The frontend of LUCS can be customized to your needs. On this page we explain how you can manage widgets and walls as well as change settings of the Frontend to be personalized to your individual taste. Administrators can furthermore 

Widgets and Walls

ADMINSUPERVISORAGENT

Widgets are the key component to customizing the LUCS Frontend to your needs. You can freely place them on your home screen, create additional widget groups to sort them by purpose, time of day or task, or make them available as public walls, which are visible to all users of LUCS (including visitors with no account). We sort our widgets by agent, service and reporting categories to make them easier to distinguish. 

Widgets are accessible to agents, supervisors and administrators, but with adapted functionality to only show what the current user role allows for.

Frontend - Add Widget Popup


Widgets can also be customized to better telegraph the information you need. Learn more about how to add and configure widgets in our Frontend Widgets and Groups section.

Audio Tab

ADMIN

The ‘Audio’ tab allows to upload audio files to get an acoustic notification, to be played if certain thresholds within widgets are reached. This allows users with the rights to see those widgets be notified when without having to observe the wall/widget group directly.

(lightbulb) Common uses for acoustic notifications would be a warning if a certain SLA % threshold is undercut or a notification when a certain number of agents is available. Basically you can customize these thresholds for any measurable value or event when configuring widgets in their respective "thresholds" tab.

(lightbulb) We recommend to keep the jingles and sounds short as the sound will be played in full every time a threshold rule is met!
