This manual will help you become familiar with the commands and keystrokes needed to operate the system.

The manual is broken down into structured sections for ease of use and is presented in a PDF format for ease of navigation. Copyright 2006 OnviSource OnviCall Operator User s Guide Version Page 1

14 Keyboard Shortcuts Keyboard Shortcuts OnviCall is equipped with various types of keyboard shortcuts to help you work more efficiently. You are encouraged to become familiar with these to enhance the OnviCall experience. OnviCall s three areas of keyboard shortcuts include: Function Keys Navigation Keys Menu Commands Copyright 2006 OnviSource OnviCall Operator User s Guide Version Page 7

15 Function Keys Function keys are made up of the top row on your keyboard, starting with the Esc key through the F12 key. They also include the Tab, Arrows, Alt, Ctrl, Shift, Page Up, Page Down, Insert, Home, End and the Enter keys. OnviCall will keep one keyboard file per group for each assigned operator. If no group keyboards have been created then the combination keys and function keys will operate in default mode as outlined below. Holding down any shortcut key causes the system to repeatedly apply the command. It is good practice to press the function or command key only once. F1 - Auto Answer Pressing the F1 key will connect you to the highest priority call in the incoming Call Display Window. If more than one call exists with the same priority, then you will connect to the oldest call. Exception: If your manager programs a particular account number as a PRIORITY ANSWER account, then it will always connect to it as a best call to answer first. You can press F1 while connected to a call to place your current call on hold (F5 General Hold), then auto answer the next incoming call. F2 - Flash Hook Flash hook allows the caller to be put on hold while OnviCall searches and finds an outside dial tone from your telephone company to place an outgoing call in order to transfer them to a 3 rd party. Note: Flash Hook is only functional on T1 circuits not PRI s. F3 - Hang Up Pressing the F3 key disconnects the active call and releases the line. F4 - Operator List Pressing F4 gives a list of operators by their initials, rotation status (In, Out, Hot, Standby) and station IP Address on the local network. Operator List is also used when initiating a Private Operator Chat with another operator. For instructions on how to use Operator Chat, please refer to the Operator Chat section of this manual. F5 - Hold Pressing the F5 key places the current call on regular hold. Calls on regular hold will automatically be placed in the Call Display Window in the first available line before being bounced to another operator in a Hold status (this time is based on the management time setting). If you are in the message-taking mode, the message will be suspended making it an incomplete message, allowing you to return to the message later to complete it. Copyright 2006 OnviSource OnviCall Operator User s Guide Version Page 8

16 F6 - Priority Hold Pressing the F6 key places the current call on Priority Hold in the first available line in the Call Display window. Priority Hold keeps the call out of rotation for reassignment to another operator. The Priority Hold Indicator will highlight the call line in the Call Display. Priority Hold is also used when Patching or Transferring a call. P Patching a Call 1. Place the current call on Priority Hold (F6). 2. Dial the third party number. 3. Once connected with the third party, Press P on your keyboard. 4. Enter the line # of the call on priority hold (all three lines are now connected). 5. Press F6 to disconnect yourself from the call (the call will not end until the other parties disconnect). T Transferring a Call 1. Place the current call on Priority Hold (F6). 2. Press T on your keyboard. 3. At the command prompt at the bottom of the screen enter the line # of the call on priority hold. 4. You will be presented with a list of all available operators. Select an operator by using your arrow keys to scroll up and down through the list and press Enter on their initials or double left click to transfer the call. F7 - Expand Press F7 to expand the contact or active window. The expandable screen areas are: the Call Display Window, Client Information Window, Message Window, If Window and Status Window. The format sizes are normal, half-page, and full-page. To Expand Call Display Window Press F7 once to change the display from the default 4 incoming lines to all 9 incoming lines; press F7 again to return to default. To Expand Client Update, Status Update, If Update and Message Update Windows While in Update mode of the windows listed above, press the F7 once to expand the screen to half size, twice to expand the window to full size and three times to return to normal mode.

Use the arrow keys or your mouse to highlight the phrase you want to use, press enter on the keyboard or double left click with your mouse to place it into the program window you are working in. 3. You can also type the Key that corresponds with the phrase. For example after pressing F8 then press G, Gone for the day will be entered as text in the opened field. F9 - Refresh Pressing the F9 key will reload the program screen. It refreshes data for the current account page. F10 - Save Saves your current changes while in edit mode. All editable screens must be saved using F10 or you will lose all your information. F11 - Voice Recorder Voice recorder allows you to patch or immediately record an incoming caller or relay a message to a Voic system that will allow them to leave a message for the client. 1.

Your page layout will now be reflected. Global Vs. Local As previously mentioned, OnviCall provides functions to set up Client Control options on two different levels. Some settings make information available within the account (local); other functions make data available with the system (global). For instance, a phone number listed within an account directory can be checked for inclusion in OnviCall s Global Directory. If not marked as global, the listing will only be found and viewed from within the account s individual directory thus making it local to the account. The term local applies to settings that pertain only to a certain page within the account as well. Any given account page can possess unique settings related to an answer phrase, page layout, message format, directory, auto dispatch, events, and dispatch schedules. These settings remain local to the page, not global to the account when we use the functions of page Local. Copyright 2006 OnviSource OnviCall Operator User s Guide Version Page 21
