Enhanced Control on Agent Status

We have offered agents the flexibility to stop new chat interactions and wrap up the chat sessions in progress while handling multi-chat. With this enhancement, agents winding up for the day can block new chat interactions being offered to them and manage the workload better. In the Control Panel, agents are offered Stop New and Resume buttons.


To stop new interactions:

  1. While you are processing chat interactions, your status automatically changes to Busy.
  2. Click Stop New from the Agent ConsoleVirtual Contact Center's browser-based graphical user interface (GUI) used by Agents to manage customer interactions. Control Panel.
    Your status changes to Busy (stop new). While in this state, you are not offered any new chats.
  3. Wrap up the existing chat sessions.
    On wrapping up the last chat session, your status changes to Post Processing, and then to Work Offline, instead of being offered a new chat.

To resume new interactions:

  1. While in Busy (stop new) status, new chat requests are blocked.
    If you wish to resume, click Resume from the Agent Console's Control Panel.
  2. Any queued chat request is offered to you immediately.
    Begin processing chat interactions.
