A C4C User can now communicate real time with another C4C user through Genband SAP RTC.  This is available for productive use since 16.02.


Following Use Cases supported –

  1. Launch – As a C4C user, I can click on on a tool-bar icon to open a real-time Genband RTC window

  3. Communicate – As a C4C user, I can select available user and initiate text chat, video call, and audio call in Genband RTC window

Setup –

  1. As a C4C Admin, I can automatically provision a Genband user. This happens automatically when user is assigned Genband workcenter view
  2. As a C4C Admin, I can provision two types of Genband Users – Basis and Advanced. Basic gets chat and presence. Advanced user get chat, presence, phone and video. 
  3. As a C4C Admin, I can review/accept user agreement terms. This is part of the configuration.

      Hello Bhargavi,

      You would have activate Real-Time Communication Work center. Under that you have 2 view which is "Advanced Communication" and "Presence and Chat". Hope this helps.

      Hello Bhargavi,

      You would have to enable the following in Scoping.

      Later you should see the WoC under Work center view and assignments.

      Hello Bhargavi,

      There wouldn't be any WoC. You wouldn't see any WoC. Hope you have accepted the user agreement under the Adminstrator(BETA) --> Security --> Real time communication.Go ahead and accept the agreement and then choose the country as North America.Once completed You can check the RTC icon on the right shelf where upon clicking it would open the RTC dialog box and you would have to download the Genband plugin and then you are all set to work on RTC as per the Blog.

      Regards,

      Swaroop

      Hello Kiran,

      Though all the settings are in place. When i click on the RTC i keep getting logon failed in the RTC window. Is there any specific Browser settings to have this worked?

      Dear Swaroop,

      reason is that the RTC is available in HTML and not if you launch it with Silverlight

      With Silverlight it shows this text but the user should avoid it
