Format Object

Format objects contain fields that form a structure for a database table. Outbound Contact provides two default Format objects: Default_Outbound_ 6 (for backward compatibility) and Default_Outbound_70. By default, both of these objects contain Genesys mandatory fields only.

  1. In Genesys Administrator, go to Provisioning > Outbound Contact > Formats.
  2. Click New.
  3. On the Configuration tab, define the fields, as in the following subsection.
  4. On the Options tab, define option(s) in the default section.
  5. Click Save and Close.

Populating Format with Fields

  • To populate a newly created Format object (currently empty) and with fields (all mandatory and perhaps some custom fields).


  1. After creating and saving a Format object, in the Details panel, double-click the format.
  2. In the Navigation panel, click the Fields tab.
  3. In the Details panel, click Add.
  4. From the Field dialog box, select one or more fields that you want to include in the Format object.
    Note: These fields were created by default as part of the Default_Outbound_6 and Default_Outbound_70 formats.
  5. To customize this format with user-defined field(s), in the Field dialog box, click New.
  6. Define the field(s) following the procedures in the section Creating a New Field Object.
    Note: Do not remove mandatory fields.

    Warning: You cannot delete a format if it is associated with a Table Access object or Filter object. You cannot modify existing fields after you associate the format with a Table Access object.

  7. Click OK in the Field dialog box.
  8. Click Save and Close.
