This allows the dialer to continue dialing while an agent is on a call, with the effect of connecting a live call to an agent the moment they are finished with their current call. This feature should not be used unless you always have an agent available to take a call, and your dropped call percentage is already within nominal ranges. The lines which would normally stop dialing once a call is connected will not stop dialing. If an agent is not available, dropped call percentage will increase drastically!
Caution: If this setting is not properly managed it can drastically increase the number of calls you DROP.
NOTE: In-call dialing should not be used if agents in the specific campaign are closers only - The campaign would make calls while the agents were in inbound calls of their own.
