Action Codes enable agents to report the business results of customer interactions, as well as to explain the reasons for certain operations.
After you select an appropriate code from a menu of predefined Action Codes, the code is passed along with its related request. The code then returns with the event which indicates that the request has been successfully processed. Eventually, the code is stored in the reporting database.
You can supplement each Action Code with a number of Subcodes that more precisely characterize the reasons for a certain action.
The Action Codes list shows the Action Codes that are in your environment. It is sorted in a hierarchy by Tenants, configuration units, sites, and folders. To view objects by a particular hierarchy, select the hierarchy type in the drop-down menu above the list.
Configuration Manager respects tenancy permission settings. You can access only those objects that you have been granted permissions and privileges to access.
You can filter the contents of this list in two ways:
- Type the name or partial name of an object in the Quick Filter field.
- Click the magnifying glass button to open the Tenant Directory filter panel. In this panel, click the Tenant that you want to select. Use the Quick Filter field in this panel to filter the Tenant list.
You can sort the items in the list by clicking a column head. Clicking a column head a second time reverses the sort order. You can add or remove columns by clicking the Select Columns button.
To select or de-select multiple objects at once, click the Select button.
