Overview of the Email Working Area
When you have an active email interaction selected for processing in the Active Communications List, the entire Context Information Area of your Agent Desktop application will be dedicated to processing of that email. Your email working area is divided into three main parts: Reading Pane, Reply Editor, and Notes Editor.
- The Reading Pane displays the content of the current email that you need to process. The number of the case that this email is part of is displayed above. The Reading Pane can also show you the history of all previous communications related to this case.
- The Reply Editor is used to compose a reply to the message displayed in the Reading Pane. This area is also used to look for an article in the Knowledge Base that can be used as a template for your email, and to view the notes related to the current email thread.
- The Notes Editor is used to enter some internal comments regarding the email interaction you are working on that may be of help to other agents who may be working on this case in the future. When you use the Reply Editor to look for a Knowledge Article, the Notes Editor will display the content of the articles that you select for preview.
Note: When you look for cases, the Context Information Area will look different. For more information, see section How to Send a Follow-up Email.
