Note: This article references the Next Generation Agent console and not the Classic Agent console. For more information, see Next Generation Agent and Classic Agent. For a training deck on the Next Generation Agent, please see here.

The Next Generation Agent console is the home of the universal inbox where agents handle cases. Cases come from different channels such as Email, Facebook, Twitter, organized into filters. Multiple agents work out of the same console; picking up, handing off, and responding to cases.

Within each case, there are details about the case, the company, and the customer. Agents can also perform searches on cases within the console.
