Queue and agent group work together. Agent groups are for setting and managing staff, while queues are for configuring parameters in the calling process. A queue without a bound agent group has no use.

Add a queue

When saving an agent group without a queue, the system will remind you of assigning a queue for this group.

Menu on the left advanced → queues, and click add.

Add Queue

Mandatory fields

Queue No.: Made up of numbers, serves as the queue's internal extension within this team, cannot be repeatd.

Queue name: name this queue.

Queue type: for different purposes, can be default and astercc. Default is used more often.

Ring strategy:

  • lastrecent: agent who is being idle for the longest from the last call has the priority.
  • fewestcalls: it rings the agent who has made the least calls first, if he does not answer, it will ring the second least one.
  • randmo: it rings agents randomly.
  • rrmemory: ringing each available interface

Team:which team is using this queue

Agent number announce: Choose a piece of voice message to play before or after announcing the agent number. Before is like “This is agent 2000”, and after is like “2000 agent is speaking”.

MOH: the music playing when the agents are in the queue waiting.

Failover: when the agent has been waiting longer than the queue timeout, it will be transferred to failover: hangup, announcement,IVR, queue, device, ringgroup, voicemail, or play busy tone.

Failover: When you select what failover, select the target here

Agent timeout: when this agent does not pick up the phone within the time, the queue will call the agent holding the next priority.

Retry: After how long will it call the agent again after one timeout.

Max wait time: When the agent wait for this long, the call will be transferred to the failover target.

Allow join empty: When choose yes, even if there is on agent in the queue, the customer can still be waiting in the queue; when choose no, and there is no agent signing in, the caller will be transferred to the failover target.

Wrapup time: When failed to call one agent, for after how long it will call the next agent.

Queue Advanced

Join Announcement: The message play to caller once they join the queue

Agent Announcement: The message play to agent when agent pick up a call

Rate: The message play to agent before they can rate to the agent

Auto-Switch: Can be used to choose a queue automatically

Let's say we have an IVR to ask caller to choose the language, then there's a global variable LANGUAGE=cn, here we put “LANGUAGE=cn”, then system will allow customer to join this queue

How to config IVR so system can choose queue automatically:

config a global variable in IVR

in IVR, transfer choose “Queue”, active id select “Auto Switch”

Add CIDName Prefix: Add a prefix to CallerID Name

Add CIDNum Prefix: Add a number to CallerID Number
