USER ACCOUNTS AND USER DETAILS SYNCHRONIZATION
🤔 Why are details read-only? User details are read from your tenant's user directory. Changes are made by your local tenant administrator. Nimbus does not alter these fields to avoid conflicts.
🤔 How are new users added? After Service Provisioning Nimbus adds additional users and grants User Roles accordingly. This " MS Teams-based" User assignment type is the default for Nimbus "Advanced Routing" services. You may however add users manually e.g. to assign them in standalone services that use Skills and Responsibility-based routing without a dedicated Teams channel necessary. More on this topic can be found on Service types.
USER SYNCHRONICITY ON DELETED TEAMS
When a MS Teams "Teams" is removed manually - without prior Uninstallation of the related Nimbus service - the users are not shown within the Nimbus user administration list anymore. However, the team and its members are still shown within Service Administration until the Nimbus team is fully removed from Azure.
- Users may still be shown when part of at least one (still) operational service.
- Nimbus keeps a history of the team members (retrieved from MS teams channel) even after the channel was removed from the teams client. To the User / Service Administrator this will appear as a mismatch of user count.
Note that certain Nimbus Features described in the tabs below are tied to a license. You may not see all user options and configuration tabs until a corresponding license is applied to the user.
The following licenses are available:
|Enables Features (Tabs)
|Allows assignment of Skills and Responsibilities for this user to act as Service Agent (either in combination with existing MS-Teams services or standalone). Call distribution to Agents is done via Distribution Policies.
🔍 Also see Distribution Order.
|Grants access to Attendant Console features for that user, to be found within the Nimbus frontend main menu.
|Grants access to Interact features, allowing the user direct interaction with customers visiting via a Website or different Frontend.
|Grants access to Assistant, a standalone app that provides context and open Direct Call Templates during a service call.
✅ Related Requirement: Certain user Nimbus Features also require a service service with the corresponding license applied via Service Administration. For example: Only a Contact Center service can assign Agents manually and enact Distribution Policies.
Modalities are indivdual channels of communication and can be individually enabled or disabled for a user.
Related Steps / Preconditions
- Modalities draw from the license pool shown via License Tenant Settings and can be distributed to users in bulk via License Management.
- Each modality type is configured via individual Workflows. Note that a modality is not handled by a service unless enabled via Modality Service Settings with the corresponding workflow applied.
