The CRM data model includes Chat Transcript Storage in Dynamics 365. This feature allows Chat Transcripts to be stored against its Chat Activity within your CRM. A built-in view displays the Chat Transcript, from which you can query the data and establish insights into the nature of the conversations, for sentiment analysis as an example.
- CRM Chat Transcript Storage is not enabled by default; Contact Support to enable it for your organization. It is available if you are on version 3.12.0 or higher.
- The Transcript for a Chat is populated only when a Chat has ended, and it may take up to 5 minutes to be available.
- You can use the Chat Transcript API to access transcripts stored within Live Assist.
- Storing transcripts in Microsoft Dynamics may incur additional storage costs. Speak to your Microsoft Sales Representative.
Live Assist adds the following data model to your Microsoft Dynamics instance. You can use this to create customizations or processes to interrogate the stored Chat Transcript data.
