In read-only mode, fields in the customer record with no value are now suppressed. Previously, these fields displayed a value of None. All fields are visible in edit mode.
In read-only mode, if the text in a field exceeds the width of the field, the text now wraps instead of truncating.
Warning When Record or Activity Modified Externally
November 22, 2016
If an activity or customer record is modified externally (for example, by another agent), the Customer Context gadget displays a warning when you attempt to save the customer record. You can then choose to either load the changes or overwrite them.
Gadget Notification Enhancements
November 21, 2016
The way the Customer Context gadget displays incoming activity has changed. Previously, the gadget placed focus on the new customer. Now, the gadget displays a notification for incoming activity. The gadget also displays a notification counter.
If there is one incoming activity, you can click Switch to switch to the customer record associated with the new activity. If there are more than one incoming activities, you can click View to open the side panel (if it is collapsed). Customer records associated with the incoming activities appear in the side panel.
November 11, 2016

You can now refresh the Customer Context gadget when an initialization or network error occurs.
Side Panel Enhancement
October 11, 2016
The side panel of the Customer Context gadget now retains its state when collapsed and recalls its state when expanded. For example, search for a customer and then collapse the side panel. When the side panel is reopened, the panel displays the search tab with the original search results.
New Search Feature
September 21, 2016
The Context Service search capability has been enhanced to enable granular searching from the Context Service Java SDK. This allows you to search data by specific fields. This change does not affect data created after September 21, 2016. However, data created before September 21, 2016 will no longer be searchable until you migrate your data to be compatible with the new data format.
To ensure that data created before September 21, 2016 is searchable, download and use the data migration tool to migrate your data to the new format. Download and extract the zip file and refer to readme.pdf included in the download for further instructions.
With this new capability, Context Service Search now enforces the key when you search for a key:value pair. For example, you have two users, one with the first name Thomas and a second with the last name Thomas. Search would return values for both keys. Now, search is granular and searching for first_name:Thomas you gets only the records where just the first_name is Thomas. To learn more about Context Service search, see the Context Service SDK Guide.
