About direct routing

Using Genesys Cloud direct routing, you can route an interaction to a dedicated agent as an ACD interaction. All the features of an ACD interaction are available, yet the interaction does not wait on the queue to be answered. Agents can also map a backup agent or queue to handle an interaction in their absence. Use performance reports to view the interactions routed via direct routing and the associated metrics.
