"Whisper page" CRS Workaround Reporting

Unanswered Question

If I implement "whisper page", where I select a resource, play a prompt, then connect the caller, will this skew the reports to the affect where every call would count twice in reports? The script gets user info, rings the agent (auto-answer w/headset), play a prompt, drops that call, rings in immediately with the customer call to the same agent.

If anyone knows how to avoid "counting" the "annoucement" call, please advise.

Agents can make them Ready and start taking calls. It is also recommended that agent's phone has "Call Waiting" turned off.

Did you notice where this additional whisper call skewed your statistics?

I'm getting ready to implement this for a customer and I'm curious if it doubled your report numbers.

It most definitally will skew the reports. By a lot in some cases. It doubles the call counts, greatly drags down your average handle time, etc. This is why this is a bad workaround.

I would challange the customer to look at CAD for enterprise data (or use CAD instead of IPPA if applicable) to see whatever information you are trying to whisper to them.
