Giving a User Some Options and Allowing them To Enter a 5 Digit Extension.
I am trying to script the following prompt. I usually do this via a "Menu Step" with the difference that I have never given the user the opportunity to enter a single digit or a 5 number extension. We also give the users the option to press 2 to be connected to billing, but most of our 5 digit extensions begin with 2.
“Thank you for calling. To continue in Spanish, please press 8. To reach the Emergency Room, please press one, billing press two, Medical Records press three, Radiology, Mammography and MRI, press four, Human Resources, press five. If you know your party’s five-digit extension, please dial it now or wait for the next available operator. Thank you.”
Any assistance in the matter is greatly appreciated.
I would use Get Digits instead of Menu, with a maximum digit length of 5, and an interdigit timeout of no more than 3 seconds... If the result is 5 digits long, you've got an extension number, and if it's 1 digit long, you've got your menu choice. Anything else, you can do your "next available operator" routing, or replay the prompt.
Thank you for all your help Jameson, I almost have my script up and running. The only part that I am having problems with is with the Get Digit string. If I set the input value to 5, and I enter a single digit, the call is routed to the "Unsuccessful" step. If I set the input value to 1 and I enter a 5 Digit extension, it ignores the remaining 4 digits. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
