@keseykid - Good point. Yes, only web-enabled channels using custom canvases can escalate seamlessly to a human agent. I'll make sure we can update product documentation to reflect this more clearly.
I'm sorry you're having issues while attempting to hand-off to a live agent. My understanding is that you are attempting to hand-off to a live agent using Teams. You will not be able to use the out-of-box test canvas to hand-off to live agent on Teams. The "red box" you see is an error informing you that hand-off was indeed triggered, but you will need to do extra work to seamlessly and contextually hand-off to a live agent. We have some public documentation forthcoming on this, but nothing now.
If you're looking to write custom code to achieve your goals, I can provide steps you can perform today. If you're looking to see how hand-off works end-to-end, my recommendation would be to Omnichannel as it will be far quicker. Please let me know what your goal is and I can respond appropriately.
@JoeGill - You may have figured this out already, but I'll say it anyway for the sake of others that may be experiencing this. Once you add the new "Transfer to agent" node, you will need to write custom code (in your chat canvas) to hand-off the chat to live agents. For this reason, even after you configure Omnichannel, you will need to use Omnichannel's chat widget to test the bot end-to-end.
Hope that helps.
Sorry I did not figure it out. Wish I was that clever 😀
If you have any info you could send on that would be great. I am looking at Omni channel at the moment but I would like to have a go handing over to a custom hand also
Thanks a mill
I am looking forward as well to the steps to escalate to other products other than omni channel for the sake of curiosity. Is it possible to update the details in the same thread?
🙂 You're being modest. Here's public documentation explaining what you need to do to setup your queues, routing rules to escalate to agents using Omnichannel.
Here's a quick summary of things I did to make this work,
Let me know how I can help.
Thanks for this @pawan-msft. I am also hoping to get direction on how do we escalate to products such as Teams (something other than Omnichannel EH). Do we have any guidelines or steps for this?
