How to Enable a Supervisor to Monitor Agent Calls in ContactNow

To enable a supervisor to monitor live agent calls, elevate the supervisor’s status from Agent to Supervisor. Learn more here.


This guide will show you how to assign a Supervisor the rights that allow them to monitor live agent calls.
