WFM Configuration Wizards

The Workforce Management (WFM) Configuration Wizards guide you through the process of creating the Application objects for the WFM components. It is run from the Genesys Wizard Manager. This topic includes the following sections and contains procedures that will help you to install and run the wizards, and create the WFM Application objects:

You can also create and configure the component Application objects manually. For instructions, see Manually Create and Configure the Applications.

Important
You must manually configure the Options tab. For a list of the options on the Options tab, with default settings and descriptions, see Configuring the Options Tabs.

Installing and Running the Configuration Wizards

You must install the wizards before you can run them. After you install them, start the Configuration Wizards and use them to create WFM Application objects. To install and start the Configuration Wizards, see Installing WFM Configuration Wizards and Starting the Configuration Wizards.
