Transfer to Agent in Teams?

Posted on by 10

Is there a way for me to transfer customers to agents within Teams when they need to escalate to a human?

 

We don't use Dynamics so Omnichannel isn't an option.

 

I'm wondering whether or not I could put something together with Power Automate which essentially looks at the status of a set group of people, and then transfers to the first available agent based on 'Teams Status'?

 

Not idea, and would leave a reporting gap, but better than nothing!

    Hi IdaTA, 

    That's right, you can use Dynamics 365 or different engagement availables (see picture).

    Yes. we already have access to Teams and the other included apps. 
    My wish is to transfer the conversation from the bot in PVA (now Copilot Studio) with customers, to agents within Teams when they need to escalate to a human. To my understanding I need to buy Dynamics 365 Customer Service and the Customer Service Digital Messaging Add-in to make this possible - do you know if that is correct?

    Hello,
    Uses the same O365 licenses you already have, active users have access to Teams and other included apps

    Hi, 
    Thank you for the help! I want to be able to make the hand-off to a real agent in Teams through the chatbot (the customer still needs to communicate in the chat, but with a real person instead of the bot when the hand-off is made). Which licenses do I need to buy to be able to do this?

    Hi prufach, 

     

    In a call to action first are you using basic action, connector or plugin, you are creating flow? How to transfer to teams with variable in call to action as you showed?

    Hi vip01

    To return to the main topic, I recommend use an action to redirect and claar history.

    You can also use keywords to redirect to the topic.

    Hi vip01

    Throughout the chat it has different types of variables to store the information (image 1)
    When you will transfer to the agent, use an action and add all the variables (image 2)
