Procedure

With Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise 8.x, when a CTIOS agent receives a call, the CTIOS desktop comes to the forefront. If you need to make the CTIOS desktop stay in the background, perform the procedure mentioned in this section.

This is possible with the help of the MainScreen key, which is located at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Cisco Systems, Inc.\CTIOS\ <CTIOSInstanceName>\<CTIOSServerName>\ EnterpriseDesktopSettings\All Desktops\ ScreenPreferences\ Name\MainScreen]. This includes registry values that define the behavior of softphone windows and icons in response to an incoming call.

These are the lists of the registry values for the MainScreen key:

Registry Value Name Description
BringToFrontOnCall When enabled (1), the softphone window is raised above all other windows when a BeginCallEvent occurs.
FlashOnCall When enabled (1), the softphone icon on the taskbar flashes when a BeginCallEvent occurs.
RecordingEnabled Controls whether the Record button is enabled on the Agent and Supervisor Softphones (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled).
AgentStatistics IntervalSec Controls how often (in seconds) the Agent and Supervisor Softphones update time-in-state agent statistics.

In order to make the CTIOS desktop stay in the background, you need to set the BringToFrontOnCall to zero (0). By default, this value is set to 1, which brings the CTIOS desktop to the forefront when the call comes in.
