  • Enhancements in Email to ticket functionality
    • Email can be sent to multiple departments, depending on the value selected by the user in the transfer form.
      • This configuration will be helpful when we set up a single bot for multiple departments/institutions.
    • Using form values in the email to ticket
      • To facilitate ticketing automation rules, we have done enhancements in the chat client which will allow us to configure the form values in the email to ticket subject line.
      • This will help me to define ticketing system workflows to automate the user identification and ticket routing process.
    • Add a hidden field in the transfer and ticket closure forms
      • This is an optional field and can be added to pass a static value like closed or escalated. This can be used in the subject line to differentiate between closed and escalated tickets.
      • The client can also use it to run a custom workflow when a ticket is created via “Email to ticket” functionality. This will also allow them to review escalated tickets only.
  • Accessibility related changes
    • Added highlighters to minimize & the close buttons within the chat client.
    • Added a color property to change the hyperlink color
