Master Schedule Weekly View

Use the Master Schedule Weekly view to display a summary table of total paid hours, working start/end times, or shift names, for all selected agents (who can be under multiple sites but must all be under the same business unit). See the toolbar image here and the button descriptions below.

When displaying the Master Schedule Weekly view, you can use the Intra-Day Schedule Rebuild Wizard.

The following sections cover:

Displaying the Master Schedule Weekly View

To display the Master Schedule Weekly view:

  1. From the Home menu on the toolbar, select Schedule.
  2. From the Schedule menu on the toolbar, select Master Schedule.
  3. From the Master Schedule menu on the toolbar, select Weekly.
  4. On the Objects pane, select the appropriate item(s) from either the Agents tree (above) or the Activities tree (below); WFM then selects matching item(s) from the other tree.

    You can expand business units to display their sites, and you can expand sites to display their teams and agents. You can select multiple sites, teams, and agents, but only one business unit.
  5. Click Get data to populate the Weekly view table for the selected agents.

You can search the table for particular agents using the Find Agent dialog box. To open it, select Find from the Edit menu or press Ctrl + F.

Using the Table

The Weekly view table contains rows for each agent that you selected in the Objects tree. (If a scroll bar is displayed to the right, you can use it to reveal more agents.) This table includes the following columns:

If in Planning Period mode, the first column provides expand/collapse controls that you use to display or hide agent details.
Team This column lists each agent's team.
Agent Two columns show an icon representing each agent's contract and the agent's name.
[Week Start Dates] If you display agent details and you are in Planning Period mode, the rows below each agent's name indicate the start date for each week in the schedule.
[Weekdays] These cells show agent schedule information for each weekday, for each week in the schedule. The cells' contents correspond to your selection from the Show Data for drop-down list.

If an agent is not scheduled for a shift on this day, the cell will contain: Day Off, <name of the full-day time-off type>, Working Hours (for scheduled working hours without a shift), or an exception name (for scheduled full-day exceptions).

An icon in the cell for a weekday indicates whether the schedule has been changed for that agent.

  • If the agent's schedule for that day was assigned during scheduling or rescheduling, no icon appears.
  • If the agent's day was edited after scheduling or rescheduling, a light-gray pencil icon appears.
  • If the agent's day was assigned by trading or swapping, the swap icon appears.
  • A yield icon (upside down red triangle) appears if there are pending changes. Pending changes must be committed by a user with Approve Changes security permission.
  • An icon and red check box appears for every schedule day that contains a granted calendar item (if the option Show agents with granted and scheduled rotating pattern or any other calendar preference is selected in the Options dialog box).
If there have been multiple changes, the icon represents the most recent status.
Weekly Totals Shows an agent's total working hours for the displayed week.
Planning Period Totals Shows an agent's total paid hours for the schedule planning period.
To set this period's duration and start date, see the Configuration > Polices > Contracts > Site Settings tab.

The Weekly Totals and Period Totals boxes below the table show a grand total of all weekly or planning period total paid hours (respectively) for all selected agents.

Customizing the Master Schedule Weekly View

To customize the displayed table, use these controls at the top of the working pane:

Show Data for

From this drop-down list, select what you want to display inside each day's table cell:

Total Paid Hours Total working time for the day.
Start/End Times Start and end times of agents' work.
Shift or Schedule State Names Names of agents' assigned shifts and other full-day states.


Select one Week or Planning Period from the Mode drop-down list. The table displays data for the selected period. If no schedule planning period is configured, or if more than one site is selected on the Objects pane, then the Planning Period option is disabled.

Planning Period Mode

Planning Period mode displays schedules for the entire planning period. White and dark gray indicate the type of date range that you are viewing.

Planning Period Color Legend

  • White—Indicates dates that fall within the planning period.
  • Dark Gray—Indicates dates that are outside the planning period.


Use the standard date-selection controls to move to other weeks.
