Enabling Internal And External Communications

Procedure: Enabling an agent to use Team Communicator to call/conference/transfer a voice interaction to an agent, agent group, skill, or routing point by using a strategy

Purpose: To enable an agent to use Team Communicator to call, conference, or transfer to an agent, agent group, skill, or a routing point. This procedure is mandatory for agent group and skill targets.

Tip
No extra configuration is required to transfer an interaction to an agent.

Prerequisites

  • A working knowledge of Genesys Administrator or Configuration Manager.
  • A working knowledge of Interaction Routing Designer.
  • A WWEWS Cluster application object exists in the Configuration Database.
  • To transfer to skills, you must have skills defined in the Configuration Database.
  • To transfer to agent groups, you must have agent groups defined in the Configuration Database.

Start

  1. In the Configuration tab of the WWEWS Cluster application, add a connection to Stat Server.
  2. In the connection, add a reference to the T-Server associated with the switch to which the agent logs in.
  3. Configure the Team Communicator options in the interaction-workspace section of the WWEWS Cluster application object.
  4. Depending on the type of target for which you want to use routing-based transfer, use Configuration Manager or Genesys Administrator to set the value of the intercommunication.voice.routing-based-targets configuration options as follows:
    • To use T-Server to handle transfer to Agent, Routing Point, and Type Destination, and have all other transfers handled by a strategy, set the value of this option to "" (empty)
    • To use routing-based transfer for Agents, add the value Agent to this option.
    • To use routing-based transfer for Routing Point, add the value RoutingPoint to this option.
    • To use routing-based transfer for Type Destination (a dialed call), add the value TypeDestination to this option.
    • For agent groups and skills, it is not mandatory to set the routing-based target option because these target always use routing-based transfer.
  5. By using Interaction Routing Designer (IRD), create a routing strategy that uses routing targets (agents, agent groups, skills, and so on) to process routing-based actions by using the following attached data:
    • IW_RoutingBasedOriginalEmployeeId — The employee ID of the agent who is transferring the interaction.
    • IW_RoutingBasedTargetId — The ID (employee ID of another agent, AgentGroup name, Skill name, Routing Point name) of the target.
    • IW_RoutingBasedTargetType — The type of the target (Agent, AgentGroup, Skill, or RoutingPointl)
    • IW_RoutingBasedRequestType — Informs the strategy of the type of action is to be done (MakeCall,OneStepConference,InitConference,OneStepTransfer,InitTransfer)
  6. Load the routing strategy on the Routing Point that is defined by the intercommunication.voice.routing-points option.
  7. Enable the agent to use the voice media by specifying the value true for the priviledge.voice.can-use option.
  8. Enable agent presence to be displayed in the Team Communicator search results by specifying the value true for the presence.evaluate-presence configuration option.
  9. To enable agents to perform a Single Step Conference, in the interaction-workspace section, specify the list of targets (Agent, AgentGroup, RoutingPoint, Contact, and/or TypeDestination) that are enabled in Team Communication for a single-step conference by using the intercommunication.voice.single-step-conference-enabled configuration option.
  10. For small contact centers, where the number of potential transfer targets is low, you can configure Workspace to display all of the possible targets in the Team Communicator when an agent initiates a transfer or conference by searching in the Team Communicator. To enable this functionality, in the interaction-workspace section, specify the value true for the teamcommunicator.show-all-internal-targets configuration option. This option is limited by the value that is specified for the teamcommunicator.max-size option.
    Important
    Genesys strongly recommends that only small contact centers use this option. Agents in large contact centers will experience system performance issues if the teamcommunicator.show-all-internal-targets option is enabled.

Procedure: Enabling an agent to use Team Communicator to transfer a multimedia interaction to an agent, agent group, or skill by using a strategy

Purpose: To enable an agent to use Team Communicator to transfer a multimedia interaction (E-Mail and Chat) to an agent, agent group, or skill. This procedure is mandatory to transfer to agent groups and skills.

Prerequisites

  • A working knowledge of Genesys Administrator or Configuration Manager.
  • A working knowledge of Interaction Routing Designer.
  • A WWEWS Cluster application object exists in the Configuration Database.
  • To transfer to skills, you must have skills defined in the Configuration Database.
  • To transfer to agent groups, you must have agent groups defined in the Configuration Database.

Start

  1. By using Interaction Routing Designer (IRD), configure a routed-based transfer workflow by using these steps:
    1. Create an Interaction Queue/Interaction View pair. The Interaction Queue is used as a part of the workflow; however, Interaction Queues are not available as transfer targets in the agent interface.
    2. Create a routing strategy to process routing-based actions. To help you write the appropriate strategy, Workspace Web Edition adds the following attached data to the interaction:
      • IW_RoutingBasedOriginalEmployeeId — The employee ID of the agent who is transferring the interaction.
      • IW_RoutingBasedTargetId — The ID (employee ID of another agent, AgentGroup name, Skill name) of the target.
      • IW_RoutingBasedTargetType — The type of the target (Agent, AgentGroup, or Skill)
      • IW_RoutingBasedRequestType — Informs the strategy of the type of action is to be done. This attached data has only one value available for this release: OneStepTransfer
    3. Link the above Queue to the strategy.
    4. Activate the strategy.
  2. By using Configuration Manager or Genesys Administrator, set the values of the following configuration options to the Queue that you created in Step 1:
  3. Depending on the type of target for which you want to use routing-based transfer, use Configuration Manager or Genesys Administrator to set the values of the intercommunication.chat.routing-based-targets and intercommunication.email.routing-based-targets configuration options as follows:
    • To use Interaction Server to handle agent-to-agent transfer and have all other transfers handled by a strategy, set the values of these options to "" (empty)
    • To use routing-based transfer for Agents, set the values of these options to Agent.
    • For agent groups and skills, it is not mandatory to set the routing-based target options because these target always use routing-based transfer.
  4. Log out agents and log them back in again.

Procedure: Creating Corporate Favorites

Purpose: To enable the use of corporate favorites in the Team Communicator.

Administrators must create, edit, and remove favorites by using either Configuration Manager or Genesys Administrator. You can configure the system so that each agent is assigned one or more "quick dial" favorites lists. You do not have to assign the same list of favorites to every agent.

Start

  1. By using either Configuration Manager or Genesys Administrator, create a new section and name it with the name of the Corporate Favorite that you want to create.
  2. Configure the new Corporate Favorite section to be one of the following types:
    • Agent
    • Agent Group
    • Skill
    • Routing Point
    • Custom Contact
    The Table Corporate Favorite Options by Type defines the Corporate Favorite types and the mandatory options.
  3. Corporate Favorite Options by Type
    Type Options Mandatory Valid values Example
    Agent type Yes Agent Agent
    id Yes <user name of the agent> User123
    category Yes <a semicolon-separated list of category names> CorporateCategory1;FavoriteAgents
    display-name No Jim Brown
    Agent Group type Yes AgentGroup AgentGroup
    id Yes <name of the agent group> Agent Group Meridian
    category Yes <a semicolon-separated list of category names> CorporateCategory1;FavoriteAgents
    display-name No Meridian
    Skill type Yes Skill Skill
    id Yes <name of the skill> French
    category Yes <a semicolon-separated list of category names> French Speaking Agents; Mandarin Speaking Agents
    display-name No French
    Routing Point type Yes RoutingPoint RoutingPoint
    id Yes DN number in the following format <DN>@<SwitchName> 123@MySwitch
    category Yes <a semicolon-separated list of category names> CorpRoutingPoint
    display-name No Support
    Custom Contact type Yes CustomContact CustomContact
    category Yes <a semicolon-separated list of category names> External Resources
    firstname No <any string> First
    lastname No <any string> External
    phonenumber Yes (one or both) <a semicolon-separated list of phone numbers> +1555234567890;+555123454321
    emailaddress <a semicolon-separated list of e-mail addresses> external1@mail.dom; external2@mail.dom
    display-name No Angie Davis
  4. In the configuration layer, in options of the related section (or Tenant/Agent Group/Agent annexes), configure the following options in the interaction-workspace section of agent, agent group, tenant, and/or application annexes:
    • teamcommunicator.corporate-favorites -- The list of corporate favorites (quick dial favorites) that are configured in Configuration Server for an Agent, Agent Group, Skill, Routing Point, or Custom Contact in the same tenant as the agent. Favorites that are configured at the agent level take precedence over those that are configured at the agent group level, which take precedence over the tenant level, which takes precedence over the application level.
    • teamcommunicator.max-size -- The maximum number of favorites to display to the agent in the Team Communicator drop-down view.

End

Assignment of Favorites

When you create corporate favorites, you assign to them a type that is based on the scope to which it is applied: agent, agent group, tenant, or application. You can create multiple favorites and assign them in a hierarchy. For example, you create four favorites: fav1, fav2, fav3, and fav4. You then make the following assignments:

  1. application—teamcommunicator.corporate-favorites="fav1; fav2"
  2. tenant—teamcommunicator.corporate-favorites="fav4"
  3. agent—teamcommunicator.corporate-favorites="fav1; fav3"

The final list of favorites that are assigned to the agent are: "fav1; fav3"
