Industry Shortcut Editor
Industry shortcuts (e.g. Auto, Apartment, Real Estate) are packaged and distributed with the ContactAtOnce! Agent Client software. The shortcut package to be used for any given chat conversation is determined by the server based on the Publisher account settings. The identifier for that shortcut package along with other conversation specific information are sent to the Agent Client Software at the start of the conversation.
Publishers now have the ability to create a custom industry shortcut package that can be distributed to all agents of any merchant associated with their account.

MTC Enhancements
The ContactAtOnce! Go App provides the ability to send videos in a Mobile Text Connect conversation. When those videos are played, notification is sent to the Agent who uploaded the video. If the Agent is online with the Go App when the video is viewed, the notification is sent via alert in the Go App and becomes part of the conversation transcript. If the Agent is offline when the video is viewed, the notification is sent via email which is shown below. This email now includes a link back to the Video Library page for that conversation as well as a link to the MTC conversation itself (portal login required to see this page).
