Create columns for agent information in WFM

Create optional columns to store any information related to the agents. The information stored in optional columns can be used to search or sort agents in People.

Optional columns can be set as dynamic group pages. This means that the agents are divided into groups based on the information in this column. These groups can be used to select agents in many areas of the system, for example in the reports. When values in the optional column change, the related dynamic group pages update automatically to reflect this change.
