Flow block: Resume contact - Amazon Connect

Flow block: Resume contact


  • Resumes a task contact from a paused state. This enables agents to free up an active slot so they can receive more critical tasks when their current task is stalled, for example, because of a missing approval or waiting on an external input.

  • For more information how pausing and resuming tasks works in Amazon Connect, see Concepts: Pause and resume tasks.

Configuration tips

When you design a flow to resume unassigned, paused tasks that are dequeued, be sure to add a Transfer to queue block to the flow to queue the task after resuming. Otherwise, the task will stay in a de-queued state.
