Synchronize Webex App states with Webex Contact Center idle codes

An agent can have different presence statuses in the Webex App and Webex Contact Center as per the agent's current activity. Administrator can configure presence synchronization so that the agent's presence is automatically updated across both the platforms, lowering the chances of RONA. Agents are no longer required to manually indicate themselves as unavailable when engaged in non-contact center activities. For example, if an agent is busy on a customer call in the Contact Center, the agent's status is automatically synchronized in the Webex App. Other employees in that tenant see the Agent as busy in call.

When synchronizing states between the Webex App and Webex Contact Center, there may be a slight delay. Due to various factors such as network latency and system load, it can take up to 2 seconds for changes to fully propagate and synchronize across both platforms.

To synchronize agent's presence state between both the applications, administrator maps the Webex App states with the Webex Contact Center idle codes. The mapping is used to prevent routing Contact Center calls to the Agent when Agent is busy outside of Contact Center. These states can be mapped to the Webex Contact Center idle codes such as Available, Do not sync, or System Idle Code.

  • If you have Microsoft integration enabled, then you have to disable it at tenant level in order to use the Webex application.
  • If you're experiencing issues like presence state in Webex is not getting updated on Agent Desktop or vice versa, provide an error report from your Webex Agent Desktop application. Detailed steps on how to download the error report can be found at the following link: Ensure that the report is generated soon after experiencing the issue, as this will provide the most relevant data.
