Updates / Fixes
- We made the Live Calls Dashboard "Listen" button accessibility friendly.
- Fixed a greeting loop in the case of callback request and account not being able to establish an outbound call to that specific number.
Zendesk Guide + Gather
- Guide Professional customers will be able to grant light agents access to edit and publish articles using Management Permissions from June 2nd. See announcement.
- Unsubscribe links in email notifications have been updated to require a confirmation and thereby avoid email crawlers from accidentally unsubscribing the user.
- Fixed bug that made restricted articles translations in a non translated section, show up in search.
- Fixed a bug that meant that moving an article from a translated section to an untranslated section did not update the index and thus the articles translation in the untranslated section was still searchable.
- Fixed a string in search settings that was not localised and thus showed up everywhere unlocalised.
- Fixed a bug that made Google Analytics unusable for customers because the Google Analytics script was injected in the footer instead of the header.
- Fixed a bug in themes settings where setting section titles where not left aligned when line breaking
- Fixed a bug in the themes settings page where the Publish/Save button would say Save instead of Publish on Live themes first time you navigate there.
- The “Visible to” label in the article editor would wrongly show “Everyone” if a user segment had been deleted. This has been fixed to show the effective visibility of the article, namely “Managers only”.
- The Follow-button on the User Content Moderation page was wrongly reading and applying subscription changes from and to all brands. This has been fixed.

- Previously, the SLA Side Load only provided one Reply Time metric (once a First Reply Time was fulfilled, it was replaced with Next Reply Time). We have made changes, rolling out this week, that will ensure both First Reply Time and Next Reply Time are both present in the response where relevant.
