Contact Center Administrator Guide

Contact

Bright Pattern Contact Center stores information for all contacts, including both the users in your contact center and the external people and organizations that users interact with, on the Agent Desktop application. This information can be accessed in the Agent Desktop application's Contacts section, or in the Active Conversation List's directory. Contact information is displayed in the contact details, activities, calendar events, and cases associated with each contact.

Contact information populates the various fields that are created in Contact forms. The forms are configured in the Contact Center Administrator application, while the form fields are edited in the Form Builder application.

Working with Contact Forms

To create or edit a form, select the Contact option from the root menu of Contact Center Administrator (Configuration > Forms > Contact). The left pane will list the existing forms. Note that forms configured for your contact center are listed in this application, but they are built and edited in the Form Builder application.

For more information about creating forms, see the Form Builder Reference Guide.

Name is the name of the selected form. You can change the name of a form either here or in the Form Builder application.

Type

There are two types of Contact forms: Contact Detail and Contact Preview. Note that the type is added when the new form is created.

The Contact Detail form includes all available information for a person or organization, such as first and last name, title, home/mobile/fax number, email address, physical address, company information, and summary.

The Contact Preview form includes fewer fields, such as name, title, email address, and phone. These fields provide a snapshot of the contact's information.

Default form for this type

Select the checkbox for Default form for this type if this Contact form is to be the default for that specific type (i.e., Preview or Detail).


Client Partitions

To assign the selected Contact form to a client partition, click the Client Partitions tab. This tab displays partitions to which the form is already assigned, and it allows you to change those assignments as well. Click edit to select partitions and assign them to the Contact form.
