Switches

As part of the Framework configuration and installation, you will have already assigned agent names, agent logins, and DNs (see DNs in the Planning Worksheet) to switches.

In most systems, the telephone directly notifies the switch when the telephone set (teleset) status changes.19for example, when agents begin or end a call. By default, Outbound Contact registers teleset states internally. Older PBX software does not enable the teleset to notify the switch directly when its status changes. If the contact center's PBX software does not enable direct notification, you must customize the contact center's teleset state disposition. Use configuration settings that instruct Outbound Contact to send Framework's T-Server a notice for each teleset status change. For more information, see Outbound Contact Configuration Options.

The following refer to the capabilities of a switch:

  • Name(s)--A switch set up during Framework configuration. Other switches can include numbers and types of all telephony devices (DNs) to be monitored and controlled through the CTI (computer-telephony integration) link. Enter the switch name(s) to be used for Outbound Contact. If new switches are needed, they must be added through Framework.
  • CPD capability--Does the switch have call-progress detection (CPD) capabilities? If the switch does not provide call-progress detection, and you wish to use CPD Server as a part of Outbound Contact for the contact center, collect the following information about the Dialogic boards:
    • Call transferring--Does the switch have this capability?
    • Call conferencing--Does the switch have this capability?
    • Call forwarding--Does the switch have this capability?
    • Do Not Disturb--Does the switch have this capability?

Special DNs

Overflow DN

Outbound Contact monitors calls that cannot be handled by available agents. It does this through a DN set up as an Overflow DN.

  • Existing DN name--Enter the name or number of the overflow DN.

User-Defined Fields

A calling list must contain Genesys mandatory fields, and it can also contain user-defined fields. For more information about mandatory fields, see Field Object and Format Object. The user must create additional fields, containing business information that is used for sorting and chaining records--for example, Last_Name.

  • Name--Enter the name of the user-defined field--for example, cust_id.
  • Data type--Enter the type of data, for example, the data type for cust_id would be int, and must always be numeric.
  • Length--Enter the number of characters needed for field contents.19for example, cust_id can be limited to five numeric characters.
  • Default value (optional)--Enter the value that will be assigned to the field unless it is changed.

Formats

A format contains a collection of Genesys mandatory fields and user-defined fields. It defines the layout of a calling list. More than one format can be created and named for the specific needs of particular calling lists.

Identify the number of formats that you need, assign names to them, and identify the user-defined fields required for each.

Note: Plan and create your formats and all custom fields carefully. You cannot modify existing fields or add new fields after the calling list table is created in Genesys Administrator.
  • Name--Enter the name of format.

Dialing Filters

Dialing filters select records from a calling list for dialing, based on specified criteria. They can be created in Configuration Manager or in Genesys Administrator and stored in the Filters view in Genesys Administrator > Provisioning tab > Outbound Contact. For more information, see Filter Object.

  • Name--Enter the name of the dialing filter.
  • Criteria SQL statement--Enter the SQL statements that give the criteria for the filter.
  • Order by SQL statement--Enter the field on which the list will be sorted.

Calling Lists

Calling lists contain dialing records. Decide where you will store the calling lists. They can be located either in the Genesys Configuration Database or in a separate database.
