Update Contact Block

Use this block to update customer profile information in the Universal Contact Server Database, based on data attached to an interaction. You may specify certain information to update by specifying certain key-value pairs that represent the data to update. If certain parameters are not specified, then all contact attributes will be updated by default, based on all user data available. Important! See Mandatory User Data For UCS Blocks. Also see the section on Contact Identification and Creation in the eServices 8.1 User's Guide.

Use Case

  1. A customer sends an e-mail to the contact center, initiating a routing workflow.
  2. The routing workflow reads the user data from the e-mail.
  3. The user data is used to identify that this customer is an existing contact in the UCS database based on the customer's first and last name
  4. The routing workflow does a comparison of the customer's e-mail address in the e-mail, with the one in UCS database for this contact. They are different.
  5. The routing workflow updates the contact information in the UCS database with the new email address
