IT Help Desk Scenario

IT Help Desk Scenario

IT Help Desk Scenario

HI gurus,
Hope you can help me out on this one.

Customer has an IT Help Desk Hunt Group. They want all help desk calls to come through that Hunt Group and do not want their employees to be able to call the individual members of the IT staff directly.

That's pretty straightforward - just set CfdAll for Internal Calls only with a target of the IT Help Desk hunt group.

The tricky part is that they still want the IT staff to be able to call each other directly, along with the IT manager and a few other select VIPs.

Any guidance on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated!

Never tried DND exceptions for Hunt Groups...but you could build an Exception list, and have the stations stay in DND..

Give them an extra digit in their extension and remove them from the directory.

RE: IT Help Desk Scenario

Per documentation, "Calls to a hunt group of which the user is a member do not use the Do Not Disturb
Exceptions list."

budbyrd - thought about the extra digit approach and using short codes to route calls to the first four digits of their extensions to the IT Help Desk hunt group. Unfortunately, I can't hide them from the directory due to Avaya Call Reporting. The IT Manager wants reports on how many calls the IT Help Desk is handling.

Further complicating matters is that they are now heavy Avaya Workplace users. So I think even with the extra digit and short codes, if someone clicks on an individual member of the IT Help Desk from the Workplace client and clicks Call, digits are sent enbloc and the short codes are bypassed.
