Monitor Team Members in the Dashboard (iPad Only)
The dashboard feature enables privileged users to view and monitor ongoing sessions, enabling administrative oversight to help manage staff. Based on roles assigned from the Support Teams page of the administrative interface, team leads can monitor team members of a given team, and team managers can monitor both team leads and team members of that team.
If a user is a team manager or team lead of one or more teams, the dashboard pane appears beneath the queue selection pane on the Home tab of the console. In this pane appear any logged-in team members of a lower role for the selected team.
Select a user from the dashboard pane to view any sessions he or she may be running. A Team Manager or Team Lead can take over a support session from another representative of that team by selecting the appropriate session from the queue and tapping the Take Over button. This transfers ownership of that session to the team manager or team lead, with the original user remaining in the session as a participant. A team manager or team lead can also transfer ownership of a support session from one user to another user or team.
Additionally, if configured in the /login interface, a team manager or team lead can monitor team members of a lower role even if there are no ongoing sessions, as long as those user are logged into the console.
An icon signifying monitoring can be displayed in the corner of the user's desktop to indicate that monitoring is taking place. When the user moves the cursor near this icon, it moves to another corner to prevent obscuring the screen. Select the user whose screen you wish to view and then tap the Monitor button. This will open a new page in your console, displaying either the user's entire computer screen or only the console, depending on the administrative settings.
Within a team, a user can administrate only others with roles lower than his or her own. Note, however, that roles apply strictly on a team-by-team basis, so that a user may be able to administrate another user in one team but not be able to administrate that same user in another team.
