Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I change password?

  • If this is your first time logging on, you might have to change your password. This happens automatically. A message box is displayed that walks you through the steps. If you are not sure about any of the prompts, your administrator or supervisor can provide you with the details.
  • If you need to change your password, send a request to your supervisor requesting a change password email. You supervisor will reset your password, and you will receive a confirmation email. Follow the instructions in the email to change your password.

What happens when I lose connection?

Sometimes network issues can cause Agent Desktop to lose connection to the system. Don't worry, see the Handling a system disconnection article to find out what to do!

What are Skills?

  • Skills are things that you are good at, like product specialization or a language that you speak.
  • When your supervisor sets up your account, she or he assigns skills and skill levels based on what you can do.
  • Skills are used to direct calls to you. If someone calls about a product that you are specialized on, the call will be directed to you and others with the same skill on that product.

How can I find my Call Stats?

  • Use the Performance Tracker to see your call activity, worktime, and other reports.
  • Use the Dashboard tab to see the list of statistics about the Routing Points, Queues, and other contact center objects.

How do I transfer, conference, or consult on my call?

Agent Desktop lets you start a conference call with someone in your company, transfer your call to another agent or your team lead, or start a consultation call with another member of your team. The call controls at the top of the voice call interaction toolbar open the Team Communicator, a universal lookup tool, that lets you search for and dial other team members.
