Workflows allow you to customize the handling and distribution of incoming calls according to your preferences. Workflows can also react to the Opening Hours configured for your service and may apply different strategies depending on the time of day or during special holidays.
In order to have any effect, workflows need to be applied in the Service Settings.
Adding a Workflow
By default, Nimbus comes with predefined ready-to-use Workflow Templates.
You can have as many workflows defined in configuration as as you want. Multiple services can use the same workflow.
To add a new Workflow to the list, simply click "+Create New"
→ A new dialogue opens which allows you to name your workflow or select any of the available Workflow Templates to start with.
The amount of available workflow templates varies based on your licensed Nimbus Nimbus Features. The screenshot below is an exampleNew workflow selection and naming dialog
