UCCX 10.0 with Finesse (multiline support)

Hi,

I just read in the Design Guide

Cisco Finesse does not support the configuration of multiple lines on the agent phones. Use phones that are
configured with a single line (single number) for Finesse agents and supervisors.
 
Does it mean that an Agent cannot have more than one extension on his phone (example: 1 ACD line and 1 personnal line)
 
Thank you

Hello-Correct.In the 10.5(1)

Hello-

Correct.

In the 10.5(1) release notes it states that Multiline support was added.

10.5(1) Release notes: http://goo.gl/w3mwY5

Finesse Multiline Support

Finesse supports the use of multiple lines on agent phones. You can configure one or more secondary lines on an agent phone. Although the agent's ACD line must be in button positions 1 - 4, the first four lines (ACD and non-ACD lines) on the phone are observed for setting the agent's state.

Direct Transfer Across Line (DTAL) and Join Across Line (JAL) are not supported.

Hi Lyne,

There are some discrepancies in the documentation for the multi-line support in Finesse.

Multiline Support

This release of Cisco Finesse supports the configuration of multiple lines on agent phones when Unified CCE or Unified CCX is configured for multiline.

You can configure one or more lines on an agent phone. However, Finesse blocks any events that it receives from the CTI server about call activity on an agent's non-primary (non-ACD lines). That is, Finesse blocks events it receives about any lines other than the line that the agent signed in with. These events are not published to Finesse clients, which means that information about calls handled on the agent's non-ACD lines does not appear on the Finesse desktop.

For example, Agent A uses a non-ACD line to make a call to Agent B's primary extension (ACD line). The call does not appear on Agent A's desktop. Because Agent B receives the call on the primary extension, the call does appear on Agent B's desktop.

In a Unified CCE deployment, the call appears on Agent B's desktop in the format X.Y.n, where X is the agent's primary extension, Y is the extension of the non-ACD line, and n is the line number (for example, 1197.2297.2).

In a Unified CCX deployment, the call appears on Agent B's desktop in the format X.Y, where X is the agent's primary extension and Y is the extension of the non-ACD line (for example, 1197.2297).

For information about the total number of lines you can configure on an agent phone, refer to the Design Guide for your platform. For Unified CCE, see the Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Design Guide (http:/?/?www.cisco.com/?c/?en/?us/?support/?customer-collaboration/?unified-contact-center-enterprise/?products-implementation-design-guides-list.html). For Unified CCX, see the Cisco Unified Contact Center Express Design Guide (http:/?/?www.cisco.com/?c/?en/?us/?support/?customer-collaboration/?unified-contact-center-express/?products-implementation-design-guides-list.html).
