Integrated call center schedule exceptions calendar
In order to effectively manage the daily agent exceptions to schedules, within the intraday option in Monet is the Exception tab. This is where the manager uses a running total for noting the daily exceptions. Displayed here are two exceptions.
In the first example the agent called in and said that they would be an hour later to their scheduled start time because of auto trouble. This was noted using both the time he was going to be delayed as well as the reason and an exception code. In the second example this agent called in and said they were not going to be available at all because they were sick. So as you can see, today's exception tab becomes a running total of the exceptions for today. And in each case adjustments are made to both the current requirements and the current assigned columns for the agents.
