Auto Upgrade
During startup, AltiSupervisor will detect if its version matches with the
version of the OE/ACC or ACM server to be connected. If an older version
is found, the client will be prompted for upgrade permission. If the user
decides to auto upgrade, the AltiSupervisor application is terminated and a
software upgrade session is started. Restart AltiSupervisor to run the newer
version.
Note: For remote AltiSupervisor users outside the firewall, TCP port
10050 is required to be open to allow auto upgrade. Also, auto
upgrade over the Internet requires the sending of 15 MB files over
the WAN, which may take some time to perform the automatic
update.

CHAPTER 2
Getting Started
Logging In
Before you log in
When you launch AltiSupervisor for the first time, you need to know either
the server name or the IP address of the server you’ll be linking to. If you
use the server name and not the IP address, AltiWare/AltiContact Manager
replaces the name with the IP address, eliminating the need of a DNS
(Domain Naming System) search.
To obtain the AltiWare/AltiContact Manager IP address, ask your IT
administrator.
If you are connecting to the Internet through a modem connection, before
you log in, establish a session connection from your PC to your local
Internet Service Provider. If you’re using a low-speed connection, the login
may take some time as a large amount of data is transferred to your desktop.
To log in:
1.
Run the AltiSupervisor application and, if this is the first login to this
AltiWare/AltiContact Manager system, enter the server’s IP address or
name of the system you will be using. If this is not your first login, go
on to the next step.
AltiSupervisor Manual
5
Getting Started
AltiSupervisor is a version of AltiView designed for supervisors of
workgroup agents. Through AltiSupervisor you can monitor the status and
performance of a workgroup, including AltiAgent calls, real time
workgroup statistics, and agent state. This information can be stored in an
internal or external CDR database for future review and analysis.
Figure 1. Logging in
2.
Enter your Extension number and Password assigned to your phone.
Check the Always save password check box to store your login
password the next time you access AltiSupervisor.
Note: AltiServ maintains a counter for each extension to track login
failures. Up to 8 login attempts are allowed, after which login
will be disabled from 1 to 24 hours (depending on the
Adminstrator’s setting).
3.
Select how you want to log in and click OK.
Hiding or Exiting AltiSupervisor
When you minimize the AltiSupervisor desktop by
clicking the Minimize symbol (the dash), it is hidden—
it doesn’t appear anywhere in the Windows desktop
except as a phone icon in the tray in the lower right corner, as discussed
below.
To exit AltiSupervisor entirely, right click the phone icon and select Exit.
Using the Windows Tray Phone Icon
After you log in, the AltiSupervisor icon (a phone) is displayed on the
Windows tray, normally at the bottom right of your screen.
6 AltiSupervisor Manual
If the AltiSupervisor interface is not on your Windows desktop, but this
icon appears in the Windows tray, you double-click it to open the
AltiSupervisor main window, or you can right click it to pop up a menu,
then select the AltiSupervisor window you want to open.
You can resize many AltiSupervisor windows using the standard Windows
method: place the cursor at a window edge or corner, then drag the window
to the size you want.
Also, the field size for any field can be increased or decreased by pointing
the cursor to either side of the field’s main column. The cursor changes to
a movable double bar (||) that can be moved to resize the column.
Call States
AltiWare/AltiContact Manager applications report the status of calls. A list
of the states includes the following:
• AA - the call is being transferred to an Auto Attendant/IVR
• Busy - callee is busy or not available

Viewing Group Statistics
The Group Statistics window displays—for each workgroup—real time
workgroup activity and performance, workgroup performance since
midnight, and a summary of agent data. The statistics displayed are for
workgroup calls only.
These statistics are reset every night at midnight.
Most of the statistics are self-explanatory, but you may wish to note the
following:
•
Wrapup—whether or not to allow wrapup time, and the duration that
can be used to wrap up after hanging up a workgroup call, are
determined in the AltiWare/AltiContact Manager Administrator. The
statistic shows the number of agents that are currently in the wait state.
The Agent Statistics window displays the average wrapup time per
agent.
•
Service level—the percentage of queued calls within the service level
threshold.
AltiSupervisor Manual
11
Using AltiSupervisor
Figure 3. Group Statistics window
•
Average wait time for answered calls—the average amount of time
a caller is in queue before being answered.
•
Average wait time for abandoned calls—the average amount of time
calls were in queue before they were abandoned. Abandoned means
that the caller has hung up before the call was answered.
•
Calls abandoned—the number of calls abandoned since midnight.
•
Average talk time—the average amount of time workgroup agents are
actually talking to callers. The average time per agent is shown in the
Agent Statistics window.
•
Busy—the number of agents whose phones are off hook, or the
extension is in the Forward All Calls or Do Not Disturb state.
Switching Workgroup Views
Click the workgroup extension tab at the bottom of the panel to view
statistics for another workgroup.
