Smart Agent Assignment
Do you have multiple support agents in multiple departments or that each specialize in supporting a subset of your products? If so, then this extension is tailor-made for you! It allows you to select from 6 different algorithms to intelligently route incoming tickets to the proper support department or personnel.
The default assignment algorithm for new tickets is simple – tickets are assigned to the agent with the least number of open tickets. With this add-on, there are five new algorithms that use a combination of Departments, Products and Agent Availability to control which agent is assigned a ticket.
You can view the entire documentation set to get more information about all the pre-built assignment algorithms.
Working Hours For Agents
Agents can be assigned up to four blocks of working hours – accounting for up to three breaks per shift.
Assign Agents To One Or More Departments
Assign Agents To One Or More Products
The Basic Algorithm
The simplest algorithm included in this extension simply assigns tickets to agents based on departments and working hours. If an agent is not available then the ticket is assigned to any agent with the least number of open tickets.
Please read the entire documentation set to get information about all the pre-built assignment algorithms.
For most users a single algorithm is all that is needed. However, there are situations where you might want to turn off the algorithm and fall-back to the core round-robin algorithm. Or you might want to change the algorithm in use entirely on a ticket by ticket basis. These are advanced scenarios generally employed by the largest help desk operations.
The SMART AGENT add-on supports these scenarios – get more information in the OVERRIDING ALGORITHMS documentation.
