Message Explorer


The Message Explorer allows you to search for specific customer messages or Virtual Agent messages in your current Virtual Agent conversation. The task characteristic of the Insights Message Explorer is that you can see what message came before the selected message and what came after this message. As a result, you can better understand customers' reactions, for example how often did customers react in the same way or in a specific way and what are the reasons for that.

Global filter options

Using the global filter options you can define the search criteria to find the intended messages you want to evaluate (see details here: Global Filter).

Local filter options

  • You can search for specific customer messages by entering a key phrase in the Search field (for example "appointment").

  • You can select one or more message sources like Virtual Agent Messages, User Messages, or Agent Messages by local filter options in the top right. When you want to search only for Virtual Agent-specific messages click on the filter option Virtual Agent Messages and leave the other options not selected.

  • You can select one or more flows to show only messages that were generated during the selected flow passing.

Using the "Negate " slider bar "all but the selected" filter options will be analyzed.

Message research

  • Click on a specific message and the Message Explorer will display this message exclusive in the center column, and the prior conversation is added in the left column and the following conversation is added in the right column of the Message Explorer.

Use the scrolling bars to go through both message columns, titled "Prior" and "Following".

You can navigate also through the conversation when you click step by step on any single message in the "Prior" or the "Following" column. The selected message moves every time in the center column as "Current message" and you can see which message came prior (left column) and which message followed (right column).

The numbers displayed below a message indicate how often this message has occurred in a selected timeframe.

To go back to the filtered messages again click on the "X" icon in the column title labeled with "Current message".
