Contacts and interactions
A contact is a person that your company does business with. Your company has information about that person that you can manage and use to do your job. An interaction is a communication with the contact over one or more channels, such as Voice or Digital, such as Chat or Email, and the tools that help you address the contact's needs and the needs of your company. Workspace Agent Desktop provides tools that you can use to manage previous interactions with a contact (the contact's interaction history, your History, and your company's interaction database).
How do I search through previous interactions with customers?
You can view customer interactions in the Contact Directory and in the History tab of an active interaction.
You can view customer interactions in three ways:
- My History lets you browse your interactions.
- The Contact Directory lets you browse all interactions with a customer or team member.
- Interaction Search lets you browse the complete interaction database using either a Quick Search or an Advanced Search.
