Welcome to the Workforce Management (WFM) Supervisor Help. It provides a comprehensive guide to the features and functions of the latest WFM Supervisor Forecast interface.

Site supervisors use a web browser to log in to WFM's Supervisor application and forecast staffing requirements, based on service objectives and historical data. See Logging in and out.

Security features

WFM Web includes security features that prevent unauthorized access to information. You can view and make changes only to those modules and objects (such as business units or sites) for which you have security access. You cannot access other modules or objects.

Using multiple browser windows

If you are using Mozilla Firefox, Genesys recommends that you not run WFM Web in more than one browser window on the same workstation, because doing so can cause the application to behave in unexpected ways.

Setting the clock

WFM Web for Supervisors picks up the regional settings or locale from the browser language settings. You may wish to change this if, for example, WFM Web appears in a 12-hour format and you want to view a 24-hour format.
