Custom agent availability status enables admins to create custom away statuses based on the activities of their agents. For example, you can create statuses like ‘Team huddle’, ‘Onsite’ apart from the 4 custom statuses provided by Freshcaller — Lunch, Break, Meeting, Training.
How does this affect agent availability for calls?
All custom statuses denote that the agent is away and hence, they will not receive calls if they choose a custom status.
How to create a new custom agent status
You can find ‘Agent Statuses’ on the Admin menu of Freshcaller. Once you click on it, you’ll be taken to the Agent Status screen where your existing custom statuses and default statuses will be displayed. Admins can enable or disable statuses for agents from this screen.
To create a new custom status, click on New Agent Status.
Apart from naming the new status, you can also assign an emoji/icon to it.
Admins can edit an existing custom status and also change the emoji or icon associated with it.
The custom statuses will reflect along with the default statuses on the Live Dashboard. Supervisors can filter agents based on these custom statuses too.
How can an agent switch to a custom status?
The custom statuses will be listed along with existing default statuses. Agents can select custom statuses enabled for them by the admin.
