Voice and Video Escalation
This feature is available to organizations using Live Assist for Microsoft Dynamics version 3.7.0 (April 2018 release) or later.
CRM Agents can escalate chat and co-browse sessions with their customers from within Microsoft Dynamics 365, into video- or voice-only calls immediately. There is no need for any special downloads or plug-ins. Agents can start calls with customers as one-way or two-way calls, as required. Whether your visitors are using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, Agents can begin calls from within the Microsoft Dynamics 365 application.
If an agent is engaged in a text chat or co-browse session with a customer, there may be times when it would be beneficial to escalate the engagement to a voice and video conversation. Enabling the agent and customer to open a voice and video window to see and talk to each other can enhance communication, and may help to resolve an issue more quickly.
