Workitems, called Open Media by Genesys Digital channels, are documents that might be directed to you for handling. They include many media types, such as faxes or PDFs, that you might have to access while you are handling interactions of another type, such as email.
The Workitem interaction window enables you to access all of the information necessary to handle a workitem.
How do I handle a workitem?
A workitem interaction is the Workspace Agent Desktop interface that lets you handle a workitem document.
To start receiving workitem interactions, set your status on the Workitem channel to Ready.
When you receive a workitem it is either answered automatically, or a pop-up notification is displayed on your desktop to enable you to accept the workitem. When you accept a workitem, the Workitem interaction view opens on your Agent Desktop. It includes all the controls, information about the email (Case Information), and Disposition and Note tabs where you can add information about the document. There might also be tabs on the right side of the view that contain contact information, history, and other features.
The typical actions you can take with a workitem are:
- Click Transfer () to transfer the workitem to another agent.
- Review the associated case data.
- Add a Note.
- Add a Disposition code.
- Mark it as done.
- Move it to your in-progress workbin to work on later.

How can I get help with a workitem?
To get more information or get help with a workitem, try one of the following actions:
- Check the associated case data for information that might help you.
- Call the contact, if your organization has this feature and the contact's number is available in your contacts list.
- Click Consult () to start a consultation with a team member. If you want to perform a warm transfer or a two-step transfer, click Consult to talk to the consultation target and then click Transfer to transfer the call.
Transferring a Workitem
To transfer a workitem that you have accepted, click Transfer (). Team Communicator is displayed. Choose a transfer target. The target must be set up to receive interactions of the type of the workitem. Select <workitem type> Transfer.
If the target accepts the interaction, the interaction window on your desktop closes.
If the target rejects the interaction, the interaction window reopens on your desktop and displays an error that informs you that the target has rejected the interaction.
