Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) uniformly distributes calls among agents of a programmed ACD Group. When a call rings into an ACD Group, the system automatically routes the call to the agent that has been idle the longest. Automatic Call Distribution is much more sophisticated and comprehensive than Department Calling and other group services – it can accurately judge the work load at each A agent and distribute calls accordingly. The system allows up to 2 ACD Groups and 16 ACD agents.
The ACD Master Number is the extension number of the whole group. Calls directly ringing or transferred to the ACD Master number enter the group and are routed accordingly. Although the master number can be any valid extension number, you should choose a number that is out of the normal extension range.
