I have got a Digital Messaging Server (DMS) with Genesys Hub configured for WhatsApp and the interactions are transferred to agent. Now I need to add Welcome greeting with language selection and menu services in WhatsApp before it gets transferred to Agent.
I am trying to figure on how do we build a flow for WhatsApp so that customers can choose the menu services before they get transferred to an agent with whatsappsession channel ready in WDE.
I have gone through all the documents available and there is no clarity in it which explains the process to be followed. There are bits and pieces of information in Genesys Intelligent Automation WebIVR, bot gateway server etc. However, the requirement to show a welcome message with a language selection following which a set of menus and submenus to be selected before the interaction gets connected with an agent seems to be simple and straight. We are also exploring if we can build such a simple flow using Composer workflow for whatsapp. Or is Composer limited to voice interactions only. There are multiple questions going around.
If any of you can throw some insights into this to discuss as a community would be good.
When it comes to Whatsapp, theoretically it should work as a chat session. But when using GIA application with DMS, are you talking about the BGS fish-cbp.jar?
When building an application in GIA, we choose the Visual Persona in the WebIVR application flow, the DTMF options does not appear. So this brings the ambiguity as to whether this is a right approach or not. Because when choosing Voice Persona, the DTMF menu options appear and we can set values to it. The GIA docs say that the WebIVR application is used in web applications or mobile applications. It doesn't explicitly mention about Whatsapp, so its always the guess time when reading Genesys Docs.
Do let me know on your thoughts.
Maybe you can have a BotGateway Server with a custom driver written in Java to achieve it. The driver will keep your session active to collect the inputs from the customer then you can send the menu contents by fetching them from standard responses.
We are thinking this approach also to develop some custom driver for BGS. However, as of now trying out some out of the box options.
I tried the chat persona and tried it out using a chat widget. Atleast the initial message appears. But in a chat persona, i don't find a way to setup menu options or buttons which can be either selected or typed by the customer.
To see these features, you have to enable Rich Media as described in the following link:

Yes i did go through this document and the options provided. I was able to set the menu options as buttons. However, i am still figuring out how to set the options to detect a text/DTMF. Instead of buttons, the customer should be able to write '1' or '2' for the particular option.
