Filter the Copilot content based on entity attributes 

Public Preview Feb 2024

Your customer service agents constantly burdened with the task of manually selecting content filters. To enhance their efficiency, you need to streamline this process. Copilot‘s latest feature does just that, offering a solution that not only saves time but also improves the quality of responses. 

In its ongoing quest to simplify content filtering, Copilot in Customer Service now offers automated filtering based on specific attributes derived from entities like customer profiles. The result? A seamless experience for your agents and customers alike. 

For instance, consider a customer’s profile attribute, like location. Copilot effortlessly matches this attribute with the corresponding field in the entity. Only records with matching field values are utilised to generate responses. When this automated filtering occurs, agents receive notifications, ensuring they’re always in the loop about the new filters in action. 

Simply put, this feature streamlines content filtering, reducing the need for agents to manually select filters. This efficiency results in time savings and a more productive workflow for the team. By automatically separating content from different sources based on specific attributes, this feature ensures that responses are of higher quality. Agents can deliver more accurate and relevant information to customers. 

Also, with the burden of manual filter selection lifted, agents can focus more on engaging with customers, providing better support, personalising customer interactions, and building stronger customer relationships.

How long does it take for your customer service agents to search and craft responses to customer emails?  

Customer service agents often spend hours searching and crafting responses to their customer emails. While you try your best to provide personalised and timely support to your customers, avoiding generic template responses are not always possible.  

Thanks to this Copilot feature, powered by generative AI, you can now create highly personalised contextual email replies tailored to each customer’s unique needs with a single click. That means you have the power to choose from predefined response prompts or even create custom prompts for complex customer emails. In other words, it puts you in control, allowing you to fine-tune and edit the suggested email reply as needed. 

The business benefits of this update are substantial. Customer service agents can now deliver top-notch email support in a fraction of the time, saving valuable minutes. This efficiency translates to higher productivity and the ability to handle a larger volume of customer requests. By providing personalised and contextual responses, Copilot also ensures that customers feel heard and valued.

Route calls to agents who are least active 

General Availability Oct 2023 

Are you looking to optimise your agent assignments and improve customer satisfaction? Do you want your agents to be at their best between calls? 

In the 2022 second release, Microsoft introduced a preview of a new call routing method called Most idle assignment for voice queues. Now, in Microsoft 2023 second release for Dynamics 365 Customer Service, it has announced that this feature is going to be generally available as Least Active routing. The core functionality remains the same as it was during the public preview. 

With Least Active routing, your organisation can automatically assign phone calls to agents who have been least active for the longest duration. This means you’ll make the best use of your agents’ availability, leading to improved customer satisfaction. Additionally, your agents will have more time to rest between calls, which can boost their engagement and overall performance.  

For new voice queues, Least Active will be the default assignment method, simplifying your setup. And for existing voice queues, there’s no change required, ensuring a seamless transition.
