Description

Build 7.5

 

 

Use the new Administration > Organization tab to manage your application users, such as analysts and report users. Your application users are automatically migrated into Workforce Intelligence version 7.5.

  • Analysts that are migrated from version 7.4.1 are set up as both Report Users and Analysts and have access to shift updates. If you do not want migrated Analysts to have access to shift updates, you must manually make that change.
  • Inactive users are migrated from version 7.4.1 in the event that you want to activate them again. If you choose to activate an inactive user, that user receives the invitation email.
  • Any user who has Admin privileges can now see the entire hierarchy.

For more information see the Pega Workforce Intelligence Administration Guide.

These changes replace the Profile Management page.

 

Improves authentication to provide better security. Users are prompted to update their passwords when they first log on to version 7.5.

 

Adds a new interface for logging in and changing your password. The Forgot Password window has also changed.

 

Improves the interface to make it easier to create and edit application user information.

 

Adds enhanced rules to mask credit card numbers for the following credit cards:

  • American Express
  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Discover

  • Diners Club International / Carte Blanche
  • Diners Club United States and Canada (MasterCard co-branding)
  • JCB

Use the new Application Summary API to retrieve information about how your business units use applications. You can aggregate this information by any level that is established in your hierarchy. This API is only accessible by using OAuth.

BUG-435144

To provide you with more insights to your workplace, you can now perform the following tasks:

  • View a list of bounded and task-based workflows.

  • Monitor specific application usage within a workflow.

  • Identify steps based on the production or other work applications and screens.

  • View contributors to waste at the workflow and step levels.

  • View user behavior at the workflow and step level.

  • Compare path variations.

 

To make it easier to manage your organization's hierarchy, you can now use the Administration tab to perform the following tasks:

  • Manage the production goals and parent organizations for each business unit.

  • Create, update, move, and disable teams and departments.

  • View the most recent shift for users.

 

Workforce Intelligence administrators can now manage Runtime client configurations directly from the Administration tab.

To manage the client configuration, you must use Robotic Automation Runtime version 8.0 SP1 2020 or later.

Build 7.3.2

 

 

Adds an Exports option to the Analysis tab so you have access to export data from within Workforce Intelligence. You can then open this data in a spreadsheet to do additional analysis.

For more information, see Viewing export data.

 

Adds support for handling multiple shifts on the same day. The total hours and score are based on the total shift time. The Timeline page shows all shift segments. In this release you can add, edit, and delete shift information for an associate and show any pending changes.

For more information, see Updating Shift Information.

Build 7.3.1

 
 

Adds Legacy opportunities, which you can assign to applications that you are replacing or evaluating to see how much time users are spending in these applications. This information helps you to decide when to sunset the legacy application and monitor the transition to the replacement application.

For more information, see Types of opportunities.

 

Adds parallel sessions, which you can use to combine user sessions to get all information for that user level and more accurate results. There are the following scenarios:

  • Sessions that run on the same physical machine, such as when one of the sessions is virtual and one is remote.

  • Sessions that run on different physical machines, such as when an employee works on several machines.

  • Any number of sessions that might run in parallel. For example, if a user is working on two different physical machines and has virtual sessions running on each of these physical machines, there could potentially be four sessions running in parallel.

For more information, see Parallel sessions.

Build 7.3

 

 

Adds a redesigned Opportunity Finder page that makes it easier to filter information by opportunity type, application, business unit, or minimum savings amount. On the Opportunity Details page, you can now see the trend of savings over time, a breakdown of savings by application, an enhanced timeline view of the entire day for the associate, and where the opportunity occurred. Using the Opportunity Details page, you can now compare departments, teams, and associates to understand how each are affected.

For more information, see Find opportunities and operational insights

 

Adds the Idle Time opportunity based on user input. Use this opportunity type to identify which associates accumulate the most idle time. Pega Workforce Intelligence also tells you whether that idle time was true idle time or was the associate being away from the computer for an extended period of time.

BUG-346477

Changes the system to now classify IdleCancelled as an Idle event. For instance, if a user clicks Cancel instead of entering an Off-Computer Code, the time is now recorded as an idle event and displays as Away in the Idle Time opportunity. Pega Workforce Intelligence adjusts totals from prior periods to reflect this change.

BUG-317602

Adds the ability to integrate with Pega Customer Service and Pega Sales Automation.

Build 3.1.1.32

 

 

Adds the ability to mark applications, screens, or pages as Noise and ignore them for sequence and set-based opportunities.

For more information, see the Pega Workforce Intelligence Administration Guide.

BUG-274432
