Role of Dispatch Priority and how to set it
Thursday, December 1, 2016 4:15 PM

The primary use of shared folders in FocalScope is for the day-to-day sharing of emails between agents who share a common job scope or serve a particular type of customer. Personal folders--while allowing a similar functionality through agent views--are intended for emails and tickets addressed (for the most part) directly to individuals. This article details how the Dispatch Priority is used to tailor the system's behavior (specifically, the linking of emails to related tickets), based on which folder type your agents rely on most in their daily use of the system.
