Broadcast Messages

Workspace enables agents to receive messages that are sent simultaneously (broadcast) to multiple contact center parties. You must use an application that can publish messages, associated by topic, to a common communication DN. Workspace employs a simple protocol based on communication DN and provisioning to enable this functionality.

Agents can be provisioned to receive messages that are addressed, by topic, to a property of the agent, a property of an agent group, or a property of a role (see the Procedure: Enabling agents to view Broadcast Messages).

Messages are displayed to agents by an Interactive Notification that is similar to the new interaction Interactive Notification. An audio alert can be configured to alert agents when a new broadcast message arrives. Messages are also displayed in the Workspace Main Window as a summary table in the Messages drop-down area. If the agent opens the message, a detailed view is displayed. If the agent uses the Gadget view, messages are displayed in a message gadget.

Attributes

A broadcast protocol message is defined by the following attributes:

  • Message: The content of the message.
  • Sender: The identity of the sender.
  • Message Type: The type of message, such as Error, Information, Notification, and so on.
  • Subject: The subject of the message (optional).
  • Priority: The relative importance of the broadcast message. The following subcategories are predefined; however, you can also configure your own values:
    • Minimal
    • Low
    • Normal
    • High
    • Important
  • Date: The date sent, in local time of the agent.
  • Topic: To which topic the message was sent.
  • Custom Data: Any custom data included with the message.

Protocol

Use the following protocol on your supervisor client configuration:

IWS_Message
IWS_Sender
IWS_MessageType
IWS_Subject
IWS_Priority
IWS_Date (RFC1123 pattern.)
IWS_Topic
IWS_CustomData

The following is an example of a UserEvent configuration:

Event:EventUserEvent
 Server:65200
 ReferenceID:7
 CustomerID:Resources
 ThisDN:BroadcastDN
 UserData:
 (Str) IWS_Subject Coffee Break
 (Int) IWS_Priority 3
 (Str) IWS_Message Please take your coffee break NOW !!!
 (Str) IWS_Date Thu, 11 Feb 2010 16:15:16 GMT
 (Str) IWS_Topic Agent4
 (Str) IWS_Sender Ministrator
 (Str) IWS_MessageType Error
 Seconds:1265904964
 USeconds:234000
 Server Time:11/02/2010@17:16:04.234

Configuration options

You can use the following options in the interaction-workspace section to configure Broadcast Messaging:

Message types can be customized by adding the following lines to the Genesyslab.Desktop.Modules.Windows.en-US.xml dictionary file:

<Value Id="Broadcast.MessageType.System" String="System"/>
<Value Id="Broadcast.MessageType.Error" String="Error"/>
<Value Id="Broadcast.MessageType.Information" String="Information"/>
<Value Id="Broadcast.MessageType.Internal Note" String="Internal Note"/>

The value that is set in the String property is displayed as the message type.

Provisioning Broadcast Messages

Procedure

Enabling agents to view Broadcast Messages

Purpose:

To enable an agent to receive and view messages that are sent simultaneously (broadcast) to multiple contact center parties.
Prerequisites

Start

  1. Allow the following Broadcast Message privilege (see Broadcast Privileges) for the role to which the agent is assigned (refer to the Creating a Role and allowing a Workspace privilege and assigning a Role to an agent or agent group):
    • Can Use Broadcast Message
  2. Create a communication DN and configure it in broadcast.dn.
  3. Configure the broadcast message topics to which an agent can be subscribed by using broadcast.subscribed.topics.
    Topics can be associated with different configuration objects such as agents ($Agent$), agent groups ($AgentGroup$), and roles ($Role$); or they can be the names of custom topics such as team (for example, billing) or site (for example main_campus).
  4. Ensure that you have a Sender application that implements the protocol described in Protocol, above, that sends messages to topics that match what is configured in your system.
