How to add an agent and request a password


Firstly, note that there are two ways for an agent to be added:

  1. You can add an "internal" agent, by just going to the Agents view in babelforce and use the "Add agent" button under Routing & Queuing > Agents
  2. You can import / sync agents from another source system, e.g. from a helpdesk solution or from a CRM (this article explains it with the example of a Freshdesk integration, however, it is the same progress regardless of the helpdesk you use)

Note that in either case, you can work with integrated systems, the choice just depends on how the integrations work and what is supported by the integrated system. If an agent is added via 1. then no ticket will be opened if they take a call because they are not connected with the integrated system.

Whatever method is used, the user/agent has to get access to the babelConnect app first to be able to take phone calls.

In this article, we will illustrate using the first method for adding an agent directly in babelforce. Such agents are given the label "internal".


Step 1: Manager adds agent in babelforce

Only two values are required: a name and an email that the agent can use



Step 2: The agent confirms the email using the line in invite

Note that Step 2 doesn't apply if an agent was imported / synched.


Step 3: The agent requests a password change to set their own one for babelConnect

Note that If Step 2 was applied, agents will automatically receive an email. Otherwise they will have to do it manually  by clicking in this link entering the email address of the agent/user that was invited and then clicking on "Reset my password" to set their own for babelConnect.

You will receive an email something like this:
