How Can Call Queues Help My Office?
If your employees find themselves experiencing an overwhelming rate of calls, voicemails, or parked calls, call queues can help you reduce the number of missed calls by answering them in an orderly manner.
Call queues also have features to ensure a better experience for your agents.
After Call Work Time allows 5 seconds after hanging up a call to regroup before the next one comes into their phone.
By Rejecting a Call, agents ensure their phone will not receive another call for the queue for 60 seconds. The call will reroute to another agent.
Agents can select Do Not Disturb to take a break and stop receiving calls. This is great for lunch breaks and in-office meetings.
How Can I Start Using Call Queues?

How Do I Edit My Call Queues?
After your queue has been created by a Weave representative, you can make edits through the Weave Portal
- Head to the Weave Portal and select Phone in the left side menu
- Click Call Queues from the dropdown menu
- You’ll see the name of the queue you set up with support. Click into the queue
Here you can make changes to the call queue to affect how it works and what the callers experience. The features you can customize include:

- If you have the option of Main Line or Departments in the left navigation of the Phones section in the Weave Portal, you may also assign Call Queues there
- Greeting as a caller enters the queue
- Upload a recorded greeting for your callers or select one from the dropdown menu
- Allowing an escape option from the queue
- Choose whether callers can press 0 to go to your fallback option (usually voicemail) that is set by Weave

- Choose your preferred hold music from a drop-down list
- If and how often you want the caller to hear their position in line with the position announcement
