The Agents view is the default view, and displays a listing of all agents . From this list, you can drill down into a single agent and view detailed information about that agent's current performance. If the agent is actively engaged in a call, you can use this view to record, monitor, coach, barge in on, or take over the call.
From this view, you can see the length of time the agent has been in the current state The availability status of an agent.. The timer resets when the agent's state changes. However, the Time In State value is not necessarily the time the agent has been handling the same contact. If the agent is handling automated outbound calls, the agent's state might span multiple contacts.
The Teams view displays agent states organized by team. You can see how many agents are in each state, per team, at a glance. You can drill down to see which agents on the team are in each state and even drill down into individual agents.
The Contacts view is available only if Omnichannel Session Handling (OSH) is enabled for a selected agent.
This view displays all of an agent's active contacts in real-time, including information about each contact. If you have the proper permissions, you can use this view to record, monitor, coach, barge in on, or take over an active call.
Active Time is the total amount of time the agent has been handling the contact. It is not the customer's total contact time.
The Skills view displays a listing of the skills Used to automate delivery of interactions based on agent skills, abilities, and knowledge currently in use. It separates the skills into those that are meeting service-level agreement (SLA) Commitment between a service provider and a customer with a defined service level threshold, including quality, availability, and responsibilities. requirements and those that are not. You can see the SLA percentage, the number of contacts waiting in queue, and the amount of time the contact who has been in the queue the longest has been waiting.
When you drill down into a skill, Supervisor shows you the total number of agents assigned to the skill and the number of agents currently using the skill. The skill's SLA value displays the percentage of interactions that were within the required SLA for the skill. The SLA metric shown here includes active contacts only.
You can also see an interactive line graph showing SLA percentages hour-by-hour for the skill for the current day. You can hover over this SLA Trend Line to see the SLA percentage at each hour of the current day. The date and time used by the SLA Trend Line is based on your browser's date and time.

You can see the SLA percentage, the number of contacts waiting in queue, and the amount of time the contact who has been in queue the longest has been waiting.
