Cisco Finesse Desktop Tabs for Supervisors

This came up on this thread and figured I would post something about it is an easy mistake. The Finesse layout is devided into an Agent and Supervisor section. So adding a tab to the top of the default layout will only add it to the Agent view. You can tell the layouts apart by the following tags:

<layout>
    <role>Agent</role>
    <page>

</layout>

or

<layout>
    <role>Supervisor</role>
    <page>
</layout>

Find the total number of attributes and skillgroups in an agent team.

With the new 9.x release and the popularity of Finesse I’m seeing a lot more cases of latency/timeouts from the Finesse desktop.  A lot of these have been attributed to network issues, but I still feel that Finesse has been made way too sensitive to the network.  Makes me yearn for the good old days of CTIOS.  One thing which came up recently is to find out how many skillgroups and attributes/PQs an agent team has.  As the SRND alludes that having too many SG/PQs (>50) in a team will cause performance issues.  The following two queries will give you the total count of unique attributes and skillgroups in an agent team, all you need to do is know your agent team ID.

Attributes

SELECT count(distinct(awdb.dbo.t_Agent_Attribute.AttributeID)), COUNT(awdb.dbo.t_Agent_Attribute.AttributeID) FROM awdb.dbo.t_Agent_Attribute INNER JOIN t_Agent_Team_Member ON (t_Agent_Attribute.SkillTargetID = t_Agent_Team_Member.SkillTargetID)
WHERE t_Agent_Team_Member.AgentTeamID = ‘XYZ’

Skillgroups

SELECT count(distinct(awdb.dbo.t_Agent_Attribute.AttributeID)), COUNT(awdb.dbo.t_Agent_Attribute.AttributeID) FROM awdb.dbo.t_Agent_Attribute INNER JOIN t_Agent_Team_Member ON (t_Agent_Attribute.SkillTargetID = t_Agent_Team_Member.SkillTargetID)
WHERE t_Agent_Team_Member.AgentTeamID = ‘XYZ’

Cisco WebView Agent Reports Contain No Data

So, this has happened to me on at least three projects and honestly I can never remember to check this before the project starts. Reporting always seems to be a bit of an issue at first. Most call centers aren’t used to the amounts of data Cisco provides and others just don’t like the way WebView presents its information. Either way, missing data is never good.

One issue that I seem to run into a lot is the agent reports showing up blank with just the columns and no data under the columns. This Cisco document explains how to solve that issue. However, the above document was not the only issue I’ve had in the past when trying to get agent data reports. The other issues has to do with not having any agent distributors. Which is something very easy to overlook… at least for me.

Two things to note about the above screen. First, for most duplex environment you will have two distributors, your AW/HDSes. Second, who uses names like fff and icmipcc for distributors? :-)
