- From the Schedule menu on the toolbar, select Master Schedule.
- From the Master Schedule menu on the toolbar, select Weekly.
- On the Objects pane, select the appropriate item(s) from either the Agents tree (above) or the Activities tree (below); WFM then selects matching item(s) from the other tree.
You can expand business units to display their sites, and you can expand sites to display their teams and agents. You can select multiple sites, teams, and agents, but only one business unit.

You can search the table for particular agents using the Find Agent dialog box. To open it, select Find from the Edit menu or press Ctrl + F.
Reading the data in the table
The Weekly view table contains rows for each agent that you selected in the Objects tree. (If a scroll bar is displayed to the right, you can use it to reveal more agents.) This table includes the following columns:
|[Expand/Collapse]||If in Planning Period mode, the first column provides expand/collapse controls that you use to display or hide agent details.|
|Team||This column lists each agent's team.|
|Agent||Two columns show an icon representing each agent's contract and the agent's name.|
|[Week Start Dates]||If you display agent details and you are in Planning Period mode, the rows below each agent's name indicate the start date for each week in the schedule.|
|[Weekdays]||These cells show agent schedule information for each weekday, for each week in the schedule. The cells' contents correspond to your selection from the Show Data for drop-down list.
If an agent is not scheduled for a shift on this day, the cell will contain Day Off, <name of the full-day time-off type>, Working Hours (for scheduled working hours without a shift), or an exception name (for scheduled full-day exceptions).
An icon in the cell for a weekday indicates whether the schedule has been changed for that agent.
TipIf there have been multiple changes, the icon represents the most recent status.
|Weekly Totals||Shows an agent's total working hours for the displayed week.|
|Planning Period Totals||Shows an agent's total paid hours for the schedule planning period.
TipTo set this period's duration and start date, see the Configuration > Polices > Contracts > Site Settings tab.
The Weekly Totals and Period Totals boxes below the table show a grand total of all weekly or planning period total paid hours (respectively) for all selected agents.
