Glossary of terms

ACD Summary report

The ACD Summary includes total chats assigned automatically to agents (offered), the number of chats that ended before the agent could answer it (abandoned), and the number of chats taken away from an agent and given to another because the customer's wait time exceeded your threshold (reassigned), chats that went unanswered and answered. The report also includes useful operational data like average message count, the average duration of chats, and the maximum number of customers waiting in queue and the maximum wait time for any chat. We recommend grouping this report by operator to see if agents are answering or missing chats when they are assigned. For more information, see ACD Summary report.

The process of transferring control from a chatbot to a live agent or other support solution when the chatbot is unable to meet customer needs.

What are the best practices for FAQs?

Follow these guidelines to make the most of Digital DX AI's FAQ capabilites.

Remember the following guidelines when adding and FAQ to your widget:

  • Provide the FAQ in the widget upon opening?
  • Include three to six articles that represent your top use cases
  • When you start using the bot for the first time, specify the articles to be displayed in the FAQ using labels to avoid initial questions skewing your results
  • Review static FAQs every 30 days to see if they should be changed
  • If the FAQ is changed to dynamically present articles from the knowledge base later, make sure to exclude any negative articles from the FAQ like How do I get a refund?


Genesys DX/Bold360 End of Life: January 2024

The Genesys DX (Bold360) platform will end of life on January 31st, 2024. This difficult decision was announced in March, 2023.  

Genesys continues to make a strong commitment to Genesys Cloud, while tightening the portfolio to further accelerate feature growth on the platform. Part of that included bringing over key Genesys DX features to Genesys Cloud CX, such as Knowledge Optimizer that focuses on ease-of-use knowledge management. Digital only licenses for Genesys Cloud were also introduced late last year, which are suitable to those who are not looking for voice capabilities or who need agent seats that only feature support for digital channels. 

Details on the end of life timeline

As of January 31st, 2024, access to Genesys DX product interfaces and customer-deployed components stop to function. Users will no longer be able to log into product interfaces, and all of the boldchat/bold360/nanorep domains will become unavailable for use. If you are curious on what the code on your website related to this might look like and how to remove it, we encourage referencing this post on the DX community

After January 31st, 2024, admins will still be able to get access for an additional 30 days. This period is meant to allow for extracting the necessary data from the platform. Historical data extraction from your account will be available to retrieve by data extraction APIs (Bold360 APIs and Nanorep APIs).
