This release addresses slow performance issues with Oracle databases, by adding an index hint to some database queries. Previously, such queries would sometimes limit performance because Oracle Optimizer did not always use the correct index. (ER# 243738776)


With this release, WFM Server correctly returns agent calendar item information from a former agent site, when the agent was moved to another site but still has calendar items under the old site. (ER# 242361355)


With this release, the WFM Server load balancing mechanism correctly directs new sessions to the server with the least open sessions, even when balanced nodes have different amounts of memory installed and available. Previously, WFM Server ignored the session count and directed all sessions to the node with the most memory available. (ER# 242611336)

Workforce Management (WFM) Server now allows a user to recall different types of time off simultaneously, if the time-off rules of those types are configured without restrictions. (ER# 219671791)


WFM Server now correctly interprets schedule data for overnight Time Offs when trying to determine the start and end time for a Time Off. (ER# 219679599)


WFM Server now checks the previous day Calendar item for conflicts with a full-day Time Off while determining full-day time-off start and end times. (ER# 219679307)


WFM Server no longer incorrectly consults rules that are used for validating time-off balances when determining paid hours for a full-day Time Off, if the agent with the Time Off has an accrual rule configured and assigned. (ER# 218720718)


WFM Server now correctly presents agent availability when consecutive overnight availability has been configured. (ER# 220072245)


With this release, the several total values are now correctly calculated based on the 24 selection in the WFM Web GUI. Previously, the total was always arbitrarily calculated for a 24-hour period. These values are:

(ER#s 221825311, 221825325, 221825363, 221825391, 221825405, 221825419)


WFM Server now displays a full-day Time Off with the start and end times correctly, even when the time off duration is resolved to 0 (zero). (ER# 221685512)


With this release, WFM Server no longers displays an incorrect message about the time-off type when an agent requests different preferences in the Preferences View. (ER# 220321237)


WFM Server now correctly interprets scheduled full-day time-off start and end times, and checks them against time-off limits. (ER# 218878469)


In rare cases when a schedule date has an overnight Time Off which starts after Midnight on the next day, and an agent has this Time Off in his Calendar too, the Agent Time Off view no longer incorrectly displays two items when you are editing the Time Off. (ER# 222052666)


With this release, WFM Server now correctly compares determined start and end times against Time Off limits. (ER# 219058159)


The Schedule States report no longer reports exception states that are assigned to a non-exception group as general exceptions. (ER# 191375081)


The Calendar service no longer incorrectly counts a scheduled part-day exception as a time-off type in Web Agent. (ER# 191567517)


Schedule updates are now instantly visible to all clients. Previously, schedule updates were sometimes delayed for some clients when using a multiple-server configuration for load balancing. (ER# 192121899)


The activity coverage is now correctly updated for meals and breaks, when a user selects the Automatically Insert Meals and Breaks option while inserting multiple shifts. (ER# 202441247)


WFM Server now accepts the CfgServerRequestTimeout client application option value when connecting to Configuration Server. Previously, WFM Server always used the default timeout value (10 seconds).

However, Genesys advises that increasing the value of CfgServerRequestTimeout may adversely affect WFM Server responsiveness.To speed up Configuration Server response efficiently, install a Configuration Server proxy that is dedicated to the WFM solution. (ER# 219229708)


While calculating the total AHT value (Forecasted and Actual), WFM Server now looks at the requested period instead of an entire 24 hour period. (ER# 218950763)


WFM Server now correctly calculates Multi-site Activity data in the Performance view when the current time zone is different from the selected site's time zone in the agent view. (ER# 196969431)


WFM Server now accurately counts the total number of agents at the site level while checking Time Off limits. Previously, the user's security settings prevented an accurate count. (ER# 194844870)

New in This Release

There are no restrictions for this release. No new features were introduced in this release of Workforce Management Server.

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following corrections and modifications that were made between Release 7.5 or earlier releases and the initial 7.6 release:


Now when you change a Forecast event in the Forecast Wizard, the newly entered values are used. Otherwise, the Forecast event attributes which are configured in the WFM Config Utility are used. (ER# 53299685)


To prevent overloading of WFM Server and the resources of the computer where WFM Server is installed, a new WFM Server application option (MaxActivityDays) has been added. Use Configuration Manager to add and edit this option on the Options tab > PerformanceService section. (You may need to create the PerformanceService section first.)

MaxActivityDays
Type: Optional
Default Value: 25,000
Valid Value: Any positive integer
Dependencies: None

This option controls the maximum cost of performance-related and forecast-related data that can be returned by WFM Server. It prevents very large requests from overloading WFM Server. The value represents Activity Days. For example, a request for 50 activities over a 31-day period would require 1550 Activity Days.

If the request requirement exceeds the MaxActivityDays limit, then the server returns this message:

Specified date range is too long for selected target. Please select different target or a shorter date range.

The default value is based on a typical customer configuration. You may need to adjust it, depending on your installed hardware, user work pattern, or if the server is too slow or short of memory when handling certain requests. (ER# 66030496)


The Calendar Item submit date is recorded when a new Calendar Item is added to the database, and the date can never be modified. To view changes to the Calendar Item (and dates when they occurred), build the Calendar Audit report. (ER# 72106456)


The WFM Server Calendar service now performs batch saving requests of Calendar Items faster. (ER# 96263637)


The Calendar service now correctly passes multiple item changes to the Time Off balance verification method. The Time Off balance is checked correctly. (ER# 128004401)


The overnight Headcount is now displayed correctly for overnight shifts (beginning after midnight) in the Master Schedule Summary > Headcount [Scheduled] view and in the Contact Center Performance Report. (ER# 129033535)


The WFM Server Performance service correctly displays the Coverage (number of Agents) Actual value in the Performance > Monitor view for a Multi-site Activity, when child Activities are in different time zones. (ER# 135226454)


An Unspecified Error message no longer appears as the result of a WFM Server Internal Error. (ER# 137771951, 166895177)


While building a Forecast, the WFM Server's database operations module no longer generates a database error by passing an incorrect parameter value. (ER# 137771985, 167315073)


The Expert Average Engine now correctly calculates daily values when one of the working days has much lower or higher values than other days. (ER# 146070174)


WFM Server performance while generating Audit reports on Oracle platform is greatly improved. (ER# 147017978)


If Activities cannot cover the entire duration of a shift (because of open hours or because the shift was extended past midnight), an attempt to insert the shift in the Intra-day Schedule no longer fails with an internal error. (ER# 147117384)


You can now use the WFM API to change an Agent site assignment. Previously, changing an Agent site assignment failed with a database error on the server side. (ER# 149392372)


Scheduled service objectives at the Business Unit (BU) level are now a weighted average of the scheduled service objectives at the Multi-Site Activity (MSA) level. Previously, the total at the BU level could be higher than the total at the MSA level, because the BU total reflected timesteps where scheduled agents were present but no Interaction Volume (IV) was forecast. The new calculations for scheduled service objectives at the BU level are based on an MSA "calculation branch," but the calculations take account of schedules from that BU only. (ER# 151560378)


Trading of two agent schedules no longer results in removal of the schedules for both agents. Previously, this sometimes happened under certain specific conditions. (ER# 154022183)


When a user modifies the schedule in the Intra-day Schedule view, WFM Server now always checks the minimum duration between the end of the day and start of next working day constraint and issues a warning if needed. (ER# 154022226)


The WFM Server Calendar service now updates the edited calendar item ID in the audit record correctly when an Agent modifies an availability item by using an Availability Pattern. (ER# 160180429)


The WFM Server Calendar service now correctly handles the conflict between a Part-day item (an Exception or a Time Off item) and compatible Working Hours when no compatible Shift configuration is available. Previously in this situation, the Calendar service declined the Part-day item. (ER# 164828745)


When requesting multiple time-off days, an Agent can no longer have a negative time-off balance. (ER# 168309093)

Known Issues and Recommendations

This section provides the latest information on known issues and recommendations associated with this product.


The correction that is described in ER# 243738776 requires a workaround to maintain correct functionality with Microsoft SQL databases. Use Configuration Manager to edit the WFM Server application. Create a Hints section and inside it, create the option wm_cfg_timestamp = <whitespace> (a single space). Then restart WFM Server. (ER# 244293291)

Found In:  7.6.101.10 Fixed In: 

WFM Server returns the incorrect shift end time when a shift is entered and an unpaid item already exists for that date; a condition that violates the shift configuration, in this case the latest end time setting. Workaround: create a more flexible shift configuration, or conditions that do not violate it. (ER# 230425816)

Found In:  7.6.101.06 Fixed In: 

When you enter a paid, full-day time-off instance into a schedule, if you specify start and end times but do not specify paid hours, then paid hours are set equal to the instance's duration (the end time minus the start time), regardless of the the option DetermineFullDayTimeOffStartEndPaidHours. (ER# 229564473)

Found In:  7.6.101.05 Fixed In: 

When the DetermineFullDayTimeOffStartEndPaidHours option is set to true, the server incorrectly converts an unpaid full-day time off item without start and end values to an unpaid item with determined values. The item is incorrectly converted to a paid time off. (ER# 228653331)

Found In:  7.6.101.04 Fixed In:  7.6.101.05

An time-off instance is not counted toward time-off limits (even though it is marked to do so) if its time-off type is assigned to a time-off rule with paid hours set to zero. (ER# 228086423)

Found In:  7.6.101.02 Fixed In: 

If the available historical data is less than the duration of the overlay, then any attempt to calculate that overlay will return empty or incorrect data. (ER# 224894841)

Found In:  7.6.100.44 Fixed In: 

When all the events being redistributed are historical, performing a redistribution has no impact on the forecast. This may be contrary to a user's expectations. (ER# 214326981)

Found In:  7.6.100.26 Fixed In: 

When you initiate a search for historical anomalies in the Find Event dialog box, WFM incorrectly searches all events with the parameter Disregard Historical Data selected that also have been configured for an activity. (ER# 214240605)

Found In:  7.6.100.26 Fixed In: 

When two consecutive full-day Exceptions each start before and end after midnight, the Calendar service incorrectly declines one of them. (ER# 175691411)

Found In:  7.6.000.18 Fixed In:  7.6.100.01

The Force Maximum Preferences option in the Schedule build Wizard (not selected by default) does not work if the Master Schedule is already published for the dates and agents in the selected schedule scenario. (ER# 176024166)

Found In:  7.6.000.15 Fixed In:  7.6.001.01
