The Agent Monitoring page lets you listen in on a call and view an agent’s screen in real time. Use live monitoring to ensure customer service quality and the agents’ proficiency in handling customer contacts and associated tools.
With live audio monitoring, you can hear (but not interact with) any party on a call. With live screen monitoring, you can view an agent’s screen activity, whether or not that agent is on a call. You can monitor only one agent at a time.
NOTE The Smart Desktop Client - Screen Recording Priority field on the QM Global Settings page lets you set where the screen recording takes place (at the thin client or endpoint/PC) when an agent is logged in to both. (See Configure QM global settings.)

Further narrow the list of agents by selecting the Show only connected users or Desktop Client check boxes.
