Administrator’s guide to the Call-Back feature for your contact center.

The Call-Back feature allows a caller on hold in a call queue to choose to be called back by an agent from the contact center instead of staying on the line.

1 Call-Back flow

When the number is dialled, the call queue is reached and the caller is put on hold, a message announcing the Call-Back option will play. For more information on how to record this message, see point 2 of this guide.

Call-Back Option

You can configure the queue to announce the position of the caller in the waiting queue. To do so, connect to Studio, and edit the Caller Options of the queue, under Tools > Contact Center > Call Queues (see point 2 below for more details on how to edit a call queue).

Position for Call-Back

You can also announce the estimated hold time of the waiting queue:

Hold time for Call-Back

When the Call-Back option is chosen, the position of the caller in the waiting queue is saved. An automatic message will ask the caller at which phone number he wishes to be called back.

Confirm Call-Back number

To be called back at the same number

If the caller wishes to be called back at the same number used to place the call, he is invited to press 1.

Call-Back Number

To be called back at another number

To be called back at a different number than the one used to place the call, the caller must press 2.

The caller will then be invited to enter the 10-digit phone number at which he wishes to be called back, starting with the area code.

Dial Call-Back number

The caller can now hang up, and he will keep his same position in the waiting queue.

Hang up and wait for Call-Back

Call-Back

When the caller reaches the first position in the waiting queue, the first available agent will receive an audio prompt before being put in contact with the caller.

The agent is now in contact with the caller, and can process his request.

When there is no answer

If the caller is unable to answer the call-back from the agent, normal queue rules apply. By default, the agent can leave a voicemail or hang up. The caller’s position in the waiting queue is now lost.

2 Activating the Call-Back feature

Recording the announcement message

For an automated message to announce the Call-Back option in a call queue, you must first record it, identifying which key leads to this option. For example, this recording might say “Tired of waiting? Press 3 for an agent to call you back instead of staying on hold.

Then, send this recording to our customer service at support@ubity.com for one of our agents to configure this announcement message in the call queue.
