Profile An agent logs on to queue with a profile which contains one or more skills. These skills represents different system queues. Each agent can have several profiles to choose from. The admin defines in the Admin Portal user group profiles (per user group) and optionally personal profiles for selected agents .
Skill A skill is an element that can be added to profiles, and each queue consist of a media type and an ordinary skill. In order for an agent to receive requests from a queue, the profile the agent has logged on with must contain the media type and skill for that queue.
Queue Queues are used to route requests to agents. There are two types of queues: System queues that contain the actual requests, and Display queues that can be used to display the queues in the user interfaces. The standard solution has on Display queue per system queue, and maybe a Display queue that contains several system queues.
Request A request can be a phone call, a chat, an email or come from social media. Any kind of written request can be queued as media type email in the PAA. Requests are sent to agents through queues based on agents' skills and the queues' SLAs.
Service Level Agreement The SLA is a service goal for a system queue, e.g. 30 seconds. A request in queue has at any time a SLA score equal to actual wait time now relative to the SLA. A request that has waited 90 seconds in a queue with SLA=30 has SLA score = 300. When an agent becomes ready and requests are waiting in several queues, the standard solution is that the agent gets the request with the highest SLA score from one of the queues she has skill to answer.
Ticker A Ticker gives real-time statistics information about requests offered and answered in the PAA, so far today or so far this week. Tickers are available for agents, user groups, queues, access points and services.

Display Queue A queue that is visible in the PAA and the Admin Portal. May contain one or more system queues.
