Enable the Previous MAX Version

Several settings are available for administrators to determine which version of MAX agents use. The Current version corresponds with the most recent major release while Previous is the version that preceded it. If a Summer release was recently deployed, Current will be Summer and Previous will typically be Spring.

Administrators determine the default MAX version for the entire business unitClosed High-level organizational grouping used to manage technical support, billing, and global settings for your CXone environment (either current or previous), then have the option to select individual agents to use a different version. This approach allows the administrator to default all agents to Previous, and assign selected agents to experiment with Current. After the administrator is satisfied with Current, they can update the business unit default to be Current.

For the convenience of the administrator, the Set Default to Previous with Major Release setting determines if a major release will immediately impact the agents’ version of MAX. When a major release is deployed, the mappings for Previous and Current change. For example, before a major release, Current might be Summer and Previous might be Spring. With the major release, Current would be redefined as Fall and Previous becomes Summer. This setting allows the administrator to continue using the exact same MAX version after a major update by automatically moving the Previous, and assign selected agents to experiment with Current. After the administrator is satisfied with Current, they can update the business unit default from Current to Previous.

Intriguing Mysteries, a department in the Classics subsidiary Holmes Enterprises, handles incoming reports of mysterious activities. The department has its own business unit in CXone.

Calls to Intriguing Mysteries increase in warmer weather. Holmes Enterprises does not want agent performance disrupted by new MAX features during that time. The department wants to wait to use the Spring version of MAX until after their high-volume season. That way, agents can continue to use the Fall version they already know.

The Intriguing Mysteries administrator first selects the business Unit settings Set Default to Previous with Major Release and Permit Per-Agent Versioning. He selects a few veteran agents to test the new features, and changes their MAX version in their individual account settings. During these months, the selected agents become comfortable with any new updates to MAX. The administrator can determine whether any training or preparation is required for other agents.

Set Up Custom Workspaces in MAX

You can use custom workspaces to display websites or applications in a pane of MAX. This eliminates the need for agents to manage multiple browser windows. You can give the link to each workspace a custom, descriptive name. Agents can toggle between the custom workspaces you configure and the existing workspaces in MAX. You can configure custom workspaces by business unit or by team. Custom workspaces configured at the team level override those configured on the business unit. You can configure up to 3 custom workspaces. Because MAX uses inline frames to manage custom workspaces, the URL you supply must support being embedded in an HTML inline frame element (iframe). Agents control if they want panels enabled or not in their MAX settings. Off displays screen pops as an external browser page. On displays screen pops inside MAX next to the contact. Note that popped webpages must support being displayed within an iframe in order to be displayed properly inside MAX.
