Limits and priorities

Limits and priorities

Assignment order

The app assigns tickets in the order in which they are in the view. Thus, you can set priorities by changing the sort order of the view.

Understanding limits

In Round Robin you can limit the number of tickets assigned to an agent in two ways:

The first one is to limit the number of open tickets in agents backlog. For example, if you specify the limit of 10 - the app will not assign tickets to an agent if one already has 10 open tickets. 

The second one is to limit the number of tickets assigned to an agent per time period. For example, if you specify the limit of "3 in 30m" - the app will not assign tickets more than more then 3 tickets in the in 30 minutes. You can set the period in hours "h" or in minutes "m"

You can specify a global limit, which affects all agents, or individual limits for specific agents or tags.

Global limit is set for all your agents by default. You can find out more about the global limit in the next section. You can override the Global limit for specific agents by setting individual limits.

For example with a global limit set to 10 tickets in 1 hour but our agent "Jim" has an individual limit of 15 open tickets in the backlog. So the app will assign tickets to Jim only if he has less than 15 open tickets backlog while all other agents will get 10 in that hour regardless of their backlogs.
