A standard process (campaign) in Xtend Call Center can have Welcome prompt, Menu/Option prompt, Thank you prompt, Consent prompt and Refusal prompt. In case if the call flow is intricate with submenu prompts, then the customised processes (campaigns) can be created through Xtend Call Center.
7. How can I upload prompts to be played to the customer through a process (campaign)?
To upload the prompts to be played to the customer through a process, open the web interface of Xtend Call Center. Go to Process → Add Data and select a process from the drop-down list. Then, click Upload Waves. Browse and select the prompts and then click Upload Files.
8. How can I choose the number of calls that will be made by a process (campaign) simultaneously at any point of time?
To choose the number of calls made by a process at any instant, open the web interface of Xtend Call Center. Go to Process → Configuration and click Countwise. Select the process and enter the maximum channel count which indicates the maximum number of calls that can be taken simultaneously at any point of time. Then, click Configure.
9. Why am I unable to load the Media Player while trying to listen to recorded calls in the Dialled Logs?
For the Media Player to be loaded, certain ActiveX controls need to be downloaded and run on your Internet Explorer browser. Check if the Xtend Call Center web URL has been added as a trusted site in your browser security settings and that the security level for this zone is customised to download and run ActiveX controls.
10. How can I change the location where the voice logging waves are stored?
To change the location of the logged wave files, go to Configuration → Wave Paths and click the link Add New Path. Enter the new location on the system (e.g.: D:\Waves) where you want to store the wave files and click Add Path. Then follow the steps in FAQ 5 to "view and edit" the process.

12. While uploading a file with valid telephone numbers for outbound dial, why does the message "No valid data is present" appear?
This error commonly appears while trying to upload phone numbers from an Excel file. To avoid that, enter the phone numbers in a uniformly formatted manner with no spaces in between the digits (e.g. 0484 3291008 should be 04843291008 or 93120 96080 should be 9312096080). Also check that there are no blank rows in between the numbers. Also note that the prefix "0" is lost in Excel while uploading if the telephone numbers have been formatted as "numbers". It is better to format the cell property as Text to preserve the prefix. This factor becomes critical in case of STD/ISD numbers.
13. What if I am not able to login to the Remote Client (agent popup) application?
This may happen when the Xtend Web Server is not running on the Xtend Call Center installed system. To run the web server, go to Start → All Programs → Xtend Call Center 3.0 → Xtend Web Server (click and restart). Also, check if the INI file named xvlogclient present in the Logger Client has the correct entries for "AllowFromIP" and "RemotePort".
14. Why cannot I create and configure a process for agent transfer?
This may happen when no agents are present. For a process to be configured with agent transfer, first create the agents by clicking on Administration → User Accounts. Then, configure a process and proceed further.
15. What type of reports does Xtend Call Center have?
Xtend Call Center includes reports on Summary Logs, Incoming Statistics, Abandoned Statistics, Work Statistics, Productivity Reports, Occupancy Reports, etc. The agent-specific reports available in Agent Logs include Agent Call Logs, Summary Logs, Agent Productivity Logs etc.
