Settings

The Settings tab allows configuration of several items:

  • Allow Simultaneous Login to Multiple Queues – This option allows agents to log in and out of multiple queues separately, provided each queue allows the agent to log in / out.
  • Agent States – Check the Enabled box to enable agents to specify state in addition to logging in and out.  There are seven preconfigured states, only Not Ready can be modified.  Add additional states by entering the state name in the box that says “Start typing to add another unavailable state.”  This can be used to add states like “Training” or “In a Meeting.”  Delete the text from an agent state to remove it.  Click the Save button to apply changes.  NOTE:  Avoid changing position of the states if you want to preserve the meaning of historical data.  Statistics are stored tracked by number, so changes to the order will mean the wrong historical data will be associated with the new state.  Agent states are configured for the entire Business Group – they cannot be configured differently on individual queues.
  • Wrap Up State – When enabled, this option puts the agent in the state “Wrap Up” after he hangs up on an ACD call.   The agent is unavailable for calls while in Wrap Up.  If a maximum wrap up time is specified, the agent will automatically return to the Available state at the end of the specified time.  Maximum wrap up time is specified in seconds. The agent can manually return to the Available state at any time.  Wrap Up State is configured per queue.
  • Disposition Codes – If Wrap Up is enabled, Disposition Codes can be used to force the agent to choose a reason or resolution for the call.  Check the Disposition Codes – Required checkbox to enable disposition codes, then add codes below.  Delete the text from a Disposition Code to remove it.  Click the Save button to apply changes.  NOTE:  Avoid changing position of the codes if you want to preserve the meaning of historical data.  Statistics are stored tracked by number, so changes to the order will mean the wrong historical data will be associated with the new code.  Disposition Codes are configured per queue.

The entirety of this period must be within the last 60 days.  Note that calls will only be included if they started in the specified time period. A call does not have to finish within the specified time period to be included. If a call is passed from one Queue to another, it will be included in the Call Duration Summary report for both Queues.  For ease of use, calls are divided into a number of duration ranges, starting with calls less than one minute long and going up to calls over an hour long.  This information is presented in both a histogram and a table.
