Password Policies

Your Customer Interaction Center (CIC) administrator creates and assigns Password Policies to users. Password policies determine:

  • How often you must change your CIC password.

  • Minimum password length, number of required unique characters, and whether you can use sequential digits.

  • How often you can reuse a password and other password restrictions.

Note: You need a valid CIC user ID and password to use Interaction Desktop, even if you use your Windows ID and password or other acceptable credentials to log on.

Interaction Desktop interface

Interaction Desktop provides a user interface for easy access to the features of application modules. The interface includes navigation panes, menus, toolbars, Workspace tabs, and a workspace.



Title bar

The title bar appears on the main Interaction Desktop window.


Menu bar

Menus organize the Interaction Desktop commands and actions you can use when working with program modules.


Toolbar area

The Interaction Desktop toolbar area contains several smaller toolbars that you can show or hide.

Note: Individual views can contain their own toolbars.


Standard toolbar

Add new views or workspaces to Interaction Desktop. Use the standard editing tools for cut, copy, paste, and delete in text boxes.


Status toolbar

View or change your Customer Interaction Center (CIC) status. This toolbar also displays how long you have spent in your status. You can add status notes to provide more information about your status.


Workgroup Activation toolbar

Select or clear activation status check boxes for the workgroups to which you belong.


Make Call toolbar

Call by typing a phone number. Lookup and dial a number from your Company Directory by typing part of the contact’s name. Or, click the drop-down arrow to choose from a list of names and numbers you have recently called.


Processes toolbar

Search for and start an Interaction Process.



The selected tab identifies the currently displayed workspace. To switch between workspaces, click a tab.


Navigation Pane

The Navigation Pane provides easy access to the module components in the default workspace or built-in workspaces. Module components appear as views in a workspace.

Note: This feature is reserved for future use. For the CIC client which uses custom workspaces, the Navigation Pane is empty.



The currently displayed workspace.


Status bar

The status bar displays your current connection state, server name, station name, voice mail indicator, and notifications.


Connection state

If disconnected, click this section to reconnect. If connected, point to this section to display your User ID, IC server name, and Session Manager server name. A lock icon indicates that the connection is encrypted.


Remote number

Displays the name of your currently active workstation or your remote number.

Note: If you are using a dynamic remote client connection, the display version of your remote telephone number appears here. If you are using a configured remote station, the phone number entered by the CIC administrator appears here.

The display version of a phone number is the result of conforming your phone number entry to the requirements of the dial plan for your organization or region.

Tip: To change stations, click this section.


Voice mail indicator

If you have one or more unheard voice mail messages, this icon is in color. If the icon appears dimmed, you do not have any voice mail messages.


Show in Mini Mode

To display the CIC client in Mini Mode, click this control.


Notification area

CIC administrators can use client memos to communicate with selected users, workgroups, or roles. The administrator creates these client memos in Interaction Supervisor. These memos appear in the notification area or as desktop pop-ups (toast) in the lower right side of your Windows desktop.

Tip: To display a tooltip that lists all your client memos, point to the notification area.
