To have an agent logged out it is advised to proceed with this action from the wallboard where you will see a list of logged in agents and have the action to force log them off.

1. Navigate to The Status page by clicking on the three stacked dots on the left menu bar. 

2. Once the page is loaded at times not all agents are displayed and it is advisable to click on the "Show/Hide Form" button to expand the filter options. 

3. Ensure that the "Team" drop-down list is set to "All" to list all agents.

Additional Information

If you still can not identify the logged in agent Please contact the 8x8 support team for further assistance. It is extremely important to provide the support team with the Agent that is affected and the CLI of the phone that they are attempting to process the login from. Without this information, it is nearly impossible to identify the logged in agent.
