Client Settings Tab

This tab enables you to define the default presentation, layout, and functionality of the Agent Application.

Settings on the tab will vary according to whether the Agent Scripting dropdown menu is set to the Full Agent Scripting or Interaction History Only option.

The following shows settings that are displayed when Full Agent Scripting is selected:

Show Tabs Determines whether Flows are opened in new tabs. Separate settings can be configured for use with the Desktop (standalone) application and the Embedded (widget-based) application. Yes
Show Search Box Determines whether the search tool is shown or hidden. Separate settings can be configured for use with the Desktop (standalone) application and the Embedded (widget-based) application. Yes

For example, if the value is set at 2, all Interactions that were saved within the last 2 days are listed in the Saved Interactions list. Values for this setting can range from 0-9999 days. No
Maximum number of saved interactions to show Determines the maximum number of saved Interactions to retrieve. For example, if this value is set to 50, and there are 200 saved Interactions, only the first 50 will be listed in the Saved Interactions list. No
