Agent Timeline

The Agent Timeline is an extremely effective supervisor tool. It allows the supervisor to monitor Realtime Agent activity at all times throughout the day. It allows you to see both present as well as past activity. This requires Realtime licenses.

To assure the Realtime licenses are assigned, see Licensed Realtime Agents.

To access the Agent Realtime Timeline, select the Realtime Displays section on the Chronicall main menu and select Agent Timeline.

Selecting Visible Agents

Upon accessing Realtime Agent Timeline for the first time, every agent assigned a Realtime Agent seat will be visible. It is possible to select only specific Realtime agents.

As the Agent Timeline is accessed, in the top left-hand corner of the screen you will find five icons.

Once you select the agents, only the selected agents will appear in the Agent Realtime Timeline.

Sorting the Agents

You can easily sort the agent profiles in four different ways.

Sort by Name - This is default. This sorts agents alphabetically ascending (A-Z)
Sort by Name (Descending) - This sorts agents alphabetically descending (Z-A)
Sort by Extension - This sorts agents by extension chronologically (1-10)
Sort by Extension (Descending) - This sorts agents by extension chronologically descending (10-1)

To select sorting preference, select the "Sorting Dropdown" and select your option.

Agent Profile

The Realtime Agent Timeline profile provides valuable information.

The profile will show you:

  • Agent Name and Extension
  • Their current state (i.e., Idle, Ringing, Dialing, Talking, Hold, etc.)
  • Caller ID - If on a call, if the phone service provider provides the information, we will see who the agent is speaking with
  • Their featured groups - A dot signifies they are logged out, whereas a checkmark signifies they are logged in.

Agent Image
When the agent profile is first displayed, an image will not be present. If you would like to see the agent's image you can add their image by right-clicking on the agent profile.

  • Agent Chat and File Transfer tool

  • Realtime Wallboards

The Timeline

The purpose of the timeline is to provide you the ability to monitor the activity of your agents throughout the day. Another way the timeline helps is through colored bars.

13121312

Each colored bar represents an event that is or was taking place. By hovering over the colored bar you will be able to see which event the color represents. In addition, you will also see:

  • Call Direction
  • Event Duration
  • Associated Group
  • Caller ID

Or, you can select the Realtime Color Legend found in the icons in the top left hand corner.

This will provide the option to see what each color represents.

216216

In addition to seeing which events are represented by which colors, you can change the event color to your personal color choice.

Simply click on the event color and a new color selector will appear. Select your desired event color and hit "OK."

The new color will now be presented in the timeline.

Historical Timeline

In addition to seeing what your agents are doing at the current time, you can also see what was happening historically.

Short Timeframes: If you desire to see a recent past event, (usually same day) simply click and drag to your desired time of day.

480480

Longer Timeframes: If you desire to see time further back, such as another day, you can quickly click on the timeline time bar. A calendar will appear where you can select your desired day and time. Once you've selected your desired day/time, select okay, and the Agent Timeline will feature your selected day/time.

Live Column View

There are two views of the Agent Timeline. First, as previously seen, is the timeline view. The second is the live column view.

To see the Live Column view, select the live column icon in the top left-hand of the screen.

This will display the Agent Timeline as a column format. Each column will represent a different event. As the agents participate in the events, their profile will then appear under the designated event column. As the events change, their profile will move to the new designated event column.
