6.0.1 - How Forced Classification Codes work

Article ID: 51911 - Last Review: April 19, 2013


Because of changes in how Work Timer is configured starting in 6.0.1, the behavior of classification codes is also slightly different.  This article will show the different behaviors and what it would look like in raw ACD data. 

--k records get produced when a classification code is entered.  Generally speaking, every entry of a classification code gets counted in the crediting. So if an agent enters 5 classification codes during a call, all 5 of those codes are going to be credited in reporting.

The only time this will not be true involves the default non-compliant code. When we force classification code entry on work timer and a code isn't entered by the time work timer ends, the call is automatically assigned a default non-compliant code (-1).  With the new work timer we need to pre-emptively produce a non-compliant code as soon as work timer begins, which acts as a placeholder and will be overwritten by the entry of any normal classification code.


1. Classification Code Enforced, but no Classification Code was entered prior to work timer ending:
A --k record with -1 appears immediately following the work timer start L record. Nothing else needs to happen to satisfy the rules of forced Classification Codes. Work timer ends with the M record and the -1 will get processed as the code for this call.

2. Classification Code Enforced, and the agent enters code 6 during work timer:
The first --k record with -1 still appears at the beginning of work timer, immediately after the L record. The agent then enters classification code 6 during work timer. This code will override the -1 non-compliant code. The -1 will not be included in any of the reports in this scenario.

3. Classification Code Enforced, and the agent enters code 3 during the call:
Note that the -1 non-compliant --k record does not appear in this scenario. We only produce that default record in situations where work timer has been entered without a previously entered classification code and classification codes are enforced.
