In environments using custom desktop applications instead of Genesys Workspace Web Edition (WWE) or Workspace Desktop Edition, the WWE Service Client API now presents only one interaction instead of two in the following two-step transfer scenario:

  1. Agent 1 makes an outgoing call to a contact.
  2. Agent 1 consults with agent 2 on this call.

Previously, agent 2 saw one interaction for the consultation and another interaction for the main transferred call. (HTCC-29477)
