Agents can be auto assigned based on the location defined in their user record and the
location of the tasks.
Auto assignment by location can be performed in a task- or request-driven processing
environment if the Auto-selection of agents will consider location of
agents configuration is enabled.
When a task is created, agent locations are compared to the following ranges to determine a
location rating for each agent.
Table 1. Location rating calculation
|Distance (mi.) from agent to task
When a task is qualified or marked as Ready for Work, the agent closest
to the task location is considered for the task. If the application is configured so that only
location is considered, the closest agent is auto-assigned to the task.
If the application is configured to use other selection criteria—such as skills, time zone, or
schedule—the ratings of all selection criteria are averaged, and the agent with the highest
overall rating is auto-assigned for the task. See Agent auto assignment using multiple selection criteria for
