    • If an attendant has no assistance in the group after logging in, it is considered the chosen one. The tiebreaker for other attendants in this same situation is who logs out first.
    • It considers the service group, as the queue is in order of the start time of new services in a given group.
  • IDLENESS
    • Among the online attendants without active service (idle), choose the one that performed the fewest calls after your check-in.
    • If there are more than one idle attendant with the same number of services performed after your login, consider the one who has been logged in the longest
    • If there is no idle attendant, that is, everyone has at least one active service, choose the one with the fewest active calls.
    • If two or more non-idle attendants have the same number of active calls, consider the one with the last message longer in relation to the last messages of the others.
    • A service is considered active when messages have been exchanged within the last “20 minutes” (from the DESK_AUTOMATIC_ACTIVIT parameter) in the company, without considering the service group.
    • It does not consider the service group, as an attendant who serves more than one group may not be idle with active services in other groups.
  • RANDOM
    • Randomly chooses an attendant who is online and without any active service.
    • If there are no idle agents, that is, everyone has at least one active service, among the non-idle online agents, choose the one with the fewest active services.
    • If two or more non-idle attendants have the same number of active calls, consider the one with the last message longer in relation to the last messages of the others.
    • A service is considered active when messages have been exchanged within the last “20 minutes” (from the DESK_AUTOMATIC_ACTIVIT parameter) in the company, without considering the service group.
