Account Codes - Java

This article provides information on how to set up and use account codes within Xima CCaaS.

Account Codes allow your Contact Center agents to assign each call they receive a specific account code. Account codes can be whatever you would like them to be. Reasons for the call, client names, numbers, etc.

Configuring Account Codes

Currently, the configuring of account codes will need to be done in the Java version of Xima CCaaS. To do so, navigate to the "Agent Dashboard Configuration" section on the main page of Xima CCaaS.

  1. Select "Account Codes"
  2. You will now see a window displaying your Contact Center agents

There are two ways to add Account Codes; Individually and Bulk Add.

Adding Account Codes Individually

  1. At the bottom of the page select "Add Account Code"
  2. Enter in an Account Code, then hit "OK".
  3. Repeat until you've added all of your desired account codes.

Bulk Add

  1. Open a Notepad Text File
  2. List each Account Code, each on it's own line
  1. Save the Notepad Text File

Once the Notepad Text file is saved, hit "Bulk Add" in the bottom right-hand corner of the Account Code menu.

  1. A window's file will now appear, and you can select your Account Code Notepad Text File.
  2. Hit "Open"

You will now see the list of all of your Account Codes.

Assigning Account Codes

Once you have finished creating your Account Codes, you can now assign them to the Agent Desktop agents.

There are two ways to assign the Account Codes:

Option One:

Once you've created an Account Code, you can now assign it to the desired agents.

  1. As you finish an account code, select the "Blue Person" image to the right of the newly created account code.

You will now see a list of agents' names.

  1. Check the boxes for those that you would like to assign the Account Code
  1. Hit "Apply"
  2. Repeat with each account code

Option Two:

Once you have created your list of Account Codes, you can now assign them to the desired agents.

  1. On the left hand side of the menu, hold the "Ctrl" button down on your keyboard and select the desired agents.
  1. Once you have them selected, you can now select the individual check boxes for each of the desired Account Codes to assign.

Note: If you want to assign all Account Codes to the desired agents, you can select the "Select All/None" button at the bottom of the screen.

Once you select the desired agents/Account Codes, hit "OK."

Freeform Account Codes

Freeform account codes allow an agent to type a custom account code, one that is not available in the drop down list of set options, inside of CCAC. This is not to be confused with "Notes" which is a better option for transcripts or longer entries. A common use for freeform account codes would be customer reference numbers or invoice numbers.

Note: Freeform account codes added by agents will not be added to the list of code selection for future use.

Freeform account codes are disabled by default. To enable freeform account codes, follow these steps:

  1. Open Xima CCaaS
  2. Navigate to "User Management" in the left pane and select "Account Code Configuration" from the menu:
  1. "Check" the checkbox labeled "Allow Freeform Account Codes"
  2. Save your changes

Agents can now enter custom freeform account codes for media in their client.
To do so, the agent will follow these steps:

  1. While a media contact is open (call, chat, etc), select "Codes" in the top left corner
  2. Click on the Account Code drop down list at the bottom.
  3. Select the, now available, "Custom Account Code" option from the list
  4. Type out the custom account code desired in the blank field provided
  5. Select "Post" to apply the account code

Applying Account Codes

When a Contact Center agent is logged into the Contact Center Agent Client (CCAC), they will have the ability to add an account code to any call that they receive.


On the right side of the screen, there will be three tabs.

  • Details - This displays the details of the call
  • Notes - This gives the agent the ability to add notes to a call. (These notes will be visible with the call in Cradle to Grave.)
  • Codes - This is where the agent has the ability to add account codes to the call.

Whether on the call currently, or after the call has finished the agent can apply an account code. To do so, the agent must do the following:

  1. Select the "Codes" tab.
  2. At the bottom of the page, there is a drop down that says "Account Code". The agent can click in that field, and a list of their assigned account codes will appear.
  1. Select the desired Account Code, then select "Post".

The call will now be associated with the selected account code.

Note: An agent can add multiple account codes for each call. Once they post the initial account code, they can then click in the account code field again and select additional account codes.

Finished Calls

If an agent has forgotten to add an account code to a call, they can simply click on the vertical ellipses next to their name at the top of the screen. From there, they can select "View History". This allows them to see a list of their calls. They can then select the call, and will then click on "Codes" to the far right. From there, they can follow the steps to applying an account code.
