Conversational channel user roles


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Pega Platform users with different roles create, train, and build Pega Intelligent Virtual Assistant™ (IVA) and Pega Email Bot™, as well as triage cases. For example, a channel developer creates an Email channel and builds its behavior, by training the text analytics model to better detect the correct topics, language, sentiment, and entities. Once the email bot is in a production environment, a customer service representative (CSR) then triages the cases so that customer emails are promptly and correctly addressed.
