What's New

Contact list

  • When importing a contact list, you now see a progress bar in the Size column. The progress bar displays the current status of the import process.

Suppression lists

  • It is now possible to manually delete contact information records from a suppression list.

List Builder

  • List Builder now nullifies binary characters during ingestion.

  • The Max Queue Size value and the Minimum and Optimal Buffer size values on the Advanced tab are now transferred to the CME Campaign Object settings successfully. (CLOUDCON-7253)

May 8, 2019 (9.0.000.12)

What's New

Analytics Tab

  • The following enhancements have been made to the Analytics tab in the CX Contact user interface:

    • You can now resize each Analytics tab panel when editing the panel.
    • You can now rename a panel after it is created.

Dialing Profile

  • The Call wait connected timeout option is now a permanent option in the Dailing Profile > Advanced tab. Users can now easily and quickly set a maximum value for the timeout by seconds option.

Selection Rules

  • The following changes and enhancements have been made to Selection Rules:
    • When you create or edit a Selection rule with Field set to Device1 - Device10, two new operators are available:
      is valid
      is not valid
      These operators provide device validation during ingestion against the Genesys Integrated Global Numbering plan.
    • The not in operator is now available where Field is set to Device1 - Device10 and Type is set to any of the following:
      Area Code
      Exchange
      Timezone
      State Code
      Country Code
    • CX Contact now supports decimal values for the Type->Numeric filtering criteria. Previously, CX Contact supported full integers only.

Custom Time Zone map

  • Custom Time Zone is now stored as a script object within the configuration server. As a result, you can now control permissions and access to the Custom Time Zone objects.

Suppression List Record Retention

  • When configuring a suppression list it is now possible to specify the duration of the record retention. This means that records added to the suppression list will be retained within that suppression list for the period of time they are configured and automatically purged at the end of that duration.

Resolved Issues

  • When using a fixed position within a data mapping scheme, an error that restricted users from overlapping fields no longer occurs. Additionally, the overlapping fields are now highlighted yellow. (CLOUDCON-6832)

    • The type is set to Device.
    • The suppression list is set to Required.
    • The suppression list Never expires.
    • The suppression list cannot be deleted.

What's New

Resolved Issues

January 15, 2019 (9.0.000.09)

What's New

Historical reporting

  • CX contact now supports historical reporting of unattempted (suppressed) records through Elasticsearch and Genesys Info Mart. Once CX Contact writes the data to an Elasticsearch index, Genesys Info Mart extracts the data and transforms it into Genesys Info Mart LDR_* tables.

Treatments

  • CX Contact now supports call treatments based on disposition codes. In the event a treatment is defined for both a call result and a disposition code, CX Contact gives priority to the disposition code when applying the call treatment.
  • For call treatments (Retry Options), the Apply to Record menu now includes a Suppress option that allows you to suppress a record (by client ID or by phone number) that meets the treatment criteria. When you select this option, you must specify a suppression list for the suppressed record from the new Suppression List menu, which contains all suppression lists set to Never expire.
    Refer to the Delivery and Retry Options page in the CX Contact Help manual for more information.

Filtering Rule

  • On the General tab of a dialing profile, campaign template, and campaign group, a new Filtering Rule menu replaces the following menus:
    • Labels
    • Contact Order
    • Ascending/Descending
    A filtering rule encompasses all of these options.

Campaigns dashboard

  • The List Size field has been renamed List Size/Devices, and the Filtered field has been renamed Contacts Filtered/Devices Filtered. The previous release (9.0.000.08) introduced the new Devices and Devices Filtered statistics but excluded updates to the field names.

Resolved Issues

Campaigns dashboard

  • If you expand a campaign template to reveal its campaign groups and contact lists, and then you navigate away from the page, CX Contact now retains the expanded layout. Previously, in this scenario, all campaign objects collapsed when you navigated away from the page. (CLOUDCON-5949)
  • Cells now scale automatically to fit the contents of the cell. Previously, values exceeding 10,000 in the List Size/Devices and Contacts Filtered/Devices Filtered fields spilled outside of the cell. (CLOUDCON-5916)
  • Abandoned statistics now display as expected. Previously, the Abandoned % column displayed 0 values. (CLOUDCON-5863)

December 6, 2018 (9.0.000.08)

What's New

List Rules

  • A new Filtering rule allows you to sort and order contact data within a contact list. This rule can be applied and updated while a campaign group is running. The Filtering rule replaces the Contact Order option on the General tab of a dialing profile, campaign template, and campaign group.
  • There are now two types of Upload rules:
    • Contacts - The selection rule applies to a contact list.
    • Suppression - The selection rule applies to a suppression list.
  • There are now three types of Selection rules:
    • Contacts - The selection rule applies to a contact list.
    • Suppression - The selection rule applies to a suppression list.
    • Advanced - The selection rule applies to a contact list export and filtering rules. When defining the filtering criteria for this type of rule, you can now define an SQL WHERE clause in place of the standard visual editor.
  • You can now duplicate a condition set being applied to a selection rule.

Related documentation: Compliance Tools

Context-sensitive help

  • The user interface now contains a context-sensitive help tool that enables you to view help content relative to the page you're viewing in the user interface. To access the tool, click the question mark icon in the top right-hand corner of the user interface.

UI improvement

November 2, 2018 (9.0.000.07)

What's New

Data mapping

  • The new data mapping feature is an alternative to using an input specification file to map contact data to fields in a CX Contact contact list.

For detailed instructions, visit the Create a Data Mapping Schema page in the CX Contact Help manual.

Increment retry option

  • For call treatments, the Increment retry option is no longer a mandatory option. Previously, if you selected Retry in from the Apply to Record menu, you had to define an increment value.

Campaigns dashboard

  • The media control icons have increased in size and now use the following color scheme:
    • Play - Green
    • Pause - Blue
    • Stop - Red
  • A new status bulb displays next to the media controls to indicate the status of a campaign group. It uses the following color scheme:
    • A green status bulb indicates that the campaign group is running
    • A blue status bulb indicates that the campaign group is paused
    • A grey status bulb indicates that the campaign group is inactive

Campaign group

  • An icon now displays next to the name of a campaign group to indicate the type of dialing mode the campaign group uses.
