Manage campaigns for several skills

Apply campaigns to adjust the forecast for a specific period when there are events or circumstances that affect the volume or handling time. A campaign can either increase or decrease the volume or handling time.

  • A planned TV ad campaign is expected to cause larger call and chat volumes.

  • A new product is rolled out and the initial support of it is expected to cause longer handling times during the first couple of weeks.

  • A lot of customers are calling in about a known issue and this is expected to continue for the next week but because the agents already know the solution, the calls only take about half as long as they usually do.

The named campaigns can be applied to several skills.

You can see the details of each named campaign when you open the forecast in the web Forecasts tool. In the WFM client Forecasts module, the named campaigns are included in the total campaign percentages.


This feature is available to Calabrio GovSuite users.
