New languages available (Release on May 19th, 2022)

 

Product update

  

Message Center:

  • The live translation tool now supports Turkish and Indonesian.

Macro and video call improvements (Release on April 29th, 2022)

 

Product update

  

Dashboard:

  • Chat macros, i.e. canned responses, are equipped with additional functions. For example, chat macros can now be integrated into the already written text. In addition, macros can be linked to widgets, which is helpful if you have a lot of macros. You can define that certain macros should only be available when conversations come in via a specific widget. By default, macros will be available for all widgets (as before). However, if you want to differentiate in the future, go to Chat Tools > Macro Groups and select widgets for a specific macro group.
  • Operators can still see but no longer edit their own profile if their role doesn't include editing rights for operators.

Message Center:

  • If you hover over a message, you will see the exact time including seconds. This makes it easier to evaluate the chat quality, as e.g. the exact first response time can be viewed.

  • It becomes clearer whether operator or contact wrote the last message by displaying messages from contacts by a small arrow icon.

  • It is now possible to blur the background during video calls, and calls can be transferred to a mobile device. This means that an audio or video call is started on the desktop. If it is then necessary to change places in order to show the contact partner a certain product, for example, you can scan a QR code using your mobile phone and start the call on that mobile device.

  • Long chatbot bubble options are fully displayed with line breaks.

Messenger:

  • If no operator is online, the welcome bubble will display the offline team name and the default widget picture instead.

  • If different widgets are used on the same domain, the website visitor will now see the widget integrated on the respective subpage, even if they have already opened the Messenger before.

 

Fix

  
  • Email notifications are only sent out if the conversation contains an exchange between (bot) operator and contact.
  • Human operators are no longer preferred over bot operators when displaying pictures in the welcome bubble.
  • Rating can be submitted without free feedback if the rating form was triggered via the command $rating.
  • WhatsApp conversations display the locale (country flag) based on the mobile number.
  • Filtering for multiple operators at once under "All Conversations" does no longer reload the Message Center.
  • Contacts can request transcripts again if the operator sent at least one message in the conversation.

A better messaging experience and workflow improvements (Release on March 18th, 2022)

 

Product update

  

Message Center:

  • New live conversations open immediately in the operator's inbox to save additional clicks and thus increase response times.
  • When blocked contacts resume a conversation, the Inactivity Prevention will not trigger anymore.
  • After a conversation was set as ended, no automated messages on reassigning will be sent anymore.
  • The resolution of the operator picture in audio calls has been improved.
  • Colors and operator avatars will be reverted and look the same as before the release on March 4th.
  • When in an audio or video call, contacts see the Messenger directly in the tab of the active call so they don't have to switch tabs when they want to send a message.
 

Fix

  

Message Center:

  • Custom Data set via the API will be displayed in all conversations again.

Widget:

  • Widgets connected to an empty operator group are hidden again (given that the setting is active in the Widget Editor).

Chatbots:

  • When contacts resume conversations via channels, these conversations will be assigned to the bot again (given that the setting is active in the Widget Editor).
  • Chatbot operators are considered again when displaying the welcome bubble.

Addons:

  • User info/custom data is always included in EmailTickets.
  • The background job which resends addons in case the original attempt failed has been optimized to avoid duplicate tickets.

API:

  • The JSON API endpoint returns the correct number of operator slots.

Performance improvements (Release on March 4th, 2022)

 

Product update

  

Analytics:

  • When a conversation was started while no operator was available, it counted as "unassigned" in Analytics. Now Userlike checks the assignment when the conversation is set as ended.

Messenger:

  • Inactivity Prevention is now also triggered for email replies.
  • Links are clickable if they contain commas, hyphens or brackets.

Operator overview and new conversation flow (Release on October 22nd, 2021)

 

Product update

  

Messenger:

  • After a conversation ends, contacts are now asked if they want to continue the same conversation or start a new one. If "Continue conversation" is selected, earlier messages are loaded dynamically so that the main focus is on the current conversation session.

Message Center:

  • An operator overview is now available. Operators can therefore see which colleagues are online, away or offline.

  • Selected chat topics are now always displayed at the top and can be cleared with just one click in case the topics are no longer needed.

  • Notes get a pin icon to make it clear how to save them.

  • Live translation can now be enabled for completed and unassigned conversations.

Dashboard:

  • While voice messages could either be enabled or disabled for both operators and contacts, there are now separate options so that you can allow only one party to send/receive voice messages.
 

Fix

  

Messenger:

  • Online operator is displayed in header instead of offline team name.

Message Center:

  • Navigation events are clickable again.

Product update

 

 

New features:

Video chat and screensharing are here! In addition to audio calls, you can now add video and share screens with contacts.

  • Inbox: Navigation events are not shown anymore if the widget is in privacy mode.

  • Inbox: Texts will temporarily not turn into emoji. A text-to-emoji replacement will return in a future release.

  • All Conversations: Bot conversations with no human interaction no longer appear. Conversations in which the contact actively engaged with the bot by selecting options or clicking buttons are still displayed.

Analytics:

Analytics labels have been made clearer.

Widget Editor:

Inactivity Prevention: Shorter timeouts are available for unanswered offline conversations so that conversations can already be forwarded after one minute.
