Create a budget group

Group skills in a budget group to create a staffing budget for those skills. Put skills that share resources in the same budget group. Resources are shared between two skills when there are agents that have both skills. If an agent gets an absence request approved, the staffing level of all skills within the budget group will be affected, directly or indirectly.

NOTE   Do not include the same skill in more than one budget group. If you do, the agents who belong to this budget group will be counted twice when creating staffing budgets.
