Enter State Block

Use the Enter State block to mark the entry of the application into a specified state in the context of a service.

Service State Definition

Throughout their lifecycle, business services to customers proceed through a series of well-defined states (see list below).  In order to personalize and properly orchestrate a service to a customer, Universal Contact Server  must record when each of these predefined states is entered. For example, a company might have the following service states:

  • Customer identification
  • Service identification
  • Assign service agent
  • Waiting for service agent
  • Offering another service while waiting for agent
  • Offering callback
  • Callback pending
  • Delivering service
  • Waiting for customer input
  • Offering another service while delivering service

To implement these states you could create a State Business Attribute and map the above State.types to it. The list of Business Attribute values will then be available from the State Type property of this block. Note: The exact sequence of states depends entirely on the way in which the customer service application (such as an IVR or Agent Desktop application) is written.  

Tip
If using Context Services 8.5, the database for service/state information is the Genesys Mobile Services database. If using Context Services 8.1, the database for service/state information is the Universal Contact Server database. For more information, see General Guidelines for Context Services Preferences.
.

The Enter State block has the following properties. The behavior of some properties will vary depending on whether you are in offline or online mode.
