Sending Instant Messages from Nextiva Unity

Nextiva Unity is releasing a new version (8.6.5) of the desktop application, containing new features and multiple bug fixes. All unity users must restart Nextiva Unity before 09/05 to automatically update to the new version. If the update fails to apply automatically after restarting Nextiva Unity, click here.

Send and receive instant messages between any Nextiva Unity User (Reception, Agent, or Supervisor). Users can send messages from the Personal Wallboard, Contacts tab, Agent Activity tab, and the Tools menu. Instant messages can only be sent to other Nextiva Unity Users. If the contact is not a Nextiva Unity User, the instant message option will not be displayed. Messages sent to offline Users will be delivered once the recipient opens Unity.
