This document describes how to configure an auto answer with Finesse.
There are no specific requirements for this document.
This document is not restricted to specific software and hardware versions.
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
Some contact centers that have upgraded to Unified Contact Center Express (UCCX) 10 or 11 and are using Finesse, have previously configured Cisco Agent Desktop (CAD) to auto answer incoming calls. This is configured through CAD workflows in the previous release where there is a need to replicate the same with Finesse. Finesse gives more control to the admin to auto answer the calls as compared to Cisco Unified Communications Manager's (CUCM's) auto answer configuration.
Navigate to Finesse Administration and click on the Workflows link to view the Manage Workflows page.
Create a new Action as shown in the image,
The dialogID and extension variables are used to populate the action with the information that Finesse needs to automate the answering of the call on the agent's extension.
Create a new Workflow as follows, which will be executed when a call arrives. The Answer Action configured above must be assigned to this worfklow as shown in the image.
Finally, assign this workflow to the desired Teams via Finesse Admin's Team Resources page.
If you would like auto answer to apply to only certain agents within a team, add conditions to the workflow to match particular agents.The same can be done to have only certain call flows auto answered, using any of the call information presented to Finesse.
