|My Nimbus App won't load||Technical Issues|
Nimbus runs on Azure Cloud services. On https://status.luware.cloud we inform our customers about maintenance and (un)expected system outages.
When your Nimbus remains unrepsonsive for several minutes but other Teams applications work normally, check https://status.luware.cloud first. Contact Luware Support if the problem persists.
|My Nimbus App loads but behaves unexpectedly in some areas||Technical Issues|
|Incoming calls are sometimes shown with a cryptic ID instead of the Nimbus service name|
This is a Microsoft / Teams issue that we unfortunately cannot resolve on our end.
Nimbus does send the Service name to establish the call, but it's not always resolved correctly.
|When putting a customer on hold, two waiting music tracks are played on top.|
Technical Issue / Configuration
KNOWN ISSUE Two on-hold (wait) music tracks played simultaneously. When using the MS Teams-native "On-Hold" button during a Service call, the caller will hear both the Service-workflow defined playlist and the MS-Teams default wait music simultaneously.
Workarounds and Analysis...
Analysis: Currently Nimbus has no way to detect if the MS-Teams music is enabled on the service tenant. This issue appeared due to a recent change by Microsoft. We continue to monitor the situation, but currently do not have a direct option to fix this.

|Why does Nimbus need external access and guest users?|
There are two means of access that allow Nimbus to operate:
Nimbus uses these extended permissions to enable presence-based features, primarily for targeted call distribution and updating availability in the frontend UI.
If you want to keep using "Presence Privacy Mode" on your Tenant you need these guest account. Otherwise Nimbus cannot route anything. Learn more on Use Case - Tracking extended user presence via Azure guest accounts.
You do not need both, but we recommend it for best performance of call distribution in Nimbus. The guest accounts are used as primary source and - in case of a problem - the normal Teams Federation acts as a fallback.
|What does the service provisioning script do?|
More information is provided at Provisioning via Microsoft PowerShell.
|Do you also support runbook to automate provisioning?|
Runbook is currently not working and not supported due to a technical blocker on Microsoft side. Luware will continue to monitor the situation and communicate any news in the Release Notes as the circumstances change.
|Even with my native language in the UI selected, |
some translations seem to remain in English
We permanently update Nimbus with new features, which could result in some translation keys (individual UI elements) being left in base English initially.
|Can we use SIP phones with Nimbus?|
Nimbus uses the Teams bot for in- and outcoming calls. You can use SIP phones in Teams and thus together with Nimbus and Attendant Console.
More about the SIP Phone support in Teams can be found here: here Plan SIP Gateway - Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs and here Configure SIP Gateway - Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs
Usage of SIP Gateways requires configuration on your organization's firewall, e.g. to open ports and bypass of the proxy for Teams traffic.

|Do you guarantee SLA's?|
SLA's are defined in the Luware Cloud Service Description, available in our Documents section.
You can also check service uptime via https://status.luware.cloud/
|Where can I find abandoned calls?|
"Abandoned" is often interpreted in a differentiated way. In Nimbus there are different outcomes for calls: Nimbus Reporting Model.
Based on this, a customer can pick the necessary outcomes that constitute "abandoned" for him. The sum of the calls in these outcomes represents the abandoned calls.
|Where can I find the SLA configuration value for the service?|
Certain SLA values can be changed via General Service Settings.
|Where can I find the number of transfer attempts?|
We currently do not track transfer attempts in the reporting. In Nimbus, a transfer is always considered as successful.
If a transfer comes back then the call is not considered transferred and thus will have a different outcome.
|At what stage can a call recording be started?|
When a call is handled by an Agent who is a “recorded user” then it can be recorded for this Agent as soon as they accept the call.
|When does recording end for a call?|
A recording terminates when:
|Has an Attendant Console operator have the option to manually record calls?|
Yes, but not inside Nimbus. Only from the Recording app.
