    We're currently working on a new deployment of the SocialMiner 9.0.1, coupled with UCCX 9.0.2, to implement customer chat support. We have a working demo up and running, but we've noticed that the agent name that is displayed to the customer is the AD username of the agent. Is there a setting to change it so that the agent's first name only is displayed instead of their AD username (first initial+last name)?

    Hi Kevin,
    In standalone SocialMiner, you can change agent chat alias in Settings on SocialMiner Home tab. But it only applies to a standalone SocialMiner.
    If CCX integration, then you need to ask CCX team on how it can be configured and used.
    As far as I know, if the customer wants to change agent alias, then it is CCX issue and it is possible that CCX may already have a feature request for that.
    For the customer’s name, the “author” field from the chat-form is used and it can be modified by modifying the actual chat-form.

    Please redirect your question to CCE team.
    Thank you
    Tanya

    I have the exact same problem and did not find anz solution to this. The Customer sees the internal LDAP usernames which is a big security risk and we cannot use the chat feature at all. This topic is marked as "resolved", does anyone know how this was fixed?

    thanks very much
    Fabian

    Hi Fabian,

    I opened several TAC cases and posted on the chat and CCX forums seeking answers. So far nobody has offered me any solutions. Our project is on hold at this point as well due to the privacy and security risks. Not including an Alias feature is a massive oversight on the part of the developers. I doubt anyone will be able to use this product in a real enterprise contact center until this is resolved.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    This is a feature gap between the two platforms and we knew this when we released 9.0. This is currently a roadmap item that will be evaluated by the SocialMiner and CCX teams to determine when we can implement the agent alias information within CCX chat.  Once we come up with a solution and know how big/small the story(s) are we then know which release this feature can go in. If i have to ake a guess right now it will be after 11.0 release sometime.

    Thanks,

    Emmanuel

    Hi Kevin,
    We have faced with the same trouble. Our TAC case was closed with two enhancement request opened. But for now this "integration" seems absolutely useless.

    I appreciate the feedback. I sure hope it's coming in the 10.X versions instead of somewhere in the 11.X. If it's really over a year out from being released we'll probably be forced to to pick a different solution.

    Thanks,

    I would also agree the integration with CCX was not well thought out.  This agent alias along with the limited web based integration into CCX looks like a complete after thought.  I have inquired about other enhancements and it woudl seem that not much is going on development wise as most responses are sometime after version 10.  Version 10 of which product is usually my follow-up question.
