Define a role with granular control

Managing a large number of agents and queues in a contact center can be challenging. 8x8 Contact Center admins can define administrator roles with granular control to administer and manage an individual agents group, a queue, or a channel. For example, if the contact center experience large inbound call volume to the support queue, admins can create an administrator role to configure and manage the support queue exclusively.

The following objects in 8x8 Configuration Manager offer individual settings for role permissions:

  • Agents: allows you to control agents belonging to individual or selective groups
  • Queues: allows you to control an individual queue or selective queues
  • Scripts: allows you to control an individual script or selective scripts
  • Channels: allows you to control an individual channel or selective channels
