What's New

This release contains the following new features and enhancements:

Workspace Web Edition

  • Interaction history enhancements
    • Display of custom interaction attribute(s) in the Interaction History. Previously, only standard interaction attributes, such as status, subject, start date, and end date could be displayed in the Interaction History table. It is now possible for system administrators to configure additional custom interaction attributes to be displayed. This capability allows agents to have more detailed information prior to selecting an interaction on which to focus, leading to improved efficiency.
    • A note is automatically created in the Interaction History when a voice call is transferred to, or conferenced with, another agent.
  • Web Chat enhancement
    • Push web page URL to a contact. This feature allows agents to select and open a publicly accessible company web page on the customer's browser. This capability allows agents to transition a customer from assisted- to self-service during a chat interaction.
  • Case information enhancement
    • Administrators can configure case information fields so that they are required to be filled in by the agent when the agent marks the interaction as done. This capability allows your business to capture critical business data for further analysis.
  • Outbound Campaign enhancement
    • Support for Predictive and Progressive ASM (Active Switching Matrix) mode. ASM enhances the capability of Outbound Campaign Predictive and Progressive modes by reserving the agent before the call is connected. This mode allows the agent to be connected with the customer as soon as the customer answers the call.
  • Knowledge Center enhancements
    • Agents are now informed if certain knowledge articles are new or recently modified.
    • Corrected search result. Agents might incorrectly spell certain word(s) when searching for knowledge articles. When this happens, the application returns results based upon the corrected spelling of those words.
  • Miscellaneous enhancements
    • User feedback. Agents now have the capability to provide feedback when they encounter a problem with the application. The application automatically submits the browser log for further processing.
    • Automated feedback. Occasionally the application might experience disconnection from the backend servers. If this occurs, a browser log is automatically collected. Agents are asked if they want to submit the collected information when application re-establishes connection.
    • Application rebranding support. You can now configure the application to display a custom company logo instead of the default Genesys branding.

Web Services API

  • Web Services API Server now supports Java 8.
  • Muting and unmuting a participant in a conference is now supported in the Web Services API.
  • Shared Workbin support has been added to the eServices API. Agent groups and place groups can subscribe, unsubscribe, add, and remove content for shared workbins.
  • Replys from email history is now supported in eServices API.

CRM Gplus Adapters

Gplus Adapter for Salesforce

  • The Adapter can now be configured to associate voice interactions with Genesys Universal Contact Server (UCS) contacts and create entries in the contact history with disposition and notes.
  • Users can now create a new Genesys UCS contact in the Adapter.
  • In Salesforce console mode, the Adapter can be popped out to open in a separate browser window.
  • In Salesforce console mode, when the Adapter window is minimized and there is a Genesys server disconnect, the Adapter attempts to reconnect within 90 seconds. If the connection is not restored, the window is maximized and a message is displayed to ask users to refresh their browser windows.
  • The Adapter now shows agent name instead of extension in the call detail view.
  • For chat interactions, the Salesforce object type can be saved in Genesys attached data when chat is marked as done.
  • Workspace Web Edition deployed as an embedded Agent Desktop in Salesforce Console:
    • In Workspace Web Edition mode, when the Adapter window is minimized and there is a Genesys server disconnect, the Adapter attempts to reconnect within 90 seconds. If the connection is not restored, the window is maximized and a message is displayed to ask users to refresh their browser windows.

Resolved Issues
