Lesson: Receiving a transferred SMS

Purpose: To receive a transferred SMS interaction from another agent.

Prerequisites

Start

  1. If another agent wants to transfer an SMS interaction to you, you are notified of the consultation request by the Workspace Interaction Preview interactive notification (see the Interaction Preview interactive notification, informing you of a transfer request figure).

    Tip
    If you are using a screen reader, your system might be configured to give the focus to the Interaction Preview window. In this scenario, your screen reader will automatically read the contents of the window to you. However, if your system is not configured to give the focus to the Interaction Preview window, to have your screen reader read the contents of the Interaction Preview window, you must use screen navigation to give the focus to the Interaction Preview.
