Searching for CRM records

The process for matching CRM records is radically improved.

Before the user answers an offered interaction, the 8x8 integration will indicate that it is searching for CRM records.

If the user answers an offered interaction before the CRM search has been completed, the user interface will indicate that a record search is being performed.


The interface will display different visual cues for scenarios where there are no matching records, a single exact match, and multiple matches. This includes the number of matching records found.
