NICE inContact Social Media Overview

Use the NICE inContact Social Media application in Agent for Salesforce to handle inbound Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Viber activities. The Social workspace (aka Conversation App) lets you perform various actions for these inbound activities. If a contact sends follow-up messages after your initial response within the same contact and conversation, you receive those follow-up messages within the conversation app.

Social media interactions are generated as work items; however, if they are put on hold or transferred, the contact panel will disappears preventing further interaction.

Allows you to respond to the contact, access the emoji menu, upload images when using qualifying social media networks and activity types, and swap accounts you want to use to respond to the contact. If an interaction is private or direct, you cannot swap between accounts to respond with. This feature benefits Twitter, because you can route @mentions but also filtered #hashtags.

4—Info Tab
