  • All agents are added with joined state as TRUE during queue creation.
  • Calls are not routed to the agent even though the agent is available when an agent's joined state is set to FALSE.

For every webex call initiated, you will be provided with a business CLID. This business CLID can either be a call queue phone number or the agents configured phone Number. The agent can decide either to provide this information during a call through persistent configuration or through temporary configuration.

Before you begin

  • The control hub administrator has to enable the phone number of the queue to be used as the outgoing phone number by the agents. For more information, see enable call queue phone numbers.
  • Once the phone number is enabled, the administrator can set the agents outgoing phone number with the specific queue CLID as per Persistent Configuration.
  • The agents can also select Temporary Configuration to use the FAC code #80 for outgoing call center as the phone number displayed as CLID and #81 for outgoing call to show as the personal configured external caller id as the CLID.
