Wrap Up

The pre-programmed wrap up time is provided to allow you to complete any extra work related to the call. During this time you will not receive ACD calls. When the wrap up time is up, your LED will go out and you will be available to receive calls. If you need more time to complete wrap up tasks, use the unavailable or DND keys.
