Callers Stuck in Wait Queue Even Thought Agents are Available
I’m curious if anyone has struggled with callers getting stuck in the wait queue, even though there are available agents. Here’s my situation:Call comes into IVR; callers presses 2 to talk to agent Rings to all available agents (2-4 logged in at a time) for :60. If agents are available but don’t answer (because they’re working on another ticket), go to Rollover Call Queue Play Wait Queue Message, append position to wait message Problem: The call only rings back to agents in a new call comes into the queue or if the agent moves into the “available” status. If the agents finish their other ticket and can now take a call, they call may not ever ring to them again, meaning the caller is just stuck in the queue until the max time. How do others handle this? Do you require your agents to stop working on calls and take the ticket? Do you separate duties so phone agents are never distracted by other tickets? Do you have agents flip their availability on and off to trigger the phone to ring

'Contact Support' keeps popping up when trying to buy a mobile number in Australia
I’m trying to purchase a mobile number in Australia, but the system keeps asking to me, ‘CONTACT’ SUPPORT’, and just leads me to an email page to email their support team.This is on FreshCaller Btw. And I’m currently on a paid Freshworks plan. Just wondering if I need to first buy credits first before before buying a number?
Abandoned Calls creating FreshDesk Tickets Automatically
I wish there was a configuration setting to stop FreshCaller from creating FreshDesk tickets for abandoned calls. We don't run our call center 24x7 so we have several abandoned calls during off hours, and a few during operational hours. The getting a couple of dozen unwanted tickets in FreshDesk every day for abandoned calls is annoying. I love how it creates tickets for Voicemails, because that is an action item we need to follow up on. However, calling back and abandoned call number rarely makes sense and we are not going to do it. There are all kinds of reasons people hang up and us calling them back is not something we want to do. If there were a simple flag that says, "create tickets for abandoned calls (yes,no)" so I have some control, that would be a great feature add and would reduce workload and frustration.
Best Practices for Messages in IVR?
Does anyone have suggestions for how to improve our IVR messages? In particular, the wait queue and call back messages? Here’s my situation:Call goes into the queue Play wait queue for caller that says something like, “All agents are busy, please hold or press * to leave a voicemail.” Append queue position I’d like to enable callback so immediately after the queue position the Callback says something like, “Press 1 to remain in queue or press 2 to leave a voicemail.” If callers presses 1, it repeats the wait queue message above (#2) and the queue position.. over and over and over.This means the customer experience goes something like this: “All agents are busy, please hold or press * to leave a voicemail… You are number 1 in line…Press 1 to remain in queue or press 2 to leave a voicemail...All agents are busy, please hold or press * to leave a voicemail… You are number 1 in line…All agents are busy, please hold or press * to leave a voicemail… You are number 1 in line…All agents are bu
Incoming Calls - skip call queue message
We just setup Freshcaller so our Receptionist can answer incoming calls. It placed it in a default queue that plays a greeting before attempting to ring and connect wiht the agent. Is there a way to skip the queue and just have it ring the agent directly with no recorded greeting.
Purchasing Local, Toll Free, and Mobile Australian Numbers.
I’m currently on trial with Freshdesk Estate Omnichannel to move my entire business to the freshworks suite and going through the new setup. I am unable to purchase FreshCaller numbers. It says “Contact Support”. I made a case yesterday and have yet to hear back on a resolution for what I thought was a simple request; If this is how a trial goes for a simple number purchase, what other issues can we expect from FreshWorks? My case is: #8782302
Sending customer an account activation email
I seem to remember a button on the contacts page that lets us agents send our customers freshdesk account activation emails. What happened to the button, was it removed ?Situation : A customer creates an account but never receives the confirmation email, and doesn’t notify un until many months go by and calls us upset that they cannot get support and have no idea that we didn’t reply to him because he never got into the system to create a ticket.-In this case I had our Admin go in and assign him a disposable password so he could log in and create a ticket, reminding him he should go to his account settings and setup a password he could remember.
Ticket switching from Voicemail to Abandoned after Automation Ran
Freshdesk is treating abandoned calls incorrectly and support says it’s functioning as designed, so there is nothing they can do.If a caller hangs up during the outgoing voicemail message, without leaving a voicemail themselves, the ticket gets created as a voicemail, my automation runs as if it’s a voicemail (high priority), and THEN Freshdesk recognizes that it’s in fact an abandoned call, then changes the subject to Abandoned Call. I’m left with an Abandoned Call with a High priority.I can’t even make a Time Trigger automation to switch priorities after the fact since Time Triggers does not allow me to search in Subject or Description.I’ve seen a few others complaining about this over the years. Why isn’t this being fixed?

Has anyone else had this issue. We are not able to connect to any extension when placing a call to a customer if the extension has more than 1 digit when using the keypad.Our office using Chrome and I have confirmed that we have the latest version. We use Chromebooks as well.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Service Level Reporting
Has anyone had trouble with Freshcaller's service level reporting? We've recently switched from Five9, and it seems like no matter how I try to calculate service level in Freshcaller we are consistently 5-10% lower than we should be. Even on a slower call volume day, our service level is still lower with Freshcaller. Any idea what I'm missing?
