    • WebRTC
    • VidyoWeb™ for Chrome Extension

    • WebRTC
    • VidyoWeb Plugin
  • Internet Explorer®
    • VidyoWeb Plugin
  • Safari®

Logging in to the Agent Dashboard

Agents can log in to the agent dashboard with their agent credentials that the Tenant Admin has created in the VidyoEngage Admin UI.

To log in to the dashboard, enter the following information:


  • Your username in the Username field.
  • Your password in the Password field.

If the option to authenticate using LDAP is enabled by the Tenant Admin, then the username/password entered must match the agent’s LDAP credentials configured in the VidyoPortal.

Managing the Agent Dashboard

Agents can do the following from the dashboard:

  • Change their availability status
  • View profile behavior configurations
  • View incoming calls from the online queue
  • Schedule meetings

Changing the Availability Status

Agents can change their availability status to either Online or Not Available by clicking pencil.png in the upper right of the dashboard.


Viewing Profile Behavior Configurations

Agents can click settings.png in the upper right of the dashboard to view the profile behavior configurations that the Tenant Admin has set for both agents and customers in the VidyoEngage Tenant Admin UI. For more information, see the "Configuring the Agent’s Profile Behavior" and "Configuring the Customer’s Profile Behavior" sections of the Managing Profile Behavior Configurations article.


Viewing Incoming Calls from the Online Queue

Audio and video alerts are provided for incoming calls. The visual alert is displayed at the bottom right of the Agent dashboard no matter what tab you might be on (e.g., Online or Scheduled).


The Online tab contains incoming calls that customers have routed to the agent. The agent can pick up calls from the Online tab by clicking call_icon.png.


The agent’s status must be “online” in order for the call to appear in the online queue.


In-Call Settings

If the agent picks up the call, a two-way video call is initiated between the agent and customer. Based on the configurations set by the Tenant Admin via the VidyoEngage Tenant Admin Ul, the following in-call settings may be enabled or disabled for the agent:

  • Camera
  • Microphone
  • Speaker
  • Full Screen
  • Preview
  • Content Share


For more information, see the "Configuring the Agent’s Profile Behavior" section of the Managing Profile Behavior Configurations article.

Scheduling Meetings

To schedule meetings:

    1. Enter or select the following information:
      • Customer Name
