Article Summary

The Agent Workspace Homepage is the main window for agents to view and interact with conversations in a brand's workspace. It contains several ancillary functions such as Advanced Search, User System Settings, Main Taskbar, Master System Refresh, Create a New Conversation, Conversation Inbox, Campaigns, Dashboard, Insights and Internal Chat. Each of these functions can be used to monitor activity and performance statistics of the brand's agents and channel streams. Additionally users can adjust settings for all Agent Workspace Modules in the Module Settings section.
