Managing and using discussion types

When a conversation is ended, the agent can tag the discussion using conversation types. These types (also called discussion types) then allow statistical data to be extracted according to the conversation topic.

1/ Managing discussion types

1. Add a new discussion type
Click on "People" -> "Content" and select "Type of conversation" on the dropdown menu located in the upper left hand corner.
Click on the  to add a new type

Enter the name of the new conversation type and choose if it should be used by your agents, by the experts or both. (only visible if the Community or Ibbü have been activated in your account).

2. Edit conversation types
Click on the to modify the name or the availability of a conversation type.




3. Put a conversation type OFF
You don't have the possibility to delete completely the conversation types. However you can switch them ON or OFF  so that they will keep on being display in your statistics but the agent's won't see them in their discussion panel. Once a conversation type has been deactivated, the agent can't select it anymore in the dropdown menu. 



2/ Using conversation types
When a conversation is being closed (or at a later point, from the chat logs), the agent is asked to tag the conversation. This step consists in tagging the conversation using one or more types, and also adding an end of discussion note if necessary.

This is when the discussion types are used.

Note: it is possible to force agents to use at least one discussion type. It is also possible to prevent them from creating new types. To do this, please contact the iAdvize support team.

A Manager or Administrator can also tag a conversation afterwards : 
Reports -> Conversations -> Edit a conversation 

... and can also remove unsuitable labels. 



3/
Take advantage of the conversation types
If the conversations have been tagged, you can filter your reports by type and highlight productivity factors.
