Using E-mail Notifications in WFM

This topic provides information about how to use the Notifications module in Workforce Management (WFM) Web for Supervisors to configure e-mail notifications, by site, for the following types of events:

  • Schedule trade status changes—This type of notification can be received by both agents and supervisors who are affected by a schedule trade proposal or response.
  • Time off request status changes—This type of notification can be received by both agents and supervisors who are affected by a time off request.
  • Schedule modifications—This type of notification can be received by the agent who is affected by the schedule change.

Schedule Trade Status Changes

WFM Daemon uses the following rules when sending schedule trade status change notifications:

  • Both the proposing agent (creating the trade request) and responding agent (receiving the trade proposal) associated with the selected sites are notified when a trade status is User-declined, User-approved, Auto-declined, Auto-approved, or Cancelled.
  • Supervisors who have appropriate security rights and are associated with the selected sites are notified when a trade status is Pending.
  • Supervisors who have the appropriate security rights are notified when the Schedule Trade status changes from Pending to any other status.
  • The responding agent is notified when the status of a trade proposal is In Review or Open.
  • The proposing agent is notified when the response status of a trade proposal is Accepted, In Review, or Cancelled.

Time Off Request Status Changes

WFM Daemon uses the following rules when sending time off status change notifications:

  • When a supervisor manually changes agent time off in the Calendar module, the affected agent is notified.
  • When an agent requests time off (that is not Auto-declined), supervisors who have the appropriate security rights are notified.
  • When automatic Time-Off request status changes occur, supervisors who have the appropriate security rights and affected agents are notified.
  • When Time-Off balance-affecting changes occur, supervisors who have the appropriate security rights are notified.

For a complete description of the WFM security roles and privileges, see the Roles topic.

Schedule Modifications

When a supervisor changes one or more scheduled days, WFM sends a schedule modification notification to the affected agent in the configured site and to supervisors who have the appropriate security rights.
