Question how to answer incoming calls with a recorded message


i have a customer who wants to answer incoming calls with a reorded message like "thank you for calling.. next available operater will answer yor call"

I have a UC500 with CME 8.1 und CUE 8.0.3. Their is a IVR modul on CUE, but is it possible to use it without options, so anyone in company can pickup the incoming call? or a call-parking?

I have no good idea..

the BACD seems to be the right tool for this job, but what i need is a simpler way.

I mean the first thing, which is what i need, is a welcom greeting, but not all this options, like press1 for our sales department and so on.

The scenario would be as follows:

two or three calls come in, but they should not hear a long ringing, so they are in the mude to end the call. they should here a greeting, which signals that they will get soon a call agent. If their are more incoming calls they should be in a queue and here the welcom greeting again.

I know this is more like a callcenter scenario, but is their a way to configure something like this?


You can try the BACD Drop Thru option.

Check the config guide in the previous post.



Can UC500/CME be configured to play a default prompt when dialing an extension?

the B-ACD helped me great.. thank you two

It has a call queue and the necessary audio prompts. In my configuration i did not use the drop-through option, but this will be the next step.

Beside i have to get an exit option for the queue, because it is not ending, it is repeating and repeating.. Ok i have to say that the voicemail pilot number is a fake number, maybe it is repeating the queue, because it can not handover the call to the voice-mail?

ok i fixed it, i was not able to access the voicemail, so i added one voicemailbox on my CUE and configured voice service voip.

But if no one is on the phones, i did not find a option to transfer it directly to my configured voicemailbox?!

i hoped when i put on all phones DND it would do it, but this was not the solution...

-- edit --

okay, i forgot to configure this:


UC520(config-telephony)#hunt-group ?
  logout  Define hunt group logout option
  report  Define hunt group report parameter

UC520(config-telephony)#hunt-group logout ?
  DND   logout using DND softkey
  HLog  logout using HLog softkey

UC520(config-telephony)#hunt-group logout DND

-- edit --

and it will not transfer to voicemailbox, if this is not configured:

voice service voip
allow-connections h323 to h323
allow-connections h323 to sip
