Volumes Split Wizard

Use the Volumes Split Wizard to split a forecast scenario for a multi-site activity:

  1. Select a Scenario Volumes view that uses multi-site activities.
  2. On the Forecast Scenario Volumes view toolbar, click the Split button.
  3. In the Split Range Date screen, enter a start and end date for the range and click Next.
  4. In the Select Multi-site Activities screen, select the check boxes next to the multi-site activities that you want to split.
    Tip
    You can select several multi-site activities within the same Business Unit.
  5. To include the average handling time forecasts in the split, select Use AHT Forecast and click Next.
    If you select Use AHT Forecast but some of the selected activities do not have an AHT forecast, the result for each of these activities will be 0 for the timestep(s) where AHT=0.
    Warning
    If you do not select Use AHT Forecast, the multi-site activity AHT is assigned to the local activities. This overwrites the local activity AHT. If there is no multi-site activity AHT, local activity AHT is simply deleted.
  6. If any selected multi-site activity has the type deferred, the wizard will contain additional page: Specify Service Time. If this is not true, go to step 9.
  7. In the Specify Service Time screen, specify the service time for each deferred multi-site activity. This screen displays a grid with the following columns, with one activity per row:
    • Activity—The name of the multi-site activity.
    • Service Time Type—A drop-down menu with the following values:
      • Hours, interrupted time (default selection)—When an interaction is waiting, while the activity is closed, the time is not being counted in the service level calculations.
      • Hours, non-interrupted time—When an interaction is waiting, while the activity is closed, the time is still being counted in the service level calculations.
      • Business days—The number of business days, including the current day during which the interaction arrived. If the service level = 100% within one business day, then all interactions must be serviced on the same day they have arrived, according to open hours.
    • Service Time—The nature of this control depends upon your selection in the Service Time Type column.
      • If the granularity is Hours, then this cell in the row is a spin box where you must specify hours, minutes and seconds; and this value must be greater than 0.
      • If the granularity is Business days, then this cell in the row is a field where you must enter or select an integer that is greater than 0.
        Important
        If you switch the granularity from Hours to Business days, WFM Web resets the time value to 0.
  8. Click Next.
  9. In the Select Activities within Multi-site Activities screen:
    1. Select the local (target) activities into which you want to split the multi-site activities. (You can select several target activities.)
      Important
      • If you selected Use AHT Forecast in step 5, then you cannot select target activities that do not have at least one timestep with at least one AHT value greater than 0.
      • If you select Use All Activities, when WFM splits data for interaction volumes, AHT, and agent availabilities for the selected activities in the scenario, it takes into account the values for all activities in the specified site, whether selected or not.

        Activities that are not selected are not split; WFM Web simply considers them when determining the proportions that are split to each selected activity. This option does not affect the split result if there are no shared multi-skill agents who work on both selected and unselected activities.
  10. To ensure WFM considers the existing Calendar items when splitting the interaction volume among activities, select the Consider Granted Calendar Items check box.
  • Click Next.
  • In the Manual Split Parameters screen, you can enter a percentage in the Split % column for each of the child activities of multi-site activities or click in the Template column to use a template.
    If both Split % and Template are set for any activity, the template values are used for all non empty time steps. For empty time steps in Template, the specified Split % value is used. To select a template:
    1. Select the row in which you want to use a template, click the WM 851 split vol wiz template button.png button.
    2. After the Use Template dialog opens, select a template from the list and click OK.
      Important
      If you click OK without selecting a template, the template field will be empty.
  • After the Manual Split Parameters screen is populated as desired, click Finish.
    WFM Web displays a Progress dialog box while it splits the activities.
  • Optionally, click Cancel if you want to cancel the split. After splitting the activities, WFM Web returns to the Volumes view.
  • Splitting Volumes by Percentage

    You can specify a percentage to allocate the Volumes from a Multi-Site Activity to each Child (Site) Activity.  An interval can be the entire forecast scenario that includes a week, day, and timestep.

    At the interval level, when the percentage is specified that is greater than the timestep, WFM propagates the percentage to the remaining timesteps. If a percentage is not specified for certain Child Activities, WFM splits the remaining volumes to those activities, by splitting them by availability.  You can specify a different percentage value for each interval.
