Frontend Customization and Settings
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.
Widgets and Walls
Widgets are the key component to customizing the Stratus Agent 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 Stratus Agent (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.
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.
Via the Frontend you can directly access the settings. This opens a pop-up configuration tabs. These will be explained in the following chapters.
Normal users may only adjust their own settings. Administrators have access to further configuration options as described below.
Format of time in the widgets grid:
Allows to enable/disable automatic reordering of widgets on the page.
Disallows widgets to change their positions after resizing widgets, the browser window or changing the screen resolution.
We recommend leaving this disabled so widgets attempt to stay fully visible within the given space.
Allows selecting specific language for the application. Affects the whole application for the currently logged in user: widgets, walls, ‘Application Settings’ pop-up etc.
Changes colors of fonts and controls.
Allows you to upload a custom wallpaper as background (set on repeat if your desktop / scrollbar extends the size)
The wallpaper will only be visible to your user.
The ‘Application’ tab is available to System Administrators and allows to apply corporate branding to the Login page.
‘Application’ tab contains the following controls:
Allows you to upload a customized picture/logo
Short customized description
The ‘Support’ tab allows to include the company’s support information. The goal is for Admins to provide Agents and Users with a possibility to contact internal IT support when a problem arises.
The provided details will be shown in the ‘Support’ tab of the ‘Information’ pop-up.
‘Support’ tab contains the following controls:
Name of the internal support addresses. Can be a SIP-, E-Mail-Address or Phone number
MAX LENGTH: 20
Sip:<sipaddress>, tell:<phonenumber>, <emailaddress> is available to use as value
MAX LENGTH: 40 address or 20 digit number
Provide values in a format as follows:
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.
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.
We recommend to keep the jingles and sounds short as the sound will be played in full every time a threshold rule is met!
‘Audio’ tab contains the following controls:
Allows selecting an audio file for uploading to the preview area.
Allows to listen to uploaded audio files
The ‘SLA’ tab is available for the System Administrator and allows to configure a formula to calculate SLA.
The selected formula is used across all widgets in Frontend.
