Create voicemail queues
8x8 Contact Center supports processing voicemails similar to phone calls. Voicemails left for 8x8 Contact Center are directed to a voicemail queue. In turn, the queue offers voicemails to agents based on their skill set and availability.
Configuring a Voicemail queue in 8x8 Configuration Manager involves:
- Defining voicemail queue properties
- Assigning voicemail queue members
- Configuring voicemail delivery message
- Setting up voicemail queue message priority
- Defining voicemail queue SLA
- Configuring voicemail notification
Beginning September 2022, 8x8 Contact Center will be cleaning up voicemails and emails older than six months from queues.
