Workforce Management (CXone)

Net Staffing Improved Accuracy
 
Net staffing will have improved accuracy by considering the multiskilled agent's contribution. Net staffing will show agents' partial allocation instead of only the full-time equivalent.
 
For example, you'll schedule an agent who has two skills. When net staffing displays data for one of those skills, it will show 0.5 for that agent instead of 1.
 
In addition, net staffing will gather more specific data from forecasting.
 
This will give you more accurate data in WFM, such as in the Schedule Manager, Intraday, and Approval Rules pages.

Approve Requests Automatically Based on Requirements
 
You will be able to minimize understaffing that comes with approving time-off requests.

This feature will only be available with the WFM Advanced license.
