Agent Information Skills Phone Help


The Supervisor application allows supervisors to monitor and interact with agents and view their performance in real time. You can:

Supervisor works alongside NICE CXone MAX, and you can be logged in to both simultaneously.

You should not run Supervisor and MAX in the same browser as it results in slower performance. Also, the Supervisor ability to coach, monitor, or take over calls supersedes the Auto-Accept setting in MAX. That means calls can be automatically connected even if you disabled the MAX setting.

Key Facts About Supervisor

  • To launch Supervisor, click the grid icon in the upper right corner of the CXone web portal, then click Launch Supervisor.
  • If you cannot see the Launch Supervisor icon, verify your administrator has given you the correct permissions to do so.
  • To use Supervisor and MAX simultaneously, launch them in the same browser. If you launch MAX and Supervisor in different browsers and attempt to perform any telephony functions from Supervisor, another instance of MAX launches in the same browser anyway.
  • To use Supervisor telephony functions, you must configure and connect your agent legClosedAn active piece of a call that connects between routers, gateways, or telephony devices.. If you forget to do so, Supervisor asks you to connect.
  • You cannot perform any telephony functions in Supervisor (such as monitor, coach, barge, or takeover) if you are in an available state in MAX. If your state is Available and you have both Supervisor and MAX open, the agent leg will connect and the incoming contact will automatically be accepted. To avoid this automatic connection and to enable telephony Supervisor functions, remain in an unavailable state.

Agents View

The Agents view is the default view, and displays a listing of all agents you are allowed to see. From this list, you can drill down into a single agent and view detailed information about that agent's current performance. If the agent is actively engaged in a call, you can use this view to record, monitor, coach, barge in on, or take over the call.

Teams View

The Teams view displays agent states organized by team. You can see how many agents are in each state, per team, at a glance. You can drill down to see which agents on the team are in each state and even drill down into individual agents. Your permissions determine which teams you can see.

Contacts View

The Contacts view is available only if Omnichannel Session Handling (OSH) is enabled for a selected agent.

This view displays all of an agent's active contacts in real-time, including information about each contact. If you have the proper permissions, you can use this view to record, monitor, coach, barge in on, or take over an active call.

Active Time is the total amount of time the agent has been handling the contact. It is not the customer's total contact time.

Skills View

The Skills view displays a listing of the skillsClosedUsed to automate delivery of interactions based on agent skills, abilities, and knowledge currently in use.

You can see the SLA percentage, the number of contacts waiting in queue, and the amount of time the contact who has been in the queue the longest has been waiting.

When you drill down into a skill, Supervisor shows you the total number of agents assigned to the skill and the number of agents currently using the skill. The skill's SLA value displays the percentage of interactions that were within the required SLA for the skill. The SLA metric shown here includes active contacts only.

Campaigns View
