==August 8, 2018 (15.5.0)==7

What's New

This release contains no new features.

Resolved Issues

  • On the List Automation page, the option Delete files after import has been changed to Delete files after processing. (DVPU-6205)
  • On the List Automation page, the Delete files after import option (now labelled Delete files after processing) now functions as expected. Previously, when this option was enabled, empty files sometimes remained on the remote FTP site. (DVP-89383)
  • If a List Automation job has been disabled or deleted, the system will stop attempting to execute the job, as expected. Previously, the system would sometimes continue to execute a job that was disabled or deleted. (DVP-89397)
  • The Find Done page now displays all completed sub-campaigns, as expected. Previously, an error prevented some sub-campaigns from displaying on the Find Done page. (DVP-89296)
  • The Trigger Rules feature now functions as expected. Previously, the system would sometimes attempt to load a sub-campaign without first ensuring a contact list was successfully uploaded into Engage. (DVP-89360)


June 1, 2018 (15.6.0)

What's New

  • Several compliance enhancements have been made to better enable customers to comply with Right to Access (“export”) or Right of Erasure ("forget") requests from their customers. For more information about PureEngage Cloud support for GDPR compliance, see PureEngage Cloud Support for GDPR. For general information about GDPR, see General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). (DVP-89201) (DVP-89222)

Resolved Issues

  • The Campaigns dashboard now displays accurate statistics for sub-campaign passes. Previously, in some cases, the dashboard displayed zero (0) counts for all sub-campaign passes even though the database and sub-campaign reports displayed actual counts. (DVP-89249)

May 7, 2018 (15.5.0)

What's New

This release contains no new features.

Resolved Issues

  • Changes made to a List Automation schedule in the user interface now take effect immediately. Previously, in some cases, the system would continue to run any queued jobs based on the previous schedule before it would honor the new schedule. (DVP-89289)

April 5, 2018 (15.4.0)

What's New

This release contains no new features.

Resolved Issues

  • When editing List Automation schedules, you can now successfully switch between the date picker (calendar) functionality and the Crontab functionality. Previously, if you set a schedule using the calendar and then tried to edit the schedule using a cron string instead, the edits would not save and the system would not throw an error message. (DVP-89051)
  • List Automation schedules have been enhanced to facilitate traversing the GMT timezone boundary. Previously, List Automation schedules could not cross a GMT boundary - the only workaround was to create multiple List Automation schedules. (DVP-88505)
  • For List Automation, wildcards are no longer supported in the Minute field of a cron string, and job runs are limited to a maximum of 12 runs per hour. Previously, a wildcard in the Minute field meant that a job run would take place every minute. (DVP-89052)
  • On the List Automation page, the Delete files after import option now functions as expected when the SFTP protocol is used. Previously, this option worked for the FTP protocol only. (DVP-89188)
  • The List Size column on the Campaigns dashboard now displays accurate figures for On-demand sub-campaigns. Previously, for some On-demand sub-campaigns, the figure in this column was twice the size of the actual number of contacts associated with that sub-campaign. (DVP-88850)

March 12, 2018 (15.3.0)

What's New

This release contains no new features.

Resolved Issues

  • Contact Trace records are now sorted so that the newest records display first. Previously, if a Contact Trace returned a large number of records, the oldest records displayed first. (DVP-89048)
  • Email verification for a password reset now functions as expected. Previously, verification failed for email aliases containing the character string mac. (DVP-89032)
  • If an update to a List Automation job traverses the GMT date boundary, a context-specific error message displays at the top right-hand corner of the List Automation page. Previously, a generic system error message appeared. (DVPU-6183)

September 21, 2017 (14.13.0)

What's New

List Automation

  • The new List Automation feature can now be used to scan FTP sites for lists matching a specified rule criteria. When a list matching the criteria is found, one of the following occurs:
    • The list is loaded into Engage as a contact list.
    • The list is loaded into Engage, which then initiates a sub-campaign.
    • Contacts within the list are appended to a suppression list.

User Interface

  • Customers creating a self-serve SMS campaign can now use the Test button to test an SMS script.
  • On the List Rules page, all details about a rule now appear on the right-hand side of the screen when that rule is selected.

Resolved Issues

  • In some cases, self-serve SMS script templates and instances appeared on the On-demand Strategies page. This has been resolved.
  • The Save and Cancel buttons on an SMS Edit page now function as expected. Previously, if an error occurred, the Save button would re-run the incorrect information, and the Cancel button would close the page and erase all information.

August 15, 2017 (14.12.0)

What's New

  • The new Self-serve SMS feature enables you to create and modify SMS scripts for the following types of interactions:
    • Alert
    • Surveys (three questions)
    • Opt-in (via inbound keywords)
    • Interactive

Starting in a later release, the script templates will be auto-deployed to accounts. For now, your account representative can manually load them onto your account.

July 27, 2017 (14.11.0)

What's New

Resolved Issues

  • The trigger rule process now runs as expected in cases where multiple lists are created around the same time on accounts with multiple trigger rules (40+). Previously, in this scenario, some lists were excluded from evaluation during the trigger rule process.

June 26, 2017 (14.10.0)

What's New

Resolved Issues

  • In some cases, new strategies created within a campaign were not be saved as templates. This has been resolved.
  • The Account Manager User Interface now displays the new Genesys logo.

June 2, 2017 (14.9.0)

What's New

Resolved Issues

  • Clicking on the name of an account in Enterprise Manager previously opened an old version of the Account Settings page in Account Manager. This has been corrected.

May 16, 2017 (14.8.0)

What's New

Sub-campaigns

  • You can now create inbound sub-campaigns using text and web channels, as follows:
    • Text - used when you want customers to use short codes to interact with an SMS script. All interactions are handled by the SMS script and results are stored in Engage reports.
    • Web - used when you want to provide a clickable link in the text message, which then takes customers to a personalized web page. The SMS script is used to create the NanoClick URL, and an inbound script contains the web content. Results are stored in Engage reports.

Account Settings

  • The Text Settings page has been removed, and is now a tab, labelled Text Settings, on the Account Settings page. All content remains the same.

Resolved Issues

Reports

  • In some cases, the system generated empty reports. This has been corrected.

User Interface

  • In some cases, the company logo on the Account Manager User Interface appeared truncated. This has been corrected.

April 25, 2017 (14.7.0)

What's New

Reports

  • Accounts with text and email channels enabled now have access to account, campaign, and sub-campaign reports under the Reports tab.

API

  • The following new API endpoints have been added to the REST web services interface: showScript, changeCampaign, evaluateComplianceRules, and showContactBatchState.

Resolved Issues

  • All campaign statistics now appear on the Campaigns page. Previously, some statistics mistakenly appeared as 0.

April 1, 2017 (14.6.0)

What's New

Resolved Issues

  • Contact Trace results that include recordings now display the correct campaign and sub-campaign name. Previously, the results sometimes displayed the wrong campaign and sub-campaign name.
  • The safe window (allowed calling hours) for manual/on-demand calls to non-geographic time zone phone numbers (for example toll-free numbers) is now set to 12:00pm to 9:00pm EST, if the pass is set to 9:00am to 9:00pm local time. Previously, the safe window hours was mistakenly based on GMT instead of EST.
  • The sub-campaign end time on the Find Done page has been corrected to show the actual end time of the sub-campaign in the time zone setting of the pass.
  • If an admin user resets another user's password, the User may upload scripts and specification files option is no longer affected. Previously, this option would automatically reset once a user's password was reset.
  • If a contact file or a report has a field beginning with an equals sign ("="), that field will be preceded by a single quotation mark when the file or report is exported. This will prevent that field from being interpreted as a formula when the file is loaded into Excel.
    For example, a field containing:
    =HYPERLINK("http://www.genesys.com", "click here") ) will be exported as
    '=HYPERLINK("http://www.genesys.com", "click here") )

March 1, 2017 (14.5.2.0)

What's New

SMS and Email channels

Outbound SMS and Email channels are now available.

Outbound Text and Email channels can be blended with existing Voice (Outbound IVR), Dialer, and Preview channels to create a multi-channel, or blended, campaign. Blended interactions enable you to leverage more than one channel to complete a single customer interaction. For example, you could schedule a service call by phone and then send an SMS reminder the day before the appointment.

Notes:

  • SMS can be one-way or two-way interactive. With two-way, interactions take place between the script, via a dialogue engine, and the customer; agents are never involved.
  • Email is one-way outbound only. While custom REPLY TO addresses for direct responses are supported, auto-response (dialogue engine) functionality is not supported. Inbound email is supported through eServices.
  • Text and Email scripts are created in Engage. Voice scripts are still created in Designer.
  • Up to 10 devices are supported.
  • Existing customers must sign a contract addendum to add Outbound SMS and/or Email services.

Known Issues

There are currently no known issues.
