Admin: change users (DND, available, offline) in call queue

As an admin, I should have the ability to change any extensions DND status. If an agent leaves their desk and forgets to remove their phone from the queue, I have to log into their extension and change it for them.

    As a support tech, when a user is locked out of their computer and had their phone set to DND, it is difficult to establish voice communication. Other VOIP providers like 3CX, allow admins to to turn DND off for the user. Would like to see that functionality here.

    Hey Kenny (and everyone)

    We've un-merged this idea: to be a place for all of the votes on setting user status outside of call queues. Product is asking for specific use cases in this situation that would impact your daily work routines.

    Thanks all!

    @Becky Hensley A couple of the ideas that have been merged to this one state the need for the ability to change the status, DND or otherwise, for any user without mention of queues. Those ideas are marked as Implemented, so can you unmerge them from this one and merge them together as an idea that has not been implemented?

    Team, Thanks for your feedback on this. The original idea states, " If an agent leaves their desk and forgets to remove their phone from the queue, I have to log into their extension and change it for them." The information Jessica provided is accurate for this idea.

    If your use case is not in regards to call queues, we'd like to either create a new idea to address that need or unmerge an idea that reflects your use case explicitly.

    Our team is going to review the merged ideas to make sure they weren't merged incorrectly.

    Please shoot us an email at and we'll be glad to coordinate the appropriate idea with your use case.

    We have standard and if you mean OUR "account manager" is able to change this, then that's not true either! We still can't do what was told. Even though it's been mentioned already that we want access for admins to change the USER's STATUS... not the user's status within a specific queue.

    This idea has been marked as "Implemented", but that is not true. The idea clearly states "ability to change any extension's DND status" and the instructions that have been posted are for queues only.

    This apparently only applies to customers who use Call Queue. This "idea" was clearly asking to have this ability for individual extensions. This should be declared "Imoplemented". Perhaps one of the idea's you merged into this one, but certainly not this Idea.

    Agreed. If a person leaves for lunch and forgets to change their status to DoNotDisturb, meanwhile gets hit by a truck and has no way to get back to work to change their own status, we need a way to change it for them.

    The instructions provided are only for call-queues. We need this for physical deskphones, softphones, etc as well.

    Back in Cisco CM, it was the easiest thing. Has this been made possible yet for RC? Please tell me that it's a yes.

    Just had a call and after switching from a low brow system to ring central I get asked by our management daily about why I am not helping handle making these changes and after several calls it is obviously something I feel needs to be added as would save both support and myself time in making these changes that we have happen throughout every day.

    One of the singularly most frustrating thing about this system - how was this not a function from day one?

    Also if it would show on the Desk Phone with a light or the red circle next to the users that have made themselves DND that would be amazing!

    It is now almost a year later that this excellent suggestion was made and still not available. Come on RC. This needs to be a function for admins at a minimum.

    This was a common Admin function when we ran a Cisco system, and I was very surprised that I couldn't do it in RC.

Allow Queue Manager to make member "Unavailable" or "Available"

Sometimes members of a call queue will forget to "toggle" the "Accept queue calls" button to OFF when logging out. At this point they still look "Available" to the queue. It would be nice as a manager to be able to mark that member as "Unavailable...

Admin Control of Log in/Log out in Call Queue
