Conversations History

The Conversation History module allows you to review the transcripts of past conversations and label certain conversations for follow-up or further action.

The Advanced Conversation Analytics feature provides a more detailed view of the conversation, including events and custom tags, which can help you better understand the interaction between the customer and the virtual assistant. Custom Tags can be reused across conversations for training purposes and for identifying areas where the virtual assistant could improve.

Note: The Conversations History Dashboard is available only post the 9.3 release, i.e. post-July 24, 2022.

Navigating to the Conversation History Dashboard

To access the Conversation History Dashboard, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to the Kore.ai Platform and select the required Virtual Assistant.
  2. Click the Analyze tab on the top menu.
  3. Click Conversation History on the left navigation menu as shown below.

Filter Views Page

The Filter Views page is the preface or landing page displayed when you click the Conversations History left menu item. You can create and view prebuilt and custom filters, filter configurations, and descriptions on this page in addition to the following:

  • View the available conversation filters and their configurations.
  • Create a custom filter to view only the required data.
  • Access the Conversations History Dashboard for the selected preset.

Prebuilt Filters for Conversations History

As an analyst, you may need a customized view of the conversation’s history data based on specific conditional filters. This helps analyze conversations based on priority/criticality.

The Platform now supports Prebuilt Filters or Presets for the most common use case scenarios. Presets reduce the developer’s efforts in skimming through each conversation to understand and tag them for a specific use case.

How it works

  1. The system checks the configuration parameters and the filter conditions for a conversation session.
  2. The conversation session is mapped to the respective filter automatically.
  3. Based on the date range selected on the Conversations History Dashboard, the system fetches and displays the conversations that meet the Prebuilt Filters’ criteria.

Types of Prebuilt Filters

The following table displays each preset’s filter name, predefined configuration parameters, and description. For more information on the configuration parameters, please click here.

    Conversation with the Bot

    Conversation History

Define Alternate Text for JavaScript Messages

The Platform uses a default “JavaScript Message” label in the Chat History for bot messages written using JavaScript. Now, bot designers can add Alternate Text to these messages to explain their purpose more clearly. This Alternate Text will be shown along with the JavaScript label in the Chat History across the Platform.

The defined Alternate text is displayed in the message bubble whenever a JavaScript message appears as shown below:

The Platform uses a key-value pair to store the alternate text. The syntax for adding the alternate text is tags.addAlternatetextTag(“value”).

AlternateText” is the key that stores the value you provide. For example, tags.addAlternatetextTag(“This is a JavaScript Message”).

Important Considerations

  • You can define static and dynamic values for the alternate text.
  • Alternate text can be defined for JavaScript messages in user prompts, error prompts, Small Talk, standard responses, FAQs, and events.
  • The Platform assigns the latest to a message when you add multiple Alternate text values.
  • In the Chat History window, the Platform substitutes the payload label with an alternative text tag for all channel templates, excluding the SDK Template.

Message Tags

Message Tags help identify and categorize messages in the chat transcript. They add clarity and context to the conversation and can be reused across related conversations. System-defined message tags are provided by default, but users can create custom tags by defining a key-value pair. The key is used as an identifier for the specific message, and the value is the expected customer response to that message.

Important:

  • You cannot add the same key to a message again.
  • A custom message tag can only be added and detached from a message and not edited.

To add a custom message tag, follow the steps below:

  1. Hover over the message transcript in the conversation where you wish to add the message tag.
  2. Click +Message Tag.
  3. In the Add Message Tag window, enter the Key and Value in their respective text fields.
  4. Click Save. The new message tag is displayed below the message in the transcript slider.

Note: The custom message tag you create is available in the Custom Tags Filters section as one of the filtering criteria.

The Feedback Survey feature allows customers to provide feedback on their conversations with the virtual assistant.

If enabled, the customer’s response to the survey will be displayed in the chat transcript under Chat History.

The system captures and displays a feedback event label “End of Conversation: Survey Type” on the chat transcript, indicating the end of the conversation and the survey type.

The response will be mapped to a key-value pair for the conversation timeline, which can be useful for analyzing the conversation and customer experience at a granular level. This information is useful to improve the virtual assistant’s performance and enhance the customer experience.

The Conversation Summary displays the following information on the Feedback event:

  1. The Start Time and End Time, along with the real-time counts for the following:
  • User Messages
  • Bot Messages
  • Intents Identified
  • Intents Unidentified
  • Tasks Completed
  • Failed Tasks
  1. The Feedback Event is based on the event timeline with Key and Value.
  2. The total number of feedback responses collected for the session and the following:
  • Type of Feedback
  • Feedback response
  • Score

    Conversation History

Define Alternate Text for JavaScript Messages

The Platform uses a default “JavaScript Message” label in the Chat History for bot messages written using JavaScript. Now, bot designers can add Alternate Text to these messages to explain their purpose more clearly. This Alternate Text will be shown along with the JavaScript label in the Chat History across the Platform.

The defined Alternate text is displayed in the message bubble whenever a JavaScript message appears as shown below:

The Platform uses a key-value pair to store the alternate text. The syntax for adding the alternate text is tags.addAlternatetextTag(“value”).

AlternateText” is the key that stores the value you provide. For example, tags.addAlternatetextTag(“This is a JavaScript Message”).

Important Considerations

  • You can define static and dynamic values for the alternate text.
  • Alternate text can be defined for JavaScript messages in user prompts, error prompts, Small Talk, standard responses, FAQs, and events.
  • The Platform assigns the latest to a message when you add multiple Alternate text values.
  • In the Chat History window, the Platform substitutes the payload label with an alternative text tag for all channel templates, excluding the SDK Template.

Message Tags

Message Tags help identify and categorize messages in the chat transcript. They add clarity and context to the conversation and can be reused across related conversations. System-defined message tags are provided by default, but users can create custom tags by defining a key-value pair. The key is used as an identifier for the specific message, and the value is the expected customer response to that message.

Important:

  • You cannot add the same key to a message again.
  • A custom message tag can only be added and detached from a message and not edited.

To add a custom message tag, follow the steps below:

  1. Hover over the message transcript in the conversation where you wish to add the message tag.
  2. Click +Message Tag.
  3. In the Add Message Tag window, enter the Key and Value in their respective text fields.
  4. Click Save. The new message tag is displayed below the message in the transcript slider.

Note: The custom message tag you create is available in the Custom Tags Filters section as one of the filtering criteria.

The Feedback Survey feature allows customers to provide feedback on their conversations with the virtual assistant.

If enabled, the customer’s response to the survey will be displayed in the chat transcript under Chat History.

The system captures and displays a feedback event label “End of Conversation: Survey Type” on the chat transcript, indicating the end of the conversation and the survey type.

The response will be mapped to a key-value pair for the conversation timeline, which can be useful for analyzing the conversation and customer experience at a granular level. This information is useful to improve the virtual assistant’s performance and enhance the customer experience.

The Conversation Summary displays the following information on the Feedback event:

  1. The Start Time and End Time, along with the real-time counts for the following:
  • User Messages
  • Bot Messages
  • Intents Identified
  • Intents Unidentified
  • Tasks Completed
  • Failed Tasks
  1. The Feedback Event is based on the event timeline with Key and Value.
  2. The total number of feedback responses collected for the session and the following:
  • Type of Feedback
