Use Case Overview

Story and Business Context

Within any organization, it is inevitable that employees will need to start their daily shift later than planned or leave for the day earlier than planned, for a variety of reasons (such as lateness, doctor's appointment, or illness).

The Lateness Payback feature of the Genesys Workforce Management solution allows a supervisor or an employee to input the period of time for which they will need to be absent, due to starting later or leaving earlier than planned. This time can now be made up by arriving earlier, departing later, or reducing the length of the employee's meal for the affected day or a future day.

Exceptions to be used to define the lateness/early-depature itself must be configured in accordance with:

  • Unpaid
  • Partial Day
  • Breaks-over-Exceptions are NOT allowed
  • Agent Initiated selected with NO date range defined

Assumptions

General Assumptions

Assumptions for PureConnect Cloud customers running Genesys Workforce Management

PureConnect Platform Assumptions:

The dependency use case covers the PureConnect Platform-specific assumptions.

Please be advised that Genesys Back office Scheduling (EE26) is currently not a dependency for this use case for PureConnect. The prerequisites for this use case on PureConnect are Genesys Workforce Management for Voice (EE01) and Genesys Omnichannel Workforce Scheduling (EE02)

  • PureConnect GWFM Connector is required to utilize Genesys WFM on PureConnect

Other Assumptions

The customer has the requirement or desire to use this element of advanced WFM. The Inbound Voice use case is a pre-requisite of the base WFM package, including the definition of Queues, Stats, Agents & Skills. Because the WFM Web Supervisor uses Java, both JRE and Tomcat are requirements. See Supported Operating Environment Guide for specific versions.
