Viewing and Editing Settings

From the Edit menu, you or your system administrator can change the settings that affect your ability to use the Cisco CallManager Attendant Console. These settings allow the attendant console to interact with the attendant console server and the directory, which provides all directory information that is found in the Directory window.

Cisco recommends that you only change these settings if your system administrator tells you to do so.

Changing the Text Size

Cisco CallManager Attendant Console allows you to change the text size to meet your specifications. You can change the text size that displays in all windows, or you can change the text size that displays in a particular window.

To change the size of the text that displays in the windows, perform the following procedure:

The text size changes in the window(s).


Changing the Color Scheme

Cisco CallManager Attendant Console allows you to change the color scheme of the attendant console to meet your specifications. When you use the attendant console for the first time, the default color scheme, which is blue and white, displays.

To change the color scheme that displays, perform the following procedure:

Procedure


Step 1 From the View menu, choose Color Schemes.

Step 2 Choose one of the following options:

Default, which is blue and white

Brown

Emerald

Grey

Contrast, which displays as white upon a light grey background

The color scheme changes on the attendant console.


Locking the Window Size and Layout

You can lock the window size and layout by choosing View > Lock Windows. This action ensures that the window size does not change and the windows display exactly as you want them to display.


Tip To unlock the layout, choose View > Unlock Windows.



Tip You can choose the Default Window Layout option even if you lock the window position; the windows remain locked.


Choosing the Default Window Layout

Cisco CallManager Attendant Console allows you to maximize and minimize all windows that display. When you change the window layout to the default, the Cisco CallManager Attendant Console window may appear to shrink and enclose the three windows, the menu bar, Call Control toolbar, and the status bar.


Note If you minimize a window before you choose the Default Window Layout option, the window maximizes after you make the choice.

If you make any changes to the text size and color scheme before you choose the Default Window Layout option, these changes remain after you make the choice.


To change the window layout to the default, choose Edit > Default Window Layout.

Using the Actions Menu

You perform call-control tasks through the Actions menu. For information on performing call-control tasks by using the Actions menu, see the "Handling Calls" section.


Note The display shows only enabled options that are available for use. If an option is disabled, you cannot use the option.


Using Dial Digits

When an automated voice prompt, such as Cisco IP AutoAttendant, tells you to perform a task by using the Cisco IP Phone or the attendant PC numeric keypad, you must use the Dial Digits keypad to perform the task.

Example: Using the Dial Digits Keypad

If you call another company and an automated voice prompt tells you to "press 1 to dial the extension," you perform one of the various methods to display the keypad, and then enter 1.


Tip You can click the mouse or press keys on the keyboard while using the Dial Digits keypad.


To use the Dial Digits keypad, perform the following procedure:

Procedure


Step 1 To display the Dial Digits keypad, perform one of the following tasks:

a. Choose Actions > Dial Digits.

b. Press Ctrl + S.

Step 2 Perform one of the following tasks when the dial digits keypad displays:

a. If you are sending a call to voice mail, enter the directory number of a user in your directory and then enter the appropriate alphanumeric characters or symbols in the field, depending on the requests from the automated voice prompt.

b. If you dialed an external directory number and receive an automated voice prompt, enter the appropriate alphanumeric characters or symbols in the field, depending on the requests from the automated voice prompt.

Step 3 After you complete the tasks, click Close.


Alternate Method (Shortcut)

If you prefer, you can enter dial digits without using the Dial Digits keypad. When you receive the automated voice prompt, press the appropriate keys on the PC keyboard; then, press Ctrl + S.
