This feature provides insight into call drivers, customer sentiment, and agent skills and performance, based on topics and events detected during a customer interaction. Managers can use the aggregated metrics to better understand customer and agent behavior during the interaction. For more information, see Topic Trends Summary view and Topic Trends Detail view.

Agent ACD skills and language proficiency routing improvement
Contact center managers and supervisors can now add proficiency values to language skills when assigning them to agents. Previously, the agent’s overall proficiency score did not include language proficiency values. Because ACD routing now combines language proficiency ratings with ACD skill ratings, contact center managers and supervisors no longer need to create separate ACD skills for language proficiency ratings when using the Best Skills Available evaluation method. For more information, see Routing and evaluation methods and Add an ACD skill or language to a user. This feature requires one of the following subscriptions: Genesys Cloud User 1, Genesys Cloud User 2, or Genesys Cloud User 3.

Previously, the list did not include programs with outstanding unpublished changes. For more information, see Speech and text analytics. This feature requires one of the following subscriptions: Genesys Cloud User 3, Genesys Cloud User 1 WEM Upgrade II, or Genesys Cloud User 2 WEM Upgrade I.
