Cobrowsing Powerup updates

 

Fix

  

We've fixed some long running cobrowsing issues, including sessions showing the visitor as "offline" when the session started.

To initiate a cobrowsing session in Olark Classic (chat.olark.com) click the "Launch Cobrowsing" button in the right sidebar, as usual.

You'll receive a notification with a link to the cobrowsing session. Click the link to open the cobrowsing session in a new tab.

And that's it! Full control, scroll and point, and highlight features have also been restored.

Beta Update: a fresh new layout

 

Olark Beta

 

New Feature!

  

We've added some new filters and functionality to the Beta agent experience!

  • My Inbox is where your active conversations will live just as they do now.
  • Team Inbox will show you all live conversations your teammates (that are using Beta) are currently engaged in - including the conversation contents.
  • Recent Contacts will show you all recent contacts/conversations - similar to the transcripts page of your Olark dashboard. (More updates to this section coming soon.)
  • Website Contacts shows you live visitors on your website, much the way the visitor list in Olark Classic does.

CoPilot chatbot improvements

 

Improvement

 

CoPilot Chatbots

  

Several improvements to our reporting of CoPilot chatbot conversations were released today.

  • Conversations between visitors and bots will now appear as "Conversation with CoPilot" in your dashboard and transcripts

  • Conversations with only Copilot bot messages (if the visitor doesn't respond to the bot) are labeled "CoPilot Message" and will have the missed chat icon in the upper left on the transcripts page

  • Conversations that involve both a bot and an agent will appear as normal conversations in your transcripts and dashboard

  • If CoPilot tries to transfer a chat to a live agent but the agent doesn't respond, the conversation will be marked as a missed chat and agents may be forced offline to avoid further missed conversations

  • Agent response time now reflects the time between when the bot transfers the conversation to the agent and the agent's first response, rather than first visitor message to first agent message.

Hide a conversation in Beta

 

Olark Beta

 

New Feature!

  

We've added the option to hide a conversation that you're no longer assigned to, so agents can dismiss a conversation that's been assigned to another agent.

Click the Hide Conversation link in the info message that appears and the conversation will be removed from your New Contacts queue.

You'll now find a translation icon in Olark Beta that allows an agent to enable and disable translation while mid-conversation.

Clicking the icon immediately toggles translation on or off.

Trolls, amiright?

 

Olark Beta

 

New Feature!

  

Sometimes they just don't take a hint.

We've long allowed agents to block troublesome chatters on a more permanent basis by targeting the visitor's IP address.

Today we added a button in Beta that copies the visitor's IP address to your clipboard for this purpose.
