Creating quick text

Quick text messages are the common questions or responses that agents provide to self-service users. By using quick text messages, agents can resolve the issues faster and hence save time.  

Some examples of quick text messages are as follows:

  • How are you today?
  • What is the problem?
  • I am going to close this ticket.
  • I just put a file in the transfer area for you.

As an administrator, you define quick text messages or enable grouping of similar messages into quick text groups so that all agents in the system can access and use these quick text messages or quick text groups.

Agents can also create quick text messages for individual use. Agents can create quick text groups if the administrator has enabled quick text grouping. 

Before you begin 

Make sure you have read how canned text is displayed to agents.
