External Contacts:

Now, agents can transfer calls to Microsoft Teams Users and contacts outside of the contact center with the click of a button. External Contacts are easier to manage than Quick Connects and offer a tagging feature that allows your contacts to be categorized and searched for by area of expertise, department, or any other preferred category. In addition, because agents can see the statuses of all external contacts that are MS Teams users, they can determine who is available to answer the call.

External ContactsCanned Responses:

You asked, we listened!

Agents can now quickly send standard responses to customers in chats or view pre-configured responses during calls to help with consistency in messaging. Canned Responses can be configured into categories, and each response can be tagged to help your agents quickly search and locate the desired response.
