Important: Feature deployment schedule
Genesys is modifying the regional deployment schedule for the release of new features. This week’s features will begin to deploy on Wednesday, with full deployment across all regions expected to be completed by the end of the day Friday.

Customer engagement

In-queue and scheduled callback automation

Administrators and contact center managers can now automate portions of the callback process to provide agents an automated experience when they handle scheduled and in-queue callbacks. The callback queue configuration offers options to Auto-Answer, Auto-Dial, and Auto-End Callback interactions. This feature removes the need for agents to perform manual actions and leads to improved handle times for in-queue and scheduled callbacks. For more information, see Create and configure queues , Enable communication level After Call Work and automatic callbacks , and Place, transfer, and dismiss a callback. This feature requires no restriction by user or required user to access.

External contact management user interface refresh

External Contacts has a new look and feel. Improvements to the user interface include alignment with the appearance of contact and organization views, a more streamlined process to create and edit contacts, and implementation of common components for editing fields. These enhancements ensure a more consistent and user-friendly approach to contact management within Genesys Cloud. The dedicated toggle in the user interface that enables users to switch between the new, default version and the old version is available until February 27, 2024. For more information, see the community post: Coming soon: Refresh of Contact Management UI.

Increased support for non-E.164 format phone numbers in Single Customer View
