Special numbers are the PCI-compliant numbers of people/organizations that are external to your contact center. Unlike static entries, these numbers are stored in the directory of the Agent Desktop application, but they are not shown to agents at all. Special numbers are activated for external IVRs when a special number matches the number dialed by an agent after any prefix-manipulation by dial-outs is done and any special prefixes (e.g., suppress ANI) are removed.
Note: In order for this section to be accessible in the Contact Center Administrator application, your service provider must allow PCI DTMF suppression in conferences for your contact center.
