I have a request from management to configure our uc540 to allow users to break out of a hold queue. This means that that they could press a button and go an auto attendand for example. How would I best do this?
As Marcus said this is not quite possible especially if you want to remain within CCA compliance and potentially SBS compliance.
However there is a potential alternative if I may propose it.
The Scenario I have had to work with incorporated a person reaching a point within the BACD and at that time they are directed to an AA, within that AA you can offer up options to re-enter the Queue or to leave a message or to be transferred to reception.
It is not the prefect solution but a potential one to work
I like it, just have to play with the timer values so it would seem seamless to the caller
Might have to work up a TEL for it, sounds like fun
The problem with that solution, is that you reset the caller's queue position when they hit the Auto Attendant again. If the system is not queueing too many callers at a time it might be ok, but you want to avoid a caller being stuck in queue while new calls get answered.
Your point is taken, but if you read it carefully, everyone within that Queue at some point get reset unless they are super fortunate to get an available agent during the cycle...
Again I point out it is a workaround and not a perfect solution, if nothing else is available it could get you out of trouble I guess
