Using the WeChat Plugin for Workspace Desktop Edition

This section describes using Interaction Workspace Desktop Edition to receive and handle interactions coming from the WeChat channel of Genesys Messaging Apps.

Receiving and Handling an Inbound WeChat Interaction

If you are the selected internal target of an inbound WeChat interaction, you receive a notice on your workstation desktop. You can decide to accept or reject the interaction. If you accept it, the WeChat Interaction window is displayed. The WeChat Interaction window contains information about the interaction and the controls that you need to complete the interaction.

Lesson: Handling an inbound WeChat interaction

Purpose: To handle an inbound WeChat interaction properly.



  1. A preview of the inbound interaction is displayed on your workstation desktop in an interactive-notification view (see Figure—WeChat Interaction Notification).
    WeChat Interaction Notification

    The Interaction Preview contains a summary of information that pertains to the interaction, including contact information and type of interaction. The Interaction Preview might also contain Case Information, which is part of the case data about the interaction.

  2. You can choose to accept or reject the interaction in the Interaction Preview by performing one of the following steps:
    • Click Accept to display the interaction.
    • Click Reject to return the interaction to the queue.
    • Do nothing. The interaction will time out and be redirected.
  3. If you accept the interaction, the inbound WeChat Interaction window is displayed, as shown in the Figure—WeChat Interaction Window (click to enlarge).

The WeChat service responds with an error message in the following situations:
  • The "Official account" (agent) sends the WeChat client too many messages (the limit is about 20) while the WeChat client is inactive.
  • The "Official account" (agent) sends the WeChat client multiple messages within a very short time interval.
  • The "Official account" (agent) sends the WeChat client text messages with more than 3000 characters.

Next Steps

  • You may wish to use some of the the features in described in WeChat Functionality and Workspace Functionality below. When you are finished, click Done to stop the current interaction.The information is saved in the contact history and the WeChat Interaction window is closed. You can also set a disposition code.

WeChat Functionality


Click the paperclip icon (6 in the figure WeChat Interaction Window) to attach a file. You can also receive attachments.

  • Click the corresponding icon in the transcript area to display or play the attachment.
  • Right-click the icon and select Save as... to save the attachment.
The size and type of file that you can attach or receive may be limited by your configuration.


WeChat provides a basic set of emojis (technically these are stickers). Click the smiley-face icon (5 in the figure WeChat Interaction Window) to get a selection window. When you select an emoji, it appears in the message area as a bracketed expression (for example, [grimace]), but once you click Send (or type Enter), the emoji appears in the transcript area in its full form. The bracketed expression also appears when you mouse-over the emoji.

The language of the bracketed expression is determined by the setting of the wechatsession.emoji-selector-mode option.

You can then reply by using a voice call, an email, an SMS message, or any other supported media channel for a WeChat contact.
