Outbound Dialer calls the client but don't call the agent

Hi all,

I have a strange problem with Outbound Option in UCCE 7.5(6).

I have configured "PREVIEW_ONLY" in admin script. The behavior is below:

- the campain starts;

- I can see the call in "CTI Toolkit outbound desktop"(here I don;t see any call to agent's phone);

- I am pressing "Accept";

- The system calls the client;

- The "client" answers the call;

- I don't have any call to agent's phone.

What could be the problem here?I verified the VIP's CSS. The dialer ports can dial in the agent's partition.

Many thanks in advance,


P.S: Call tracer output is below.(I have only one agent in outboud skill group with extension 1270)

> DialedNumber (8000) using CallType (Outbound.CT- 5000)

Ensure you have call waiting configured on the agent line. The reservation call arrives at CTIOS, and you press accept. The Dialer calls the customer from a "phone" on the Dialer, and when the customer answers, wants to transfer the back end of the call to the agent on top of the reservation call, and then drop the reservation call from underneath. This is done so the agent is not seen as available to the Router.

Check CUCM and set up call waiting on the line.

If you are going to use PREVIEW, and I really like preview, I strongly suggest PREVIEW_DIRECT. This has a number of advantages that will be obvious when you try it - the agent hears full call progress.

Hi Geoff again,

Thanks for your answer.

I verified once again call waiting on agent's line.

Is ok. I have call waiting configured(4/2).

Do you have another ideea about what should I verify?

Hi all,

I resolved the issue.

The problem was that I had some issues with my microphone(customer phone was an IP Communicator on my laptop).

The system called the customer, didn't detect any human voice and didn't connect with the agent :-)

In conclusion was a feature not an issue :-)

Thank you Geoff for your help!

FYI Geoff, checkout the release notes for 7.5(6), call waiting is no longer required on the agent phone. Basically the PG now simulates a call rather than

initiating a true physical call to the phone. Pretty nice update I gotta say.

in response to "Basically the PG now simulates a call rather thaninitiating a true physical call to the phone."  I have a customer who went nuts after upgrading to ICM 7.5(9) - they say agents now can't hear their phones ringing when getting reservation calls for personal callback.

Is there any other way to go the good old way ie having "real" reservation calls?

By the way, the release notes for ICM 7.5(6) do not exist. I can see it for the 7.5(5) and for the 7.5(7) release, but no 7.5(6).
