New In This Release
This topic contains a brief description of new features in the Genesys Workforce Management (WFM) 8.5 release.
WFM supports multiple media channels to track agent real-time states in the Web for Supervisors Adherence module; WFM Agent Adherence and Agent State reports now include historical multi-channel agent states and non-adherence events for each channel separately.
Time-Off (Vacation) Bidding
Time-off requests are processed within a configured bidding period for selected date ranges. When this feature is enabled (default, WFM delays granting agent time-off requests (that fall within the bidding period) until the processing date for that bidding period. On that date WFM grants time-off requests, based on seniority and/or rank. If there are available slots in time-off limits, WFM processes any time-off requests that were not granted, based on their submission order.
For more information about this feature, see Time-Off Bidding.
Single Sign-OnGenesys Platform on Demand (PoD) users (administrators, supervisors and agents) can now use a Single Sign-On (SSO) interface, which acts as a portal to the underlying Genesys components, including WFM. SSO provides a unified and simplified user experience without restricting the functionality of the underlying systems. Users navigate to a central landing page (Genesys Hub) that contains links that point to various Genesys platforms, based on their level of access permissions. For example, administrators see different links than supervisors or agents. Administrators or supervisors provide their agents with the landing page URL. SSO simplifies user provisioning for administrators and provides a unified security model for all users. See more.. [+]
