Guidelines for RONA
For voice calls, follow these guidelines to obtain accurate and useful data when using Redirection on No Answer (RONA) to respond to unanswered calls:
Within the routing script, plan to enable the Target Requery option in the routing script. Target Requery is available from the Queue, Queue to Agent, Label, Select, and RouteSelect nodes.
Decide and configure how long a call is to ring before being redirected to a new agent or skill group.
When deciding how long a call is to ring, consider how RONA calls affect the Service Level. If you want RONA calls to adversely affect the Service Level, the amount of time the call is allowed to ring before being redirected must be above the Service Level threshold time.
Configure the number to dial to redirect calls that agents do not answer within the ring no answer time. You configure the ring no answer dialed number in the Agent Desk Settings tool in Configuration Manager.
Plan to create a separate call type for RONA situations and to associate this call type with the ring no answer dialed number.
Using a separate call type enables you to redirect calls that are not answered to a script that queues the calls at a higher priority. It also enables you to report on activity for the RONA call type. Viewing data for this call type helps you gain insight into the number of calls that redirect on no answer. Viewing data for this call type also helps you see how the calls are finally handled.
Plan to create a separate script that is associated with the RONA call type.
In the Redirection on No Answer Script, queue the calls at a higher priority. The call variables set in the first script are carried over into the second script and you can use these variables if you choose.
Change the call type in the script after the requery and create a path for calls that are required within the script.
For nonvoice tasks routed to Unified CCE by third-party multichannel applications that use the Task Routing APIs, follow these guidelines when using Redirection on No Answer (RONA) to respond to unanswered tasks:
Within the routing script, plan to use the ServiceRequested call variable to identify RONA tasks. This call variable is set to 3 when Task Routing tasks RONA. You can raise the priority of tasks that RONA so that they go to the front of the queue.

Configure the Start Timeout setting for the MRD to specify how long a task is to wait on an agent's desktop before being redirected to a new agent or skill group. This setting is in the Unified CCE Administration Media Routing Domain tool.
Consider how RONA calls affect the Service Level. If you want RONA calls to adversely affect the Service Level, the amount of time the call is allowed to ring before being redirected must be above the Service Level threshold time.
