Workbin and Queue Management

In this lesson, you will learn how a Team Lead (supervisor) can view and manage the contents of the workbins of the agents or agent groups that he or she supervises. You will also learn how to view and manage the contents of queues by viewing "snapshots" of the interactions in the interaction database.

This lesson contains the following sections:

My Team Workbin Management

Interactions can be routed to the agents that you lead and can be stored in their workbins to be handled at any time. Also, your agents might choose to store draft and in-progress interactions in their workbins. Sometimes it might be necessary to move the interactions from an agent's personal workbin to the workbin of another agent, to your own workbin, or to a queue. Use the following procedure to move an interaction from the workbin of one agent to the workbin of another agent.
