Administrators can define and edit team roles (i.e., agent, support manager, supervisor, administrator, etc.), specify unique Talkdesk settings for each team role and assign agents to specific team roles within Talkdesk.
How to Configure Team Roles
To configure team roles follow these steps:
- Log into your Talkdesk account as an Administrator.
- Select the "Admin" section at the top of the page .
- Click the "Roles" tab .
By default, the following team roles are configured:
- Agent: Will only be able to access the "Agent Dashboard" (i.e., "Calls", "Contacts" and "Voicemails"). They will not be able to edit preferences, configure settings or view advanced reports.
- Administrator: Will be able to access the "Administrator Dashboard" (i.e., "Calls", "Contacts", "Voicemails", "Reporting", "Admin" and "AppConnect"), edit preferences and configure settings.
- Supervisor: Will be able to access the "Supervisor Dashboard" (i.e., "Calls", "Contacts", "Voicemails", "Reporting" and "AppConnect" (view access to the apps)). They will not be able to edit preferences or configure settings.
Note: The 'Calls' section was previously called 'Call History' and has been renamed recently.
