Execution

This section helps you verify how the conversations from the Kore.ai XO Platform are being handed over to the Salesforce agent after enabling it.

To verify the data exchange between Kore.ai’s VA and Salesforce agent, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Salesforce Chat Console and launch the Live Agent that you created in Step 1.
    Note: The Salesforce Chat Console URL is unique for your region and company. Contact your Salesforce System Administrator to find your Chat Console URL.
