This section provides descriptions of the predefined dispositions that are created by default whenever you define a new service. For general information about dispositions, their purpose, and configuration, see section Dispositions Tab of this guide.
Many dispositions defined apply to outbound campaigns only, and some of those are used for preview records only.
All dispositions in the Connection Problem folder are by default visible to agents. This is essential for preview campaigns where call progress is monitored by agents. If you are running a predictive or progressive campaign where the call progress analysis is performed by the system, you may consider hiding some of these dispositions. If you do so, it is recommended that you leave dispositions Answering machine and Silence visible to the agents.
Note: The dispositions that are hidden from the agents are shown in italic, both in the application and in the following list.
The meaning of each predefined description is given as follows.
Add to DNC
The remote party requested that no further calls be made to his numbers.
The customer email was replied to and no follow-up is expected or necessary. This disposition closes the email case.
The agent reviewed the calling record and marked it as unusable (e.g., due to insufficient or corrupted data).
Message not sent
The outbound message failed to send. Note that the optional “Provider Code” column in campaign results may display error codes, if provided by the SMS carrier. For more information, see Administration Tutorials, section Outbound Messaging Campaign Configuration.
The outbound message was successfully sent.
The business purpose of the call/chat was not fulfilled, but no follow up is required or expected by the customer.
The customer email confirmed successful resolution of the original matter (e.g., a thank you note) and was closed without reply. This disposition closes the email case.
The business purpose of the call/chat was fulfilled.
Record matches DNC
The attempted record matches an entry in one the associated record-based DNC lists (i.e. Do Not Call lists).
The content of the customer email had no connection to any services provided by the contact center. This disposition closes the email case.
Dropped while talking
The call was dropped (accidentally disconnected) while the conversation was in progress. This disposition can also be used for chats that were ended due to customer inactivity.
Need more information
The customer email was replied to and some follow-up is expected. The email case stays open.
Number matches DNC
The attempted number matches a number in one of the associated number-based DNC lists.
The person for whom the call was intended cannot be reached at this number.
The person who answered the call was not the person for whom the call was intended (but the latter may be reached at the same number later).
Connection problem folder
The connected call attempt returned speech that was not live voice or an answering machine greeting. For example, this announcement can be an interactive voice response (IVR) announcement indicating that a company office was closed or an IVR menu asking to press a digit for the desired department.
The call was answered by an answering machine.
The called number was busy.
The call attempt returned the fast busy signal (reorder tone) indicating that the call cannot be established due to network congestion. Note that sometimes network operators also use Fast Busy to indicate invalid and/or disconnected numbers.
Fax or modem
The called line is connected to a fax or modem.
The call attempt returned a tone indicating that the dialed number was invalid.
The call attempt returned speech before connecting the call, such as a network message indicating, for example, that the call could not be established at this time.
The called party did not answer within the No Answer timeout.
Other connection issue
This is the generic disposition reserved for any possible connection problems other than the ones specified above.
The call was established but no sound from the remote party could be detected for more than 5 seconds.
The call ended because of an Agent Desktop application failure.
The answered call was dropped before call progress analysis could be finished.
Call or call attempt terminated externally with an unknown error code.
This disposition is reserved for future use.
Disposition not found
Scenario attempted to set the interaction disposition to a value that could not be recognized.
Finalized by dial rule
Processing of this record was finalized by a dial rule.
The call was dropped after being answered by the called party because it could not be connected to an agent in a timely manner.
No Assigned Agent - Before Answer
This disposition occurs prior to the outbound call being answered when the dialer sees that the assigned agent is unavailable.
The agent who handled this interaction did not select any disposition for it.
No numbers left to call
The maximum number of calling attempts has been reached for all numbers of this calling record and there are no more attempts for this record to be made. Note that this disposition is used only when the record contains multiple phone numbers and they are tried during the campaign. When list records contain only one phone number (or only one is used during the given campaign), the final disposition of the record that reached maximum attempts corresponds to the disposition of the last call attempt.
The call could not be made because the public telephone network was not available.
The calling record has expired. See section Lists for more information about the uses of record expiration mechanism and the related settings.
The agent accepted the preview record and then skipped it (i.e., discarded the record without dialing). There is no special handling of the this disposition. It simply notifies Dialer and waits for the Dialer decision.
The call ended because of a system failure.
