It's pretty simple actually.  Here's all you'd need to do (if you have these components already, good - I'm just laying them out for clarity):


Assumption - you already have the main line number routing to Unity for call treatment (i.e., it is not directly answered by any users).


1) Create a Call Handler.  Ex: MainLine_CH

2) Create a custom schedule.  Use the one schedule to identify Open hours vs. Closed hours.  Ex: M-F_8A-5P

3) Apply the custom schedule (M-F_8A-5P) to the Call Handler (MainLine_CH).

4) Record a STANDARD greeting for the Call Handler.  This would map to any caller input options you have to whatever it is you want the caller to hear.

5) On the same Call Handler, go to the CLOSED greeting.  ENABLE the CLOSED greeting.  Record the CLOSED greeting and configure any transfer options, caller input options, or hang-up options based on how you want callers to be treated when the office is closed.


That's it.  During hours marked as Open in the custom schedule, callers hear the STANDARD greeting.  During all other hours marked as Closed in the custom schedule, callers hear the CLOSED greeting.

For question 2 check the Directories URL used by your phones (see Enterprise Parameters). By default it includes the hostname rather than the server IP address. If you do not have DNS enabled on the phones and the appropriate entries added for your servers the directory lookup will fail.


Hope this helps!

Anis,


I can help you with CUC and what you need to do.  First, I am assuming you want to handler your Main Office number differently in the day (i.e., Open hours) vs. when the office is Closed.  Is this correct?  If so, how are calls handled to the Main Office number currently?

Hey David,


let me explain you very simply that the Customer working hours are from 8am to 5pm and the non-working hours are from 5pm till next day morning 8am ...... now customer wants me to configure a different prompt for working hours (from 8am till 5pm) and different prompt for non-working hours (after 5pm till next day 8am) .....


currently i have configured only one prompt which is playing 24hours a day ......


For achieving above task, I tried by configure a schedule with the time duration of non-woking hours & selected that schedulaer in non-wokring hours handler ..... now if i call in non-working hours, still its playing the prompt of working hours !!!!!


tell me how to accomplish the above requirment.... I have CUC 7


Thanks,
