On enter action buttons

On enter window

When your availability state changes, ucplus Client for PC can perform a series of actions that are defined by you here in this section. Each state's actions can be defined separately when the given state becomes active and when it becomes inactive ("on enter" and "on exit"). To define a state's "on enter" actions, you need to click the appropriate button in the "On enter" column. On the screen that appears you will then be able to configure the required actions for that state.

Click the "Add" button to add a new action. Each action has its own set of parameters and the actions that can be included are:

  • Forward: Forward calls to a specified number/extension.
    Device and destination are the parameters.
  • Delayed forward: Placeholder
    Device and destination are the parameters.
  • Do Not Disturb: Enable the do not disturb feature.
    Device and state (on or off) are the parameters.
  • Ringer volume: Adjust the ringer volume of a device.
    Device and volume (%) are the parameters.
  • Preferred device: Select a device as your preferred device.
    Device is the only parameter.
  • Feature code: Enable a telephony system feature through the use of a code.
    Device and feature are the parameters.
  • Absence text: Change your absence message to one more appropriate for the status.
    Text is the only parameter.
  • Send message: Send an instant message to another user.
    Destination and text are the parameters.

On exit action buttons

The actions and associated parameters for when an availability state becomes inactive are the same as those for when a state becomes active. The only difference is that the actions you define to take place "on exit" take place when the selected state becomes inactive. To define a state's "on exit" actions, you need to click the appropriate button in the "On exit" column. From then on the process is the same as when adding "on enter" actions.
