Viewing active engagements

Last Updated:

Active engagements are current Zoom Contact Center engagements where an agent is currently interacting with a consumer; or engagements available to be manually assigned. You can view information on active engagements like the queue the engagement was routed to and how much time the agent has spent so far handling the engagement.

Admins and supervisors can also monitor the active voice call when viewing active engagements, and view live information on active engagements using the Zoom web portal.

  • Zoom desktop client for Windows or macOS, 5.11.10 or higher
  • Pro, Business, or Education account
  • Zoom Contact Center license
  • Account owner, admin, supervisor, or agent role; or relevant privilege
    Note: Supervisors and agents can only view data for the queues they're a member of.
  • Account owner, admin, or supervisor privileges; or relevant role/privilege for monitoring engagements
