Manage Your Status
Click the Ready Status icon to open your status menu.
Place the mouse pointer over the Ready Status icon to view your status summary.
The status summary includes your login name, Place, channels, and channel status, as well as your Ready state.
Managing Multiple Channels
If you are logged in to more than one channel, detailed status for each channel is available in the My Channels view.
Not Ready Status
When you are handling an interaction, the system interrupts the display of the amount of time that you are in the current state.
If, while you are handling an interaction for a given channel, you set your status to either Not Ready, Not Ready - <reason>, or After Call Work (ACW) the system does not display the amount of time that you are in that state until the interaction is complete. This feature enables your break or ACW time to be displayed according to recorded statistics.
Inactivity Timeout is a security feature that locks the Interaction Workspace windows on your workstation, if you do not use your mouse or keyboard for a period of time that is defined by your administrator. You must authenticate to reactivate Interaction Workspace.
Manage Your Contacts and Launch a New Interaction
