Just for Fun: Filtered FebruaryBlog
When you work in customer service, you’re bound to have brushes with questionable content. Maybe you saw something you wish you hadn’t, or maybe you just wanted to prevent a bot from repeatedly harassing your system. Is there an unexpected word you had to start filtering out, or a particular mailing list you just couldn’t unsubscribe from? Tell us the ridiculous stories that you had to suffer through, the systems you devised to block unwanted senders, or the unusual, blue, or unusually blue words that had to be incorporated into an otherwise professional setting! Let’s have some laughs this month by sharing in the silliness, and hopefully learning a tip or two along the way.

AMA 1/25 Recap: Automations, 3rd party WhatsApp integrations, and Identifying Inbound Auto-responses
Thank you to everyone who attended yesterday’s Community AMA! This event featured a lot of excellent questions and group discussion, as our facilitators @bryce.coleman and myself addressed obstacles from several individuals and teams, and touched on a range of solutions for each. Below is a recap of the conversation we had. Automating Data Collection For New Inbound ConversationsThe first segment of the AMA focused on best practices for grouping new conversations by targeting available data. In addition to looking for keywords in the subject line, message body, or the sender’s email itself, the chat channel was recommended as a useful method of obtaining additional information, through passive collection (like reporting the webpage from which chat was accessed), and active collection (such as asking questions with tools like the Conversational Assistant). This topic was readdressed in another discussion about identifying inbound customer texts by timezone. A solution for this was sugg
