Amazon Lex v2 support
Brands can create third-party bots connected to Amazon's LexV2 vendor. LexV2 offers an opener developer experience and enables a single bot to use multiple languages by using a locale Id for identification.
Support for ManualETTR
It is possible to set a Time to Resolution (TTR) setting on a conversation, to set an expectation for a human agent in what timeframe they need to answer a conversation. In addition to the three predefined types of TTR changes in Third-Party Bots ('Urgent', 'Prioritized', and 'Normal'), there is now 'Manual' as an additional TTR Type, to provide a more customizable experience. The manual type needs to be sent within a number value and a unit (SECONDS; MINUTES; HOURS). With this, the TTR can be set to a specific time in the future and not only to predefined values.
Chat message combiner fix
Bots can now send the correct customer response to the vendor and not unnecessarily combine. Previously, when a chat bot is configured with message combine enabled, it received an ‘undefined’ prefix on every message that the customer response was triggered by an action button, preventing the vendor from using the correct utterance on such interactions. (This occurred because on triggered action buttons two events, one with the message and one with the action status event, were received.)
Correct intent displayed for knowledge base responses under Bot Escalation Summary
Watson Bot with Discovery Search enabled can now find a correct matching knowledge base article and the static value ‘knowledge base’ is defined. Previously, the bot escalation summary showed a wrong intent in the Bot Escalation Summary.
