What is the Queues App?

The Queues app is a powerful tool designed to streamline customer engagement workflows directly within Microsoft Teams. Whether you’re handling customer inquiries, support tickets, or sales leads, this app provides a centralized platform to manage and prioritize tasks with ease.

Your team members have the capability to utilize the Queues app for managing incoming calls, encompassing both PSTN and VOIP, by actively selecting them from the call queue. Additionally, they possess the capacity to initiate outgoing calls on behalf of the call queues or auto attendants to which they are designated. Furthermore, they can assess their call queue performance and collaborate seamlessly with their leads or colleagues throughout the workflow process.

Furthermore, authorized users, granted permissions by Teams admins, can monitor call queues and auto attendants in real-time. They have the authority to opt in or opt out their team members for managing their business efficiently. Moreover, they can generate comprehensive performance reports, configure the call queues, and auto attendants, update greetings, and execute other delegated admin functions to optimize performance in alignment with business requirements.

The Queues app requires a Teams Premium license and will be available in the first half of 2024.
