Types of Agent Statuses
Let's explore the two types of Agent Statuses in Aloware Talk: Manual-Defined Statuses and System-Defined Statuses.
Agents can manually set their status to reflect their actions. The user's profile color corresponds to their status. Here are the available Manual-Defined Statuses:
When agents log out, their status automatically becomes Offline, displayed with a grey color indicator. While offline, agents cannot receive inbound calls but can make outbound calls.
The default status where agents can receive inbound and make outbound calls. It is indicated by a green color indicator.
Agents choose Busy when they don't want to be interrupted during important tasks. In this status, agents cannot receive inbound calls, and the status displays a red color indicator.
Agents select On Break when temporarily away from their desks, indicated by a yellow color indicator. This status informs the system that agents are unavailable to receive inbound calls, such as during lunch breaks.
Aloware Talk automatically assigns statuses based on ongoing call activities. The colors represent the current call state. These are the System-Defined Statuses:
When agents are actively engaged in a call, their status becomes On-Call. Agents cannot receive inbound calls during this time, and the indicator color is light blue.
When agents receive an inbound call, Aloware Talk sets their status to Ringing. The phone rings, but the call is not yet connected. The indicator color is light green.
After completing a call, agents enter the Wrap-Up status. They can perform post-call tasks, such as note-taking or updating customer information. During Wrap-Up, agents cannot receive inbound calls, and the indicator color is yellow.
Turn Notifications Off
Agents can enable the "Turn Notifications Off" feature to temporarily hide notifications across various communication channels, including in-app, desktop, mobile, email, and text messages. This feature ensures uninterrupted work time by minimizing distractions.
