Next up, “Respond till” and “Resolve till” are now much more accurate. But before we explain the updates, let’s cover what these functions are. “Respond till” is your SLA regarding how quickly you need to respond to a message from a customer. “Resolve till” is your SLA that dictates how quickly you need to resolve a ticket.
In the past, “Respond till” calculated from the time when the last message was received from a customer. But what if a customer had sent you messages about an issue at 8pm Saturday, 7pm Sunday and 7am Monday morning?
Then, when you began work at 9am on Monday, it would have appeared to you that the customer had only been waiting two hours for a response (since they sent their last message on Monday morning). If you had your “Respond till” SLA set at three hours, you would falsely believe you were still within the appropriate window. However, in actuality, they’ve been waiting for a response since sending their first message on Saturday, which far exceeds your SLA.
We’ve addressed the issue by setting “Respond till” to calculate the time since a customer sent their first message. That way, you know that this inquiry needs to be made a top priority because the customer has already been waiting multiple days for a reply from your team (in this example, anyway).
First of all, when you create a new SLA in the Replyco system, you can now decide how you would like for it to be calculated. You can choose either calendar hours or working hours. That means, for instance, that if you elect to calculate an SLA by working hours, your time will only begin counting down during the hours your business is open. But if you select calendar hours, the time to handle the SLA will begin running as soon as a message is received, even if it’s during your off-hours.
You can also now choose how you want tickets to be sorted. For example, you can have your tickets sorted by priority (recent, overdue, etc.), or decide not to do so. The control is entirely in your hands.
Additionally, you now have the ability to use our new “Priority” field in the filter to hone in on any specific SLAs you’d like to see. For instance, if you only want to view tickets that are overdue, then select “Overdue” in the “Priority” field.
We’ve also added a ton of new customization and improvements to our Live Chat widget. Find them all below:
- Users can now turn the Live Chat widget visibility on / off during and outside of working hours for both desktop and mobile devices.
- Users and customers can now see the online statuses of one another in the Live Chat widget.
- A typing indicator has been added for both users and customers.
- The website page / URL from which a Live Chat customer message originated will now display in the widget.
- Open/closed statuses for Live Chat are now available. This means users can organize Live Chat conversations in accordance with whether they are open or closed into the appropriate tabs.
- Live Chat widget now displays better on mobile devices.
- Both the Live Chat and Instant Messaging interfaces have been improved.
- Files attached in Instant Messages now send more efficiently and effectively.
This one may seem small, but it’s incredibly useful. Draft messages will now auto-save every few seconds, so you don’t have to retype your message if you leave and come back to it later.
Want to apply different SLA settings during weekends or assign tickets to specific users on certain days of the week? You can now do so with our new “Day of Week” condition.
Users can now see when another team member is inside a ticket from the Main Ticket List, in order to avoid overlapping efforts.
Automation Merge:Automation features including templates, auto-responses and rules have all been merged into one Automation page.
Company Settings in Admin Tab:Company settings have been transferred to the Admin tab, and only users with the appropriate permissions can view them.
