Enterprise Edge 1.0 & huntgroup issue?

Enterprise Edge 1.0 & huntgroup issue?

Enterprise Edge 1.0 & huntgroup issue?

Have a customer with an old EE-1000 chassis running ver 1.0, everything has been working just fine for them... CCR tree, voicemail, etc.

They've now got the need to have multiple CSR's take calls for several of the items in the CCR tree, so I thought the best fit would be to set up huntgroups for those items.  Changes made to the CCR tree ok, and the calls go through to the huntgroup DN's just fine.

The problem occurs when the call is not answered by any member of the hunt group... instead of the call falling through to the overflow position, I simply get 4 rings and then a "the person you have called is not available" (or if I program a vmail box for the huntgroup DN it falls into voicemail) and then drops back to the CCR tree.

Huntgroup (529) is defined as broadcast mode, if busy- overflow, queue timeout 15, overflow to 221.  I have played with the queue timeout and also tried with the huntgroup in rotary and linear modes... all with the same result... 4 rings and then the not available message.

As I read the docs... in broadcast mode if nobody answers I should fall through to the overflow destination after the timeout.

This could be a bug in 1.0... or I'm missing something really obvious in the configuration.  It's one of those "I've pulled out my last remaining hair" days... any ideas/suggestions?

Hi mcisar

This is not a bug. The problem is that the voicemail acts
like any other extension on the system. That means that when it blind transfers to a hunt group it is controlled by the BCM timers just like any other extension on the system.The default is 4 rings after the 4 rings the bcm pulls the call back and sends it to the general delivery mailbox. You can increase the timer by logging on to the bcm and under the
Services------Telephony services-----General settings------Timers

Click on drop down arrow beside transfer callback timeout
Adjust ring timer

If you switch this off the Operator who blind transfers call will never have them return.

Thanks mrmarshall, I didn't even think about that recall timer.  Works like a charm now!
