CHAPTER 1
Installation
About AltiAgent
AltiAgent is a Windows desktop application designed to improve the
performance of workgroup and call center agents in a MAX
Communication Server ACC/ACM (MAXCS) environment.
AltiAgent allows workgroup agents to manage workgroup calls from their
computers. It allows direct access to call handling and other functions,
including the following:
• Viewing caller data (for example, IP address, account number, credit
card number, name, and so on) sent with an incoming call.
• Pushing or sending a URL or web page to a web-based call.
• Viewing and printing workgroup call data.
With AltiAgent, you can monitor workgroup-related statistics, workgroup
call pickup, and member login/logout. In addition, AltiAgent integrates
with Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, ACT!, and GoldMine® for
caller screen pops and dialing out from these applications.
Call information can be stored to an internal or external CDR database for
future review and analysis.
New in Release 6.0
• E.164 support for call history and return calls
• E.164 number support when dialing from Outlook
Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express Support
AltiAgent 6.0 supports Microsoft Outlook 2003 and 2007, and Outlook
Express 5.0, allowing you to obtain phone numbers to dial from a Microsoft
Outlook Contact list. AltiAgent also lets you see the incoming calls that
have a matching record in the Contact list.
You must set up the Outlook Contacts list prior to using this feature.
A Country Code field can be configured (in the Configuration window,
General Info tab) by the local user to help convert standard international
phone numbers in Outlook to correct digit strings for MAXCS.
AltiAgent Manual

ACT!/GoldMine® Support
AltiAgent 6.0 supports ACT! 2005, 2006, and 2007 and GoldMine® 6.0,
6.5, and 6.7 contact management software, allowing you to obtain phone
numbers to dial from the ACT! or GoldMine® contact database list.
AltiAgent also lets you see the matching record from the contact database
list of the incoming calls.
Licensing
The following AltiGen licenses are required:
• AltiAgent requires an AltiAgent seat license for each user.
• The IPTalk feature requires an IPTalk license for each user.
• ACT! and GoldMine integration require an Integration Connector
license for each user.
A system administrator can verify the licenses in MaxAdministrator by
selecting License > Client License Management from the main menu.

3.
Open the AltiAgent folder, and run the Setup program in that folder,
following the step-by-step installation instructions as they appear on
the screen.
Alternatively, if your system administrator has loaded AltiAgent on a
shared network server, you can copy the files in the AltiAgent folder to
your desktop PC, and run the AltiAgent Setup program.
Uninstalling AltiAgent
1.
From the Windows Start menu, select Control Panel > Add/Remove
Programs > AltiAgent 6.0 to uninstall AltiAgent.
2.
Click Remove, and respond to any additional prompts.
Automatic Upgrade
Each time you start up AltiAgent, a comparison is made with the version of
MAXCS ACC/ACM that is running on the server. If updates were made on
the server, and your version of AltiAgent is out-of-date, you are prompted
for upgrade permission. If you automatically upgrade, the AltiAgent
startup is terminated and a software upgrade session is started. Restart
AltiAgent to run the newer version.
Note: For remote AltiAgent users outside the firewall, TCP port 10050 is
required to be open to allow automatic upgrade. Also, automatic
upgrade over the Internet requires the sending of 15 MB files over
the WAN, so it may take some time to perform the automatic
update.

• Your extension is configured as an IP or mobile extension by your
system administrator
• You have an AltiGen-certified IP phone or are using IPTalk
Consult your system administrator or authorized AltiGen dealer for details

Extension Integrated with IPTalk check box.
4.
Click OK.
IP Extensions Using IP Talk

Connect your headset to your PC.
2.
Use the AltiAgent dialing and call accepting functions as usual to
make and receive calls.
10 AltiAgent Manual
Troubleshooting IP Connectivity
If problems occur, they may be due to a failure to connect to your ISP or
due to firewalls at your office preventing direct access to the MAXCS
server.
As a test, you can choose Run from the Windows Start menu, then enter
Ping <IP address> [ENTER]
If you do not get a response, contact your LAN administrator for support.
Also, check to verify that the necessary ports are open.
Exiting and Minimizing AltiAgent
To exit AltiAgent, click the X in the top right
corner of the screen. To minimize AltiAgent,
click the Minimize symbol . AltiAgent

select Exit.
Pop Up AltiAgent when You Get a Call
You can configure AltiAgent to pop up when you have incoming calls. Pop
ups work when AltiAgent is minimized but not when you have exited. See
“Screen Pop, Audio Beep, and Auto Close” on page 57.
Using the Windows Tray Phone Icon

Using AltiAgent
When Your Number Is Questionable
If your system's IP trunk access code is 7, when you dial "7101234567," the
number could have two meanings:
• "7" is the IP trunk access code, "101" is the IP dialing entry, and
"234567" is the target number.
• "710" is the area code, and "1234567" is the number.
In this case, an AltiAgent message box asks you: Is "710" an area code?
AltiAgent Manual
21
• If you click Yes, AltiAgent inserts the trunk access code ("9") and long
distance number ("1") automatically.
• If you click No, AltiAgent dials this number out directly, and "7" is
treated as an IP trunk access code.
If the number you dialed is shorter than 10 digits (3-digit area code + 7-digit
number), AltiAgent sees the "7" as an IP trunk number, and dials this
number out directly.
Each time you answer the question Is "710" an area code? the result is
recorded in a text file, AreaPrefix.txt, so that AltiAgent will not have
to ask you again about that number. If you want to remove the number,
open the file, delete the number, then restart AltiAgent. The typical address
for the file is: c:\program files\AltiGen\AltiAgent\AreaPrefix.txt.
Dialing Speed Dial Numbers
To dial Speed Dial numbers, click the
the Speed Dial tab:
button, and then click
This tab lists Station Speed Dial numbers that you have configured in

Type column which numbers are station numbers and which are system
numbers.
To call a speed dial number, double-click the row of the number you want
to call, or single-click the row in the Type column.

decision by clicking the OK button in a confirmation dialog box.
You can click OK before the party answers to do a blind transfer, or
you can wait for the person to answer and then confirm or cancel the
transfer.
At any time before or after the person you’re transferring to answers
the phone, you can cancel the transfer by clicking the Cancel button
or by closing the dialog box.
If the transfer is canceled, AltiAgent reconnects the call to your extension. The call is also reconnected if the third party doesn’t answer.
How to display User data on the IP phone
When a call is being transferred using AltiAgent, the person transferring
the call can type a brief note in AltiAgent, which will then be displayed on
the LCD of the person receiving the call, as well as on that person’s
AltiAgent screen. To do this, after answering a call and before transferring
it, do the following:

Centrex Transfer
If you have a Centrex line, you can use this feature to transfer an external
call to an outside number without having to tie up two trunk lines. Once the
transfer is complete, the external caller’s line connects directly to the
outside number. Since there are no longer any connections to internal users,
internal trunk lines are then dropped, freeing up system trunk line resources
for other calls.
To perform a Centrex transfer:
1.
While connected to an outside caller from a Centrex trunk, type “F*”
in the number field in AltiAgent, and then press the Enter key on the
keyboard.
2.
After you hear a dial tone, type the second party’s outside number in
the number field, and then press the Enter key on the keyboard again.
3.
Now either click the HangUp button or wait to announce the caller and
then click the HangUp button.
Conference Calls
There are two types of conference calls in AltiAgent:
• Station conferencing. In this type of conferencing, when you’re on a
call, you can dial a third party and then conference that party in to the
call. Any internal user is able to add parties to this type of conference
call.
• MeetMe conference. If your company has this feature available, you
can schedule a meeting to take place at a specified time in the future
and invite people to the meeting. Invited people call the MeetMe
conference extension number to join the meeting at the designated
meeting time. (See “MeetMe Conference” on page 29.)

AltiAgent Manual
49
Using AltiAgent
Note: If a call is coming in to a workgroup to which you are not currently
logged in, you cannot pick up the call.
• Number—the extension or phone number. Upward arrow icons
indicate outgoing calls; downward arrows indicate incoming calls.
Clicking a number in the Number column puts that number in the
dialing field and closes the History window.
• Name—Caller ID information, if available, or Unknown.
• Date/Time—the call’s date and time.
The history data is sorted by last disconnected and not in the order the
call was received. It is therefore possible to have a record with an
earlier timestamp followed by a record with a later timestamp.
Also, the timestamp for call data is based on the client system, while
the timestamp for voice mail messages is from MAXCS. Thus, the
times displayed here may not match those in the voice mail view in the
main window.
• Length—the length of time of each call.
• DNIS—DNIS digits collected, if available
• Group—Group number or name
• Note—a note attached to the call. A note can be entered during a call
(or while it is ringing) by clicking the User Memo button in the main
AltiAgent window, typing the note, and clicking OK. To enter a note
later, click the Memo button in the lower left of the History tab, type
your note, and click OK.
Use the Delete button to delete a single call history entry. Use the Delete
All button to delete the entire call history list. AltiAgent will ask you to
confirm the deletion; click Yes to delete or No to cancel.

• The Login Time is the time you logged into the workgroup.
Much of the data reported here is also reported in the Supervisor’s view of
group statistics and is further discussed in “Viewing Group Statistics” in
the AltiSupervisor Manual.
These statistics are cleared if the system is reset.
Click the Export button to export the statistics as a .csv (comma-separated
values) file.
Click the Print button to print the statistics.
AltiAgent Manual

Using AltiAgent
Most of the data is self-explanatory, but you might note the following:
Viewing Queues
Click the Queue tab to view the calls in queue for the monitored
workgroups. The call data includes the Caller ID and caller name, if
available, as well as the amount of time the call has been in the workgroup
queue and its priority queue time.
Most of the data is self-explanatory, but you might note the following:
• Queue Time represents the total time a call has been waiting in queue.
• Priority Queue Time represents the amount of time that a call has been
waiting at a specific priority level. Priority queue time will be reset to
0 when the call’s priority is promoted to a higher level.
Pick Up Calls from Queue
To pick up a call from a workgroup queue, click on the queued call and
click the Pickup button. If the agent is connected to a caller, the current call
will be put on hold and the queued call is connected.
Note: This feature must first be enabled by the system administrator.
52 AltiAgent Manual
Using ActiveX Control with Third Party
Applications
The AltiAgent ActiveX Control Object is an ActiveX Object. It works with
AltiAgent by getting call-related information from AltiAgent, which acts as
a server. Based on the call information, AltiAgent will implement
corresponding actions, such as popping up corresponding customer
information and logging Caller ID into a database. For more information on
using ActiveX with AltiAgent, refer to the “AltiAgent ActiveX
Programmer’s Guide” available from AltiGen’s web site

General Information
The General Info tab lets you edit your password, the default trunk access
code, voice mail settings, audio and video behavior, IPTalk settings, and
external database access options.
Default Trunk Access
The trunk access codes are defined by the system administrator. When you

system will automatically select the default trunk access code to place your
call.
56 AltiAgent Manual
Voice Mail Play Options
You can choose to play your messages on your phone set, or play them on
your sound card and speakers. If you choose to play them on your sound
card, you can have the message play as it downloads, or you can download
it completely and play it on an external media player.
IPTalk
If you are using IPTalk, Echo Suppression is checked by default.
TOS (Hex)—The ToS byte indicates the type of service. For IPTalk, you
need high priority service, and the default of “00” set here indicates high
priority service. However, if your company router supports DSCP EF, then
set this field to “A0”. The ToS value is IP Gateway-based. For guidance,
see your system administrator.
From the Voice Through drop-down list, choose the sound card that will
carry the incoming and outgoing voice. It could be a sound card in your PC,
or it could be a USB-based sound card in your headset system.
From the Ring Through drop-down list, choose the device that will carry
the incoming ring. When you’re away from your desk, you may prefer the
ring to come through your PC speakers, rather than your headset system.
Screen Pop, Audio Beep, and Auto Close
Select the Audio Beep check box if you want your PC to beep you when
you have a call.
Note: The Screen Pop and Audio Beep selections on this screen differ
from the Alert option you can select in the Advanced dialog box,
which alerts you when a call goes into your workgroup’s queue.
See “Advanced Options for Web-based and Workgroup Calls” on
page 59 for details.
Select the Auto Close check box to have AltiAgent close the pop-up
window after you have finished with the call.
AltiAgent Manual
57
Configuration
Select the Screen Pop check box if you want an AltiAgent window to pop
up on your screen when you have a call. You can then click a call to take it
or perform other AltiAgent actions. For AltiAgent to pop up, you cannot
have closed the application entirely, but it can be minimized.
Accessing Databases
AltiAgent can access phone numbers from your Microsoft Outlook,
Outlook Express, ACT!, or GoldMine® database. During installation, the
install program reads which applications you have installed on your PC.
In the drop down list under Use Database, select the database you want to
use.
Note: If you select Outlook, MAXCS will load all the subfolders and data
in your main Contacts folder, which will take a few moments.
Once the data is loaded, you can close the Configuration window,
reopen it, and click the Select Folder button that now appears to
choose which Contacts subfolders you want to use.
You also have these additional options:
• Select the For Screen Pop check box to have a database contact
window pop up when you receive a call from someone for whom you
have a record in the database contact directory.
• Select the For Dial-by-Name check box to enable access to the names
in the database directory when you dial. With this option checked, the
names and their associated numbers in your Outlook, ACT!, or
GoldMine® directory are added to the contact list in the dial pad
window.
Note: If the contact entry has an extension number as part of the
dialing number, the extension number is displayed but will not
be included in the digits dialed by MAXCS.
• Match Digits—Select the number of digits to match for caller ID.
Matching starts from right and moves left. This option is for calls that
go through IP and for international calls that have a digit prepended,
like 0. For example, if you choose 7 (the default) in the Match Digits
field, and the number is 10.10.10.6- 915102529712, AltiAgent would
match the last 7 digits, or 2529712, to identify the caller for you.
• Check the Update database when click OK check box at the bottom
of the tab to refresh the data AltiAgent accesses from the database.
• Country Code—If you selected Outlook or Outlook Express, the
Country Code field is displayed. Enter the country code of the local
AltiAgent user; US country code is “1”.
58 AltiAgent Manual
Color Selection
Select either Nattierblue (default) or Burgundy as the color of the
AltiAgent window.
Miscellaneous
Release Link Tie (IP Trunk)—When checked, clicking the Transfer
button will automatically send send “FLASH *” to release a tie trunk if the
incoming call is through an IP trunk. (Option is disabled by default.)
Important: Before checking this check box, see your phone system
administrator. If your company is using multiple systems and
the tie trunk feature, the administrator needs to have used
AltiEnterprise Manager to synchronize the systems.
Otherwise this feature will not work.
Note: The call to be transferred must originate from an AltiServ
system running 5.0 or later.
Disable Auto Format—If the MAXCS server’s country code is US/
Canada, AltiAgent automatically adds the long distance/international
dialing prefix (corresponding to the server’s country code) when returning
a call from voice mail or when making a call from Call History. If this is
not right for your situation, check Disable Auto Format.
Advanced Options for Web-based and Workgroup
Calls
AltiAgent Manual
59
Configuration
This option is available if you are logged in as a workgroup agent but not
as a desktop user. Click the Advanced button to select advanced options.
• The first three radio buttons provide choices for when to open a text
chat session during web-based calls—that is, whether to open IPTalk
in coordination with the calls. You can choose always, never, or to be
asked each time you receive a web call.
• Select the Pop up caller data information when you receive a
WebCall check box to have the Caller Data window pop up
automatically when you connect to a web-based call. See “Viewing
Caller Data” on page 45.
• Select Alert for calls in queue to have AltiAgent alert you via a screen
pop and audio beep when a new call enters the workgroup queue.
• If the MAXCS server’s country code is not USA/Canada, AltiAgent
displays the check box Insert long distance/international dialing
prefix. When checked, AltiAgent will add the long distance/
international dialing prefix (corresponding to the server’s country
code) when returning a call from voice mail, or when making a call
from call history. If the MAXCS server’s country code is USA/
Canada, this check box is not displayed.
• Select Use external recorder to use any client voice recording system
you have installed. Use the Search button to browse to the .exe file.
One Number Access (ONA)
If you are expecting calls that you want to receive regardless of where you
are, you can have the system forward those calls to you. You must specify
the Caller IDs for the calls you want forwarded, and the numbers where you
can be reached.
If the system is unable to connect the call (can’t identify a Caller ID or can’t
reach you at any of the numbers you specify), the call is sent to your voice
mail.
When you answer an ONA call, you may be required to enter your
extension password, depending on the configuration for your extension set
by your system administrator.
Before You Set Up ONA
• ONA must be enabled for your extension by your system
administrator.
60 AltiAgent Manual
• The settings on your AltiAgent Call Handling tab must not conflict
with ONA. Specifically:
— Enable Do Not Disturb must not be checked. If it is, when your
line is busy, all calls will go into voice mail and not to the ONA
forwarding numbers you specify.
— Enable Forward to must not be checked. If it is, all calls will be
forwarded according to this setting.
See “Call Handling” on page 63 for details on these settings.

If you choose Enable schedule based access, you can set up to four
different schedules in the dialog box that pops up.
3.
Check the Enable Call Screening check box if you want the system
to prompt the ONA caller to record a caller name to continue ONA.
4.
If you want, check the Verify Caller ID based on the following check
box and then specify the incoming phone numbers for ONA. If ONA
finds one of these numbers on an incoming call, it will forward the call
to you.
You can enter up to 10 phone numbers in the Caller ID Verification
fields. For local numbers, use 7 digits (5555555). For long distance
numbers, use 10 digits—area code + local number.
Note: If you enter no numbers in the Caller ID Verification fields and
ONA is enabled, ONA is made available to every caller.
Using a Password
You can use a Caller ID Verification field to enter a password number
such as “5555” so that a caller who knows this password can use
ONA to find you, regardless of where they are calling from. Tell the
caller to dial 1 during your personal greeting and then enter the password.
5.
Enter the Forwarding Numbers to be used by the system to find you
when ONA is active. You can set up to four different numbers—
extensions or outside numbers. For outside numbers, use the
drop-down list to select the trunk access code you want to use. Specify
whether the number is an extension or outside number and if a
password is required.
62 AltiAgent Manual
When ONA is active, the system dials the forwarding number(s) in
the order from Forwarding Number 1 through Forwarding Number 4.
Note that this number order does not correspond to the Schedule
order—for example, Forwarding Number 2 is not used first during
Schedule Number 2.
Note: If your system administrator has not configured your extension to
require you to enter your extension password when answering an
ONA call, then a call forwarded via ONA that is picked up by a
voice mail box, fax machine, or answering machine will connect,
and will not try any subsequent Forwarding Numbers. Therefore,
if you want ONA to use such an option as a last resort, it should be
Forwarding Number 4.
You can set the ONA ring duration from 5 to 45 seconds using the Ring
drop-down lists. Default value is 20 seconds. The system will ring the ONA
target within the specified time limit. If the ring time exceeds 30 seconds,
the system will play a phrase every 15 seconds (playing time is included in
ring time).
Call Handling
Click the Call Handling tab in the Config window to configure incoming
call handling for your extension.

Forwarding All Calls
If you want to forward calls to an external number, select a trunk access
code in the drop-down list, then begin with the outside trunk or route access
digit and any long distance prefix digits such as 1 and area code.
Note: Forwarding calls to a pager is possible but not recommended since
callers will only hear what is heard when calling a pager and might
not know to enter a return phone number unless instructed.
Do Not Disturb
If you check Enable Do Not Disturb, all incoming calls are forwarded
according to your Enable Busy Call Handling settings, described below.
If you check Enable Do Not Disturb, use the Activity drop-down list to
select the activity that applies to you:
1 - In-System, 2 - In-Personal, 3 - Meeting, 4 - Away From Desk,
5 - Business Travel, 6 - Personal Time Off
64 AltiAgent Manual
The remaining three activity codes (7, 8, 9) may or may not be customized
by the system administrator.
Note: Checking Enable Do Not Disturb here has the same effect as
clicking the DND button in the AltiAgent main window. Also, if
"System" or "Personal" is the activity you select, it will not be
displayed on the AltiGen IP phone LCD; all other activities are
displayed.
Busy Call Handling and No Answer Handling
You can use these options to specify how you want to handle incoming
calls when you’re already on the phone or when you can’t answer the
phone, for example, when you’ve checked Enable Do Not Disturb.
If you want to use the auto attendant and you don’t know the number of the
phrase or menu you want to use, check with your system administrator.
Place call in queue is available only if your system administrator has
enabled queuing for you or your workgroup.
Number of Rings Before Forwarding
The Number of Rings Before Forwarding setting pertains to almost all
the options on this tab. It is the number of times the phone rings before the
system forwards the call to an extension, voice mail, or the auto attendant.
To have AltiAgent automatically pick up the call, check the Enable
Automatic Answering after x Seconds check box and use the arrow keys
to choose the number of seconds.
Call Waiting Options
Call waiting options are available only if the Enable Busy Call Handling
check box has been checked, but this option is available only for personal
calls.

nor callee will hear a ring tone.
• Multiple Call Waiting—enables a “personal queue” of multiple calls
waiting. You must also select the Place Caller In Queue option under
Enable Busy Call Handling to enable this option. This allows you to
transfer or park the current call before picking up the next call in
queue.
• Live Call Handling—when enabled, allows a caller to hear a ringback
tone when the called party is in voice mail, paging, transfer, or
conference status.
