An action map represents the steps that Genesys Predictive Engagement takes to achieve a particular business result.

Actions

Web messaging: Feature coming soon!
If you are a Genesys Cloud customer, we encourage you to use the new web messaging feature to replace web chat. To use web messaging in an action map, select the web messaging action and not the web chat action.

For each action map, you must select its action.

  • Some action maps use web actions. Web actions engage with a visitor directly. For example, you can create an action map that presents a web chat to visitors who go to a particular page for your current promotional campaign. The chat might ask the visitor whether they want to speak directly with someone in sales, who could then help them complete their purchase.
  • Some action maps, such as Architect flows, use actions that react to visitor behavior, but do not interact with a visitor directly.

Qualified action maps

Customer segments: Feature coming soon!
When you create an action map, you define its trigger. The trigger determines when the action map is "qualified." When an action map is qualified, it means that Genesys Predictive Engagement could use it, depending on the other offer-related considerations.

Action maps that qualify from a visitor segment assignment only trigger once per assignment in a visitor lifetime. After that, the action maps no longer qualify.

The types of triggers that you can define are:

  • Who the visitor is (what group or segment the visitor belongs to)
  • What actions the visitor takes on your website

Offered action maps

Web messaging: Feature coming soon!
If you are a Genesys Cloud customer, we encourage you to use the new web messaging feature to replace web chat.

The following considerations determine whether a qualified action map gets offered to a visitor:

  • Priority: The action map's priority determines which action map is offered in the event that multiple action maps are qualified for a visitor.
  • URL: For web-based actions (web chats, web messaging, and content offers), you can apply an action map to specific webpages.
  • Timing: When you select the action for an action map, you specify when the action works.
  • Schedule: For action maps that offer web chats, you can select a schedule that indicates when the contact center is open to interact with visitors.
  • Activation status: An action must be active for it to work.
