User configuration

Without further settings, users can see all queues in which they are a member.

Give the desired users the permission for the waitin queues. To do this, you configure the user authorization under visibility of the WQ object. You can also assign the user to groups in which he is not a member.

Via Visibility you can fade in and fade out the waiting queues.

In the example below, the queue "WQ_Abwurf" is visible to Long Name Dagobert.Duck and not visible to Rita.Ruhrig.

comteloGROUPS brings structure to your call groups. If you want to work together efficiently, this app has many advantages. Thanks to the user-friendly interface, Waiting Queues are clearly summarized and provide information on the status of the groups and their participants. What is the current availability of my group participants? Who is available or who has an appointment at the moment? Are there any people in my group who are available permanently? These are just a few examples, of what the comteloGROUPS app makes visible. The practicality of the app is supplemented with additional functions, such as a direct call from the app or the chat button for short messages in between. Take efficient collaboration to a new level with comteloGROUPS!
