Predefined content overview

Save time and energy by using predefined content
  • Messaging
  • Chat

At any given time in your shift as an agent, you are expected to handle multiple conversations in a competent and efficient manner. By using the predefined content in your conversations, you can relieve some of the pressure on yourself, achieve your goals, and maintain your high standards. The use of predefined content saves time and can ensure consistent, error-free responses and a professional tone of voice.

You can access the predefined phrases while you are chatting and, rather than retyping repeatedly, you can select the relevant, ready-made response. The predefined responses are organized into categories, such as Greeting, Conversational, Closing, and additional categories that your managers create based on your business needs. Managers can also assign Hotkeys (shortcuts) to the most useful predefined responses and you can save time and energy by using them.

In case the conversation is being conducted by an agent with the conversation assigned skill, predefined content will be filtered based on this skill.

When the agent assigned to the conversation has different skills than the conversation skill, predefined content will be filtered by the agent's skills.

However, there are two scenarios when all predefined content will be returned, without filtering:

  • The agent and the engagement do not have an assigned skill
  • Viewing or joining a conversation (when the user is not the assigned agent) by either Agent or Agent Manager.

While you are chatting, you can quickly navigate through the categories and select the relevant response. Here are some examples of categorized predefined responses:

  • Closing: Thank you for visiting. Please contact us any time.
  • Conversational: Thank you for waiting.
  • Greeting: Hello, How may I assist you?

You can expose predefined content to your agents in a Predefined Content widget. Or, if you’re using LivePerson’s Conversation Assist to recommend bots and answers to your agents inline in conversations, you can turn on its On-Demand Recommendations widget. The On-Demand Recommendations widget makes available predefined content on its Replies tab.
