Automatic presence changes when setting a Reason Code.

We are excited to announce a new feature on WebAgent that will improve your experience as an agent. With this update, when you click on a reason code through the MePerson, your Teams client will be updated to reflect your current work status (e.g. Away, Busy). In addition, users can change the reason code and the agent presence will be automatically updated through the MsGraph API connection of the Core.

To enable this additional permissions need to be applied to the Azure Application used for retrieving presence, see: Microsoft Graph Presence Publisher Configuration

Throttling Throttling, in the context of a software cloud delivery service, is the practice of temporarily suspending or diminishing access to a service offering to a cloud customer. Because cloud platforms are mostly multi-tenant, shared platforms and the usage at any moment of many customers is unpredictable, throttling is a normal and logical procedure of retaining a cloud service for all customers, sometimes at the expense of one or a handful of customers who are at that time using too many resources for the backend platform. Not only a customer itself, but also a "noisy neighbour" on the same platform can be the cause of throttling. Usually service will be resumed at a normal level after a short cool-down period, but can even take up to 24 hours or more. In Microsoft 365 throttling is usually indicated by "429 errors" or "server too busy" messages in logfiles or replies. of Events for expired UCC A Unified Contact Center, or UCC, is a queue of interactions (voice, email, IM, etc.) that are handled by Agents. Each UCC has its own settings, IVR menus and Agents. Agents can belong to one or several UCCs and can have multiple skills (competencies). A UCC can be visualized as a contact center “micro service”. Customers can utilize one UCC (e.g. a global helpdesk), a few UCC’s (e.g. for each department or regional office) or hundreds of UCC’s (e.g. for each bed at a hospital). They are interconnected and can all be managed from one central location. credentials (SQL and Sharepoint)

When credentials expire for connections from UCC to SQL and/or SharePoint the hosting server will get throttled severely affecting performance or even shutdown. These events will now be managed. The retry time for connections will now be steadily increased to avoid flooding of repetitive events so admins can take appropriate actions and warnings to affected customers and partners can be sent out.

Removed auto-answer UCC calls from Snapper

Due to changes in the classic Teams client distinguishing between various types of audio calls is no longer possible. Therefore only answering of all Audio calls is possible. The new Teams client has never had a capability (yet) to detect incoming audio calls therefore the Auto-answer function for new Teams does not work in Snapper.
