Release Notes December 14th 2021

This article provides an overview of changes and additional features included in the Puzzel release implemented in the evening of December 14th, 2021

The changes made in this release mainly concern the Puzzel Contact Centre (Admin Portal and Agent Application), Chat application and Puzzel WFM, Puzzel Case Management

Note that some of these features may require a customised set-up before they can be activated. In addition, some features may have a set-up and/or monthly cost element associated to it.

Admin Portal

Transfer social media requests

Until now, an agent has not been able to transfer a social media request to another agent or queue after he/she accepted it, but from now on, it is possible, if this option is turned on.

To give all agents or selected user groups access to transfer Social media requests to other agents and/or queues, Allow social media transfer to agent and/or Allow social media transfer to queue in the new accordion Social Media on page Users – Products must be turned on.

By default, admin users can not see accordion Social Media on page Users – Products, but customer main admins (with access to page Users – Access Control - Administration) can give all or selected admin users access to this new accordion by turning on Show pagegroup social media.

Allocation after transfer

If a Social media request is transferred to another queue, it will be allocated to an agent on this queue when it’s “first” in this queue.

If a Social media request is transferred to another agent, we are actually transferring it back to the same queue with this new agent as the reserved agent, and with reserved time as defined in the property Transferred social request reserved time in minutes (default = 5, but you may change it to what you think is “best”, e.g. 30).

The transferred social media request will be allocated to the agent it’s transferred to if this agent becomes ready with a profile containing more than just phone within the reserved time, but when the reserved time has ended, the request might be allocated to any agent logged on to this queue.

To make it possible to transfer a social media request to a user that is not logged on with a social media profile, we had to adjust how “agent reservation” works for media type social media. Until now, a social media request with a reserved agent has been reserved for the agent for the reserved time only as long as the reserved agent was logged on, but from now on it will be reserved to the agent the whole reservation time regardless of the agent’s status.

Real-time and historical statistics 

  • A social media request that agent1 transferred to Q2, will be counted as offered and answered both on the initial queue and on Q2.
  • A social media request that agent1 transferred to agent2, will be counted as offered to and answered on the initial queue 2 times (with different queue times and different agents), since it was actually transferred to the same queue with a 'reserved' agent. 

Agent application

Transfer social media requests

Requires that the option "Allow social media transfer to agent and/or Allow social media transfer to queue" is set to on.

After an Agent has accepted an incoming social request there is a now a new transfer button added to allow agents to transfer requests to another agent or queue.

After clicking the button the Agent can then search for other Queues that support the social media type as well as other Agents that have social media as a skill. Offline Agents with social media as skill will also be shown as social media can be an asynchronous channel. When transferring the request a transfer comment can be added to the request describing the reason for the transfer.

The receiving agent has visibility of the transfer history using the new transfer history button. The button is only visible if there are one or more comments added.

This is available for all social channels.

Chat application

Support link option buttons from bots

We are now supporting bots being able to send option buttons and link buttons in the same structured menu. Until now these have been shown as separate and independent elements. Link buttons are shown with an "external" icon on the right hand side and requires a custom setup in the bot script (KML), just like with the option buttons. Clicking on an option button will still take you a step further in the menu dialog, but clicking on a link button will open a URL in a new browser tab.

  • Clicking on an option button does not affect link buttons
  • Clicking on a link button does not affect option buttons
  • You can click on both an option button and link buttons in a menu
A mix of option and link buttons in the same menu.
A link button can be selected without affecting the   option buttons.
An option button can be selected without affecting the link buttons.
A link button can be selected after an option button is selected.

Support file attachments from end user

We are now supporting the end user to add file attachments in a chat dialog. Up until now only agents have been able to do this. On the end users side we are scanning the attached files using ClamAV in Azure. This feature is by default disabled, but can be enabled individually per chat configuration through a new chat admin property called "Allow end user to attach files [fileAttachments]".

Note that this feature uses Azure for temporarily storing the attachments. Be advised to check your company's Data Protection Agreement (DPA) within Puzzel before enabling this feature.
