- What can the Users section do for me?
The Users section of the application has the main function of managing all users in the application and their information. In this section you can create a user account and all the specific user information. You can also lock a user’s account, or delete it if the user is no longer a member of your team.
As an administrator, or a user with administrative permissions, you will have the ability to manage users in the application. The dedicated section for user management has a lot of options you can choose from.
The first four elements you can see on the left next to the navigation bar are the Filter Users field, the existing users list, the column you want to filter agents by, and the Show Inactive Users checkbox. The filter field finds a list of results containing the item you entered. Under the Filter field, QM displays the number of results and the number of pages. You can quickly jump from one page to the other using the forward and back arrows.
Show Inactive Users
Check the Show Inactive Users checkbox and all the inactive users will be displayed on the existing users list.
Beside filtering, you can also rearrange the columns displayed. The first column is Name and it displays the agent's full name. The second column is usually Agent ID, but you can choose another column to show. You have the following options available: Agent ID, Main Group, Supervisor, and Trainer. The arrange option shows the results in the order you want to see them: alphabetically from a > z, or the other way around, depending on the direction the arrow is pointing, up for a > z; down for z > a.
By default, the application will display information regarding the first user from the list.
To save all of your changes, click Save in the upper right hand corner of the page. A confirmation message appears at the bottom of the screen highlighted in green.
To add a new user to the list, click New in the upper right hand side of the page found between Export and Copy. The main page that displayed details about the first user from the list will refresh. Below, you can find an example about how to add information in the application for a new user.

For better management of your agents, it is best to fill in as many details as possible for each user.
