Article summary


Discontinuing old PDF Template builder for creating Templates

Starting with this release, Lightico users will no longer be able to create new PDF Templates in the old PDF builder. Existing PDF Templates that were created in the old builder can still be edited in the old builder.

For more information see Deprecation notice - old PDF Template builder.

New features

This release includes the following new feature:

Prevent using text message channel

If you need to avoid sending text messages because of regulations, this release offers a new system/team setting (under Session > Preferences) to prevent all text messages from being sent to your customer. When text messages are disabled, an agent will not see the option to send the session invitation by text message. Your customer will also not be able to assign or reassign documents via text message.

For more information, see General session preferences.

API Features

Set eVault hub for External Documents

Integrating a document vaulting service with Lightico enables you to automatically store an authoritative copy of documents completed in a session. With this release, we’ve added a parameter to the Upload External Document (v28.1) endpoint for defining an eVault service for storing this document after it is completed in a session.

For more information, see the Upload External Document (v28.1) endpoint in the Lightico Developer Center.


Customer completion notifications without attachments

With this release you have more control over notifications sent when a customer completes a Workflow or PDF. You can still choose whether to send email notifications to the agent or a custom email. In addition to that, we’ve added the flexibility to choose whether to attach the completed documents to the email. This lets you notify about the Workflow's status while not sharing the actual document.

Note that these system/team settings have been added to the Session > Document handling section and the section name has changed from Send completed documents to to Notify on customer completion.

For more information, see Document handling.

More options for customizing file names

In this release we’ve added the following variables for customizing the internal file naming convention for PDF Templates, External Documents and Dynamic Documents. The last two options were also added to uploaded Document Request file names:

  • #DOCUMENT_CODE# – defined by the BC for each document:

    • For PDF Templates and overlays in the settings tab

    • For Dynamic Documents from the menu in the upper right corner

  • #PAGE_COUNT# – shows how many pages are in a document

  • #UNIQUE_24CHARS# – Lightico generates a unique 24-character string when the file is completed

For more information, see Document handling.
