WEM Planning Groups and transfers with stripped skills?

    Hi guys

    Apologies if this has been asked before:

    In the scenario where a call is transferred to a queue, in some cases skills are stripped from the call.  In the planning group for the destination queue, if I put both route paths (ie Queue B with Skill B, and Queue B with no skill) how will that actually work in practice?  Does the rule around agents only able to handle a subset of the paths come into play here?

    I'm guessing not as if an agent has the skill, they can handle a call coming in under either scenario, so they'd be able to handle the full planning group?  But if I don't have both route paths in there (leaving out the queue with no skill) then there'll be a shortage of coverage as those transfers won't be included in the forecast and schedule.

    Hi Vaun,

    We've ended up doing this in our WFM config were our Route Path Associations are:

    a) Queue with Skill Set - this catches most interactions coming through Architect

    b) Queue with Skill Set set as <none> - this catches any Queue transfers or Queue direct calls that don't get a Skill assigned by Architect.

    As all agents with the Skill set allocated can also perform the work with no Skill set, it catches both sets of workload.

    Thanks Jeff


    That's exactly what I'd been assuming and how I've done it too.

    Hi Vaun,

    Did support provide reason skills are being stripped for some of the calls?

    I didn't raise a support case on that because that bit is working as designed.
