Users is a workspace under the Account menu in Edify Console. The User workspace is where Huddle Admins create new user accounts and configure individual user settings, like configuring how the user manages calls through Edify, defining the user's individual access to specific workspaces within Edify Huddle, and more.
In Edify Console, you have access to creating new users for your account. Once a user is created, you can configure several additional settings to address how the user can use Edify, like setting the user’s license type and enabling other access. These settings are configured in the user’s permissions container.
From the list of users, click on a user name. The Basic section of that window is where you can view and update the primary contact information for the user, like the user’s name, job title, work email address, and more. This is also where you disable inactive users and update the user’s reporting structure. When creating a new user, you’ll only need to input the user’s name, email address and extension number. Review the graphics below to see how the configurations in Console (left) are presented in App (right).
The Voice container within the Users workspace of Edify Console is where you configure the user’s voice settings. This container gives you access to configuring how the user manages calls through Edify and other voice channel related settings.
The Connections container within the Users workspace of Edify Console is relevant to Edify accounts that are successfully integrated with a CRM, like Salesforce and Zendesk, because this is where you view and update the user’s userID for the appropriate CRM. Therefore, you will only use the field within this container that applies to the CRM that you use.
The Voicemail container within the User workspace of Edify Console is where you configure the user’s voicemail settings. These configurations tell Huddle how to manage the user’s inbound UC calls once the call reaches the user’s set Ring Time, which is a configurable setting for Admins and users.When configuring a user’s voicemail settings, you and the user have access to customizing the user’s voicemail settings. However, only the user has access to customizing the actual voicemail greeting. In either case, once you and/or the user updates any of these voicemail settings, reload the application to push the changes live for the user.
The Queue section under Users is where Admins configure the settings for how the user will manage interactions in Queue. Admins can define the number of interactions the user can manage, the type of interactions she can manage, (i.e. only inbound interactions, only outbound interactions, or both), and more in this area.
These settings provide the Admin access to configuring queue settings that apply to both outbound and inbound interactions. For example, here is where the admin can define whether the user can manage multiple interactions or not, the alerts for when the user misses interaction(s), and more.
These settings provide the admin access to configuring how the user will manage inbound interactions in Queue.
These settings give the Admin access to configuring how a user manages and experiences outbound interactions in Queue.
At Edify, we use tags as a way to instruct Huddle on how to handle certain objects in Queue, like how to prioritize interactions compared to other interactions or connect a skilled agent to a specific interaction. However, before you have access to assigning a user a tag, you must first create it. So, you can create and modify tags in the Tags workspace under the CX menu. Then, once a tag is created, assign that tag to one or several different types of Huddle objects, like one or more users, knowledge base articles, and more.
The Queue Permissions section under Users is where you assign each queue that the user can access. Also, here is where you can set whether the user manually logs into the queue for the first time or if Huddle will automatically enable the queue for the user upon logging into Edify. Go to the list of users, select a user, and scroll down to find the Queue Permissions. After updating a user’s queue permissions, ensure that the user opens the settings menu and reloads Huddle to reflect the new queue settings.
The User Permissions container under Users is where Admins define which workspaces in Edify Console and in Edify App that the user can access based on how the user will work inside of Edify Huddle. In general, some of the main roles for working in Edify include - “Huddle Admin”, “Huddle Agent”, “Huddle Agent Manager, and “Huddle Office”. So, let’s first look at the general permissions you might set for each of these roles.
In Edify Console, the Groups container in the User workspace is where you have access to reviewing a specific user’s assigned Teams. This container is a view-only area. So, if you need to make modifications to the user’s assigned Groups, or Teams, like adding the user to or removing the user from one or more of them, then navigate to the Groups Workspace under the Account menu. That is where you’ll have access to modifying the user’s teams.
In Edify Console, the Queue Logged Into container under the User workspace is where Huddle Admins can view queues that the user is managing, when the user first logged into those queues, and manually log a user out of one of more queues. It’s important to note that both you and the agent have access to this information. The agent views and logs theirself into and out of queues through Queues List within the Queue Workspace in the Edify App.
Away Reasons under the Account menu in Edify Console is where Admins create company-wide status messages for users to use when updating their User Statuses. The away reasons that are created on the account are then accessible to users in Edify App within the Custom Messages menu.

Groups is a workspace under the Account menu where Huddle Admins organize users into Teams. Teams provide queue users access to seeing real-time activity of teammates from the Dashboard Workspace in Edify App. Members of a team can see the following details of each teammate: queue status, user status, currently enabled queues, and interaction activity. Learn more about each of these areas by reviewing the Team View Workspace quick guide.

A queue user can be assigned to an unlimited number of Teams. Admins can create an unlimited number of teams, add agent(s) to one or many teams, or remove agents from one or many teams. Once a team is created, Huddle automatically creates a private chat channel in Chat with each of the team members. As you add new team members to the Team, the team member is also automatically added to the private chat channel.
Ring Groups is a workspace under the Account menu in Edify Console that gives Huddle Admins access to building groups of phone numbers and then defining the specific settings around these grouped numbers. When a ring group number is dialed, all the phones in that group ring simultaneously. Use these guides to create and modify Ring Groups to support the specific needs for your company.
