Agent Group Configuration

Access in Advisors to agent groups is not configured in Configuration Manager. Advisors dashboard users only have access or not to these objects indirectly, via access to business objects related to them. Starting in Release 8.1.5, two new options are added to the Agent Group Configuration page:

  • Include in CCAdv
  • Include in WA

You use these options to specify whether an agent group assigned to an agent group contact center (AGCC) participates in the CCAdv and WA rollups. If you use CCAdv and WA in integrated configuration mode, the default value for both options is Yes, and you cannot edit the options. If, however, you use CCAdv and WA in independent configuration mode, you can specify to the configuration of which application (CCAdv or WA) to add the agent group and its associated AGCC.

For more information about the CCAdv/WA configuration modes, see Performance Management Advisors 8.1 Deployment Guide.

Adding/Deleting a New Agent Group in Configuration Manager

Agent groups are added to Advisors by being imported from external data sources, and cannot be deleted.

Configuring Agent Group Attributes in Advisors

The Agent Group Configuration page allows you to:

  • Maintain agent group details
  • Assign agent groups to agent-group contact centers, and review the agent groups assigned to a contact center, application group, reporting region, or operating unit

For agent-group contact centers, you assign the agent groups that are already assigned to a network contact center. An agent group can be assigned to a network contact center through its association to applications on the Applications Configuration page. If an agent group is later removed from the association to the application, the association to the agent-group contact center is removed automatically.

Maintaining Agent Group Details

The Agent Group Details tab allows you to maintain details of agent groups, apart from their primary name. The following screenshot shows the Agent Groups Details tab.

Maintaining agent group details


To maintain details of agent groups, including determining which agent groups can display in the Agent Groups pane on the dashboard.


Start Procedure

  1. Select the Agent Group Details tab.
  2. Use the filters in the uppermost panel to filter the display of agent groups.
    Filters on the Agent Group Details tab are used exclusively to narrow down the list of agent groups; the filters do not restrict the range of updates or changes you make on the tab. All changes you make to agent group properties on this tab are Advisors-wide; for example, an agent group displays the same descriptive name throughout WA and CCAdv even if it is mapped to multiple aggregated objects. The same applies to Zero Suppress and Display on Dashboard properties: either an agent group is suppressed/hidden or it is not suppressed/not hidden in any view.
  3. Select an agent group from the list.
  4. Type a descriptive name in the Descriptive Name field.
    The descriptive name will display on the dashboard. If a descriptive name is not provided, the generated name displays on the dashboard.
  5. To prevent an agent group from displaying on the dashboard when no current call activity exists, select Yes for Zero Suppress.
  6. To make the agent group display on the dashboard, select Display on Dashboard.
  7. Click Save.
    A confirmation message displays.

Assigning Agent Groups to Agent Group Contact Centers

In Advisors releases prior to release 8.1.5, if no contact centers are selected in the contact center drop-down list, the Assigned Agent Group pane shows all agent groups that are associated with an agent group contact center (AGCC). If a contact center is selected in the contact center drop-down list, the Assigned Agent Group pane shows all agent groups that are associated with this particular contact center.

Starting in release 8.1.5, an agent group can be assigned to more than one AGCC. In release 8.1.5 and later, if no contact centers are selected in the contact center drop-down list, the Available Agent Group pane shows all agent groups that are not associated with any AGCC. If a contact center is selected in the contact center drop-down list, the Available Agent Group pane shows all agent groups that are not associated with this particular contact center.

The following screenshot shows the Agent Group Contact Center tab.

The names of agent group contact centers display on the page with the corresponding network contact center name and use the format NCC Name: AGCC Name.

Maintaining agent groups-to-agent group contact center assignments


Start Procedure

  1. Select the Agent Group - Agent Group Contact Center tab.
  2. Use the filters in the uppermost panel to filter the display of assigned agent groups in the Assigned Agent Groups panel. To display all assigned agent groups, select All.
    The display shows assigned agent groups and available agent groups.
  3. Select an agent group from the Available Agent Groups pane, and click Assign.
    The Assign Rollups window opens.
  4. Select the agent group contact center from the drop-down list.
    If you use CCAdv and WA in integrated configuration mode, the Include in CCAdv and Include in WA rollup options are grayed out. If you use CCAdv and WA in independent configuration mode, specify whether the agent group should be included in the CCAdv and/or WA rollups. Select Yes to include it in the rollup, and No to exclude it from contributing to rollup information in the relevant application.
  5. Click Assign.
Tip
If you want to map an agent group to an AGCC, and this agent group is already mapped to an AGCC, select the contact center in the uppermost contact center drop-down list and click the Filter button to place the agent group onto the Available pane; then you can map it to the selected AGCC.
Editing an Agent Group Assignment


Start Procedure

  1. Select the Agent Group - Agent Group Contact Center tab.
  2. Select an assigned agent group from the list by checking the checkbox.
    You can select multiple agent groups for edit, but the changes you make will apply to all selected applications.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Select a new Agent Group Contact Center from the drop-down list, or change your selection to include or exclude the agent group from CCAdv or WA rollups.
    The Include in CCAdv and Include in WA options are grayed out if you use integrated configuration mode.
  5. Click Save.
