Attention Gladly Administrators: Entry Points UI Enhancement 

A simpler and easier way to manage Entry Point configurations is available in Production this week. Watch the video below to help you get familiar with the updated Entry Points UI/UX.

Check out additional help materials below you can review to learn about Entry Points.


New ‘Text-Matching’ Condition: Words

A new way to do text-matching in Rules and People Match is available in Production this week! Words will allow Administrators to capture whole words without resorting to RegEx, which requires more technical knowledge to implement and master. For example, ask is contained in basketball and task but sometimes, you may only want a Rule or Boost to fire if the Customer says can I ask you something? and not I like basketballWords can certainly help with similar use cases.


New Instagram Settings

The new Instagram Messaging Settings option will allow you to control when direct messages and Story mentions appear in the Conversation Timeline. This also means you’ll no longer have to contact Gladly Support to change these settings.

The two new settings available this week are:

Show direct messages initiated by all non-Gladly users in the conversation feed

  • Aptly known as the Echo feature, this allows you to expose direct message replies sent by someone in your team that's not a Gladly user in the Conversation Timeline.

Show all Instagram Story mentions in the conversation feed

  • If activated, @mentions of your company Instagram account from a Customer’s public Instagram account create a Conversation in Gladly, allowing you the opportunity to engage with your Customers. Do keep in mind that activating this feature can potentially increase the number of Conversations in Gladly.


New Metric for Insight Builder

We added Contact Fulfilled Per Active Hour metric to the Contact Metrics dataset.


Insight Builder Dashboard Filter Placement

For added flexibility on the dashboard UX, Analysts can now choose to have dashboard filters non-analyst users see appear either on the top side or right side of a dashboard.


Gladly + RedRoute: Connecting to Breakthrough Voice AI Technology so Organizations Can Deliver Great Customer Experiences Affordably

With the RedRoute integration, RedRoute calls will be added to the lifelong Conversation within Gladly, giving Support Heroes a fuller context. Additionally, Tasks will be automatically created in Gladly when follow-up by an Agent is required. Finally, Support Heroes will be able to reduce the back and forth with Customers by accessing written transcriptions of voicemails directly within the Task in Gladly.


What's Coming

Export CSV List of Users

The upcoming user Export feature will allow you to download a CSV of your user data so you can edit multiple users’ data without needing to edit each user via the UI. This means you’ll no longer have to create a separate CSV file. Once updated, use the Import feature to upload (in bulk) your updated CSV. Do keep in mind that the upload overwrites all existing user data.


Two New Reports Dashboards

The highly anticipated out-of-the-box reporting dashboards are coming soon! These dashboards will provide performance glimpses of the most commonly used reports and display Key Performance Indicators (KPI) metrics in Gladly.

The two OOTB dashboards coming are Daily Trends and Coaching Dashboard.

Hide ‘Decline’ Option From Voice Notification Banner

Prevent Agents from declining calls routed to them by hiding the Decline option from the incoming call notification banner.

hide decline decline button on call banner

In practice, Agents should go unavailable for Voice if they are for some reason unable to answer calls reducing the need to decline or ignore being routed to them. Note that the length of time a call is offered to an Agent before it's routed to another Agent is typically around 15 seconds, but this can be adjusted by contacting Gladly Support.


‘Upload CSV’ Button Renamed to ‘Import’ in Users Settings Page

Used to upload user information in bulk via CSV, the Upload CSV button has been renamed to Import. To complement this update, an Export feature will soon be introduced, allowing you to export a CSV of all user data.


Refreshed Color Scheme for Gladly Reports

An improved color scheme across all OOTB Reports is available to enjoy this week. This update is all cosmetic and does not affect reporting data.


Gladly + Recharge: Enrich Customer Profiles with Subscription Information

With the Recharge integration, Support Heroes can now view Customer subscription and product details to help answer any questions that Customers may have regarding their subscription without having to leave Gladly.


The Gladly and Thankful Chat Integration Just Got An Upgrade

Check out the latest updates to Thankful’s integration with Gladly.

Upgrade #1: Conversations in Waiting

  • Say goodbye to automatic Agent assignment when a chat request waits for a Customer's response. With our improved integration, Thankful will either close the chat Conversation or pass it to Gladly for Agent follow-up. This eliminates manual work, empowering Agents to focus on higher-quality tasks.

Upgrade #2: Race to Assignment

  • When a chat request comes through Gladly, Thankful’s AI Agent will engage first before routing it to an Agent. This reduces the number of repetitive chat Contacts being routed to Agents, improving productivity and helping to scale your support team faster.

UI/UX may change
