When you select a Display As type, the Display Format automatically changes to match your selection. For example, the Time display type is down with "hh:mm a" as its display format.

The display formats correspond to the display types:

  • Time - hh:mm a
  • Date and Time - hh:mm a MM/dd/yyyy

You can indicate the initial value to be shown on the Date/Time control. This is optional.

The Custom reporting field is the custom reporting field created for your contact center (if any). Such a field is unique to your contact center, as it is different from any default fields. If you do not have any custom reporting fields, select None from the drop-down list.
