New Unsolicited Tweets and Messages
The Workspace User's Guide describes how to create and send outbound unsolicited messages to a Twitter user.
Emoji and emoticon support
Workspace supports standard emojis and emoticons, both inbound and outbound. You see best results when the Segoe UI Emoji font is installed on your system.
In general, Workspace supports Unicode 6 emojis, but does not support the and emojis. These emojis display as empty boxes in both public and private messages.
Use the Standard Response Library
When replying to a Tweet or creating a new unsolicited Tweet, you can insert a standard response. Click the vertical Responses button in the middle of the window to open a Standard Response library. You can search by keywords or open folders and view the responses.
If the standard response includes an attached image the attachment is inserted as well, as long as the message allows attached images.
Your system might be set up to enable you to automatically insert a response by typing a pre-defined shortcut keyword.
Attach an Image
You can attach an image to a new unsolicited Tweet, a reply, a Reply to All, or a Retweet with Comments. (You cannot attach an image to a retweet or any type of direct message).
To attach an image, click the Add Picture icon , then use the resulting dialog box to navigate to the desired file. This icon appears below the text box in replies and Retweets with Comments; it appears below the text box in unsolicited Tweets.
The following image formats are supported:
View Case Data
The Case Information (attached data) area provides information about a Twitter interaction. Your system administrator configures which attached data is displayed; examples are Message type, Query name, and User location.
Delete an Outbound Interaction
To delete an outbound interaction, click the Delete button on the toolbar at the top of the interaction window.
Reply to a Twitter Interaction Using Another Media
You can reply using a voice call, email, or SMS. The Workspace can present a drop-down list of available channels to access a contact.
If as an agent, you learn other contact information (not Twitter-specific), such as a contact's phone number or email, you can manually enter this on the Information tab. The corresponding choice for the available media channels will then appear when you click the arrow just above the button used to transfer (near the user name).
If a channel is not configured or the contact information for this channel is absent, No possible action is displayed.
Place Interactions in a Workbin
To place an interaction, inbound or outbound, in a workbin, click the Move To Workbin button .
Consult with Another Agent Using Voice
Click the down arrow on the Start a Consultation button and select the Type of target. Click the magnifying glass to search by name or phone number.
Transfer to an Agent Group, Agent, Interaction Queue, or Skill
Click the Transfer button to select the Type of target. Click the magnifying class to search by name or phone number.
Open a Clickable Shortened URL
Twitter messages are limited to 140 characters. If you enter a URL in a Twitter message, a lot of the available characters for your reply are already taken. To overcome this problem, Twitter in its web interface for creating messages converts very long URLs into short URLs. In a short URL, the "long" URL is being replaced by a shorter URL in the form of an automatically generated combination of letters and digits. Interaction Workspace uses such shortened clickable URLs.
Open a Twitter User Profile Page Using Clickable Mentions
The @ sign is used to call out usernames in Tweets, like this: Hello @JoeBelow! Click a username preceded by the @ sign to link to a Twitter user profile.
Perform a Search in Twitter Using a Clickable #hashtag
Twitter uses the # symbol, called a hashtag, to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. Hashtags help you find Tweets of interest. You can use the hashtag symbol # before relevant keywords in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets to show more easily in Twitter Search. Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets in that category. Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet
Display In-Reply-to Tweet
If the delivered Tweet interaction is a reply to another Tweet, Interaction Workspace allows you to view the original Tweet by clicking the user name located after In Reply to. An opened browser window displays the parent Tweet in Twitter.
Select a Disposition Code
You can select the Dispositions tab and choose a Disposition code for the original routed Twitter interaction. For more information about how to configure and use selected Dispositions, see Workspace Desktop Edition Help.
Select Multiple Interactions of the Same Direction in Workbin
If a workbin contains multiple interactions that are all either inbound or outbound, you can select them all and apply an action; for example, Move to Queue or Mark Done.
Respond to tweets from My History
You can respond to tweets, retweet, and add tweets to favorites from the My History tab, enabling you to act on interactions marked as done.
