A new Call Intrusion feature is now available.

What does the Call Intrusion feature include?

Whisper – (*67*<TARGET USER’S EXTENSION>#) this allows users to enter a call, hear both parties and speak to one of those users without the other party hearing. This function is helpful for coaching staff on live calls, without the other party hearing.

Monitor  (*68*<TARGET USER’S EXTENSION>#) users can join a call, hear both parties, but neither side can hear you. Great for reviewing agent performance.

Barge in (*66*<TARGET USER’S EXTENSION>#) users can enter a call to hear and speak to both parties. This is helpful for support staff who are managing disputes or customer complaints, as they can talk to customers together.

Enabling the feature

Call Intrusion can be enabled on the user’s Features panel.
