How to use Comm100 Agent Assist

Comm100 Agent Assist is an AI-powered virtual assistant that helps your agents respond to customer queries more quickly, more accurately and more confidently than ever before. This article will explain how to set up and start using Agent Assist:

How to Enable Agent Assist

1. Log in to your Comm100 account. Navigate to the Bot module and Enable Agent Assist: Agent Assist > General Settings


2. Select the Language for Agent Assist to provide answers in.


3. Choose the Suggestion Sources you want Agent Assist to provide answers from.

How Agent Assist Works

Answer suggestions will appear in the Agent Console
When a question is asked, Agent Assist will give agents suggestions based on matching results from your Comm100 Knowledge Base Articles, Canned Messages and Chatbot Intents. Agents can preview the answers by hovering over the suggestions. Single click on the suggested canned messages and knowledge base articles to populate the typing field with the response. Double click on suggestions to send the answers out instantly.


If visitors send multiple messages in a row, you can pick which message you want Agent Assist to show suggestions for. Simply hover over the question you want responses for and click the Show Agent Assist Suggestions option.


Hovering over visitor questions also allows Agents to send the question to the Agent Assist Learning if they feel that this question needs a help resource created for it, or existing help resources are insufficient.

Adding Synonyms for different keywords is how you help Agent Assist recognize different words/phrases with the same meaning. One keyword can have multiple synonyms. Add as many as possible to ensure Agent assist gets the correct meaning when a question is asked.


Agent Assist Learning
All questions flagged by Agents end up in the Learning section. Here Users can use these questions to guide the creation of new Knowledge Base Articles, Canned Messages or Chatbot Intents. If a question already has a help resource that should be used in response, Users can use the Learning section to associate that question with that resource so that Agents will receive it as a suggestion the next time a visitor asks the same question.

How to add visitor questions to existing help resources


You can add/send questions to the learning portal by clicking the  icon (Add the question to Agent Assist Learning) next to a question while chatting in the Agent Console. If a question is not recognized by the Agent assist it will be added to Learning automatically after the chat ends.


You can add new contents (KB, Canned Message and Bot Intents) for the visitor questions in the Learning portal by Clicking the  icon under the Operation column.


Similarly, you can add a question to the list of Similar Questions for a help resource by clicking the Add as Similar Questions button under the Operation column. This will ensure that the correct resource is suggested when visitors ask this question in the future.


You also have the option to add a question to the Similar Questions field in the Canned message or KB article automatically if an Agent uses a suggestion provided by the Agent Assist, but the question does not match any of the existing questions within the similar questions field. To use this, simply enable the feature within the control panel. See below:
