I'm trying to do something a little odd. We have the business hour set to kick in on our main number at 5pm on weekdays. I have also set up a hunt group with a different pilot number from our main number.
I'd like to see if I can set up a business hour style setting for the hunt group pilot number.
So, if our main number is 208-555-1212 and that has the business hour settings and I'd like to have the same option on the hunt group pilot number of 208-336-1554
Is something like that possible?? If so, how?
you can use time of day call routing
have a look at the below document
and this example
hope this help
if helpful Rate
I think the nearest you can get to time of day routing on CME is "Night Sevice"
I set added the night service bell as shown below:
label Call Center
description Call Center
name D. Davis - 800 Line
call-forward busy 6000
call-forward noan 6000 timeout 10
hold-alert 30 originator
I tested the phone after 5:30 pm, which is when the main phone number goes into its night service mode. The phone just rang through as normal, there was no message saying we're closed, like it happens when the main number is called after hours........
You might want to look into the B-ACD scripting add-ons from our friend Paolo
I appreciate that site, but the company isn't going to let us spend any money on a fix.......I work for a state agency, and are on super tight budgets
That is indeed good news. Do you have any experience scripting within CUE?
The idea is that you would intercept calls coming into your main number via translation patterns and send them into your CUE script.
The CUE script can check time of day / day of week and use the Call Redirect step to send the call to different places depending on that. CUE also has a whole business hours setting to make it nice and easy.
You can also use the CUE module to send callers out of hours direct to a voicemail box.
EDIT: Just found this link http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/unity_exp/rel7_0/administrator/script/nssamp.html
Looks pretty close to what you are trying to achieve.
CUE scripting is very, very flexible and one of the best features of the product IMHO. You can do some very clever things with it.
No, I'm afraid I don't have experiece with scripting for CUE......
I'm a Windows server guy who has been thrust into the world of VOIP/Cisco Call Manager......
it's not as hard as it looks. The Script editor has kind of a VB look at feel to it.
I'll knock up a quick basic script for you and post it here with some brief instructions.
You will need to download the CUE Script Editor for the version of CUE you are running; you can get this from the download section of CCO, although you will need a CCO account for that.
