ScopTEL ACD Pause Code Usage

About ACD Pause Codes

Pause Codes are used to make a LOGGED agent Unavailable/Available during the course of an agent’s shift.
Pause Codes are advantageous because an agent should only LOGIN when they start their shift and LOGOUT when they end their shift and use the Pause Code to make them themselves Unavailable/Available to their assigned QUEUES during their shift. If the Call Center Manager needs to see how much time in an Agent’s shift the Agent was not available due to breaks or other reasons Pause Code Tags can be appended to each Pause Code usage by each Agent before and after each activity.
Pause Codes are generally pre-defined by the Call Center Manager and each Pause Code number is associated with an activity. Examples:
Pause Code 0001 = BREAK
Pause Code 0002 = LUNCH
Pause Code 0003 = BATHROOM
