Call queues allow you to route incoming calls to a group of users. Call queues are useful for department or group lines that may be answered by multiple people.
There are three call distribution options for call queues:
- Simultaneous: Ring all available members at the same time.
- Sequential: Rings available members one at a time.
- Rotating: Rings available members in a regularly changing order so that calls are distributed evenly.
- Longest idle: Routes calls to the member who has been idle for the longest time (they have not answered a queue call). If the member that has been idle the longest does not answer, the system will rotate to the next member that has been idle for the longest time.
