Mute Ringer while on Another Call

How do you mute your ringer while you are on another call?  This is particularly a problem for users with headsets.  If they are on a call and another call rings in, the ringer blasts right through their headset and they cannot hear their current conversation.  

The majority of our users are taking calls through the softphone on their computers.

This is a major issue for customer service agents and sales representatives who typically have multiple incoming calls at once.

Hello Kelsey,

You might want to check if the call queues are in all rotating calls, so it will not ring their phone in the middle of their phone calls with the client. 

If the issue persist, please create a case and we'll investigate it further. 



Thank you!

These are not exclusively call queue calls -- it is the same problem with direct calls and queue calls.  If you are on a call and another call comes in (directly or through a queue), the ringer blasts through your existing call and disrupts your ability to hear. 

Our business structure requires simultaneous ring for queue calls. 

This is major functionality gap.   I am receiving complaints from dozens upon dozens of users regarding this.
