Installing the Workspace Desktop Edition Plugin

Installing the Plugin for Workspace Desktop Edition

Agents can use the Knowledge Center Plugin for Workspace Desktop Edition (WDE) to access knowledge-related information right from their desktop. For example, if a customer asks a question using a chat widget and the corresponding interaction is routed to an agent, Knowledge Center can execute a pre-populated search based on data attached to the new interaction, as well as displaying the customer's search history and providing the agent with full access to the knowledge base access. And if the customer has not authorized during their search, the agent can link their session history to that customer's ID to access their full history while working with the interaction. To use this plugin complete the procedures below, in order.
