Whisper on-hold time in agent's ear

  • 1.  Whisper on-hold time in agent's ear

    Posted 6 days ago

    When an Agent puts a caller on hold, we are being asked to whisper the ongoing hold time in the Agents ear every 30 seconds.   "On-hold 30 seconds", "On hold 60 seconds", etc...

    Has anyone done anything similar?

    Thanks for your input!

    Hi Craig,

    You may be able to do it with custom handlers but not too sure how.
    I have done something similar with hold times recently where we now display a hold-timer for each Interaction on Interaction Connect/Desktop. It ticks every 10 seconds to show the agent how much time the call is on hold. This handler is triggered every-time the call is put on hold and resets once it off hold.
    We are also currently working on alerting the agent, as a popup, once the hold goes over x-seconds.

    It may not be something you are exactly looking for but maybe a starting point.
