Caller Inputs for Greetings

Unanswered Question

User Badges:

For a given call handler, can the caller input section be defined differently for the standard and closed greeting? For instance, I wanted the callers calling in after hours to be able to press 1 for the Security Guard subscriber. During the day I want the callers to press 1 for a different subscriber.<br><br>

Can you transfer to an extension that is not a subscriber?

We have some Call Handlers that we want to ring a specific hallway extension that does not have voicemail. So, if we could transfer to an extension on input from the keyboard or set up a subscriber that won't accept messages, I think we can achieve this.

Two questions:

1) How do we configure Call Input transfer to extension in a Call Handler?

2) If we can't transfer to an extension on caller input, can we set up a subscriber that maps to an extension and doesn't have a VM box?

you can use Call handlers for this (that's one of the things they're for). You can set the call handler up to transfer to any number you want and they aren't tied to a subscriber unless you configure them to take a message for a particular user which is not what you're looking to do here.

To do the one key transfer simply setup the call handler with the alternate trasnfer rule enabled and active and set to dial the hallway extension you want. In the one key map for the opening greeting (or where ever you want this) set the key to "attempt transfer for" the call handler you created.

If you have a bunch of handlers you need to create for a large number of extensions, you can consider using the BulkHandlerCreate tool on AnswerMonkey.net which will allow you to slurp in a CSV file or create a range of handler extensions for such things.
