What are Incident Reference Smart Tags and how do I use them?

Resolution:

Oracle Service Cloud offers Smart Tags for incident reference numbers.   

Incident reference numbers within Outlook emails are recognized and the agent can open the incident record directly from the email message

Incident Smart Tag in Microsoft Outlook (note the space between the reference # and cursor)

When an agent is logged into the Oracle Service Cloud application, incident reference numbers within Outlook emails are recognized and the agent can open the incident record directly from the email message.  This integration is a helpful and time-saving feature for service agents. 

You must contact Oracle Service Cloud Technical Support to enable Outlook Integration in order to use smart tags, and then you must install Smart Tags on your local machine in order for Outlook to recognize them.

To Install Smart Tags:

  1. Close Outlook.
  2. In the console, click the application button in the top left corner and select Links > Install Incident Reference Number Smart Tag. The SmartTag Setup Wizard opens.
  3. Click the Next button to open the Select Installation Folder window.  Choose the location you want the folder to reside in.  It is recommended to choose the default of:
    C:\Program Files\RightNow Technologies, Inc\RightNow SmartTag
  4. Click the Next button to open the Confirm Installation window, and follow the on screen instructions to complete the installation.

Important: When you re-open Outlook, type in a valid reference number preceded by a #, then insert a space or hit <enter> or input any character just after the reference number as described above and shown in the screenshot. Then, mouse over the reference number in Outlook to see the Smart Tag tooltip.

If you are using Outlook 2010, you must right-click the reference number and select Additional Actions to view smart tag options.

Note: There are known issues with Microsoft Windows XP SP2 / Office 2003 and Windows XP SP3 / Office 2003.  Smart Tags may not work correctly until additional steps are taken.  In order to fix Smart Tags in these cases, the user must follow the steps described in this link: Microsoft Support Article ID: 884197
