Configure outbound campaign call settings, including automatic time zone mapping settings, that apply to all campaigns in your organization.
- Click Admin.
- Under Outbound, click Outbound Settings.
In the Outbound Settings section of the page, you can configure the following call settings:
|Max Calls Per Agent||Limit the maximum number of outbound campaign calls that the system can place for an agent at a time. Type a value equal to or less than the maximum of 15.|
|Max Line Utilization||
Changes the percentage of maximum number of outbound lines that the system can use. For example, to leave 40 percent of the lines available for inbound calls and use 60 percent for outbound campaign calls, set the value to 60.
This setting applies only to campaigns that specify Edge groups. It does not apply to preview campaigns.
For campaigns, the system assumes that each Edge can handle a maximum of 300 lines.
Example: a customer has two Edges assigned for a campaign, and each Edge has 300 lines. If Max Line Utilization is set at 75 percent, only 450 lines will be used out of 600 total.
|Compliance Abandon Threshold (in seconds)||Change the allowable amount of time (threshold) for an agent to answer a call transferred to a queue before the system considers the call a Compliance Abandon. Type a value in seconds. The default is two seconds. For more information, see Outbound abandoned calls.|
|Calls Subject to Compliance Abandon Rate||
Change the group of calls subject to the Compliance Abandon rate calculation. Select All Calls or Calls that reached the queue. For all calls, the calculation is abandon calls/all calls, including, for example, busy and no answer. For calls that reached the queue, the calculation is abandon calls/only the calls transferred to the queue, usually live voice calls.
Automatic time zone mapping settings
If you use automatic time zone mapping to assign time zones to records, you can use the Automatic Time Zone Mapping settings to override the default dialing window here.
Note: You can override callable times only; you cannot override callable days.
Select the countries for the contacts used in your outbound call campaign.
Note: If you do not select anything, time zone mapping uses United States zip codes and area codes by default. Match your selection to the data in your contact lists. For example, if your contact lists have only Canadian contacts, select only Canada. If your contact lists have both United States and Canadian contacts, select both. Canadian data now includes full support for postal codes and area codes, including Newfoundland. Canadian postal codes in your contact lists must be in the proper format. This is 7 digits with a space after 3 digits, for example,
|Callable window for mapped contacts||
When the system successfully maps a time zone to a record, the default dialing window is set to 8:00 AM – 9:00 PM local time.
To override this calling window, define the Earliest Callable Time and the Latest Callable Time.
|Callable window for unmapped contacts||
When the system cannot successfully map a time zone to a record (because, for example, the phone number is not a valid NANP number), the calling window defaults to a compliant dialing window of 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST.
To override this dialing window, define the Earliest Callable Time, the Latest Callable Time, and the corresponding Time Zone (the customer’s local time zone).
