Additional Information 

With the release of Virtual Contact Center v 9.4.1+, the ability to assign these skills features increased flexibility. The skill levels are now represented with ten numerical values ranging from 10 to 100, in increments 10 (10 is the lowest level, and 100 is the highest).

Skill levels set via the previous Low/Medium/High rating system are mapped with the numerical values below following the upgrade to 9.4.1:

  • Low: 20
  • Medium: 50
  • High: 80
