to end a call or chat, the wrap-up code replaces the status. For information on how to create wrap-up codes, see About wrap-up codes.

Conversation events in segments, outcomes, and action maps

During a conversation, we record the following events:

  • Routed (waiting in queue)
  • Connected to agent
  • Ended (either of the following)
    • Agent wraps up
    • Customer abandons (ends the session before the agent wraps it up)

You can use these events and their corresponding attributes to build segments and outcomes.

You can use these events to trigger an action map, but only if that action map uses an Architect flow action.

Web chats vs. web sessions


Agents see separate session cards for web sessions and conversation sessions:

  • A web session begins when a customer comes to a web page where the Altocloud tracking snippet is deployed. In the Session Library, you can customize the title for the conversation cards for web sessions. For more information, see Set the session card title.
  • A conversation session begins when a customer accepts an invitation to chat or initiates a web chat on their own. The title of a web chat is always Web Chat.

Scenario: Remind a customer to register their purchase for a warranty

You can create a segment based on a conversation journey event. For example, suppose you want a segment for customers who purchase a product after speaking with an agent. You could then use that segment to trigger an action map that reminds the customer to register the product for its warranty.

To implement this scenario:

  1. Create a wrap-up code called Completed sale.
  2. Create a segment called Completed sale.
  3. Build a content offer called Register product warranty.
  4. Build an action map:
