ShoreTel Workgroup Integration The “call center state” area shows the current agent status and allows an agent to change it: - From any state, the agent can change his state to "Not Ready for Calls" to prevent future workgroup calls. This might be used, for example, by an agent before he takes a break. - From "Wrap Up", the agent can change his state to "Ready for Calls" if he concludes his wrap up early before the automatic timeout. - From "Not Ready for Calls", the agent can change his state to "Ready for Calls" to start accepting workgroup calls.
