Relocated Interaction Transfer Button

In 8x8 8x8 Contact Center, transfer interaction button is now available in the context menu when selecting an element in the Agents or Queues lists. The option is available for blind call transfer to an agent or queue, chat transfer to a queue, or email transfer to a queue.

  4. Select an agent from the list, and click to bring up the context menu.
