View adherence information in the schedule editor

Prerequisites

The following permissions:

  • Workforce Management > Historical Adherence > View
  • Workforce Management > Schedule > View

Note: Adherence information is available in the schedule editor only if all the agents in the selected work team are in the same management unit, or if you select just one management unit.

Adherence information does not appear if you select more than one week or more than one management unit.

In View by Day and View by Date Range, you can customize the schedule editor to show agent adherence information for past schedules. When you enable the adherence display, a pink line under the scheduled activities indicates if an agent was out of adherence:

To expand and display adherence exceptions and the activity that generated the exception, click the  next to the agent:

You can also view conformance and adherence columns in the agent area. Depending on the selected view, the displayed columns may change:

  • View by Day shows the Daily Adherence, Daily Conformance, and Weekly Adherence.
  • View by Date Range shows Daily Adherence, Daily Conformance, and Weekly Adherence.
  • View by Week shows Weekly Adherence.
Note: Because analytics may have a backlog of events to process, the system may not be completely accurate for recently completed intervals. It will, however, correct itself over time.

Enable adherence information in the schedule editor

You can choose to show adherence information in the schedule editor. When you enable this setting and then hover over an exception in an agent’s schedule, a pop-up appears and displays the following information:

  • Activity category
  • Agent’s status
  • Agent’s secondary status (if the agent enables a secondary status)
  • The activity’s start and end time
  • Length of the activity

    Note: When enabled, this option identifies how recent the adherence data is for all agents, and is identified by a purple vertical line. It also shows the actual activities that are still considered uncertain due to delay in data refreshing; these activities appear dimmed in the schedule display.
