Contact Center App Email-in-Case Support

On August 31, 2023, we updated our 8x8 Contact Center Integration for Microsoft Dynamics to v0.3.7, which provides support for new Email in External CRM functionality:

  • Agents can now receive, reply to, and create new emails within the Contact Center App.
  • All email interactions are handled through the Contact Center App, and are stored into Microsoft Dynamics cases.
  • Each leg of an email "chain" or conversation sent to or from the Contact Center App will automatically be stored in its appropriate case.
  • A new email chain will open a new case, to which all related email replies and responses will be added.

Requirements for Email in External CRM

To use this feature, the following are required:

  • 8x8 Integration for Microsoft Dynamics v0.3.7: This must either be newly installed, or must be updated from a previous version if the integration is already installed.
  • The latest version of the Contact Center App interface, which is available when you install integration v0.3.7.
  • A catalog of the changes that you'll see in the improved interface over previous versions are described in this article.
  • Installation/update instructions are detailed in our Administrator's Guide.
  • Agent usage instructions are detailed in our User's Guide.
