Default Communication Channels Settings

When FLEXFIG is set up within your Twilio Flex account, by default we will configure the following settings for the communication channels.

  • Messaging (SMS & Chat) 
    • Default Capacity: 4 
    • Optimized Routing: Disabled  
  • Voice
    • Default Capacity:
    • Optimized Routing: Disabled  

The default capacity identifies the number of tasks an individual agent accepts for a given channel. 

If optimized routing is enabled, agents that have been idle the longest are prioritized to receive tasks first for a given channel.
