Cisco Unity Call Handler No Response from Caller and After Hours Routing



Our Cisco voice landscape covers a lot of ground: multiple hospitals, office buildings, and very many (ever adding on) isolated medical practices in the Region. Currently I need to resolve one problem, the night routing, and, I’m also trying to standardize as much as possible for all of our sites the way we handle things like Call Handlers, Routing to Answering Service, etc. So I would be very grateful if you could  help to clarify two things:


  1. No Response to Call Handler Choices:  When a caller is presented to a call handler with various menu choices, the greeting plays twice, caller makes no choices (known some places as ‘No Response’):

Question: When the caller does not respond to menu choices how do you then route the call straight to a DN (NOT to a Call Handler,  user with mailbox, Interview, Conversation, etc.).  In this case it involves a medical practice and when a caller makes no keypad choices we want to route the call straight to the front desk. (much the same as ‘rotary or pulse’ callers used to be handled.


  1. After Hours Routing to Answering Service: For the same medical practice we have a schedule of 8-430 M-F governing the Call Handler. Outside those hours we want the caller routed directly to the medical practice’s answering service.

Question: What is the best/simplest way to route calls directly to the practice’s answering service during the non-business hours?  


I'll be glad to provide any additional detail as may be helpful, and thank you  for your past support.
