Each UCC has its own settings, interactive voice response questions and Agents with specific skills. Agents can be member of, or sign up to, one or more UCCs.)

Anywhere365 distinguishes two different contact center agents: (1) Formal AgentsA Formal Agent is able to sign in and sign out of the UCC. This can be achieved when the Agent sends a start or stop command to the Skype for Business client of the UCC. and (2) Informal AgentsWhen you create an 'Informal Agent' in the agent list, then this agent will be part of the agent circle as soon as he signs in to his Skype for Business or Teams client. In contrast, by marking the checkbox 'Formal' upon creating a new agent, the agent first has to actively sign in to the UCC to be available for call distribution.. An informal agent is connected to the UCC once he/she is signed in, while a formal agent needs to sign in for an UCC in order to collaborate. The use of formal agents makes it easy to switch between different UCCs by sending commands to the Microsoft Teams or Skype for BusinessSkype for Business is an enterprise software from Microsoft and provides users with instant messaging, online meetings, availabillity information, and audio and video calling.

Single-sign-on makes it possible to sign in to all the UCCs a formal agent works for.
Within Anywhere365 it is possible to create groups that consist of multiple Agents with a similar Skill. Based on the presence status of the individual, a group presence status is created. Furthermore Anywhere365 has the unique ability to give the group a name and add a photo.
PSTN Agents are a new feature in 6.3 that allow you to use a lineURI (e.g., tel:+31612345678) instead of a sipURI as the primary contact for agents (e.g., sip:firstname.lastname@example.org).
With Reason Codes Supervisors have more insight on their Agents presence than with the default Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business presence. By using Reason Codes Agents can define their Busy and Away status. This information will be shown in the Anywhere365 Inflight Snapper and in the Anywhere365 Reports.
With the Remote Presence Change feature, a supervisor in a UCC is capable to change the presence state (available, busy, away) of an Agent in the UCC. Since an Agent can be in more than one UCC and his/her presence is universally applied, the altered presence status affects all other UCCs that this agent might be subscribed to.
Supervisors of a UCC have the opportunity to generate a list of current calls and monitor them, intervene, whisper to an agent, talk as a conference, take over the call and give back the call to an agent. With reporting from a compliance point of view, all supervisor actions can be made visible in the dialogue timeline.
