Queue Calls

Queue call activity - Call Queues enable calls to be queued, instead of them going unanswered, whilst agents are on a call, e.g. calls to a sales number are routed to a call queue, where callers are kept in the queue until the next sales person is available to respond.

Important: Queue members must be logged in a call queue to start answering calls. You can configure queue member extensions to automatically log out by enabling their Forwarding Rules > Statuses > Log out from queues option for each status profile, or disable to allow users to log in manually.

Go to menu Settings and select Personalize > Wallboard - Select the queues you want to monitor. Agent information of the selected queues will be displayed in the Queue section of the Switchboard menu.

The Wallboard gets current call states based on real-time statistics. Wallboard is specific for every agent who is logged in some queue(s). If you are a member of 1 queue, you will see the statistics of that queue. If you are a member of multiple queues, all statistics will be added together - summed statistic.

Agent can be logged in one, and log out in other queue - Queue status is on the right upper corner, next to Avatar.
