Resolved Issues

This release contains the following resolved issues:

The [AgentTimeOff] AllowWaitList configuration option found in the WFM Web Application has been removed from the Application template as it is not applicable to the new Agent UI. However, it is still applicable to the classic Web for Agents UI and if required, must be added manually. (WFM-26715)

WFM Web now retains the user's selection when the Use Multi-Site Activities option is set while switching between Forecast views. Previously, if users left the Forecast view after setting this option and returned to it, they would have to reset this option. (WFM-26690)

WFM now generates the Activity Properties, Contract Properties, Rotating Pattern Properties reports and shows data, regardless of the week start day in the user's locale. Previously, WFM displayed an error message when generating these reports, if the week start day in the user's locale was something other than Sunday or Monday. (WFM-26637)

WFM Web now shows the Contact Center Performance report if the user generating it, switches to another module, and then switches back to the report. Previously in this scenario, the report was no longer visible when the user switched back. (WFM-26589)

In the new Agent UI, the Legend in the My Schedule view displays properly, adapting to the number of items contained within it. This is an improvement, based on the classic Agent UI, where the Legend in the Schedule view did not properly display if it contained many items. (WFM-26572)

WFM no longer generates an error when users click on a graph in the Performance Monitor view. The occurrence of this error did not impact functionality. (WFM-26568)

Agents in Business Units that have a start day of Sunday can now log in successfully to their WFM Web mobile application. Previously, the Web mobile application froze when these agents attempted to log in. (WFM-26565)

Now, after translation, the WFM Web for Agents (Classic) UI displays session expiration messages in the correct language in the Schedule and other views. Previously, these messages were sometimes incorrectly displayed in English. (WFM-26563)

WFM Web for Supervisors now correctly displays the Estimated End Time after rows are copied and pasted in the Rotating Patterns > Properties view. Previously, the Estimated End Time displayed incorrectly until the copied and pasted rows were saved. Then, they displayed correctly. (WFM-26531)
