Holiday Routing with Call Center Services-Contact Center
The holidays are fast approaching! Now is the perfect time to pre set your holiday routing and greetings.
Here are the steps to create Holiday routing and greetings in My OfficeSuite using Call Center Services - Contact Center. If you don’t have Call Center Services – Contact Center please reach out to your sales Representative for information and pricing.
First, Log into the MyOfficeSuite Portal, locate the Auto Attendant widget and Click Configure
The following screen will appear.
Select Set Receptionist greeting. The following screen will appear. You will have three options to choose from. Upload an audio file, record an audio greeting or choose text to speech.
Record the holiday greeting. In this example the Holiday Auto Attendant is extension 714. You can have one or more holiday Auto Attendants or use on generic Auto Attendant. For more information about recording a new greeting click here.
Next, access your Contact Center account to establish Holiday Schedule under Resources, select Schedule, and then Holidays.
Now it’s time to set the holiday routing using the holiday schedule under the Conditional Routes tab:
In the case below, we used Extension 593 as the Conditional Route, with incoming calls directed to the 500 ACD Queue as the fall-through. Once calls pass through our established rules, on non-holidays, they will go to ACD 500.
In setting up the Rule for the Conditional Routing, link the schedule and specify where the call should go when the queue is called on those dates. In this case, the call will be transferred to a Holiday Auto Attendant. For this example it’s the 714 shown below that was created in the first step
Go back to the MyOfficeSuite portal and in Incoming Call Routing, point the DID to the established Conditional Route, in this case, Route 593.
Calling the DID that points to Conditional Route 593 on the specified dates, will send the calls to the newly recorded Holiday greeting.
The Windstream Enterprise Community is a community of real people who collaborate on answers, solutions, and ideas about the Windstream Enterprise products and services they use. We invite you to become a member, but we do have a few rules. For everyone's sake, we are committed to enforcing these guidelines, as well as our community vendor's Terms of Service.
People will respect you more, engage with you more often, and treat you like a real person if you use your actual identity here. While not mandatory, it does help us identify accounts when we try to provide answers to specific questions.
We are into transparency, honesty, and truth. Do not misrepresent yourself or lie about your identity, affiliations, or age. Our community is based on the contributions of real people who put their reputations on the line. Be one of them.
Have (Good, Clean) Fun
We encourage the spirit of fun, so long as it does not hurt other people. Please do not use jokes, words or images that come at the expense of others. Be sensitive to other users around you, and do not post profane, sexual, or violent material.
Be Constructive with Your Criticism
The idea here is to foster healthy conversation and debate without ever attacking anyone personally. We take all questions, suggestions, and feedback seriously and will respond accordingly and so should you.
Spread the Wealth
Make our community a richer place by sharing your experience and insight. You may have the perfect answer to someone else's burning question. This is the substance of the Windstream Enterprise Community.
It is okay to talk up the products or services you love (or sell), but only if it is relevant to the conversation. If you are here to plant a ton of links to your Web site without doing much else, your posts are likely to be removed by a moderator.
Do Not Wrongfully Post Content
Make sure you have the right to publish any content you post to the Windstream Enterprise Community, and do not violate the privacy of others.
Be Fruitful, but Do Not Multiply
Do not create multiple accounts to violate these guidelines, game the system, or harass and deceive other users.
Trolls are users whose primary goal is to disrupt the community, attack other users, antagonize community managers, and are never interested in a productive outcome. If you engage in troll behavior, we will ask you to leave the Windstream Enterprise Community.
