    How to do Manual Dialing

    At times, the telecallers have to make outgoing calls manually.
    This can be achieved in 2 ways:

    • For 1 or 2 random outgoing calls, between their regular Preview / Auto Campaign, the user can go to top right corner of their phone screen, and select “Manual Dial”
      option. (After completion of Manual Dialing, they can go back to their regular campaign)
    • For regular outgoing manual calls, the users can request the Admin to create a Manual Campaign.

    How to register an incoming call

    While you are making outbound calls, it is quite obvious that some of your contacts may call you back.
    Below are a couple of methods to register their calls

    • In our latest app, at the incoming call, a screen will be displayed with the incoming call number. The user can fill the name of the caller, and select the disposition from the available options.
    • For the old app (Link), and for some of the mobile devices using the new app, the user can go to the top right corner and select the “incoming” option. Insert the name and number manually, followed by the disposition on the call.

    What is List ID?

    List ID is a unique value that should be uploaded while uploading any file.
    This value is not mandatory but plays a very important role in handling data. The admin can filter out a group of contacts easily by knowing this list ID.
    The ‘List ID’ can be specific to a user, upload data, or campaign, or any other important parameter that is required to filter your data.
    A filter in contact “Filter by list ID” can be used to filter the selected data from the rest of the contacts. Which can be eiter assigned to a campaign, or can be deleted.

    Agents not getting data in their campaign

    When your telecaller complaints on not receiving the data in their application, please do the following check:

    1. Check the Data
    Please go to the ‘campaign’ from the CRM, click on the name of the campaign, and see if the user has completed the data, or the data is missed from dialing. The quick check is to go to the last page of the contacts within a campaign and see if the contact at this page is an attempt to dialed. If yes, then, the data is completed. If not, then the data is skipped.

    2. Upload the Data
    By upload the new data, and assigning to the same campaign, you can enable the dialing again. Ask the user to Logout, and Login to start receiving the data again to the Android application.

    3. Recycle the Data
    If the data is missed, Recycle the data based on “No Disposition” option.
    You can also recycle based on other options available.
