Logging In to or Out of an ACD Queue
This section describes how to log in to or out of an ACD queue. This procedure is performed in the Communications options of the User Preferences screen.
NOTE: This section applies only to users who handle voice calls (Siebel CTI users) and receive inbound calls routed from one or more ACD queues. Logging in to ACD queues is not always necessary for voice call implementations, depending on the switch type. Consult your administrator.
Use the following procedure with the Log In and Log Out buttons on the communications toolbar. Using these buttons, you can log in to or out of all ACD queues designated as primary queues for you, or log in to or out of other communications systems such as Siebel Universal Queuing.
In the Agent Queues list in the User Preferences screen, you can log in to or out of individual queues selectively, including those which are not designated as primary.
For more information, see Using the Communications Toolbar. Administrators can find more information in the section Configuring Communications Log In and Log Out.
