Contact Center Services Release 8.2
OfficeSuite Contact Center Services release 8.2 is scheduled for production on July 29th and August 2nd. The following is a summary of what is coming in the new release.
Self-Managed Agents can opt in/out of individual queues
Admins and Supervisors can now enable individual agents to join or leave assigned queues based on needs. This is done by editing an extension and selecting the “Self-Managed” checkbox.
If allowed, an agent can join or leave any of the queues in which they are assigned. This is done from the Queues tab in the Agent Control Panel (ACP). For an agent serving multiple queues they can now opt out of a queue to focus their time on a queue with more urgent needs. An agent can also opt into a queue, if they are a member of that queue, and that queue needs additional resources. The agent may not opt out of all queues they are assigned to and should choose an away or signed-out state instead.
The Admin or Supervisor can see which queues the agent is currently serving, and which queues the agent has opted out of. In this case, the agent is serving the Care Queue and Escalation Queue but has opted out of the Chat Queue. The Admin or Supervisor can override the agent’s queue duty and opt the agent back in or out of a queue.
Addition of .mp3 support in the Audio Library
In addition to .wav files, the audio library now supports using .mp3 files for upload.

The Windstream Enterprise Community is a community of real people who collaborate on answers, solutions, and ideas about the Windstream Enterprise products and services they use. We invite you to become a member, but we do have a few rules. For everyone's sake, we are committed to enforcing these guidelines, as well as our community vendor's Terms of Service.
People will respect you more, engage with you more often, and treat you like a real person if you use your actual identity here. While not mandatory, it does help us identify accounts when we try to provide answers to specific questions.
We are into transparency, honesty, and truth. Do not misrepresent yourself or lie about your identity, affiliations, or age. Our community is based on the contributions of real people who put their reputations on the line. Be one of them.
Have (Good, Clean) Fun
We encourage the spirit of fun, so long as it does not hurt other people. Please do not use jokes, words or images that come at the expense of others. Be sensitive to other users around you, and do not post profane, sexual, or violent material.
Be Constructive with Your Criticism
The idea here is to foster healthy conversation and debate without ever attacking anyone personally. We take all questions, suggestions, and feedback seriously and will respond accordingly and so should you.
Spread the Wealth
Make our community a richer place by sharing your experience and insight. You may have the perfect answer to someone else's burning question. This is the substance of the Windstream Enterprise Community.
It is okay to talk up the products or services you love (or sell), but only if it is relevant to the conversation. If you are here to plant a ton of links to your Web site without doing much else, your posts are likely to be removed by a moderator.
Do Not Wrongfully Post Content
Make sure you have the right to publish any content you post to the Windstream Enterprise Community, and do not violate the privacy of others.
Be Fruitful, but Do Not Multiply
Do not create multiple accounts to violate these guidelines, game the system, or harass and deceive other users.
Trolls are users whose primary goal is to disrupt the community, attack other users, antagonize community managers, and are never interested in a productive outcome. If you engage in troll behavior, we will ask you to leave the Windstream Enterprise Community.
