Create Capacity Service

1

The Capacity Service enables you to define the number of scheduled callbacks that are allowed for Callback for a given time slot in the week. Then, your Callback service refers to your Capacity service and to your Office Hours service to adjust the agent availability and the number of scheduled callbacks.

You can define exceptions for dates when fewer or more scheduled callbacks are available, and you can define as many Capacity services that you need to match your Callback services.

Make sure to update the existing calendar configuration to set the correct timezone for your Capacity service. For instance, if you configured "EST", or "PST" timezones with the configuration, your parameters must use the timezones defined for Java such as "America/Toronto", or "Europe/Paris". See Wikipedia to get the list of correct timezones.


Create a Capacity Service

Create a new service and select capacity in the list of templates.

Once this service is created, you can use the Capacity API.

Important
You also need to create an Office Hours service.

Link your Capacity to your Callback Service

1

If your Callback service needs variable capacity levels, you must map its _capacity_service parameter value with the name of the Capacity service that you have created.

Important
Callback services that need fixed capacity levels can continue to use the _max_request_by_time_bucket option. But, if your Callback service includes both _capacity_service and _max_request_by_time_bucket options, then _max_request_by_time_bucket is ignored.
