What's New

  • Agents will now see a warning message on the Conversation and Communication tabs when interactions come in through unassigned digital channels. (NEXUS-9717)

  • Starting with this release, Digital Channels has stopped supporting the Internet Explorer 11 browser (EOL). (NEXUS-9561)

Digital Channels: September 08, 2022Azure.png

Resolved Issues

  • Digital Channels now masks the PII (Personal Identifiable Information) data in typing notifications in chat transcripts. Previously, the PII was partially masked. Digital Channels now provides an option to apply the privacy rules scope of HISTORY to the chat transcript returned to the Designer. The tenant configuration option is accessible at privacy/consumerAPIScope with values such as NONE, HISTORY (default), and AGENT and allows you to modify the scope of the privacy rules that are applied. PII data may also be exposed in Typing Events and Typing Preview displayed to the agent. Digital Channels now supports the following new tenant options to control this:

    • privacy/storeTypingEventsInUCS to prevent Digital Channels to store TypingStarted/TypingStopped events into the UCS transaction history. The default option is true. To avoid storing the TypingStarted/TypingStopped events, set the option as false.
    • privacy/disableTypingPreview to disable typing preview functionality for a chat. When disabled, Digital Channels ignores the typing preview text and does not show it to an agent or store it in the chat transcript. By default, the typing preview is enabled. (NEXUS-9824)

  • Digital Channels now provides an option to apply the privacy rules scope of HISTORY for the data returned to the SpeechMiner. The tenant configuration option is accessible at privacy/historyAPIScope with values such as NONE, HISTORY (default), and AGENT and allows you to modify the scope of the privacy rules that are applied. (NEXUS-9825)

Digital Channels: August 31, 2022

Note: Availability of release 100.0.126.4147 for on-premises deployments is limited to select customers.

What's New

  • Agents can now see the digital channels that were configured for them to use, and the disabled channels are no longer displayed in the channel icons at the bottom of the Conversation and Communication tabs. The agents are only able to start outbound interactions with the allowed channels. (NEXUS-9609)

  • Digital Channels now supports the reporting of attached user data for public social interactions (for Facebook and Twitter). Previously, only private messages on Facebook and Twitter were supported. (NEXUS-9451)

Resolved Issues

  • Attachments in Twitter and Facebook messages are now downloaded with the complete file names and extensions. Previously, the file names contained caption text and had no extension. (NEXUS-8349)

  • Agents can now click an image in a chat interaction to expand it. Previously, when the agent had multiple interactions, the images were not expanded. (NEXUS-9484)

Known Issues

  • When a user creates a Standard Response with Rich Media templates in the Standard Responses management section of Designer, the field code values from the Insert Field Code menu do not get copied to the clipboard.

    Workaround: Create a new Standard Response of type Text/html response and insert the required field code values into the plain text part, and save it. To add field code values to your Standard Response with Rich Media template, copy the values from the plain text part and paste them where they are needed.
    Alternatively, use the Digital Channels Admin UI to get Standard Responses. There, the issue does not exist. (NEXUS-9724)

  • Limitation: Chat interactions do not support Standard Responses consisting of HTML tags or a combination of HTML and plain texts. In chat interactions, use plain text in Standard Responses. (NEXUS-9110)

    Workaround: Agents can refresh the page to restore the attachments icon. (NEXUS-9228)

  • In a browser window, only one agent login can access several workspaces (WWE, Designer, and so on). Digital Channels does not support multiple agent logins in a single browser window. (NEXUS-9243)

  • When a user sends a GIF file from a Facebook Public interaction, the GIF file and the accompanying messages (if any) are not delivered to agents. (NEXUS-9298)

  • When an agent logs into WWE using two different browsers or tabs, the chat conversations do not synchronize and the issue is reported as a chat event stream error. (NEXUS-9282)

  • When the agent refreshes the browser tab with an active Facebook public or Twitter public social interaction, the active interaction is not displayed and the agent cannot start the outbound interaction. This issue is observed in all previous releases.

Resolved Issues

  • For Facebook Messenger and Twitter Direct Messaging interactions, Digital Channels now correctly calculates the interaction start date for reporting data and all metrics that are calculated from the start date (for example, csg_SessionUntilFirstReplyTime). Previously, the start date was calculated to be before the actual start date. (NEXUS-8734 and NEXUS-8845)
