Contact block: Transfer to agent (beta) - Amazon Connect

Contact block: Transfer to agent (beta)


  • Ends the current contact flow and transfers the customer to an agent. If the agent is already with someone else, the contact is disconnected.

  • The Transfer to Agent block is a beta feature and works only for voice interactions.

  • We recommend using the Set working queue block for agent-to-agent transfers instead of using this block. The Set working queue block supports omnichannel transfers such as voice and chat. For instructions, see Set up agent-to-agent transfers.
