Enabling Audio on Preview or Ringing

The following table describes the steps required to enable an audio file to play, in a loop, when UC Connector displays a Preview or Ringing pop-up window.

Objective Related Procedure and Action

Key Notes

  • To specify the location of a file in the UC Connector installation, place the file in the UCC-install/webapps directory or any of its subdirectories. For example, if an audio file 'ring.mp3' is placed in UCC-install/webapps/audio/, then the value for the audio-on-ring or audio-on-preview option should be /audio/ring.mp3.
  • These options are only applicable when UC Connector is used in non-gateway mode (presence-gateway-mode is set to false).
  • This feature supports .mp3, .ogg and .wav formats, but not all audio formats are supported by all browsers. HTML5 is used to play the audio file, which is not supported by Internet Explorer 8. For information on audio formats and browser support as of the time this document was last updated, see the Audio Formats and Browser Support table.

Customizing Knowledge Worker States

The following table describes the steps required to configure customized Knowledge Worker states and display customizable menus. For general information about this feature, see Customized Knowledge Worker States.

Objective Related Procedure and Action
1. Modify or override the presence definition document.

The UC Connector application is initially installed with a default presence definition document called presence.xml file. This file contains the two states available in releases prior to 8.0.300:

  • Set Do Not Disturb On
  • Set Do Not Disturb Off

You can modify this file or create your own XML file to override the default. See Presence definition document for details.

2. Enable customized Knowledge Worker states.

In the UC-Connector section of the UC Connector Application object, configure the following:

  • presence-location—Set to the location of the presence.xml file.

Enabling a Redirect Number

The following table describes the steps required for either a Knowledge Worker or an Administrator to enable an external redirect number. Enabling this feature allows Knowledge Workers to accept preview calls at the specified number. For general information about this feature, see External Number Redirect.

Objective Related Procedure and Action
Enable the redirect setup.

To allow all users to set and enable their own redirect number using the Setup menu option in the UC Connector web client:

  • In the UC-Connector section of the UC Connector Application object, set the option redirect-setup-enabled to true.

To allow a specific user to set and enable his or her own redirect number:

  • In the Persons > Annex > UC-Connector section, set the option redirect-setup-enabled to true. This option overwrites the value of the application-level redirect-setup-enabled option.

To set and enable the redirect number for a Person:

  • In the Persons > Annex > UC-Connector section, set the redirect-number option to the number.
  • In the Persons > Annex > UC-Connector section, set the redirect-enabled option to true.

Enabling After Call Work

When an agent enters the After Call Work state, the agent's presence state is preserved in Genesys until the agent uses the Lync client menu to change state, or the After Call Work timer expires. The agent’s presence state is also propagated to the Lync server so that the agent's unavailability is reflected in the corresponding Lync presence, with a configurable presence status and note values.

When the agent exits the After Call Work state (either automatically or manually), the agent's Lync presence state is set back to a value that is preserved from the Lync presence update. The agent's Genesys state is also updated with the corresponding value.

The following table describes the steps required to configure the presence and note values for the After Call Work and Legal Guard states.

Objective Related Procedure and Action
Enable After Call Work.

In the Microsoft-OCS section of the UC Connector Application object, configure the following:

  • presence-acw-note—Enter the note UC Connector uses when an agent enters the After Call Work State.
  • presence-acw-status—Enter a positive integer between 1 and 18500.
Enable Legal Guard.

In the Microsoft-OCS section of the UC Connector Application object, configure the following:

  • presence-lg-note—Enter the note UC Connector uses when an agent exits the After Call Work state and enters the Legal Guard state.
  • presence-lg-status—Enter a positive integer between 1 and 18500.
