Why limit distribution hours?

There are a number of reasons you may choose to set Distribution Hours:

  • You have teams or team members in different geographies and assignments should go only to someone currently working
  • Teams work different shifts
  • You want to ensure assignments only happen during working hours in order to track time to contact accurately

Offsetting distribution hours

It is common to offset distribution hours from the actual working hours e.g. start distribution 20 minutes before people come to work and stop 20 minutes before they leave. That way, you can ensure they have assignments ready when they arrive at work, and don't receive assignments just before they leave.
