Note: User Groups

Why does a call center need user groups, how to add agents to them, how to set them up wisely, and where to apply them.

Note: User Groups

When a large number of agents are involved in the work, it’s more convenient to assign not individual agents but entire groups to the queues. User groups are created for easy filtering of reports and management of a large number of agents. Examples of group usage include distribution of users by departments, sales directions, professionalism (skill, specialization), geographical affiliation or organizational feature (department, office or other), etc.

h3>What’s new in Oki-Toki?/h3>
A group accountability mechanism for tasks in callbacks has been added – “group stickiness”, which is an enhancement of the option “Callback Sticky Tasks” for callbacks that can be combined with it. When assigning a task to dialer, you can specify a group of responsible users. For example, if the person responsible for returning the call is not present (sick, run off on vacation, fired), his team will take over. The callback will look for free agents in the selected group. Group stickiness does not conflict with personal stickiness, but can supplement it!This allows you to keep the customer in the right skill group and increase the chance of a successful deal.
