Configuring how the email bot handles a reply to forwarded emails

Suggest edit Updated on September 7, 2021

By defining additional processing in an activity, you can customize how Pega Email Bot handles a reply received from a third-party stakeholder of a forwarded email, to more closely fit your needs and requirements. As a result, the system becomes more robust and responsive to the business processes that you define for your application.

For example, you can configure your email bot to always send a copy of a received reply to a quality assurance assistant for further review.

To change how the email bot handles replies to forwarded emails, you override the pyResponseToForwardExtension activity rule for the Work-Channel-Triage class.
