Is it possible to brand the Finesse login page with customer specific logo/wording?  Not the desktop itself post-login, but the login page itself.

Hi Erik,

 

Yes, its possible by replacing the image from Finesse root. Refer to attach image for understanding.

 

 

thanks and regards,

Great thanks. Is the process documented somewhere?  I've not been able to find it.

Hi @Erik Peterson  As stated, the changes are only possible through root hence not documented publicly. Reach to TAC during your working hours.

 

thanks and regards,

@ritdesai , thank you for sharing. For the change in the login page logo, is that only certain versions, like 12.6, or potentially other older versions as well? And is there a defect or case or documentation where this is listed that we can refer to when we open the case?

Hi @bill.king1 , confused as you referred to "logo". Are you asking logo that is visible post login on top left or background image on finesse agent login page like i have attached in the above response to @Erik Peterson 
Having organizations background image has been requested by many organizations for branding, agent and organization experience. This is not defect. This post can be referred in future when you in need of same feature. Have checked on v12.5 & 12.6 finesse versions. Should be also feasible on 12.0 versions.

thanks and regards,

Agents who are on a break receive "Not Ready-CTI Connection Failure on their Finesse Desktop" 

They are able to change the reason to "Not Ready" or "Ready" once they are back.

 

Because of this, their metrics are affected. Already did checked on Finesse, there is no Failover or any other issues.

 

Hello @AnoopKrishnan123 

 

Error clearly state, the cti connection failure. You trace the root cause, are agents locking the system while they on break, look into CUCM syslog if any ip phone reporting failure events, agent event table Reason code tagged to agent skilltargetID or agent report state, "system defined errors codes". System defined error codes like 32xxx, 500xx, 65xxx. If yes, then you can refer to URL for understanding of the respective reason codes.

BOSCH failure between agent machines to Finesse server would loose connections and certainly system would report cti failure. BOSCH connection failure can be seen in finesse console logs.

 

Understanding of BOSCH communication is available at;

Hello @AnoopKrishnan123 - Adding to the above you can check with not ready reason codes which they are getting moved as well. Either it might be due to connection failure or device timeout.  you can get the results by executing the Not ready historical report in CUIC if you know the agent's details. Else you can execute the below query which will get you complete details of the agent's ID.

 

Select AE.SkillTargetID,AE.LoginDateTime,AE.DateTime,AE.Duration,AE.DbDateTime

,AE.ReasonCode,A.EnterpriseName

From Agent_Event_Detail AS AE,Agent As A where A.SkillTargetID = AE.SkillTargetID and AE.ReasonCode IN ( '50002','50003','32767') and AE.DateTime > :Start_Date

I'd like to build our contact center using current users from that team but I run into the problem of them not being allowed to have multiple lines and be a Contact Center agent. So I'm struggling with how to set it all up before we go live to allow for training unless I just have to re-assign extensions to everyone.

Hello Robert,

Can you get me a few more details on what problem you are facing for the multi-line? If you have configured the CUCM PG, Share with me the output from the procmon tool for the device_config also share with me the output of select * from [dbo].[t_Peripheral.

Also what is the version of the ucce you are trying to build.
