Your Full Waiting Queue Message is what the caller hears when the waiting queue is full. An example of a common Full Waiting Queue Message is, “We are currently experiencing high call volume. Please leave a message with your name and phone number and we will return your call as soon as possible.” or “We apologize but we are currently experiencing high call volume. Please leave a message after the beep, send us a support email at firstname.lastname@example.org or chat with us online at mycompany.com.”
