Campaign Start and Stop

Campaigns can be started and stopped either automatically based on a predefined schedule, or manually. For information about automatic campaign start/stop, see the description of the outbound campaign settings in the Contact Center Administrator Guide.

The current statuses of your campaigns are displayed in column Running of the general campaign metrics view. For a campaign selected in this view, the status is also indicated by the name of the toggle button below the metrics table. The button will be named Start for an idle campaign, or Stop for a running one.


To start a campaign manually:

  1. Select this campaign in the general metrics view.
  2. Make sure it is currently idle, and click the Start button. Campaign-Metrics-Run-Campaign-50.jpg

The selected campaign will start immediately, provided that there are agents available to handle calls of this campaign. Note that the actual call attempts to phones of specific types are made according to the schedules specified in the campaign calling hours.


To stop a running campaign manually:

  1. Select this campaign in the general metrics view.
  2. Make sure it is currently running, and click the Stop button. Campaign-Metrics-Stop-50.PNG

The system will stop making new call attempts for any records of this campaign immediately. All call attempts that may have been in progress will be finished normally.

Note that the use of the manual campaign start/stop controls does not cancel automatic start/stop configuration. For example, consider a campaign configured to start automatically at 2 p.m. and stop at 6 p.m. If this campaign was started manually at 1:30 p.m., it will still be stopped automatically at 6 p.m. unless it is stopped manually before.
