Lets get the usual stuff out of the way. Using IPCC Express Premium 4.0.5 with CM 4.2.3.
I've read through most of the other posts about how skills work inside CSQ's but I'm just having some trouble grasping the concept. I'm used to creating a skill, then a CSQ, then assigning the skill to that CSQ. When it's all said and done, I have (for example) 10 skills and 10 CSQ's.
I don't understand how you "queue" calls to a skill with IPCC Express.
Assume I have the following configured:
Agent 1 - English(5), Spanish(10)
Agent 2 - French(10)
Agent 3 - English(10), Spanish(5), French(7)
I make my CSQ, set it to Most Skilled, add English, French, Spanish to it with competancy levels of 5 for each. My script plays a menu for the customer to choose english, french, spanish. If the customer picks French, how does the CSQ know to route calls to agents 2 or 3 w/ French skills? I must be missing something because I thought you could only queue to a skill with IPCC enterprise.
Could someone lay this out and maybe post a sample script?
Instead of allocating multiple skills to a CSQ you should be allocating single skill per CSQ to accomplish your goal.
So you will have the following skills:
with the following CSQs using Most Skilled Algorithm:
English - skill: English (5)
French - skill: french (5)
Spanish - skill: Spanish (5)
now, let's say you have agents that can handle multiple languages, consider the following agents:
Joe - skills: Eng(10), Fre(5), Spa (5)
Jose - skills: Eng(7), Spa (10)
Mary - skills: Eng(7), Fre(10)
Now a call comes into the call center and a menu is played to press 1 for English, 2 for French, 3 for Spanish, a caller presses 1, assuming all of the available agents are ready the call goes to Joe, the second call will go to either Jose or Mary (longest idle will be used as they are equal skill level).
Let's say another call comes in and a caller presses 3 for Spanish. The first call will be delivered to Jose, and the second call will go to Joe, Mary will not be able to handle these calls as she does not have Spanish skill set.
Similarly for French.
If you start combining multiple skills per CSQ it gets a little bit more complicated, but the same principal applies.
