Assign Email Queue Members

When you assign members to an email queue, you allow the members to receive emails that enter the queue. The queue uses skill-based routing to route the emails based on the agents' skill sets. An agent with a higher skill level receives an interaction before an agent with a lower skill level does. Go to Queues/Skills > Email > Members to add, modify, or remove agents.

To assign members to an email queue:

  1. From the Configuration Menu, open Queues/Skills.
  2. Find the email queue you wish to assign members to, and click .
  3. Go to the Members tab.
  4. Select Assign All to assign all agents to the queue.
    OR
    Select Agents assigned to choose the desired agents only.
  5. Click the Skill level for the agent serving the queue.
    The skill level can be selected from 10 to 100 (lowest to highest).

    The following table summarizes the options under Queues/Skills > Email > Members:

    Members Tab OptionDescription

    Enable AllTo activate routing of interactions from this queue to all agents assigned to the queue.
    AgentsFor the selected queue, in the list of agents:
    • Select Assign All to assign all agents to the queue.
    • Select an individual agent to add that agent to the queue.
    Skill LevelIndicates the skill level of the agent for that queue. The skill level determines the routing of interactions within a queue. Virtual Contact Center attempts to direct interactions to an agent with a higher skill level before directing them to an agent with a lower skill level. Skill levels are now indicated by ten numerical values ranging from 10 to 100 with an increment of 10, with 10 being the lowest value and 100 being the highest. Assign the agent's skill level from the drop-down menu of options.
