It would be helpful to allow an Admin to log an absent user out from a queue if they forgot to log out.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Allow Admin to set a call queue member to be unavailable to take call queue calls....

We have a small Call Center environment.  We would like for an admin to be able to set a call queue member to be unavailable to take call queue calls if/when that call queue member leaves their desk and forgets to set that for themselves.

We also have a small call center. For us it isn't really practical to pay for the Call Center package, when all we would really need is just one or two small features like this one. I really like the web interface, both on the admin side and the user side. So far it has met most of our needs and there isn't a whole lot more we could ask for.

I feel like this is something that could easily be implemented into the admin interface. Possible in a single update cycle. Maybe put it in the call queue menu, where you can easily see the members' availability, just add an edit status button. I don't know, I'm sure RC's devs could come up with something quickly and easily.

This is definitely functionality we need and seems like a most basic function for an Admin.  Our workaround has been to remove members from the queue to avoid having calls attempt to reach them, but that is very manual and cumbersome.  Ideally, we add this functionality right into the HUD and you can right click on a user name and log them in/out and/or set their status to DND, etc.,  This is truly something that would alleviate the overall administration of the users and streamline call flow.

We are a small US based company with 17 users and I agree that this kind of functionality should be standard for any ACD/PBX solution.  Considering even free PBX distros (FreePBX, PIAF just to name two) include that feature by default, I don't know why a paid service would remove access to it.

We also have a small call center and this feature is very helpful for Admins and Call Queue Managers.

Was there ever any answers to this question?  This function would also be helpful with our call centers.

Hi Jena,

This feature is not yet available. If/when that changes, we will be sure to update this thread :)

Any movement on this as of yet, you have a lot of folks who would like this added.

Hi there, I'd also like to add this could be a very useful feature.  We had a user go on vacation and forget to turn themselves off in the call queue.  This feature would have been helpful if the call queue manager could have handled it instead of having to reset the users password and log in as them.

I'd also like to add this would be a very useful feature.  Hard to understand why this wouldn't be a basic function on the Call Center for a Manager or Super Admin and the request 1st came in 3 years ago.

I agree that this should be escalated - it is a MUCH NEEDED feature that will weigh heavily in our analysis of RC vs. competitors as we approach our next contract renewal this year.

This is a basic function of call center management. When will this be a function of RC?

This is becoming a real nuisance having to disable or remove users from the call queue when they user has forgotten to set their status. Yes, they shouldn't forget, but they're humans and they do forget.

Is there a technical or political reason why this simple feature hasn't been incorporated?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Forcing Status as super Admin.

As a Super Admin user, I think we should be able to force status from unavailable to available and vise versa.  It gives us a chance to see who is away from their desk to push them away or who should be on the phone when doing nothing.  This way reports will be more accurate and help with human error.

Dear RingCentral dev team: The fact that an agent has the ability to switch their participation on and off their queue, and a super admin not being able to see or monitor this, has to be changed ASAP. Sometimes by mistake, sometimes on purpose, it makes que queue environment pointless and technically impossible to improve its performance. Since there are tiers of users with their respective allowances/clearances, the control of unhooking an agent from the queue should not be optional for the agent.

Please understand that this should be top priority. Thanks

I must agree. We're just about to dive in here and this is an extremely important thing.

We are also in great need of this ability. Right now, the only thing we can do to disable someone's queue availability is to change the user's password and log into their Ring Central account on their behalf.
