Agent for Service Cloud Voice for Administrators

This overview is for administrators, if you're an agent, see Agent for SCV – Agents.

Agent for Service Cloud Voice (SCV) is a contact handling application for the Salesforce Service Cloud. It is embedded into the Omni-Channel widget, rather than in a stand-alone window like MAX.

This Agent integration is unique in that it uses the Lightning Web Components (LWC) of the Salesforce Service Cloud. This makes the integration lightweight with fast performance. It may be a preferred voice option if your organization uses any of the Salesforce digital channels, such as chat, SMS, or email-to-case. This Agent option enables you to take advantage of the CXone voice channel instead of using Amazon Connect.

The agent-specific page for Agent for SCV provides information on the application's user interface.

Technical Details

  • If agents are assigned to multiple outbound skills, calls are made using the lowest skill ID number. They cannot select a specific skill.
  • If you have existing Studio scripts that you have used for other agent applications, you can also use those scripts for Agent for SCV. If the scripts have features that are not yet available for this agent, the script will still route the call. Unsupported functionality will not work, like dispositions.
  • Any skills used to route calls through this Agent cannot require dispositions. Since dispositions are unsupported, calls get stuck if you require it in the skill.
  • CXone permissions do not affect Agent for SCV. Instead, users must have one of two Salesforce permission sets. Administrators must have Contact Center Admin (Partner Telephony) and agents must have Contact Center Agent (Partner Telephony).
