List View provides users with a consolidated view of all workitems across a specific workbin. Available to both supervisors and agents, the list provides the ability to apply various filters, inline edit various attributes of the workitem, control routing attributes (like assignee), and more. Depending on permissions, users can pull work from a workbin to work in real-time, assign work to other users, and even terminate work to indicate that it was completely processed.

List View shows all workitems in a specified division and workbin. Each row in List View represents a single workitem.

  1. From the sidebar, click List View . The Workitems List appears.
  2. Under Division, select the division for the workbin in which you want to see the workitems.
