Just playing around a little with Attendant Console in my lab. I've read the docs but just wanted to clarify how the CSS works on calls.
The call comes in from PSTN and uses Gateway CSS to be able to reach Attendant Console route point which sends it to the call queue. Operator answers the call, and can either blind transfer or consult transfer. Which CSS does the call use at this point? If it is a consult transfer, I guess this uses the CSS of the operator line, which would probably be okay if the person at the destination answers and then the operator completes the transfer, but what if:
Sorry for the silly questions, just need to be clear in my own head
The operator's phone CSS will be used on all transfers from the operator. CTI Port CSS would only be used for redirects and delivery of calls to the operator's phone.
Can you tell me what is meant by redirect? To clarify, if for example, operator has international CSS and CTI port has only internal, CTI port can route calls to operator, operator can transfer out to international number for both blind and consult regardless of CSS on CTI? In my guess I guessed the operator CSS is always used but when testing, I can see sometimes with blind transfer "invalid destination" for calls that work okay on consult transfer, so thought they maybe use a different CSS. Maybe a bug, I guess.
I am actually experiencing something similar. We have a large multi-site deployment where we are using site codes, but then each site has its own CSS containing a partition with a translation rule for that particular site, so that the users don't need to dial the site code when dialling within their own site. The problem we are finding with operators is that they if they are dialling a number eg 1000, then it automatically prefixes, eg 1231000, but if they do a double tap (blind transfer), they are getting invalid destination.
