Trigger suggestions

The Agent Assist panel is responsible for triggering suggestions. You have no specific action to take. Start talking with your contact as you would do usually.

When your contact is talking, the system analyzes their words for questions or keywords. When questions or keywords are identified, the Agent Assist panel displays FAQ or article suggestions that you can read or use to help you respond to your contact.

Each article suggestion includes a title, a short snippet, and a link. To open the full page in your web browser, click View Full Article.

Agent Assist uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to evaluate the questions and keywords that it detects in a conversation with a contact. It matches the questions, phrases, and character strings to documents in your organization’s knowledge base and selects the answers that best match the question. By providing feedback about suggestion matches, you can improve the search results in the future for yourself and your colleagues.
