Transfer emails to a different queue

In 8x8 Contact Center, after accepting an email, you may want to transfer it back to the same queue or another queue to be handled by better skilled agents or to tend to historical handling. You can transfer an email interaction to a different queue after you accept the email and during the wrap up time.
