Cisco WebAttendant Configuration


Cisco WebAttendant, a client-server application, allows you to set up Cisco IP phones as attendant consoles. Employing a graphical user interface, the Cisco WebAttendant client creates an attendant console that uses speed-dial buttons and quick directory access to look up phone numbers, monitor line status, and direct calls. A receptionist or administrative assistant can use the Cisco WebAttendant client to handle calls for a department or company, or another employee can use it to manage his own calls.

Use Cisco CallManager Administration to manage the Cisco Telephony Call Dispatcher, configure pilot points and hunt groups, and add or delete Cisco WebAttendant users.

This section describes the following configuration procedures for Cisco WebAttendants:

Pilot Point Configuration Settings

Use Table 24-2, which describes pilot point configuration settings, to complete procedures in the "Adding a Pilot Point" and "Viewing, Updating, or Deleting a Pilot Point" sections.

Table 24-2 Pilot Point Configuration Settings 

Field
Description

Pilot Name

Enter up to 50 alphanumeric characters, including spaces, to specify a descriptive name for the pilot point.

Device Pool

The device pool comprises a group of Cisco CallManagers in prioritized order. The first Cisco CallManager in the list represents the primary Cisco CallManager for the pilot point.

Partition

Choose None from the drop-down list box.

Cisco WebAttendant pilot points do not belong to partitions.

Calling Search Space

To designate the partitions that the pilot point searches when attempting to route a call, choose a calling search space from the drop-down list.

Pilot Number (DirN)

Enter a directory number into this field to designate a directory number for this pilot point.

Make sure this number is unique throughout the system (that is, it cannot be a shared line appearance).

Route Calls To

From the drop-down list, choose the First Available Hunt Group Member option to route incoming calls to the first available member of a hunt group.

From the drop-down list, choose the Longest Idle Hunt Group Member option to order members based on the length of time that each directory number or line remains idle.

If the voice-mail number is the longest idle member of the group, Cisco TCD will route the call to voice mail without checking the other members of the group first.


Configuring Hunt Groups

After you configure the pilot point, you must configure the hunt group. A hunt group comprises a list of destinations (either directory numbers or Cisco WebAttendant user /line numbers) that determine the call redirection order.

This section covers the following procedures:

Adding Hunt Group Members

Configuring Linked Hunt Groups

Viewing, Updating, or Deleting Hunt Group Members

Hunt Group Configuration Settings

Adding Hunt Group Members

This section describes how to add hunt group members.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Service > Cisco WebAttendant. The Pilot Point Configuration window displays.

Step 2 Choose the pilot point for which you want to add hunt group members. A list of available pilot points appears on the left side of the Pilot Point Configuration window.

Step 3 To add hunt group members to this pilot point, click the link to Hunt Group Configuration in the upper, right corner of the Pilot Point Configuration window. Figure 24-1 shows an example of the Hunt Group Configuration window.

Figure 24-1 Hunt Group Configuration Window

Step 4 Click Add Member. The Pilot Hunt Group Members list initially displays the text <<Not Configured>>.

Step 5 Decide whether the hunt group member you want to add will be a directory number (device member) or a user and line number (user member):

If you specify a directory number, Cisco TCD always attempts to route the call to that number.


Note Cisco TCD handles overflow conditions by routing calls to multiple Cisco WebAttendants or voice-mail numbers. In the Hunt Group Configuration window, check the Always Route Member check box, so the voice-mail number receives multiple calls at the same time.


If you specify a Cisco WebAttendant user and line number, Cisco TCD first checks whether the Cisco WebAttendant user is logged in to a Cisco WebAttendant client and online before attempting to route the call. When you specify a user and line number, the user can log in to and receive calls on any Cisco IP phone in the cluster controlled by Cisco WebAttendant.

Step 6 Enter the appropriate configuration settings for the new hunt group member as described in Table 24-3:

If the hunt group member is a directory number, fill in only the Partition and Directory Number fields in the Device Member Information section. The optional Always Route Member check box only applies to directory numbers.

If the hunt group member is a user and line number, fill in only the Cisco WebAttendant User Name and Line Number fields in the User Member Information section.


Note The User Name that you specify designates a Cisco WebAttendant User ID. This user name does not duplicate a User ID added through the Cisco CallManager User area of Cisco CallManager Administration.


As you make selections, the Hunt Group Member list box reflects the information that you choose. The Hunt Group Member list displays either the device directory number or the Cisco WebAttendant user name and line number; for example:

#1 Call directory number 35201 (directory number example)

#2 Direct Call to Mary Brown, Line 1 (user and line number example)

Step 7 To add more hunt group members to the pilot point, repeat Step 5 and Step 6.


Note To reorder the hunt group list, choose the member that you want to reorder from the list. Then, using the up and down arrows, move that member to a new position in the list.


Step 8 Click Update to save the hunt group member information and complete hunt group configuration.

Configuring Linked Hunt Groups

This section describes how to configure linked hunt groups.

Procedure


Step 1 For each hunt group in the chain, use the following information when performing Step 1 through Step 6 from the "Adding Hunt Group Members" section.

For all except the last hunt group in the chain, make sure that the final member of the hunt group is the pilot point for the next hunt group.


Caution Cisco strongly recommends that you do not include any other pilot point numbers (besides the final member) in the hunt group. Including other pilot point numbers in the hunt group may cause a continuous route loop.

Check the Always Route Member check box for only the final member of each hunt group.

To handle overflow conditions, choose a voice-mail or auto attendant number as the final member of the last linked hunt group in the chain. Check the Always Route Member check box to ensure that voice mail can handle multiple, simultaneous calls.

Step 2 After you configure each hunt group, click Update to save the information.


Caution Cisco strongly recommends that you do not link the last hunt group back to the first hunt group.

Step 3 Verify configuration of the linked hunt groups by reviewing the information that you entered in the previous steps.
