Support Talks- Say Hi! to TAC Connect Bot

-This Support Talk event is a special session of the “TAC Tools Explained Series”-

This event took place on Thursday 19th, November 2020 at 9:30hrs PDT 

This session provided an introduction to Cisco’s TAC Connect Bot tool, a personal assistant that helps with basic case management tasks. It focused on providing information about how you can interact with the bot in Support Case Manager and Webex Teams to get things done quickly, without having to call toll-free support numbers and wait in a queue. In addition, you learnt more about the self-service features it provides; such as how to get the status of a case, bug, or RMA, initiate connection to an engineer, requeue, schedule dispatch, raise severity, escalate, and request case closure.
