Assigning supervisors to a Call Center

Call Centers can have one or more supervisors who monitor the overall health of the Call Center. Supervisors may have the ability to perform real-time queue management to review the number of calls in queue, wait times, and even reorder calls if needed.

With appropriate licensing, supervisors can manage agent ACD states, move agents to other queues if needed, and reroute calls to specific agents. Supervisors may also have the ability to listen to recorded calls, barge into live calls, and even silently monitor calls.

Visit, and click Login. From the NextOS home page, select Communication > Phone System > Voice Overview > Manage Locations > Actions > Call Center.

Visit, and click Login. From the Nextiva Voice admin dashboard, select Advanced Routing > Call Center Locations > Log In
