Teams Contact Center, TouchPoint Software Upgrades

This article is for users (and IT Pros supporting users) of the Contact Center. This article describes the software upgrade process for the Contact Center software, TouchPoint.


Any time the administrators install Contact Center specific patches on the servers, users of the Contact Center will be prompted to upgrade their version of the client-side software, TouchPoint. The prompt to upgrade is staggered by the servers at random intervals for users. This means you may not receive a prompt to upgrade at the same time another user does. Server patching will always be posted on the status website which can be accessed from this link . While administrators require a larger window to complete the patching, disruptions to users do not occur for the entire maintenance window. Disruptions are generally brief in nature while servers fail over.


    1. You will see a message stating, "A new version is available!" and an Upgrade button after you start TouchPoint. Please click Upgrade.
