See Cora SeQuence 8.8.1 Release Notes for details.
This Cora OpsManager release comes loaded with new features that enhance the functionality, and ease the usability of the product.
Integration with Artificial Intelligence
Save time and increase case indexing efficiency. Cora OpsManager now includes artificial intelligence capabilities to help you classify the cases and index the requests. The system analyzes the content of request emails, and recommends if a case should be created, or if the request should be rejected. Based on the email content, the new mechanism also recommends configuration sets for the specific cases.
For feature activation, contact your account manager. The activation requires approval and involves additional costs.
Currently, this new feature is available for cloud deployments only, however to use this feature on premises, contact your account manager.
New menus under Ops Manager Admin
New menus for power users, to simplify product settings. Two new menus are introduced under the Ops Manager Admin in Cora OpsManager.
- General Settings
- Label Settings
With these menus, Power users can bring some of the product customizations under configuration, and ease their efforts on product settings.
General Settings menu
In this General Settings menu, power users can make the general settings related to Cora OpsManager. They can set how cases are assigned to operators, make QC stage settings, set the number of days for which a case will stay in Pending Closure, add new case priorities, and set if country field is enabled on the case details page.
For details, see the Modify General Settings in Cora OpsManager article.
Label Settings menu
In this Label Settings menu, power users can edit existing labels for Case Actions and Case Status as per requirement. The modified case actions and statuses are then visible on the case details page.
The labels for Case Actions and Case Status support translation to Spanish and Portuguese. These translations can also be modified in this menu.
For details, see the Modify Case Action and Status Labels in Cora OpsManager article.
QC Settings tab on Configuration Sets page
Create QC forms and make QC settings on Configuration Sets page. We have introduced a QC Settings tab on the Configuration Sets page in Cora OpsManager.
On this tab, power users can configure the QC settings required for a case, without modifying the lookup tables on the Administration console.
The available settings are:
- % Cases to Sample: Percentage of cases that will be sent to QC.
- % Accuracy to Enable Pass: Minimum accuracy percentage required to pass the QC stage.
- QC Questions: Questions that will be part of the QC form.
Click Insert to save the question.
The QC form created here is visible on the QC Parameters tab of case details page.
This comment automatically gets added on the QC pop-up window as the QC auditor clicks fail or pass.
For details, see the Add Configuration Set Properties article.

We have improved on the performance of Cora OpsManager by reducing the main case page load time.
