From the main menu bar, click Maintenance > Business Units. This allows administrators to add or modify business units in the system.
Business units allow multiple independent groups within an organization to use Clarity Connect while preserving their own separate administrators and data. Each business unit has its own agents, teams, queues, and calendars (Figure 1). Data cannot be accessed across business units except for some administrators and users broken down into groups spanning multiple business units.
Figure 1 Business Units example
Each agent is assigned to a single team and each team is assigned to a single business unit (and thus that agent is assigned to a single business unit as well). Multiple teams can be assigned to a single business unit. Queues are also assigned to a single business unit, and they can be assigned to any number of teams within that business unit if those teams require visibility of that queue.
Groups contain any number of teams, which may either comprise a single business unit or span across multiple business units (Figure 2). For more information, see Groups.
Figure 2 Groups example
If an agent is marked as Eligible for Additional Roles on the Agent Profiles page, that agent can be assigned any role at the team, group, or business unit level (including all business units, allowing them to monitor everyone on the Dashboard). Alternatively, the agent can be authorized as a supervisor for their team so they can manage agent profiles.
Search for existing business units by name using the search field on the Business Units page (Figure 3).
By default, only enabled business units are visible on the Business Units page. Click Show Disabled to display all business units.
If Show Disabled has been used to show all business units, click Hide Disabled to conceal disabled business units again.
Click the Details icon (ellipses) to show a read-only view of settings for the selected business unit.
