kommunicate product updates may 2019

Our team is working hard each and every day to bring the best customer support software experience to you. This time we have done a lot of improvements in our web app and released new versions of SDKs and Agent Apps.

If you have missed April release updates, read here.

Web App

Welcome messages from bots

If you are using bots, then you need to set Welcome Messages from the bot section only. This is in place to avoid multiple welcome messages going from both the Dashboard and Bots.

Now there will be a notification in Welcome Messages settings. (Notification: You are currently using bots in conversation. You cannot set the welcome message from here). Learn more about this here.

Block/Unblock users

Now you can block or unblock user with just a click of a button. Blocking can be done in 2 ways.

1) Go to the User section and just hover over the user whom you want to block then you will see the block option at the edge of the right side.

2) Go to the conversation section and click on particular user conversation than in the user profile section you will see the block user option.

Once you block the user, they will be unable to send you any messages. You can unblock them manually again.

This functionality is basically added to block the spammers.

User data

We have updated the User section data. User ID will be shown instead of last contacted.
