Enter the number of seconds you want an inbound call to stay in the queue before an action indicated in the Drop Action field will be performed.     Step 5. Select the desired drop action from the Drop Action field once the call has reached its drop call seconds limit:   HANGUP – The system will hangup the call after the drop seconds limit is reached.
