Basic Use-Case Summary

The purpose of this user's guide is to enable you to learn the basic functionality of Workspace. See the Workspace 8.5 Help for more details about each user-interface component. To access the context-sensitive Help from any window in the Workspace interface, open the Help menu, or press the F1 key on your keyboard.

This section summarizes the high-level steps that you might follow to handle a voice interaction.

During your use of Workspace, you might be locked out of Workspace and have your status set to Not Ready if you do not use your keyboard or mouse for an inactivity period that is defined by your administrator. If you are locked out of Workspace, you must reauthenticate and reset your status to Ready to receive new interactions. For more information, see the Inactivity Timeout topic in the Workspace 8.5 Help.


To begin these role privileges your system must meet the following requirements:

  • The Workspace ClickOnce application is installed on your local web server.
  • The Workspace ClickOnce application is installed on your workstation.
  • You are configured as an agent.
  • Your workstation operating system is Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Starting the Application and Handling an Inbound Interaction

Use a Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or higher web browser to launch the Workspace bootstrap application. This bootstrap application enables you to login to your system and download the Workspace application.

  1. Before you launch Workspace, if you are using a softphone (a headset connected to your workstation), make sure that your headset is plugged in.

    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.

  2. Double-click the Workspace icon on your desktop to start the Workspace application.
