Released: May 18th, 2021

Features

Packages

Packages allow our customers to export individual resources like Flows or Lexicons in order to share those assets with other teams. Packages automatically contain their direct dependencies and can be shared as a portable zip archive once downloaded. Customers can also upload packages and get merge resolution steps displayed.

Chatwoot integration

Cognigy has integrated "Chatwoot" as an additional handover provider that can be used by our customers to connect their users with real agents. Chatwoot is an open-source solution and free to use.

Cognigy Functions

Cognigy Functions are a big leap forward when it comes to running asynchronous code in the background. Functions allow you to schedule long-running code (e.g. 10 minutes!) in the background. Functions can be triggered and started via our RESTful API or from within your Flows. Your code in Functions will be executed in a save containment and can inject results back into your user's conversational sessions. Please check our documentation for more info on Functions.

OpenID Connect

Cognigy.AI already supports SSO (Single Sign-On) through the usage of our SAML 2.0 integration. With this release, we have now added support for OpenID Connect. Customers can now select which type of strategy they want to use in order to implement their corporate SSO strategy.

Email notification Node

Customers can now use a "much simpler to configure" way to send email notifications. The new Flow Node will use the system-wide configured SMTP server for outgoing emails. The content of emails sent using this Node will be embedded into a template indicating the origin of the email. The template can be customized by or OEM customers.

Warnings for NLU issues

The product will now show warning notifications when the system detects issues in Intent-rules, Intent-Conditions as well as generic issues while executing NLU on user inputs. Warnings will only be generated and forwarded to our user interface when the Interaction Panel is used during testing.

Copy Agent ID

We have added the ability to copy the Agent ID to the context menu on the Index Dashboard in which you can select one of your Agents.

4.2.0

Released: April 14th, 2021

Features

Email Node improvements

We have added the ability to select well-known SMTP providers in our "send email" Flow-Node. This helps our customers to configure their target SMTP servers more easily when using one of these well-known services for sending emails. We have also added new functionality in the form of attachments as well as the ability to put contacts on CC.

Think Node enhancements

We have added the ability to "think" Intents within our Think Flow-Node. This option will exist next to the already existent "text" option. It helps developers to more easily trigger an Intent directly.

Analytics Steps for Flow-Nodes and Intents

One of our larger missions for 2021 is various analytics enhancements. Adding analytics steps is one of the first building blocks on this journey. It allows our customers to define analytics labels for Flow-Nodes and Intents. All of our Question-Nodes will automatically get those analytics labels assigned. The labels can be used to understand when customers drop off within a conversation. We have also enhanced our ODATA interface to expose those data points.

Contact Profile Explorer enhancements

We have added the ability to filter inactive Contact Profiles in the Contact Profile Explorer. This will help our customers to more easily search through their Contact Profiles while focusing only on the active ones.

  • The downloadable package of a Snapshot will now only be downloadable for a limited time

4.1.0

Released: December 23rd, 2020

Features

Cognigy Live Agent (lite)

Cognigy Live Agent (lite) is here! The Cognigy Live Agent replaces the old Cognigy Livechat in Cognigy.AI version 4. Live Agent comes as a more de-coupled product and will be extended in the future.

Quick NLU training

We have introduced a quicker way for you to train your Intents. If users do not utilize states and conditions in their Intents, they can now use the new quick training method in order to train their Intents way faster. Users can still decide whether they want to go with the slower training approach which will take states and conditions into consideration.

Indian languages

These release of Cognigy.AI introduces support for the following new languages:

  • Hindi
  • Bengali
  • Tamil

We are always happy to extend the capabilities of our product and would love to get feedback on the quality of the language support for these new languages.

WebchatWidget WCAG 2.0 Level A Compliance

We added full support for WCAG 2.0 Level A Compliance to our WebchatWidget. Release 2.24.0 of our WebchatWidget offers accessibility features we did not support, yet. We have also added the ability to specify the necessary alternative text for all sorts of rich-media elements our users can compose in the 'default' and 'webchat' Channels within our Say-Node editor.
