Configuring Customized Agent Statuses

Agent status shows the agent’s interactivity with workspaces or customers. It also shows what type of activity an agent performs with the customers. Some default statuses are available in the Zendesk system, i.e., Offline, Online, Away, and Transfers only. However, sometimes agents need some customized statuses, which can be created in the admin center by agents or admins themselves. Zendesk authorities have introduced this new feature in the Zendesk. Agents can name customized statuses according to their will or need, such as Do Not Disturb, Unavailable, Busy, and Ready.Let us see how to configure the custom statuses of agents.
