Play Estimated Wait Time action
Add the Play Estimated Wait Time action to an in-queue flow’s task sequence to make educated estimates on wait time based on historical data, and play the wait time back to the caller. This action is only available for in-queue flows.
- If a computed duration in the range is less than 1 minute, Architect treats the duration as 1 minute.
Example: A duration of -5 minutes with a 2 minute padding returns a calculated range of -7 to -3 minutes. Architect treats both negative numbers as 1.
- If you use the ToAudioTimeRange expression and both the lower and upper bound values are the same, the expression reads only the value.
Example: ToAudioRange(1,1,Format.TimePart.minutes) is read as 1 minute, not 1 to 1 minutes.
|Name||Optionally type a distinct name for the action. The label you enter here becomes the action’s name displayed in the task sequence.|
|Estimated Wait Time (EWT)||
The duration value used for the current call’s estimated wait time. By default, this is the Call.EstimatedWaitTime variable. This variable is supplied by the server so it does not need to be modified. However, you can set it to another variable, expression, or literal value if you want to present your own.
Note: If the specified duration is a NOT_SET value, the action will not play audio because no value is set
|Round Up Interval||
This option appears if you select Approximate or Less Than playback modes. Select the amount of time in which to calculate estimated wait time and return approximate or less than calculations. Architect rounds up the estimated wait time to the selected threshold in even minutes.
This option appears if you select the Padded playback mode. Select the amount of time in which to return the estimated wait time range. Architect rounds up to even minutes. For example, 1 minute 30 seconds rounds up to 2 minutes and 2 minutes 1 second rounds up to 3 minutes. The padding interval subtracts and adds to the estimated wait time.
|Specific Round Up Intervals||If specified, Architect will round up the EWT to the smallest interval below that is greater than the EWT. Otherwise, Architect will use the Round Up Interval above.|
|Add Specific Round Up Interval||
This option appears if you select Approximate or Less Than playback modes. Optionally select the amount of time in hours, numbers, and minutes in which Architect rounds up the estimated wait time to the smallest interval that is greater than the actual estimated wait time. Otherwise, Architect uses the previously selected Round Up Interval.
