The Attributes tab is where you can configure, categorize, and assign attributes to specific users.
An attribute is a characteristic or a skill that can be associated with one, or more agents, with different proficiency levels.
To ensure that attribute-based interaction and contact criteria are reported correctly, it is necessary to add a Reporting component to the flow.
Please follow the steps below to begin using Attributes.
