Allow agents to set their availability

What for "Agents availability app" is?

You can use this function to enable your agents to set their own availability state (available, unavailable, or by schedule). They do this in Zendesk's agent interface via the Round Robin Agent Availability app. Round Robin will only assign tickets to agents who are available at the moment.

I see the error with the message "The agent is not active in Round Robin project", what does it mean?

   To be able to manage the availability an agent must be "Active" in Round Robin. You need to set "Yes" in "Active" column for the agent.


If I set myself unavailable in Agents availability app, does Round Robin not assign any tickets to me?



Is this feature available in all plans?

   No. This feature is available on Enterprise plan.


Why I can’t find Round Robin Agent Availability App in the App Directory?
