The agent dashboard is used by the agents or the person who is responsible for processing and serving tickets at a branch. You can access the agent dashboard from Navigation menu -> Tickets.
The tickets page is as follows:
Indicates the availability of the agents to serve tickets. The status should be ON when the agent is ready to server tickets and should be switched OFF when the agent is away. Every time the agent tuns the Switch ON or OFF it will be logged and shown in the agent's report.
Agents should select the right desk for them, because each desk has a different configuration from the other that includes assigned services and services priority. Also each desk has a label that will be part of the announcement on the TV (Ticket number A001 go to desk X) once a ticket is called. To avoid confusion the selected desk should match the desk that the agent is sitting on.
This is the number of the ticket that the agent is currently serving. The serving time counter is also displayed for the agents to measure time they are spending with the customer.
This is the next ticket to be called by the agent.
The next button calls the next ticket. the ticket will be moved to the current ticket and it will be announced on the TV. If the agent already is serving a ticket (current ticket is not empty), clicking Next will mark the ticket as done and immediately call the next ticket. If the queue is empty (no next ticket) the current ticket will just be marked as done.
The recall button will re-announce the current ticket in the TV. the is no limit on the number of recalls
Marks the current ticket as no-show, when a ticket is called and recalled but the customer doesn't show up, the ticket should be marked as done. It is important to mark tickets as no-show in this case because if the ticket is marked as done it will be considered as a transaction and it will affect the average serving time of the service. For example, for a service it takes around 10 minutes to complete the transaction, and the agents are marking no-show tickets as done while those transactions are around 30 seconds. This will cause inconsistencies in the average serving time with time.
Marks the current ticket as done. When the agent is finished serving the customer he/she should click the done button. Unlike the Next button, the done button will only mark the current ticket as done without calling the next ticket.
The ticket can be transferred to another service and another agent. Agents can also decide whether to place the ticket at the end of the queue as if the customer got a new ticket or queue him/her as next to be served.
