Interact provides four methods that a customer can use to connect with an Agent for assistance in real time: Call Now, Call Return, Chat and Email.
For details about how to add any of these methods in a Flow using the Designer, click here.
Configuring Connectivity Methods
In order to use any of Interact's connectivity methods, you first need to configure the method in the Admin Console.
Note: As part of the configuration process, you can also create a set of After Hours and Holidays Schedules that specify the time periods during which Agents are not available to respond to customer calls and chats.
You can configure connectivity methods both at the account level and at the Application level.
Account-Level (Global) Configuration
To configure default connectivity settings for each of the methods used in an account, refer to any of the following articles:
|Method||Admin Console Page (Account-Level Configuration)|
|Call Now||Connectivity Settings|
|Call Return||Connectivity Settings|
|Email Settings (Outgoing and Incoming)|
The Connectivity panel in some Application channel types enables you to specify the connectivity settings that will be used only for the selected Application:
