Viewing a customized wallboard


The Bright Pattern Wallboard User Guide is intended for agents, supervisors, and managers of the Bright Pattern Contact Center-based call center who will use the Bright Pattern Contact Center applications to perform daily agent supervision and campaign management tasks. Readers of this guide must have the privilege of editing and sharing wallboard displays in your contact center. In addition, readers of this guide are expected to be familiar with basic operations with Internet applications.

Wallboard Overview

The Wallboard is a grid displaying various widgets that contain metrics, statistics, news, and other specific information in real-time. The wallboard’s primary purpose is to allow you to monitor important areas of work in one convenient location.

Viewing a wallboard

The information displayed on your wallboard is usually configured by your administrators; it is accessible by users with permission (agents, supervisors, administrators, etc.) and permission is given by your administrators. You will also need additional permission to edit or customize wallboards.

All aspects of the wallboard may be edited including the wallboard title, widget type and title, size of card, color theme, etc. Additionally, after creating custom wallboards, they can be pushed to global by authorized users. The Push/Pull functionality allows wallboards to be shared.

Accessing the Wallboard

There are two ways you may access the wallboard:

  1. Directly via URL (i.e., your_contact_center_domain/wallboard); in this case, explicit login info will be required
  2. From Agent Desktop, click the wallboard icon Wallboard-Icon-50.png; the wallboard will appear in a separate browser tab or window.

Please note: If the wallboard view does not appear, check your browser pop-up blocker and allow the pop-ups. If pop-ups are allowed and you are still having trouble accessing the wallboard application, contact your system administrator regarding your user privileges.


Users may edit a wallboard’s layout when granted the privilege Customize Wallboards. Privileges are granted by system administrators of your contact center from the Configuration > Users & Teams > Roles > Properties section of the Contact Center Administrator application.

If you are not sure if you have the privilege to edit wallboards, see your system administrator.

Additional Features

The following are features that make wallboard creation and management a user-friendly experience:

Single sign-on

Viewing the wallboard doesn't require any special login; when working on Agent Desktop, click the wallboard icon Wallboard-Icon-50.png and the wallboard will open in a separate window or browser tab.

In-Menu search

In the metric selector drop-down menu, it is now possible to search for the desired metric using any element of its name.

Utilize the in-menu search to quickly find the desired metric

Rotating Screens

If you have created or have access to more than one wallboard, it is possible to rotate between them either manually or configure your system to do so automatically. Enabling automatic wallboard rotation causes periodic refreshment on your screen of all wallboards you have created or imported.

Manual Screen Rotation

To manually rotate between wallboard screens, use either the Wallboard-Selector-Arrow-316.png Wallboard selector for selecting a personal or global wallboard or the Wallboard-LR-Arrows-316.png Navigation arrows for flipping from one wallboard to the next.

Automatic Screen Rotation

To enable wallboard screens to automatically rotate, take the following steps:

  1. Click the menu Wallboard-Menu-Button-52.PNG button
  2. Select Rotation
  3. Select the Enabled checkbox
  4. Select which wallboards you would like included in the rotation
  5. Enter the interval (in seconds) that you would like your screens to rotate at
  6. Click OK

To disable automatic screen rotation, simply return to the Rotation menu option and uncheck the Enabled box.

List of Wallboard Metrics

Wallboards provide a visual display real-time statistics. These statistics, or metrics, are what populate the widgets.

There are many metrics to choose from when deciding what to add to your wallboard widgets. The following is a small sample of the types of statistics that can be included:

Real-time metrics names often have several variations depending on where they appear in Agent Desktop; the Wallboard names will be listed under the main real-time metric name. For a complete list of these statistics including definitions, see All Real-time Metrics in the Reporting Reference Guide. Information About Real-time Metrics, also located in the Reporting Reference Guide, provides general details about how these metrics function.
