Campaign Group Object
A Campaign Group is the main configuration object in Outbound Contact. It can be found in the Campaign Groups tab within the Campaign object in Genesys Administrator > Provisioning tab > Outbound Contact. The Campaign Group is defined as a Campaign (a set of calling lists) that is assigned to work resources such as an Agent Group or a Place Group.
The following sections describe how to configure a Campaign Group object:
Creating a New Campaign Group Object
- In Genesys Administrator, select Provisioning > Outbound Contact > Campaigns.
- In the Details pane, double-click a Campaign.
- Select the Campaign Groups tab.
- Click New.
- Define the fields in the Configuration tab.
Note: The following sections (General Section, Advanced Section, and Connection Section) describe how to configure this tab.
- Configure the Options tab.
- Configure the Permissions tab.
- Click Save and Close.
Required; The format is [Campaign@CampaignGroup]. Automatically populated by the system.
Required; Automatically populated by the system.
Required; The name of the Campaign that will form the Name field above. Automatically populated by the system.
Required; The type of group (agent or place). Automatically populated by the system.
Required; The name of the group that will form the Name field above.
Optional; the default value is [Blank]. A brief description of the campaign.
Required; default is checked. A check box that indicates that customer interaction can be directed to this target. A more complete description can be found in Framework Genesys Administrator Help.
Required; the default value is [Predictive]. Any of the modes that are described in Dialing Modes.
Voice Transfer Destination
Required; the default value is [None]. Identifies where calls are to be delivered for handling. In addition to the Voice Transfer Destination DN, any ACD Queue, Virtual Queue, Routing Point, or Service Number DN that might be part of a call flow that involves this group of agents or places must be specified as an Origination DN in the Advanced section of the Agent Group or Place Group objects in Genesys Administrator. OCS needs to monitor these DNs to identify "foreign" inbound or outbound calls that are delivered to agents but were not issued by OCS on behalf of the Campaign Group, or if the ACD Queue DN is configured as an "overflow" DN.
Required; the default value is [Manual]. Not used at this time.
Optimization Method and Optimization Method Value
Required in Predictive mode; the default value is [Agent Busy Factor] for Optimization Method, and the default value is  for the Optimization Method Value. These parameters work together to determine how busy the campaign will be. They are not applicable to Push Preview and Power GVP dialing modes.
Maximum Queue Size
Optional; the default value is . Determines the number of records to keep in the dialer's queue. It is an internal counter that is used when OCS performs with Power GVP or Push Preview modes. OCS tries to always keep dialer's buffer full with the specified Maximum Queue Size.
Optional; the default value is [Blank]. Specifies the IVR Profile that is specified in the GVP EMPS IVR Profile. The ivr-profile-name option uses the value specified in this field.
Optional; the default value is [None]. Specifies a configuration object that is created in the Scripts section in Genesys Administrator > Provisioning > Routing/eServices by Interaction Routing Designer when developing a Business Process to process outbound Preview mode interactions. For more information, see the Universal Routing Business Process User's Guide. An Interaction Queue is used in Push Preview mode only.
Optional; the default value is [None]. Defines the Script object that contains all of the attributes that are required by Agent Scripting. For more information, see the "Attaching Script Information to OCS User Events and Telephony Events" section in the Outbound Contact Reference Manual for more information.
Trunk Group DN DBID
Required only if you are using Outbound Contact in an Outbound VoIP environment. If specified, OCS uses this DN as the DN from on behalf of which outbound and engaging calls originate. The name of the Trunk Group DN is the same as the partition-id value specified in SIP Server, which determines the resource allocation for calls made from this Trunk Group DN.
|Note:||For additional information about configuring an Outbound-IP environment, see Outbound-VoIP in ASM Dialing Modes.|
Minimum Record Buffer Size/Optimal Record Buffer Size
Required; the default value is  for Minimum and the default value is  for Optimal. Acts as a multiplier for the number of agents that are available for a campaign. Together, the Minimum and Optimal values determine how many records OCS keeps in memory when performing traditional campaigns. Because there might be no agents for the Push Preview and Power GVP dialing modes, these parameters are used differently by OCS as a percentage of the desired Maximum Queue Size value. For example, you can set them to Min: 100%, Opt: 150-200%.
Number of Channels
Identifies the maximum number of channels (or ports), that a Campaign Group can use to place calls. This max number is used in: Progressive, Predictive, Progressive with seizing, Predictive with seizing, and Progressive GVP dialing modes.
The Connections section enables you to specify all server connections (besides T-Server) that are required to run a dialing session for an outbound campaign in a certain dialing mode for a particular Campaign Group.
|Note:||This type of connection provides basic host/port connectivity only. It does not provide features such as Advanced Disconnect Detection Protocol (ADDP). Also, you can add your application to the Connections tab of the OCS Application object in order to configure any additional connection parameters.|
