Vector Programming

Using Variables in a vector (on call rotation) by RTMCKEE
Posted: 15 Apr 05

Do you alternate weekly on call?  

We do here between 3 people.  We use our own cell phones for on call and have an internal VDN that routes calls to our phone.  This has been working pretty well, but we have to manually go in and change the vector every week.  In my never ending quest to use variables in a vector, I came up with an IVR like vector that tells you who is currently on call, and gives you the option to change the on call person.  This enables other people without phone system access to change the on call rotation (i.e. data network team)

This takes only one vdn, one vector, and one variable in addition to the existing vdn and vector to route the internal VDN to the on call person.

1st the on-call selector vector:


    Number: 123              Name: IT ONCALL
Multimedia? n      Attendant Vectoring? n    Meet-me Conf? n           Lock? n
     Basic? y   EAS? y   G3V4 Enhanced? y   ANI/II-Digits? y   ASAI Routing? y
 Prompting? y   LAI? y  G3V4 Adv Route? y   CINFO? y   BSR? y   Holidays? y
 Variables? y

17 stop
18 collect      1    digits after announcement 3739     for I (this is where you set the variable value.  The announcement says: for Tom press 1, Mike press 2, Bob press 3)
19 disconnect   after announcement 3738(thank you for using the on call selector program, Good bye)
