The Logon dialog box enables you to edit and save your preferred authentication details, server connection information, and other startup settings.
Note: If your Customer Interaction Center administrator has enabled the single sign-on feature, the appearance of your Logon dialog box may be different. Contact your CIC administrator for logon instructions.
Tip: Click the Help icon on the Connection or Options tabs if you have questions about any of the required entries.
Logon connection settings
Single sign-on enables you to log on to Interaction Desktop using credentials certified by any identity provider designated by your Customer Interaction Center (CIC) administrator. Typically, you log on to your workstation, a network domain, or some other secure system before you log on to Interaction Desktop. This initial logon procedure prompts you for a user ID and password. Interaction Desktop uses these same credentials to log you on automatically — without prompting you to enter the credentials again.
If your CIC administrator enables the single sign-on feature, the appearance of the Logon dialog box is slightly different, although most of the settings are the same.

Opens the application in full screen mode.
Allows you to specify the user logon name.
Allows you to enter the Customer Interaction Center (CIC) password specified in Interaction Administrator.

Logs on to Interaction Desktop using the credentials entered in the most recent logon, without prompting for logon information.
Opens the Logon dialog box even if you specify user, password, and server parameters.
For example, if the name of your IC server is ICSvr1, your Customer Interaction Center User ID is John.Doe, and your password is PW1234, the command line would read:
You can run Interaction Desktop from a remote location. If you work at home or travel for work, you can receive regular and ACD-routed incoming interactions. You can also use all the other CIC client features.
Logging on remotely is similar to logging on from an office workstation. Pay particular attention to Station Type, Remote Number, and Persistent settings in the Logon dialog box.
