How to add queues and ring Group Freepbx 16

Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) or call queuing provides a way for a FreePBX to queue incoming calls. A queue is a stack or line of calls that need to be answered. When a call is directed into the queue, by default, the calls are answered in a first-in, first-out order. Call queues are useful when you have more callers than people available to answer calls. Callers placed into a queue will hear music or advertising until someone is available to answer their call. The Queues module allows you to create and design queues that allow callers to speak with agents as quickly and painlessly as possible

By default freepbx does not have this functionality and it requires some extra modules to attach below are steps to add modules from github repository, queue Module and ring group need to add to your current freepbx
