Overload Path Is Not Working in 8x8 Contact Center


The 8x8 Contact Center script Forward to Queue object has an Overload setting of "more than 3 calls holding", and an Overload path to play a message.

When there are 3 calls in the queue, the fourth call stays in the queue and does not get routed to the Overload message.

Applies To

  • 8x8 Contact Center
  • Inbound Phone Script


  1. Create a new script and use "Copy script from" the original script.
  2. Remove the original Forward to Queue object.
  3. Add a new Forward to Queue with the same settings, and same Overload paths.


The script was originally made in an old mycontactual version of 8x8 Contact Center. The coding of the older original Forward to Queue object is not compatible with the latest version of Contact Center.
