Dynamic documentation and trigger enablement for the Operational Console

Administrators can now benefit from significant usability enhancements in the Genesys Cloud Operational Console. The updated Operational Console page includes dynamic documentation, which helps users view operational event-related troubleshooting details directly from the Event Catalog. Previously, troubleshooting required navigating through static documentation or external resources. With dynamic documentation, users have immediate access to relevant information that helps to streamline the troubleshooting process. Operational events are now integrated into process automation triggers. This feature allows administrators to configure Architect workflows to respond to these events and make the system more responsive and adaptive to operational changes. Also, users of the Operational Console can now multi-select or multi-deselect event definition IDs to filter operational events. This improvement provides greater flexibility and precision in monitoring and managing events.

Manage time-off details in the workforce management Time-off Limits view

Administrators can now directly enter and update the details in the Hours field of the workforce management Time-off Limits view. This new feature makes it easier and more efficient to manage time-off requests and allocations. Previously, administrators had to complete a process that potentially involved multiple steps or separate requests to update their hours. Now, with direct access to the Hours field, the process is simplified and more intuitive. In addition, administrators can now view, filter, and sort the Day and Available Time-Off Hours columns. This enhancement provides a clearer and more organized view of the available time-off limits for each day, which allows for better planning and management of time-off requests.

Trade alternative shifts for enhanced workforce management shift management

Administrators and contact center supervisors can now allow agents to request to trade with the system when they require a short-notice shift change or when other shift trades are unavailable. This feature provides a reliable alternative to manage unexpected scheduling conflicts and offers agents a flexible option to address their immediate needs. Previously, agents relied on shift trades with a colleague. Workforce management evaluates daily the shift combinations generated during schedule generation and then identifies potential trade opportunities based on the updated forecast, staffing requirements, schedule changes, and service goal impacts. This continuous evaluation ensures optimized shift trades for both employee satisfaction and operational efficiency, within the limits configured by the Administrator. Administrators can enable this feature within business unit configuration via the new Alternative shifts tab.
