What are canned messages in Digital DX?

In Digital DX, canned messages are predefined strings of text that an agent can insert into a conversation. With canned messages, the agent can reuse commonly used responses without having to enter them.

You can create canned messages in the Web Admin Center.

After setting up canned messages, they will be immediately available for agents in the Agent Workspace. They can search for messages on the Canned Messages panel and can select a message to insert it in the chat panel.

Note: Inserted messages are not immediately sent, only copied to the chat panel.

What's the difference between canned messages and the Smart Advisor?

Agents can use both Smart Advisor articles and canned messages in the Agent Workspace. While canned messages are defined in the Web Admin Center, the Smart Advisor panel displays articles taken from a selected Digital DX AI knowledge base. This knowledge base is selected when Digital DX Agent and AI are integrated.

The main difference between the two sets of messages is that Smart Advisor offers results in real-time, based on the customer's questions; whereas an agent has to search manually from available canned messages while chatting with a customer. In addition, an agent can suggest an answer as a knowledge base article and this way help improve the knowledge base. See What is Smart Advisor? to learn more.

What are best practices for using Canned Messages?

  • We recommend setting up Canned Messages so that agents can provide quick, canned responses. This allows agents to be more efficient by handling multiple chats at once with the power to send pre-built messages.
  • Build folders of Canned Messages to be used by different teams
  • Limit who has access to which Canned Message folders via permission groups
  • Set up shortcuts and encourage agents to leverage shortcuts
  • Include hyperlinks, images, and videos
  • Correlate specific Canned Message folders with a particular chat window
  • Leverage variables such as ${login.Name} or ${chat.ChatName}
  • Canned Messages will save your agents time, and result in reduced response times and better customer experiences. Decreased ART and ASA increase efficiency and therefore reduce cost and increase customer satisfaction.

What are best practices for agents?

  • Use standard greeting
  • Use Quick accept when on multiple chats
  • Reply quickly even if it to say you need more time
  • Use Canned Messages for standard responses
  • Use a simple pre-chat form and do not make too many fields mandatory
  • Ask for feedback (CSAT survey)
  • Use meaningful wrap-up (disposition codes)
  • Increase text size for accessibility purposes as applicable
  • Leverage suggestions for agent feedback on chatbot content
  • Use discussions. Agents can start discussions with a general department or an individual agent. When you select a department as discussion partner, Digital DX automatically assigns the discussion to an available agent in that department.

    Customers never see the content of a discussion, which makes this feature perfect for warm transfers, asking for help, or getting manager assistance on the fly. Alternatively, more experienced agents can use discussions in the background as a training tool.

Other Notes for Managers & Administrators

Setup and customization of BoldChat
The Agent Workspace itself does not provide administrative or setup features. BoldChat setup should be performed using the desktop Operator Client.
How is Visitor History generated?
On the Visitor History panel, operators are shown all previous chats and emails from a given visitor. The question arises: How does BoldChat determine a visitor's identity? How do we know a visitor is the same visitor? In simplest terms, chat visitors are identified by a visitor ID, while email visitors are identified by an email address. Chat visitors retain the same visitor ID as long as they use the same computer and browser and do not clear their cookies. It's relatively easy to identify visitors who use only chat or only email, but what happens when a visitor uses both chat and email? If the visitor provides an email address on a pre-chat form, we are able to connect their visitor ID (which we know from their chats) with their email (which they entered on a pre-chat form): We can say "This email address is associated with this visitor ID, so all previous chats with this visitor ID are from the person with this email address."

How to transfer a chat in the Agent Workspace

You can transfer chats to other Operators or departments in your Bold360 organization.

Important: You must have Actions > Chat > Assign Own permission to transfer chats.
  1. To transfer a chat to another team member, click Transfer at the bottom of the chat panel.


    Restriction: During remote access, Transfer is unavailable.

    Result: You are prompted to select an Operator or department.

  2. Select the receiving Operator or department and click Transfer.

    The No departments option includes those Operators who are not members of any department. You cannot remove this item from the department selector.

    Note: When you transfer a chat to an Operator, make sure their workload allows them to take an additional chat. The number next to an Operator's name represents their current tasks, excluding emails.

    Result: The chat is transferred and removed from your workspace (the column closes). The customer is not notified about the transfer, but the name of the new Operator will be displayed in the chat window.

Keep in mind that if Automatic Distribution is configured and you select Transfer Automatically then the chat will be assigned back to you if there are no other available Operators.

Transfer chats while monitoring sessions

You can transfer chats to an Operator in your organization while monitoring conversations.

  1. To list chats, click the arrow in the-top left corner of the Operator workspace above your list of sessions.
  2. Select a chat on the Queued or Assigned to Agent tab.

    Result: You can select multiple chats to transfer.

    Result: Optionally, select Transfer automatically to use automatic chat distribution and let Bold360 choose an available Operator.

  4. Click Transfer.
You can also transfer the chat to yourself by clicking Assign to me.

How can I tell who transferred the chat to me

When you open the chat on your workspace, you can see the name of the person who transferred the chat to you in the header of the chat message:

Depending on how the chat was transferred, you can see the following messages:

  • Transferred from Agent - The Operator manually transferred the chat to you.
  • Auto-transferred from Agent - The Operator selected the Transfer automatically option when transferring the chat. By doing so, Automatic Chat Distribution selected you as the most appropriate Operator to take over the chat.

How to download a list of work items to CSV in the Agent Workspace

You can download a list of work items in CSV format for a selected period. By doing so, you can run an audit on your work items any time.

Remember: You must have the appropriate user permission to see work items in Monitor View.
  1. In Monitor View, go to the tab where you want to export a list of work items.

    You can download this list on the Queue, Assigned to Agent, and Closed tabs.

  2. Select a period of time to list work items.
  3. At the top of the list, click Export to .CSV.

    On the Queue and Assigned to Agent tabs, it downloads all data of the first 700 work items, regardless of which columns are visible in Monitor View. On the Closed tab, it downloads the first 1000 work items.

What if I have more than 700 / 1000 work items on a tab?

Let's say, you have more than 1000 closed work items over a period of time. In this case, only the first 1000 items listed in Monitor View are exported. Here's what you can do to you can do the export the rest:

  • You can use the date selector to list your closed work items over a shorter period of time. Say, instead of listing 2 months of closed work items, you can display work items of the last month only. This way, you can export work items in two parts.
  • You can also filter, for example by date, which is a great way to display, and consequently export, only the latest 1000 work items.
  • Finally, you can use the department selector in the top-right corner to reduce the number of items displayed.

How to find chat transcripts in the Agent Workspace

How to accept a chat

To work with a chat, click it on the left side of the workspace under Live Sessions.

  • A red spot in the top-left corner of the page, above your work items, tells you that you have received a new work item.
  • Under Live Sessions, click any chat.

    Result: The chat opens in a column in the workspace to the right and is ready to work with.

  • To accept a chat without working on it right away, click Quick Accept.

    Result: With Quick Accept, the chat does not open in your workspace. Click the chat again to work with it.
    If a welcome message is set for the agent then clicking Quick Accept also sends that message to the customer. See How to set customer greetings.

  • A red spot tells you that the customer is waiting for a response. When the customer sends you more than one message, you see multiple red spots next to their name. A counter is also displayed if automatic chat distribution is set with the Channels > Chat > Automatic Distribution > Enable automatic distribution > Reassign unanswered messages option. In this case, when time runs out, the chat is reassigned to another agent and the status of the current agent is set to Away.

  • No, continue the chat - Select if you want to continue the conversation.
Note: If you accidentally selected not to display the confirmation dialog again, you can enable that dialog as follows:
  1. At the bottom left of the workspace, hover the mouse over the icon with your initials and select Settings.
  2. Enable Confirm end chat.

What are best practices for agents?

  • Use standard greeting
  • Use Quick accept when on multiple chats
  • Reply quickly even if it to say you need more time
  • Use Canned Messages for standard responses
  • Use a simple pre-chat form and do not make too many fields mandatory
  • Ask for feedback (CSAT survey)
  • Use meaningful wrap-up (disposition codes)
  • Increase text size for accessibility purposes as applicable
  • Leverage suggestions for agent feedback on chatbot content
  • Use discussions. Agents can start discussions with a general department or an individual agent. When you select a department as discussion partner, Digital DX automatically assigns the discussion to an available agent in that department.

    Customers never see the content of a discussion, which makes this feature perfect for warm transfers, asking for help, or getting manager assistance on the fly. Alternatively, more experienced agents can use discussions in the background as a training tool.

Let's say, you have more than 1000 closed work items over a period of time. In this case, only the first 1000 items listed in Monitor View are exported. Here's what you can do to you can do the export the rest:

  • You can use the date selector to list your closed work items over a shorter period of time. Say, instead of listing 2 months of closed work items, you can display work items of the last month only. This way, you can export work items in two parts.
  • You can also filter, for example by date, which is a great way to display, and consequently export, only the latest 1000 work items.
  • Finally, you can use the department selector in the top-right corner to reduce the number of items displayed.

How to manually start chatting with the next customer in queue

Agents can manually start an additional session when there are customers waiting in queue.

Digital DX is configured to distribute chats automatically between available agents, but agents can decide to manually take an additional chat from the queue if they can manage the extra workload. For information on Automatic Distribution, see How to automatically activate chats (Automatic Chat Distribution).

To start chatting with the customer who has been waiting for the longest period of time, click Take next queued chat on the left side of the workspace under Live Sessions. The chat is assigned to the agent regardless of the agent's status, and whether Automatic Distribution is enabled or the agent's concurrent limit is reached.

Remember: This feature is enabled by default. If an individual agent cannot use this feature then in the Web Admin Center, go to Organization > Agents and select the agent. On the Automatic Distribution tab, make sure that Take Next Queued is selected.

The chat opens in a new column in the workspace to the right.

How to discuss a customer's issue with another agent

You can collaborate with another agent in your organization to help you resolve a specific customer issue while you are chatting with the customer.

Discussions are private and are only visible to the agents who participate in the discussion. The customer does not see these messages.

Note:
  • You must have the Actions > Chats > Discussions permission enabled to use this feature.
  • You cannot run reports on discussions.
  1. To start a discussion, click Discuss at the bottom of the chat panel.


    Restriction: During remote access, Discussion is unavailable.

    Result: You are prompted to select a discussion partner.

    Result: The Discussion panel opens in a new column on your workspace. The discussion partner also receives a new notification on their workspace.

When the invited agent accepts the invitation, the Discussion panel opens. Both you and the invited agent will see the original chat and the discussion side by side.

Transfer the chat during a discussion

During a conversation, you can transfer the chat to your discussion partner. To do so, click Transfer to at the bottom of the discussion panel.
After transferring the chat, the discussion closes and the chat is removed from your workspace. The chat appears on the workspace of your discussion partner as an incoming chat message. The customer has a seamless chat experience and does not have to take any action during transfer.

If the discussion was initially assigned to a department, rather than directly to an agent, then when the agent transfers the chat, the following occurs:

  • The chat inherits the discussion's department
  • The chat is assigned to the discussion partner

What are best practices for discussing customer issues?

We recommend agents leverage the discussion feature. Agents can select a department as well as a specific agent to start a chat discussion. When you select a department as discussion partner, Digital DX automatically assigns the discussion to an available agent in that department. This allows for discussions to take place in the same window as customer chats so that agents never miss anything. It is also possible for multiple agents to participate in a discussion.

Customers never see the content of a discussion, which makes this feature perfect for warm transfers, asking for help, or getting manager assistance on the fly. Alternatively, more experienced agents can use discussions in the background as a training tool.

How to prepare a wrap-up

When the customer tries to start a new chat, they are notified that they are blocked from chatting on your website.
Administrators can view the list of blocked customer IPs in the Web Admin Center on the General > Restrictions page, under List customer IPs to be blocked from Chats. On this page, an administrator can also unblock customer IPs.

What's the agent experience like?

Agents can find and accept messaging conversations coming from WhatsApp or Microsoft Teams in the Bold360 Agent workspace.

Agents can view these conversations under the Messages channel:


When a messaging conversation is transferred from a chatbot or it is assigned to a human agent directly, customers' messages are queued and await assignment even when no agents are online right away. The customer can wait for the agent to respond. The bot becomes active again only as soon as the agent ends the conversation.

When the agent accepts a conversation, they can see the real name of the person they chat with since the messaging provider sends that information. The agent can also view all prior conversations between the customer and the business as well as the latest session information, including chatbot messages if a chatbot is set up.

To help agents handle incoming messages efficiently, Bold360 moves inactive conversations from the agent's workspace. This way, agents who have concurrent limits defined are not blocked by pending conversations. They can deal with other customers until the customer takes action in the messaging application. The conversation returns to the agent's view and continues where it ended, providing great response time and experience to the customer.

Bold360 offers various aids and options to optimize agent performance. See this article to learn more.

However, some functionality such as administrative tasks, setup, reporting, and customization must be configured or accessed from the desktop application. For more information, see Web Client.
  • The Agent Workspace (no download required) can be accessed at https://agent.bold360.com
    Note: For BoldChat customers, the Agent Workspace does have limited capabilities. The Agent Workspace can be used to access chats, emails, and SMS. Administrators and supervisors should use the Desktop Client. For more information on the Agent Workspace, see Agent Workspace - Operator Guide

How to manually start chatting with the next customer in queue in the Agent Workspace

Operators can manually start an additional session when there are customers waiting in queue.

Digital DX is configured to distribute chats automatically between available Operators, but Operators can decide to manually take an additional chat from the queue if they can manage the extra workload. For information on Automatic Distribution, see How to automatically activate chats (Automatic Chat Distribution).

To start chatting with the customer who has been waiting for the longest period of time, click Take next queued chat on the left side of the workspace under Live Sessions. The chat is assigned to the Operator regardless of the Operator's status, and whether Automatic Distribution is enabled or the Operator's concurrent limit is reached.

Remember: This feature is enabled by default and it does not matter whether an Operator is the member of a department. If an individual Operator cannot use this feature then in the Web Admin Center, go to Organization > Agents and select the Operator. On the Automatic Distribution tab, make sure that Take Next Queued is selected.

The chat opens in a new column in the workspace to the right.

How to block customers during chat in the Agent Workspace

You can block abusive customers during chat. Notice, however, that you cannot block offensive words, only customers.

Important: You must have the Actions > Chats > Block customer IP permission enabled to use this feature.
  1. During chat, click at the bottom of the chat panel.

  2. Confirm blocking the customer from chatting with you. This will end the chat.

    If you accidentally clicked the button and want to continue the chat, click No, continue the chat.

    Important: Keep in mind that blocking is based on IP address, therefore you will block all customers from a specific IP address.
When the customer tries to start a new chat, they are notified that they are blocked from chatting on your website.
Administrators can view the list of blocked customer IPs in the Web Admin Center on the General > Restrictions page, under List customer IPs to be blocked from Chats. On this page, an administrator can also unblock customer IPs.

How to prepare a wrap-up in the Agent Workspace

During a chat that is active or closed (but not ended), you can prepare a wrap-up to communicate useful information about the session.

Note: This feature is only available for Bold360 Plus subscribers and Bold360 AI platform accounts.
  1. To start writing your wrap-up, click My Wrap-up.

  2. When the customer needs you, click Back to chat.

How to find assignment history

Important: You must have Account settings > View Assignment History permission to view the Assignment History panel. Otherwise, you can only see the Customer History panel.

The Assignment History panel shows the lifecycle of a conversation within your organization. Each time the conversation is assigned to an Operator or department, Digital DX creates a new entry in the assignment history.

Assigned to
The Operator who was last assigned to the work item.
Assigned by
Name of the person who last assigned the conversation to the Operator. ACD is displayed when the conversation was assigned by Automatic Distribution. See How to automatically activate chats (Automatic Chat Distribution).
Department

Assigned at
Time and date when the work item was assigned to the Operator who is currently helping the customer.
Accepted at
Time and date when the Operator last accepted the conversation.
Reassigned / Ended at
Time and date when the conversation either ended or was reassigned. When a conversation ends, its lifecycle also ends and there will be no more entries in the assignment history.
Reassigned to
Name of the department that the conversation was reassigned to. Only visible for conversations that have already been reassigned by either an Operator or Automatic Distribution.
Reassigned by
Name of the person who reassigned the conversation to the Operator. ACD is displayed when the work item was assigned by Automatic Distribution. Only visible for conversations that have already been reassigned by either an Operator or Automatic Distribution.

How can Operators update the Desktop Client

By setting an Update Policy for the desktop Desktop Client, you can control how the Digital DX Desktop Client checks for new versions and what options operators are given when a new version is found.

When an operator in your account launches the Digital DX Desktop Client, do you want it to always check for newer versions? If a new version is detected, should it be optional or mandatory for the operator to install?

  1. From the main menu of the operator client, go to Setup > General Account Settings. The General Account Settings window is displayed.
  2. Click the Update Policy tab. You may need to scroll to the right to make the tab visible.
  3. Select an option under Check for updates upon login?
    Option Description
    Don't check Upon operator login, do not compare the latest official client version to the operator's current version
    Check and make update optional Digital DX Desktop Client compares the latest official client version to the operator's current version. If the latest official version is higher than the operators current version, the operator is shown a message offering a link to download the latest version. If the operator chooses to skip the update, they will not be prompted to download until an even newer version is detected. If the operator chooses to be reminded later, upon next login they will once again be shown a message offering a download link.
    Check and make update mandatory If the latest official version is higher than the operators current version, the operator is shown a message stating that a required update is available. The operators only option is to click the link and visit the download page at https://www.bold360.com/download. The operator must then download and install the update. The operator remains unable to use older versions.
    Note: Updates are never installed automatically. Operator action is always required to initiate the actual download and installation.
    Important: Operators must have local system administrator rights to be able to install Digital DX Desktop Client.
  4. Save your changes.
Note: Update Policy can also be set at https://setup.boldchat.com/ under General Account Settings > PC Client Update Policy.

How to use the BoldChat Web Client

The BoldChat web-based application, often called the web client, provides flexibility in non-Windows environments.

Most chat set-up and customization features are available in the web-based client, allowing organizations with smaller chat-only environments to do everything online. In larger settings, the web client is useful for chat operators who only need to login to take live chats from visitors.

The web client is available at https://web.boldchat.com, with additional administrative features at https://setup.boldchat.com.

Cross-Browser Compatibility
You can use the BoldChat web client to monitor visitors and chat interactions. Your operators need only an Internet connection and a leading browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari), so the web client is perfect for cross-platform deployments.
Web-based Chat Reporting
Web-based chat reporting provides an easy way to access chat reporting from any web browser on Windows and Mac. You can run, schedule and work with BoldChat reports interactively in HTML and you?ll find the chat data you need even faster and easier than before.
Limited Admin Functions
While many chat-focused set-up and customization options are available via the web client, the desktop Operator Client will still be required for larger or more complex chat deployments using permissions, skill routing, and/or automatic chat distribution. Reporting is also a PC Client feature at this time. Online setup features are available at https://setup.boldchat.com.
Multiple-Language Support
BoldChat is dedicated to agent efficiency, so we offer the web client in six additional languages beyond English. With just a few mouse clicks, chat operators can choose to use the web client?s chat functionality in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, or Brazilian Portuguese.
Secure
All data transferred from the BoldChat's Web application to BoldChat's servers is encrypted over an https connection secured by a high-grade 128-bit encryption.

The web-based client is meant to be an alternative to the desktop desktop Operator Client, not a full replacement. The web application provides core functionality, including the tools needed to manage chats, visits, canned messages, alerts and operators. However, some functionality such as administrative tasks, setup, reporting and customization must be configured or accessed from the desktop application.

Allowlists and the Bold360 platform

Allowlists and the Digital DX AI platform

To use Genesys DX, you may want to allowlist certain URLs so that its connected services are able to connect.

We recommend you add the following URLs to your network's allowlist:

  • *.boldchat.com, *bold360.com, *.bold360usercontent.com  - Genesys' service for adding chat to websites
  • *.nanorep.co ? The site for customers who have access to the Bold360 AI platform (Service, Advise, and Acquire)
  • authentication.logmeininc.com, auth.bold360.com - LogMeIn's sign-in service
  • launch.bold360.com, myaccount.logmeininc.com, profile.logmeininc.com - LogMeIn's MyAccount page, where you can manage and access all your LogMeIn products

*** Please note that *.logmeininc.com domains and IP Addresses/ranges are only needed temporarily while the BoldChat/Bold360 platforms complete their migration to Genesys architecture.

Note: This list includes sub-domains for the listed domains, so it is advisable to use wildcard rules wherever possible when you allow or block any LogMeIn service on your network. Specifically, we recommend you to allow *bold360.com and *logmeininc.com. The services themselves communicate using port 443 (HTTPS/SSL) and port 80, so you don't need to open any additional ports within a firewall.

LogMeIn IP ranges

We recommend you add LogMeIn domains and URLs to your network's allowlist instead of allowing LogMeIn IP ranges. If that is not feasible, refer to the list of LogMeIn IP addresses.

CIDR Notation Numeric IP Range Netmask Notation
67.217.80.0/23 67.217.80.0 - 67.217.81.255 67.217.80.0 255.255.254.0
95.172.70.0/24 95.172.70.0 - 95.172.70.255 95.172.70.0 255.255.255.0
173.199.52.0/23 173.199.52.1 - 173.199.53.254 173.199.52.0 255.255.254.0

IP addresses for the sign in service

To sign in to your Bold360 work environment, you must allow LogMeIn's sign-in service. To do that by IP addresses, add the following IPs to your firewall settings:

  • 34.199.209.240
  • 35.173.84.18
  • 78.108.120.24
  • 173.199.2.47
  • 173.199.4.47

Email addresses for the sign in service

Make sure you allow the following email addresses so that identity-related and authentication emails are received:

  • noreply@logmein.com
  • support@bold360.com

Third-party IP Ranges

You must also allowlist ranges for these third-party services based upon your use of these service providers:

Email Domains

For email invitations and correspondences from us and the BoldChat/Bold360 software, we recommend allowing the following email domains through your email's spam and allowlist filters.

  • noreply@logmein.com
  • support@bold360.com

*** Please note that *.logmeininc.com domains and IP Addresses/ranges are only needed temporarily while the BoldChat/Bold360 platforms complete their migration to Genesys architecture.

 

Update as of January 18, 2022

Beginning on October 9, 2021, additional changes are taking place as part of the migration process of the DX platform from LMI to Genesys. The failover will take place in 3 stages from LMI on-premise data centers to Genesys cloud-based environment which provides robustness, flexibility and better scalability to the DX platform.

[ACTION] - If you allow list Agent (formerly known as BoldChat) by domain (preferred to DNS or IP allowlisting), you will need to allowlist the following domains in your organization's network/firewall:

  • bold360.com
  • boldchat.com

Alternatively, you can allowlist the following DNS servers:
