Queue Alarm Configuration

The Queues Alarm Configuration page allows you to configure a set of Queue Alarms that will be displayed for a selection of users. You can access the Queues configuration page by selecting Phone System->Queues Alerts in the Administration Interface.

Configuring the users

The target users can be selected through the lists User Group, Include Users and Excluded Users. The configured alerts will appear for all users that are either in one of the selected groups or are explicitly listed in the included users. It goes without saying that users listed in Exclude Users will never be targeted.


After creating the Queue Alarm Configuration it has to still be associated with a queue configuration before its alarms will be shown in the client


Screenshot 1: The Queue Alarm Configuration page


New Alarms can be added to the Alarm Configuration by selecting a Alert Type from the dropdown list and clicking add Alarm. Each alarm will trigger a visual hint (screenshot 2) in the client's Queue Widget when the value of the Alert Type's target statistic is within the specified range. If any of the ranges overlap only one of the matching visual hints will display. Since Alarms are not ordered it could be any of the overlapping of the Alarm's hints that will be display. We therefor recommend not overlapping the Alarms. 

In addition to the visual hint a notification can be shown to the users by checking the notification check box. This will result in a notification in the lower right corner of the client as shown in screenshot 2. Notifications for overlapping ranges are all displayed as they stack on top of each other. Notification will only be visible to users that have the queue widget on their active dashboard.

Once a alert configuration is saved it can be added to a queue via the queue configuration.

Overlapping Alarm Configurations

In the same way there is no order for the alarms in a Queue Alarm Configuration there is no order for the Queue Alarm Configurations them selfs. Therefore an Queue Alarm Configurations can override another configuration if they have overlapping alarm definitions that apply to the same user, preventing one of the two configurations from displaying.
