Customized activity codes help define the activities your organization uses and act as a representation of scheduled activities. Use activity codes wherever you use activity categories.

Note: Activity categories are pre-defined parameters that can be used to identify a specific action of an agent, or as a container for the more customized activity codes. Activity codes allow you to use create and group related activities to better define the actions of your agents.
