Call External Number while another call is on hold
We are using CCP to handle calls in aws connect. When an agent gets a call, sometimes s/he needs some more information. And gets the call on-hold. And wants to make a call to external number. When s/he clicks Number pad, s/he can see numbers, but there is no call button. Only End call button. Agent can make a call to quick connect. But it is not always best solution as we cannot record every number as quick connect.
Is there any way to call external numbers without registering them as quick connect first?
From my end, I can also only see the End call button when I click on the Number pad directly during a call. Seems like a bug.. However, I found a workaround.
- Click on Quick connects
- In the Quick connects page, click on the Number pad button at the bottom of the screen
- The Call button will now be enabled after entering any external phone number
- Click Call
Hello Joahna, thanks for your response. Yes I was able to make a call with your method.
I also created a ticket to AWS (https://github.com/amazon-connect/amazon-connect-streams/issues/557)
Thank you again.
Have a great day
