What is Chat Flexible Incident Editing?


Chat - Agent Console, Workspaces
Oracle B2C Service, All supported versions


With Flexible Incident Editing allows for incidents to always contain the full chat transcript.

You can also create a single, blended workspace containing all editable incident, contact and chat fields.  No more switching between tabs, this is more efficient for the agent. Chat workspaces contain new options:

  • Search - invokes an incident search report, which is configurable from the workspace designer
  • Change – allows the agent to associate the chat with a different incident than the one currently selected.  Also invokes the incident search report
  • Add New – creates a new incident, associates it with this chat, and opens it for editing as a new tab
  • Open – opens the incident associated with this chat in a new tab
  • Print – prints the incident record
  • Clear – removes the incident association for this chat

Administrators control if, when, and how an incident is created.  This is done via Chat Options button on the workspace designer.

To Edit the Chat Options settings:

  1. Click the Configuration button in the navigation pane.
  2. Double-click Workspaces under Application Appearance. The workspaces explorer opens on the content pane.
  3. Right-click the chat workspace that you want to edit and select Open.
  4. From the Home tab, select the Options button located in the Workspace Properties section.
  5. The Chat Options editor opens.
  6. Select your Related Incident Options or Other Options, click OK
  7. Save the workspace
