The Settings tab allows you to verify or adjust a number of configurable settings.

The Settings tab contains the following fields.

SectionFieldDescription
General Settings


Contact TimingDefault campaign dialing restriction, also known as the dialing regime.
Dialing Sort

The method of deciding the sequence in which the numbers in a campaign are contacted.

This field contains the following options.

OptionDescription

Consecutive

Uses the order in which the contact records in a campaign are loaded.
Contact name

Orders the numbers by time zones, followed by the first name of the customer, and then dials numbers in alphabetical order (that is, from A to Z).

This option is not available if the service type is 10DMT or HCI.

Default

Orders the numbers by attempts (lowest first), followed by the start time of the area code (that is, Eastern Time, followed by Central Time, Mountain Time, Pacific Time, and so on), and then the order in which the contact records were loaded.
Inverted consecutiveUses the reverse of the order in which the contact records in a campaign are loaded (that is, from the last record to the first record).

Midpoint consecutive

Starts dialing from the midpoint of the list in the campaign file toward the bottom of the list, followed by the top of the list until the midpoint.

Example

If a campaign file contains 10 records, dialing begins from the sixth record through the tenth record, followed by the first record through the fifth record, where the dialing ends.

Contact name - no area codeUses the Contact name sequence, except that the time zone sorting is ignored.
Campaign round robin

Sorts the inventory by a contact record's relative position in a campaign, followed by the campaign ID.

This sequence proportionately uses the contact records across all active campaigns (that is, campaigns that are playing). Within each campaign, the sequence of the record is maintained based on the order in which the record appeared in the original input file.
