Add Record Block


Use this block to automate building of Calling Lists by adding a new record to a specified Calling List. For example, you can use the Add Record block to automatically develop a Calling List, such as one to follow up on inbound calls that were abandoned during traffic peaks. You can then configure a routing workflow to detect abandoned calls and add records to the Calling List with the parameters of the incoming interactions. The Calling List can then be used by an outbound campaign that dials out to these customers during off-peak hours and has the Agent apologize and follow up. Also see:
