Use Case

  1. An inbound interaction initiates a routing workflow.
  2. Based on user data attached to the interaction, the contact is identified from Universal Contact Server (UCS), and the interaction's user data is updated.
  3. The user data is then assigned to variables and is then used to provide an automated response that is personalized with the First Name, Last Name and the contact address of the contact.

The Identify Customer block has the following properties. The behavior of some properties can vary depending on whether you are in offline or online mode.
