This article explains how to conference a person into a voice interaction in Edify App.

You can conference different types of people into a customer conversation in the Queue. You can conference with another queue user, a non-queue user (a licensed Edify EX user), or an external contact, which is a person that’s outside of your Edify account.

Either way, the process for conferencing the person into the customer conversation is the same.

To conference a person into an inbound or outbound voice interaction, you’ll first initiate an attended transfer to that person. Then, after the receiving person answers the attended transfer, you’ll bring everyone together into the conference by pressing the Conference button.

These are the types of conferences that you can perform in queue:

  • Conference in a user (like an Edify CX user working the same queue as you or any Edify EX user).

  • Conference in a different queue (like Billing Q needs help from Support Q).

  • Conference in an external contact.

This article provides the steps for each type of conference.
