customer would like to have a Christmas greeting during the Christmas, what's the solution for that, create a new call handler or record Christmas greeting on alterante greeting from opening greeting then manually enable it on that specific day?
The short story is the easiest way to do this is to use the alternate greeting and activate it when its time. This is not a very satisfying answer since it cant be done for call handlers over the phone until the release of 4.0(1), however.
That said, theres a tricky way to pull off a holiday greeting with 3 call handlers, some duct tape and a little bailing wire that I detail in the Audio Text chapter of the book were working on. Ill be posting this chapter on AnswerMonkey probably after Thanksgiving its almost done, just gotta give it some spit and polish. Heres the brief version, however:
When a schedule is in holiday mode it just kicks into after hours- there is no holiday greeting on call handlers which would be nice to have but isnt there and it isnt on the roadmap. However, you can chain 3 call handlers together and make sure that calls only reach the 3rd call handler when its a holiday and no other time.
Call Handler A first call handler, could be the opening greeting. Create a schedule called day schedule thats active during business hours (i.e. 8am to 5 pm or whatever). Make sure it honors holidays. Record an appropriate standard greeting and have the after greeting action go to wherever you want (i.e. the operator call handler). Set the after hours greeting to be blank and set it to send to the greeting for Call Handler B.
Call Handler B Create a schedule called night schedule thats active during off hours (i.e. 5pm to 8am) and make sure that it honors holidays. Record a standard greeting that plays what you like (i.e. were closed right now ) and have the after greeting action go where you like (for instance to the example interview handler). Set the off hours greeting to be blank and have its after greeting action to the greeting for Call Handler C.
Call Handler C Set its alternate greeting active so it plays all the time it doesnt matter what schedule its associated with then. Record your holiday greeting here (i.e. Happy Holidays! Were closed ) and have the after greeting action set to do what you want with the call.
So when a call comes in during business hours it hits call handler A and the standard greeting plays. When the call comes in after hours it passes through A and goes to B and its standard greeting plays because you have it associated with the mirror opposite of the day time schedule. This means the only way a call could ever hit Handler C is if its a holiday since during Holidays Unity forces the off hours event which will force it to fall through A and then B and finally hit C. This way you can record the upcoming holiday greeting in C and leave it.
It'll work automatically with this solution... just be sure to record the appropriate greeting for the upcoming holiday before it gets there... you wouldn't want your Thanksgiving holiday greeting playing during Christmass for instance.
You define holidays in the SA under "holidays" - when that date comes around, any schedule that is set to "observe holidays" will assume it's inactive for that day regardless of what it's schedule settings are.
So what you said" hornor holiday" in prevoius answer actually means enable "obeserve holiday", doesn't it? So when holiday comes, the system will consider that day as after hour and treat it with after hour action. Right? No matter day time or night, call will pass A and B, finally send to C. Is this how your solution actually works?

The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
