Manually Switch Between Open and Closed Attendant

Unanswered Question
Jul 10th, 2009

Is there a way to allow users to manually switch the auto attendant from an open version to a closed version? Night Service doesn't seem like it would be what i want but maybe it is and i just don't understand how it works...

Thanks Much!

I have this problem too.

There is no way to do this. You would have to use night service and program a night service code to manually enable or disable the schedule. Here is a configuration tip. You could use different call forward targets pointing to different AA CUE scripts.

Also, if you just want to play a prompt after hours, here is a way to do it:

Marcos,

I actually came up with a way to do this. I need to test but I don't see how it wouldn't work. I've setup an extra line on the phone and set all incoming calls to it. I've setup 2 AAs one that is always open and one that is always closed. I am going to have the users then CFwdAll from the extra line to the day or night attendant. It'll require a little bit of education but should do just what this customer wants.

Thanks for your assistance!

That would work, but it would not be automated. You would be relying on the user's habit to do it.

Thanks,


Marcos
