This article gives an overview of Auto Answer in Edify App.


Auto Answer automatically accepts interactions for a queue user without giving them the option to accept or reject the interaction when the system delivers them the interaction.

Since Auto Answer automatically accepts interactions for queue users, it saves them time and effort because they don’t have to manually accept or reject each interaction delivered to them. It also further automates the interaction, allowing queue users to focus on the customer experience.

This feature is commonly used for very high volume queues to help decrease agent fatigue by eliminating unnecessary steps in their processes.

Note: If Auto Answer is enabled, queue users can’t reject interactions.

A queue user can set up their Auto Answer settings by navigating to Settings > Edit Profile > Call Settings and toggling the Auto Answer WebRTC Interactions on. See Configure your auto answer settings (Edify App).

Note: Queue users can configure this setting. This is not an Edify Console setting that an admin can control.
