Skype for Business and Lync 2013 User Interface

Attendant Pro has a Skype for Business

Lync 2013 UI

To enable the Skype for Business UI it is as simple as clicking “Enable Skype for Business User Interface” and you can even do it while Attendant Pro is running.

Delegate and Anonymous RGS “Call As” feature

We have added the ability to “Call As” a user that has added you as a delegate or an anonymous response group. Not only that, but we have made the user interface less clicks and simpler.

Changing who the user is calling as:

image

The user interface is both elegantly simple and makes it possible to make a “call as”  with a single click (without multi-level menus drop-down menus!). This also brings the possibility of “Calling As” another user for a period of time as efficiently as possible. If the operator user generally tends to only make one “Call As” another user, we have a setting to switch back to operator user after one call.

Park for Group

We have added “Park for Group” which brings the ability to to Park a call to a Contact Group by merely double clicking on a Contact Group. Just right-click on the “Call Park” button and select “Park for Group”

image

Now a notice will be sent to all the users in this Skype for Business contact group and they can pickup the call with (of course) 1-click.

image

“Park for User” works just like Park for Group, but you select a contact.

This feature, just like all features in Attendant Pro, requires NO additional server components. It works with Lync 2013 and Skype for Business.

Transfer calls from Hold

We have now added the ability to transfer or park calls from hold. Just click on the “. . .” (more options) button while the call is on hold.

Merge Held calls to Current Call

This release also brings “Merge to Current Call” and “Transfer to Current”.
