From the main menu bar, click Maintenance > Teams. This allows administrators to add or modify teams in the system.
Teams are collections of agents.
Figure 1Teams 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. For more information on Groups, see Groups.
Figure 2Groups 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 teams by name using the search field (Figure 3).
By default, only enabled teams are visible on the Teams page. Click Show Hidden Teams to display all teams. Click Hide Hidden Teams to conceal disabled teams again.
Click the Details icon (ellipses) to display a read-only view of settings for the selected team.
