Responses Shortcuts


Your system might be set up to enable you to type shortcut keywords into the text composition field of email, chat, and other interactions that automatically add common responses to your interactions.

Ask your administrator or supervisor what the shortcut keywords are for your organization.

If a response has a shortcut keyword associated with it, when you select the response in the Responses view, the shortcut keyword is displayed above the preview and in the Shortcut column of the responses tree.

To use a shortcut, type the prefix specified by your company (for example, "#") followed by the keyword for the response you want to insert, followed by Ctrl+Space. If your prefix is "#" and the keyword is "sale", then you type: #sale+Ctrl+Space
