Cockpit List View

When users click the Cockpit tab, the default view is the List View. The List View provides the primary workspace for CSMs to manage their Calls to Action (CTAs) and Tasks. Alternatively, CSMs can view the same information in the Calendar View; or if the Cockpit is configured as its own section in the C360, CSMs can work an individual customer's CTAs and tasks there.  

Cockpit Display Options

In the List View, you will see the following options in the top header:

  1. CTA Filters or Views: My CTAs is the default
  2. Search CTA box
  3. Group CTA by list
  4. Sort CTA by list
  5. Add CTA
  6. Filter: includes default filters for Assignee, Snoozed, Status Report Category, Flagged, Priority, Reason, and CTA Type (Flagged CTAs are also known as Important CTAs)
  7. List View/Calendar View options
  8. Activity drafts
  9. Export CTAs option
