All Pauses can be either paid on unpaid depending on your selection in the Pause details.

Pause Type



Used when an agent is inactive at a time when they should be active.

The pause starts automatically if:

  • Automatic pause is set up in an incoming queue and an agent doesn't answer an incoming activity before Ring time runs out, or

  • Automatic pause is set up in an incoming queue and an agent rejects an incoming activity, or

  • Time without activity is set up in a manual campaign queue and an agent exceeds it, or

  • Automatic pause is set up in a custom pause with a Max duration and an agent exceeds the pause's time limit.

You can change the name of the pause and whether or not it is paid.


The pause can only be started and ended from an agent's SW or HW phone by dialling a feature code.

  • It must be enabled in Routings → Calls → Advanced settings → Feature codes → Internal application.

  • The default codes are:

    • DND on: *181

    • DND off: *182

You can change the name of the pause and whether or not it is paid.


Used to give agents a short break between activities.

The pause starts automatically after an agent saves an activity from a queue that has Wrapup time set up. After Wrapup time runs out, the pause is automatically ended.

You can change the name of the pause and whether or not it is paid.

Custom pause

A pause that agents can start manually.

You can change all its settings.
