Blocklists

The Webex Engage application checks all the chat messages and filters the blocked words before sending them to the customers. The incoming messages are verified for these words and replaced with an asterisk (*) before sending it to the agents. Here, you can also provide the privilege of unmasking blocked words to the agents.

You can perform the following actions on the Blocklists screen:

  • Configure the blocked words that must be filtered out of the messages or search for pre-configured blocked words.
  • Configure the Email IDs of the recipients for whom a report will be sent if blocked words are found in the outbound messages that the agent tries to send to the customer.
    If the message typed by the agent contains any of the blocked words, a warning is shown, and the message is not sent until that word is removed.

To navigate to blocklists, go to Agent Console > Settings > Manage > Blocklists.
