Summary

Related Feature/ Screen

To start using the gadget, the agents and supervisors must have the respective user permissions assigned explicitly by the administrator via UMM to add/ update customers, send SMS messages, and view customer interaction history.

Admin Interface

After logging in on the admin interface, do not press F5 or Ctrl+F5, 404 error will appear. It will require to access the app again.

Admin Interface

Only Lists and titles are translated in the language selected on the UI. No data elements are translated. 

Multi-lingual UI

In the case of a direct transfer call, the call type appears as Inbound in the case of UCCX/E 11.6.Interaction History gadget
CIM does not Support SSO for Finesse. That is, SSO-enabled agents log in to the agent gadget is not supported in CIM. Finesse Login

Both supervisors and agents synced from CCE can log on to the Finesse gadget with non-SSO enabled user accounts.

Finesse Login

Agents are logged into the agent gadget as soon as they are logged in to Finesse. They cannot log out manually from the agent gadget but logged out automatically, once logged out of Finesse. Finesse Login

If no customer record is found against the ANI, the application will automatically open a pop-up that has the option to search a customer from existing customers or create a new customer.

Interaction History gadget

If a call arrives from a customer who exists in the CIM DB, the interaction is created/ linked automatically with the matched customer record. However, if the agent wants to link the interaction with a different customer, it can search from the customer list manually and link the interaction with the desired customer record. Interaction History gadget
In the case of a multi-legged call (conference/transfer), if multiple agents try to link the same interaction with multiple customers, the interaction is linked to the customer which the last agent in the call has linked to. Interaction History gadget
CIM does not support context transfer. That means, if a call is linked manually by the agent with a different customer, this is linking is not forwarded while transferring the call and the system still pops out the best-matched customer record to the second agent. Interaction History gadget

If during a single call an agent applies multiple wrap-ups, then the most recently applied wrap-up will be recorded at the end of the call.

Interaction History gadget

In case of a conference or a transfer call, if the first agent applies the wrap-up and the second agent simply ends the call without applying any wrap-up, the interaction will record the wrap-up provided by the first agent.

Interaction History gadget

The performance of the system might get compromised if more than 50 custom attributes are added.

CIM Customer

A maximum of 100,000 customer records can be uploaded once in a single file.

CIM Customer

Importing a CSV file of 100k customer records, each carrying 50 custom attributes takes 3 to  4 mins to upload. 

CIM Customer

It is advised that the bulk import operation is performed in off-peak hours.CIM Customer 

If during the bulk-import operation, a customer with the same phone number already exists, the record is updated and overwritten.

CIM Customer

On the interactions page, the search is available based on the First Name, Last Name, or phone no of the customer.

CIM Customer

For now, the application is tested with 500,000 customer records

CIM Customer 

CIM supports partial search in its all column-wise search filters

CIM gadget

Two customers with the same ANI/phone cannot exist.

CIM gadget

Duplicate numbers are allowed for phone 01, 02, 03, 04, and 05 fields for the same customer. For instance, a customer ‘XYZ’ can have up to five phones, and one or more phones having the same number.  However, one phone number is unique to one individual customer and cannot be duplicated among multiple customers.

CIM gadget 

If a new customer record with a different name but with the same existing phone number is created, the existing customer profile will be overwritten/replaced with the new customer profile.

CIM gadget 

Adding ‘+’ at the start of the number is permissible. However, contact with ‘+’ in the start and another without ‘+’ (but the same number) will be considered as two different contact numbers.

CIM gadget

The click-to-dial button works only when the application is opened within Finesse as a gadget. While running as a web application in the browser, the click-to-dial function will not work.

CIM gadget

Send SMS button is not yet supported CIM gadget

At the moment, the application does not store any barge in, consult, and silent monitoring call logs or activities as part of the customer interaction. However, it stores call conference, call transfer activities as part of the interaction.

While creating a label, the default color is grey Labels
Labels can be assigned or created dynamically while uploading the customer CSVLabels
In the case of creating dynamic labels from the CSV file, the user would not be able to choose a color for the label. Instead,  the application will itself assign a default color to the label. Once the file is uploaded, the user can change the default color of the newly-created labels by navigating to the Labels list.Labels
Search can be done on the base of labels as wellLabels

For assigning multiple labels via CSV, the user has to provide it in the format, a;b;c

Outbound SMS interactions can now be seen from the interactions pageInteraction History
In the new UMM, up to 2000 users are supportedUser Management
If during an active call, the agent closes his browser, the interaction will not be recorded unless the agent manually logs in on finesse and select the customer manually before the call ends on finesse. Unexpected Scenario
