  • 1.  Front End Messages (FEM) - to announce IT outages

    Posted 01-24-2022 19:35
    Sorry new here.  This is a function that we had in our 10 year old system and I am being told it can't be done.

    I manage an IT Service Desk.  I would like functionality that allows the Supervisor of the service desk to put a front end message (FEM) - a message that plays before anyone gets to the queue to let people know that we have a major incident that is affecting a particular service and we know about it.  That way people can hang up if they are reporting that problem or send them to a portal where they can create a "me too" incident ticket.

    Is there a way to allow this?  Obviously we don't want them to be able to change any other call flow.  Just add a message, and be able to remove it when the incident is fixed.

    I couldn't find anything in the documentation, but I think my terminology is old:)

    Hi Shane

    Not natively, but what most people do is add a find user prompt function near the start of your flow, followed by playing that prompt out.  That way your business just needs to re-record that prompt as required through the browser, upload a new file recorded externally.

    Another way of doing it is have a data table lookup near the start of your flow, and have a row in your data table that has a text field where someone can type out the message to be played.  You could also have a swith/boolean option there to turn it on/off and check that in your flow too.  Then have that read out using TTS in your flow.
