Address Book Interface

If you transfer or initiate an interaction to a skill, you will be connected with an available agent who possesses the selected skill. It is the default tab that appears when you open the address book.|
|Recent (2)||The Recent tab differs in name between the two instances of the address book: when you initiate a new call, it is called History, and when you open the address book to transfer or conference a call, it is called Recent. In both instances, it displays the contacts you have most recently reached|
|Top Hits (3)||The Top Hits tab only appears when you access the address book to transfer or conference a contact. It provides a list of the agents and skills to which your team most often transfers contacts. This filter is channel-specific, so only agents and skills relevant to the interaction type appear. Top Hits is sorted by relevance with the most commonly contacted skill and agents at the top.|
|My Team (4)||The My Team tab displays all of the agents on your team.|
