The Graphical Script Editor Blocks Optional Blocks-Actions Hold
This block is used to pick up a call and to put it on hold, i.e. the caller will hear the music on hold defined in this block. The music on hold is repeated until the call is activated again.
In contrast to the block “Play announcement”, the script will continue to be run while the call is on hold.
The block “Activate” is used to re-activate the call and can then continue to be handled as usual. The blocks “Connect to”, “Loop” and “FollowMe”, as well as “Play announcement” and “Choose Announcement” will also activate the call. Then the announcement of the activated block will be played if one exists.
Please note that you can only put a call on “Hold” if the call is active. A successfully forwarded call can no longer be put on “Hold”.
A call is put on hold. In this time, access to the database can take place and the dataset corresponding to the caller will be displayed to a co-worker. Then the caller will be connected to the co-worker, for example with the block “Connect to”.
The action is terminated if the call is on hold or is disconnected.
Under "Properties", all three tabs "General", "Parameters" and "Connections" tabs are available for this block.
This is how you define the parameters for “Hold”
