Chatbot text starts scroll at top of answer

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.8

In order to present an improved interface for customers interfacing with chatbots, the code has been updated so that the recipient's chat scroll will remain at the top of an answer that would scroll off the screen.

Email Discussion Thread retains Formatting

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

CSS styles were not being retained in the discussion thread when replying to InboundCorrespondence cases. This was traced to a missing value in Param.latestReply activity pzCreateExternalPostFromMail, and has been resolved by setting an initial plain text value to the param.latestReply before it is set with the HTML value. This prevents having a blank parameter value if the incoming HTML value is empty.

Improved handling for attachments not using UTF-8 encoding

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

When an email was received that used a charset encoding other than UTF-8, special characters in the HTML body were not displayed and instead the replacement character was shown. To resolve this, the system will read the encoding from the email rather than use the meta tag, and will add the attachment's HTML encoding information in Data-WorkAttach-File so that the same can be used to process and display the original HTML properly.

Performance improvements for opening cases with embedded images

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

Opening cases containing email interactions was taking an excessive amount of time. This was traced to the use of embedded images, icons, etc, in the message body and signature, and was caused by the pyGetAttachmentsbyCID activity running multiple times due to discussion threads that were duplicated over and over. In some cases, more than 360 calls to the database were seen. This has been resolved by shifting some case opening processes to executing when the listener thread gets the mail, and storing the results in a .pynote property, and a URL will be used to get images instead of embedding them directly to the HTML. If preferred, this can be reverted to the previous behavior by changing the when rule (pyUseCachedHtmlForDisplay) to false.

Inline images retrieved for deferred-load email

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7.1

When emails were defer-loaded, inline images with code entered into the non-cache section in pyExtractHtmlFromAttachment were not being displayed. This has been resolved by passing the current page parameter to pyExtractHTMLFromAttachment to convey the pyID.

INC-200148 · Issue 693148

Added JSoup handling for older Microsoft Outlook versions

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7.1

Logging indicated that some emails were generating the error "pyextractlatestreplyfromhtml is resulting in java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Object must not be null." This occurred when using an older version of Microsoft Outlook, and has been resolved by adding a check before removing the JSoup doc object.

Added API for Pega Call Team websocket reconnect

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7.1

When a call came in, the operator was not able to pick it up due to the popup only containing a reconnect section. This has been resolved by adding the disconnectAndReconnect API which will be used by Pega Call Team if the websocket reconnect limit exceeds 5.

INC-203463 · Issue 694163

Added deferred loading for email cases

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7.1

When there were a significant number of email interactions on an email case, delays were seen when loading the case in the UI. Investigation traced this to a high number of database calls along with the BLOBs also being open. To improve performance, the new rule pyDeferLoadEmails has been added which toggles the UI and loads emails faster. In addition, the button label has been modified to read "View all emails" in place of "Show all" while defer load is enabled.
