Set up a backup workflow when Fin AI Agent reaches a resolution limit

Julia avatar
Shared by Julia • July 12, 2024

We've introduced a new Workflow action called “Resolution limit reached” that can be used to trigger a backup workflow once your Fin AI Agent usage limit has been reached. There are two ways to set this up:

Use case 1: Workflow branching

Create a workflow branch with the “Let Fin answer” step as one branch path, and the new “Resolution limit reached” action as the other path.

Use case 2: Audience targeting

Use the new action in the Audience panel. This workflow will trigger once the usage limit has been reached.

Note: this is available to customers with access to the Workflows product.

Improved email automation targeting with new email predicates

Julia avatar
Shared by Julia • June 28, 2024

We have introduced new Email predicates so that you can better target your email automations:

  • Email Recipient: use this predicate if you want to target any email address(es) users add to the "To" or "Cc" fields
  • Email To: for targeting email addresses users add only to the “To” field
  • Email Cc: for targeting email addresses users add only to the “Cc” field

With this, you can:

  • Define the audience you want to target for your automation to ensure that your automations only trigger in the intended scenarios.
  • Create branches within Workflows to trigger conditional logic

Here are some examples of how you can use this:

1. Ensure Fin only replies when your support team has been emailed directly, and not just Cc’d

2. When your support team has been cc’d to an Email, you can enable Fin to reply to these emails by using Email Cc in audience targeting; you can instruct Fin to wait for some time before replying to give your teammates a chance to reply first.

3. You can also use these predicates as branches within a workflow. In this example, Fin replies immediately if the support email address is present in the To field, but waits for one hour before replying if the address is only in Cc.

Shared by Mark • June 12, 2024

As teammates now work alongside Fin AI Agent and Chatbots, measuring customer satisfaction across all forms of support is increasingly important.

With this update, you can collect and report on CSAT ratings for your Chatbots (Workflows), just as you can for your teammates and Fin AI Agent.

Collecting CSAT ratings for Chatbots will give you a comprehensive view of customer satisfaction, enabling you to track changes over time and pinpoint areas for improvement.

Gather more information with Fin AI Agent before handing the conversation over to a teammate

Shared by Julia • June 12, 2024

With Fin AI Agent, you are now able to choose to collect more information when a customer asks to speak to the team.

When collecting more information Fin may also provide an additional answer—increasing the likelihood of a self-serve resolution. The extra information will also provide more context when the conversation is handed off to a teammate—improving agent efficiency and effectiveness.

Insider knowledge 🔍 Before launch we tested this feature extensively—observing an increase in answer rate, confirmed resolutions, and CSAT.

Improved Custom Answers ⭐️

Julia avatar
Shared by Julia • June 07, 2024

We have made two new improvements to Custom Answers.

We have introduced a new answer ending type to Custom Answers — “End answer”, which allows you to simply end the Custom Answer, rather than passing the conversation to a teammate, creating a ticket or ending the conversation.

With this, you can:

  • Seamlessly transition from a Custom Answer to an AI Answer (or another Custom Answer) if your customer has another question
  • Add a reusable bot to the end Custom Answer, without having to use one of the existing Custom Answer ending options

Custom Answers are a great way of guiding your customers through troubleshooting. With this new improvement, you can enable Fin to do more complex troubleshooting for specific topics or issues.

We have also improved the matching system behind Custom Answers, meaning that Custom Answers only get triggered when needed. This has improved the precision of Custom Answers whilst increasing Fin’s AI Answer rate, resulting in a proved increase in the overall Resolution Rate for all customers using Custom Answers as a standalone or alongside AI Answers.
