    While the agent is on queue or in lunch/break Purecloud changes him automatically to available. What would cause that, and solutions for troubleshooting?

    There is not an automated change mechanism in Genesys Cloud.  It has to be a supervisor or the user changing the status unless they are on-queue and they don't take a call, then they go off-queue and go into not responding.   Now, if they are on-queue and take themselves off-queue, it will revert back to their previous status.  There are ideas to allow automatic status changes based on agent schedules, but that is not in development yet.  

    If you want to investigate, gather the console log around the time they have the change happen.  Sometimes it can be due to multiple instances being run at the same time.

    Something else that we found was the case here, is power saving modes on the device.
    If the connections is dropped to the edge, when it re-connects it puts the agent in the available state.

    So we found a few hidden power saving settings that needed some pokery in registry to enable, to ensure the devices are not sleeping the network adapters to save power when the device is locked which in any other case would be a feature.

    We have found the same thing, that this is because of the sleep timer in the computer, but it definitely is not happening by Supervisor intervention or because of a missed call.

    This has happened to our team for years, in fact have a nurse that it happened to last night while on her meal break. We think that a quick internet blip might the main cause of it. Additionally, if specific steps are not followed, we find that an agent will randomly be logged in during the middle of the night! We have very specific directions for how to go to breaks, meals, etc which significantly decreased the occurrence. 

    Our detailed steps:

    Steps for changing ALL statuses but for simplicity only listing breaks/meals here (This includes meetings, training, etc)

    #1 Log In as 'available'

    #2 Go 'on queue'

    #3 When going to break or meal

    • Go to 'available'
    • Then go to 'break/meal'

    #4 When coming back from break/meal

    • Go to 'available'
    • Then go back 'on queue'

    #5 When logging out for the day

    • Go to 'available'
    • Then 'log out'

    I reported previously that this happens in our organization as well, this week, when the status is being changed it changed to Available for 1 second, then On Queue for 1 second.  Then it is forces the agent into Not Responding because they miss the call.   See all of the changes in such a short period of time.   ??
    First report is the User Detail Report.  Second report is the Agent Status report and that is showign that the report is actually showing the agent in the same status, which is not correct.   

    The issue is that I use this report to pay my vendor and I take their ACD time subtract the Not Responding time and pay them for that time.    Is she is on Meal, that is already accounted for and I will not be paying them correctly.

    Does anyone have any additional information on this?  Or are you experiencing the same issue?

    Hi Anton - Can you share what those hidden power settings are? We are having the same issue and we've changed all the available power options with no luck.

    Hi Carlos,


    There are some advanced settings that are hidden and require a registry change

    In reg that is 


    Set the DWORD attribute to 2

    Now when you go to power settings under Sleep will be a an item called System Unattended Sleep Timeout, change this value to be greater than the time of the typical break/lunch that staff take.

    Here is some links describing the steps in detail.

    We then created a group policy to apply these changes to all our contact center staff, current and future.

    You might not want to apply this to all staff in the organization, as remember this is a benefit for anyone else, conserving power when it isn't needed. Just for us in the contact center that power conservation means the network connection stops which then means the connection to the edges stops, which then means agent goes offline, and when they reconnect it puts them available.

    Thanks! this is very helpful.  I'm working with my engineering team to deploy a similar policy for our org.  

    Thanks again,
