How do I use the Loop feature in the VCC Forward to Queue object to repeat a message or music file?

Objective

To create a repeating message loop in the IVR Script (Queue) until an agent becomes available.

Applies To

Virtual Contact Center

Procedure

Follow the steps below to create a repeating loop for your message or music file until an agent becomes available in your queue or until the queue timeout seconds have been met in your Forward to Queue settings. You may also set the Queue Timeout seconds in the Forward to Queue object settings to the max amount of 20000 seconds to avoid the caller being forwarded out to the Queue Timeout action.

 

1) In your script, navigate to the Forward to Queue object that you would like to create a loop for.

2) Select In Queue and select Add Loop

5) Select Time Interval and click Edit

6) Set the Minimum duration time to the amount of seconds your message is. If your minimum duration time is longer than your message or music file, the IVR script will default to your Queue's on hold music.
