Tickets in Queue
On occasion, tickets are directed to the queue instead of an agent. Generally, there
are three reasons why this occurs:
- In order for a ticket to be assigned to an agent, the agent must be logged in to
SmarterTrack and the agent's status must be set to receive tickets for the corresponding
group. If all agents either are logged out or are not receiving tickets, the ticket
will be directed to the queue.
- Administrators have the ability to set ticket limits for agents. If that limit is
reached, new tickets will be sent to the queue until an agent's workload falls below
the set limit. For example, to prevent a company's agent workload from getting out
of hand, the administrator may set SmarterTrack to limit agents to five active tickets.
Once an agent's active ticket load falls below five, the system will assign additional
tickets based on the chosen distribution method.
- If a group is set with the Round Robin - Pull From Queue ticket distribution method, tickets will sit in the queue until selected by an agent versus being automatically assigned to an agent.
