Agent Workspace


[Enhanced Agent Workspace] Consumer Message Channel Indicator 

Agents are now able to pinpoint the messaging channel the consumer is currently using with a new indicator next to each consumer message that indicates the channel the message was sent from.


  • The channel indicator will not be available for conversations viewed from the All Conversations page, but only for conversations viewed from the My Conversations page.
    • Hence, the channel indicator will be displayed for assigned agents and joined agents/Managers only.
  • The supported channels are only:
    • Mobile (Mobile SDK) - Appears as “APP”
    • Web (Standard window, not window API) - Appears as “Web”
    • Mobile Web - Appears as “Web”


[Enhanced Agent Workspace] Smart Replies - Add or Replace actions menu

Smart Replies capability provides agents the option to receive a list of suggested replies back to consumers during a messaging conversation, based on the conversation content.

Agents using Smart Replies can now choose whether to add the suggested reply to the existing text in the agent's input or to replace the existing text entirely.


[Enhanced Agent Workspace] Send message with Ctrl + Enter

Brands can now allow their agents to send messages in the Agent Workspace using the Ctrl + Enter keys.

[Enhanced Agent Workspace] Widget Load Time & Timeout optimization 

Timeouts for custom widgets may now be set with a minimum of 16 seconds (as they are today) and a maximum of two minutes.

[Social Messaging] Improved direct messages – Instagram

Direct messaging on Instagram was already supported and it’s now improved with message metadata for both, customer and agent messages, in the transcript area of the Agent Workspace.


[Social Messaging] Show Account ID when toggled to Direct Message

The first account that received a DM from the customer becomes the only account the agent can DM reply from in that conversation. The relevant account ID is now shown as selected (and disabled) when the agent toggles to DM, as it acts as a reference of which account they are using to reply from. 



[Social Messaging]  Fix - Facebook widget when a new comment is received

When a new comment on a Facebook post is received in the conversation, the post preview no longer disappears in the widget with an error message, but rather the relevant post along with the comment is fully shown in the widget.

[Enhanced Agent Workspace] The following A11Y fixes were added:

    • The text content under the different sections of the Consumer Info widget was classified as a heading. This issue was fixed, and the sections are now classified as headings and the text beneath is classified as plain text.
    • All closed conversations (both in My Conversations and All Conversations) were dimmed. The opacity was enhanced and the conversation window area is now fully accessible.
