Make sure that your headset is plugged in if you are using a softphone (a headset connected to your workstation) before you launch Workspace.
Double-click the Workspace icon on your desktop to launch the application.
- When you log in to Workspace, the application is enabled for any headsets that are plugged into your workstation. If you want to use a different headset, exit Workspace, plug in the new headset, then relaunch Workspace.
- When you launch the application, Workspace might automatically update. Depending on how your system is configured, you might have the opportunity to reject the update. If you do not accept the update, it will be offered to you again the next time that you login.
- Depending on the configuration of your environment, if you log in to a SIP Voice channel and your configured USB headset is not plugged in, you might be logged in to Workspace but not the SIP Voice channel. To complete login to the SIP Voice channel, plug in your USB headset.
What do I do if I see: "Cannot start Workspace SIP Endpoint"
If you see the error message "Cannot start Workspace SIP Endpoint", it is possible that the SIP Endpoint is not installed or was not installed correctly on your workstation.
To see if it is installed, go to the Windows Start menu and look for the Workspace SIP Endpoint application there. Try launching it from the Start menu. If it does not launch or you get the same error message, ask your administrator to review the installation of SIP Endpoint on your workstation. You can give them this link to the document that describes how to install it: https://docs.genesys.com/Documentation/IW/8.5.1/Dep/InstallingTheIWSIPEndpoint
If, after installing or reinstalling the SIP Endpoint you still get the error, please ask your administrator to contact Genesys Customer Care as there might be other issues with your installation, and they can help to troubleshoot the problem.
