Hi Bill,
That commenting feature is awesome!! I will have to go through my vectors and place a comment where appropriate.. Thanks for that tip..

I made the changes and added what you suggested. I still am losing the call when the option is selected. Am I missing something; I have pated my new vector below for your review.

Vector
Number: 22 Name: MSC_Announcemen
Multimedia? n Attendant Vectoring? n Meet-me Conf? n Lock? n
Basic? y EAS? n G3V4 Enhanced? y ANI/II-Digits? y ASAI Routing? y

01 wait-time 2 secs hearing silence
02 collect 10 digits after announcement 5733
03 queue-to split 10 pri h

04 # Annc for BP Xfer
05 Collect 1 digits after announcement 5744
06 # Step for BP Xfer
07 goto step 19 if digits = 5
08 announcement 5707
09 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
10 announcement 5708
11 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
12 announcement 5743
13 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
14 announcement 5709
15 wait-time 20 secs hearing music
16 announcement 5711
17 wait-time 2 mins hearing music
18 goto step 6 if unconditionally
19 route-to number 5780 with cov y if unconditionally
19 stop

5780 is the virtual extension that I created which points to:
Cov pat 28 which points to:
Coverage remote entry 2

If I dial 5780 from a CM phone I get the coverage tone and the call transfers as intended; when I dial into the call center from my mobile phone and press “5” after the announcement the call gets disconnected.

Solution Delivered A Few Suggestions...

Joe:

Let's tackle the main question first. Then a few details.



First, that route-to should work. However I don't know wha't going on in your switch. And the vector needs work. There are two diaglostic tools that I regularly use on vectors . . .
  1. I start with the "display events" command and select the vector This tells you if the vector is at fault.
  2. Next I would use run: "list trace station 5780" in the emulator to see what happens when vector processing tries 5780.
  3. If that does not would you can also use "li tra vdn 9999" where "9999" = the VDN for vec 22. This lets you watch the vector processing in its entirety until the route-to command runs.
If you want to figure this out yourself, try running through the above before you look at my comments below.
================================================== ==========
01 wait-time 2 secs hearing silence
02 collect 10 digits after announcement 5733 . . . . . . . . {[This is not doing anything--remove or comment]}
03 queue-to split 10 pri h . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .{[I usually recommend a pri of "m" so you can escalate later if needed. A RONA vector is a good example.]}
04 # Annc for BP Xfer
05 Collect 1 digits after announcement 5744 . . . . . . . . .{[How many choices are there in this announcement/menu?]}
06 # Step for BP Xfer
07 goto step 19 if digits = 5 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .{[I would insert a wait-time step here to give the caller a chance to respond. What are these subsequent announcements meant to do?]}
08 announcement 5707
09 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
10 announcement 5708
11 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
12 announcement 5743
13 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
14 announcement 5709
15 wait-time 20 secs hearing music
16 announcement 5711
17 wait-time 2 mins hearing music
18 goto step 6 if unconditionally . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .{[This should goto step 4 as yoiu need to include the collect step for this to work]}
19 route-to number 5780 with cov y if unconditionally
19 stop . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . {[surely this is not a second step 19?]}

If I knew what each announcement said, I might have more suggestions. In any case, it might be better to reorder the vector like so:

01 wait-time 0 secs hearing ringback . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .{[ The way I was taught to do this]}
02 goto step 22 if staffed-agents in skill 1st < 1 . . . . . . . {[This insures there are agents to take calls or the calls go to 5780]}
03 # Q calls at MEDIUM Priority
04 queue-to skill 10 pri m
05 announcement 691015
06 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
07announcement 5707
08 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
09 announcement 5708
10 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
11 announcement 5743
12 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
13 announcement 5709
14 wait-time 20 secs hearing music
15 announcement 5711
16 wait-time 2 mins hearing music . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . {[2 minutes is a pretty long wait time. This may cause some frustration and abandons]}
17 # BP Xfer announcement and
18 Collect 1 digits after announcement 5744
19 goto step 22 if digits = 5
20 wait-time 5 secs hearing silence
21 goto step 5 if unconditionally
22 route-to number 5780 with cov y if unconditionally
23 stop

Bills method will work as desired , the only disadvantages are that it consumes a station licence and with your route to statement having coverage Y , it will leave vector processing ,in this scenario if the route to number is busy the call will drop , the original method you tried will retain the call in the vector and you can process to further steps in the vector.

But what ever works best for you.

What about the COR on the vdn , is that restricting via toll tables or something ??

Dial the VDN from your station and list trace your station and post the results.

Hi Richa good to have you join the discussion. This is turning into quite a lively one.

May I offer these comments. You may not have noticed that I recommented a virtual extension. Plese see attached.

These do not use a station license as no port is required. Also I have never found that this method produces call blocking unless, of course, all trunk group (TG) members are already in use. Does this help?

I agree Bill missed the fact you stated virtual , indeed as you state this will not consume a licence , but the cor of the vdn/virtual station could still cause the dialling out to be affected.

Hello Bill and Richa,
I have verified that the COR on the VDN is setup correctly. I performed the following tests:

I called into the call center from my extension and rather than use the virtual extension, I used the toll-free number; that call went through without a hitch. Then I called into the call center using my mobile phone and after pressing "5" the call drops.

When I use the virtual extension the call process seems to get stuck when going to step 20 which is the transfer out to the toll free number.

The reason I have the steps in the beginning of the vector is so that I can test it quickly without having to listen to all of the announcements. This is on a live system so my window is limited. I pretty much inherited this system and have learned most of what I know from helpful folks like you and some vendors I have a good relationship with. You have no idea how much I appreciate your taking the time out to help me with this issue. This options will allow our callers to be transferred to another service we have so that they will not have to wait in queue so long.

I am going to try to create a Testing VDN/Vector that will have the same steps as the one I am trying to get working so as to be able to test this better.

Solution Delivered Build Your Tests in a Non-Production VDN/VEC Set.

Hey Joe,

I should have said this before . . . my bad!

When making a change in the production system, it is good proctice to make a copy of the vector and point to it with a non-DID (internal) VDN. That way you can mess with it to your hearts content without causing an issue.

So set it up like this . . .

01 wait-time 0 secs hearing ringback
02 goto step 12 if staffed-agents in skill 10 < 1 {[You could also set up a new split with no agents to speed this up.]}
03 # Q calls at MEDIUM Priority
04 queue-to skill 10 pri m
05 announcement 5707
06 wait-time 10 secs hearing music
07 # BP Xfer announcement and
08 Collect 1 digits after announcement 5744
09 goto step 12 if digits = 5
10 wait-time 5 secs hearing silence
11 goto step 7 if unconditionally
12 route-to number 5780 with cov y if unconditionally
13 stop
================================================== =

This will also make your trace and event list more productive as you will not be counting other normal work activity on the production VDN and VEC with your test data. Let's see what that looks like. Okay?

Ok i think i have the solution to your issue , instead of the way you have it set up try

route to number xxxxx with cov y if digit =5

Instead of the way you are trying to do it , i think your way would need the route to step to be directly underneath the collect statement.

I reckon that will work

In fact just replace step 7 with the statement i have provided you and this will work.Step 20 is no longer needed.
