Global Changes

In this release, you can define a primary account and then have your secondary accounts linked to it. This update allows you to switch between your accounts without having to log out and back in again. You have to log in to your primary account before you can switch between your primary and secondary accounts.

Accent Matching

Accent Matching is a tool that will change an agent's voice, in real time, to a voice with an accent from an English-speaking country. This will make it easier for contacts to understand agents whose native language is not English. It will also reduce frustration and improve customer satisfaction.

Agents will be able to select a voice avatar for each call. Voice avatars will include a male and female option for different English accents. This includes Australian, British, Irish, and US English accents.

You will be able to monitor Accent Matching with: 

  • An Accent Matching dashboard that shows the usage and minutes.

  • Recordings of calls that use Accent Matching. This will allow you to review the accent and assess the impact of the accent on your calls. Call recording for these calls will not be enabled by default.

In this initial controlled release of Accent Matching, you will need to download an audio driver to each agent's computer.

This feature will be available later in the release cycle.

CXone Bot Builder

Native Options Migrating from API Integrations to Scripts via Skill Store

Bot Builder has integrations with CXone and other products built into it by default. This includes CXone Expert, CXone Suite, Digital Experience, CXone Studio, and Salesforce. Currently, these options are available on the APIs tab in Bot Builder. They will now be located in the Bot BuilderSkill Store.

Bots that currently use affected API integration options will not be impacted. They will remain in your bot's configurations. However, if you create a new bot after this change occurs, these options will not be present under API Integrations.

Dialogue Designer to Build Conversation Flow

You will be able to build a conversational flow using the new dialogue designer. The dialogue designer will allow you to build a visual flow to map out the way stories, rules, and so on go together to create a complete conversation. This will make it easier to build a whole conversation out of the individual configuration elements in Bot Builder.

Improvements to Voice-Enabled Bot Builder Integrations via Virtual Agent Hub

Improvements will continue to be made to voice-enabled Bot Builder bots. Voice-enabling a Bot Builder bot takes place in Virtual Agent Hub with Studio scripting. In this release, the following improvements will be made: 

  • Bot Builder will be supported as a native integration option in Virtual Agent Hub. Native integrations will be easier to set up and maintain.
  • Full support for all channels through the Virtual Agent Hub integration, including digital channels. This means you will be able to use Virtual Agent Hub to manage all of your Bot Builder bots.
  • Security updates, including a new method of authenticating with Studio. This helps make the integration more secure.

CXone Dashboard

Evaluation and Coaching Trend widget

This widget will help you monitor agents' scores and coaching sessions. Unlike the current Evaluation and Coaching Events widget, this widget will get coaching information from the new coaching application. It will also enable you to check whether these coaching sessions contribute to score improvements.

This feature will be supported only for users with the CXone Quality Management Advanced or CXone Quality Management Premium license.

Digital Experience

Engagement Rule Builder

You will be able to create Guide engagement rules using the new rule builder. This will provide an additional way to create engagement rules for users who use Guide to offer chat.

CXone Mobile SDK

Video and Image Compression

Currently, if a video or image file is too large, the SDK discards it. In this release, if these types of files are too large, the SDK will attempt to compress them. If it can compress the file into an acceptable size, the attachment will send. This will make your mobile apps more flexible and user-friendly.

CXone Guide

Engagement Rule Builder

You will be able to create Guide engagement rules using the new rule builder. The rule builder will provide several prebuilt actions and conditions that you can customize to quickly create an engagement rule.

To access the rule builder, you will need to click the app selector and select Guide.

Any rules you created previously will not be migrated to the new rule builder. However, the ACD > GUIDE > Engagement Rules and ACD > GUIDE > Engagement Actions pages will remain for the time being. You will be able to continue creating and managing engagement rules on these pages or use the new rule builder.
