About Enterprise Edge Attendant Console
1
Enterprise Edge Attendant Console is an application that provides centralized call
management and call activity reporting to a business. It runs on one or more
Pentium® class personal computers (PCs).
With Enterprise Edge Attendant Console, a telephone attendant uses a graphical
user interface. You can customize the way Enterprise Edge Attendant Console is
set up to best suit your company’s call management requirements. The attendant
uses the interface to:
•
originate calls
•
answer and manage multiple calls
•
view a company’s name before answering a call
•
record, add and change caller information for future use
•
quickly access information about a caller
•
transfer calls to employees or their voice message mailbox
•
send the caller’s name to the employee’s Enterprise Edge telephone display
•
park calls and page employees
•
view information in a Directory about your company’s employees such as their
extension number, person status and telephone status
•

How Enterprise Edge Attendant Console works
Enterprise Edge Attendant Console is a client/server software system consisting of
three components:
•
Server component
•
Client component
•
Reports component
Server component
The Server component supports the Client component running on PCs connected
through a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) based LAN.
The Server component also uses this interface to request Enterprise Edge server
call processing features.
The Server component communicates with the Client components using
TCP/IP to pass information about call arrival, telephone status and the database to
the Client components as required. The Server component also handles Client
component requests for Enterprise Edge server operations.
The Server component maintains and collects call-processing information in a
database. The Server component uses the information in the database for call
handling. The Server component also maintains call detail information for
reporting purposes.
P0911959 Issue 02
Enterprise Edge 2.0 Attendant Console Set Up and Operation Guide
8 Preparing for installation
Client component
The Client component controls the Enterprise Edge Attendant Console graphical
user interface. The Client component communicates with the Server component
using TCP/IP to perform call handling on the Enterprise Edge server and to access
and manage the server database.
The Client component enhances the telephone attendant’s productivity and
responsiveness by displaying:
•
incoming call information
•
Enterprise Edge telephone status
•
directory information
•
call disposition requests
Note: The Client component must be installed on all attendants’ PCs.
Reports component
The Reports component lets you view and print the information in the call
processing database that is maintained by the Server component. The Reports
component is installed automatically with the Client component. The Reports
component accesses the server database using TCP/IP.
Company model
You can set up an Enterprise Edge Attendant Console system with a networked
model. In a networked model, one or more attendants manage the calls for a
company with their PCs connected through a network to the Server component.
To set up more than one attendant to manage a company’s calls, you can connect
the Server component to additional PCs through a LAN. The Client component
can be installed on LAN-attached PCs. A Client component license is required for
each additional copy of the Client component.
Requirements for Enterprise Edge Attendant Console
Install the Reports component on the same PC as the Client component.
Before you install Enterprise Edge Attendant Console, check that your equipment
meets:
•
Enterprise Edge telephone system requirements
•

2. Click the Close button.
Types of Attendant setups
You must configure each PC that has the Client component installed to handle calls
either as a main attendant, overflow attendant, backup attendant or assistant
attendant.
Full-time main attendant setup
The full-time main attendant is a telephone operator configuration where the
Attendant Console window is always visible. You can define a number of full-time
attendants. Every Client component must have the server ID and Attendant
extension options configured for the Client component to function. The server ID
tells the Client component where the Server component is located. The Attendant
extension setting tells the Client component which Enterprise Edge telephone
belongs to the attendant.
After you define the settings, incoming calls to the attendant’s telephone appear as
a yellow Ringing Loop button on the Attendant window. If the attendant’s
telephone is programmed to receive all incoming calls for the company (main
attendant) the Enterprise Edge Attendant Console Client component also displays
the calls.
To receive and make telephone calls, the Client component requires a telephone
extension associated with this component. The extension must be a valid extension
on the Enterprise Edge server and must be the telephone at the attendant’s desk.
Enterprise Edge 2.0 Attendant Console Set Up and Operation Guide
P0911959 Issue 02
Configuring Enterprise Edge Attendant Console 23
To set or change the attendant’s extension:
1. On the Tools menu click Options.
The Options dialog box appears with the Options tab displayed.
2. At the Attendant option, in the My Extension box, type the extension number

Part-time main attendant setup
The part-time main attendant is an attendant that can answer incoming calls and
perform additional functions on the PC, such as word processing.
The difference between the full-time main attendant setup and the part-time main
attendant setup is that part-time has additional Attendant options that allow
notification of incoming calls when the Client component is minimized. Refer to
Full-time main attendant setup on page 22 and Setting up other Attendant features
on page 26.
Backup attendant setup
A backup attendant is an attendant position that receives calls that are redirected
from another attendant position. The backup attendant can also operate as a main
attendant, an assistant attendant, or any combination of the attendant types.
Each Attendant PC that is set up to receive incoming calls must be set up to
redirect the calls to the backup Attendant PC.
Note: Calls can be redirected to another Enterprise Edge Attendant Console
attendant or any Enterprise Edge Voice extension.
If the attendant needs to leave their position, they activate the backup attendant
position by clicking the Out button on the Attendant Console window. This button
indicates that the attendant is not at the station diverts calls to the backup position.
After the attendant clicks the Out button, they can complete the calls currently in
progress on the Attendant Console window. New calls appear at the position, but
also appear at the backup position. Although the attendant is out, the Client
component can process calls, if required.
P0911959 Issue 02
Enterprise Edge 2.0 Attendant Console Set Up and Operation Guide
24 Configuring Enterprise Edge Attendant Console
To set up the backup attendant:
1. On the Tools menu click Options.
The Options dialog box appears.
2. At the Redirect calls to option, in the Extension box, type the backup
attendant’s extension number.
3. To control call redirection, on the Attendant window click Attendant and

4. Click the OK button.
Overflow attendant setup
An overflow attendant receives calls that are redirected from another attendant
position if there are more incoming calls than Loop buttons on the other Client
component. For example, if a main attendant is already handling six incoming
calls, the next call is redirected to the overflow attendant until one of the main
attendant’s six Loop buttons is free.
If the overflow condition (all Loop buttons in use) occurs on the Attendant
position, the Loop overflow indicator appears in the Attendant status bar and the
overflow call is diverted to the specified overflow extension.
The overflow attendant can also operate as a main attendant, an assistant attendant
or any combination of the attendant types.
If you set up an attendant PC as the overflow attendant, each attendant PC that is
set up to receive incoming calls must be set up to redirect calls to the overflow
attendant PC whenever overflow conditions exist. You need to activate the
overflow feature at each attendant PC.
Note: Calls can be redirected to another Enterprise Edge Attendant Console
attendant or any Enterprise Edge extension.
To define the overflow extension:
1. On the Tools menu click Options.
The Options dialog box appears.
2. At the Redirect calls to option, in the Extension box, type the overflow
attendant’s extension number.
3. Select Call overflow occurs to redirect calls when all of the main attendant’s
Loop buttons are busy with calls.
4. Click the OK button.

Configuring Enterprise Edge Attendant Console 25
Assistant attendant setup
An assistant attendant provides call coverage for one or more extensions in the
system. This means that you can set up the Attendant so that it monitors all
incoming calls to selected extensions. Since the assistant typically uses a PC for
other work, Enterprise Edge Attendant Console alerts the assistant without
requiring that the Attendant window is always visible on the system.
To set up an assistant attendant:
1. Click the Tools menu and then click Options.
The Options dialog box appears.
2. Select the Assigned extension rings option.
The Call Notification dialog box appears to inform the assistant that there is an
outside call for an Assigned extension.
Use the Assigned feature when an employee wants an assistant attendant, such as
an administrative assistant, to answer the employee’s calls.
Note: Only calls that originate from outside the Enterprise Edge server appear on
the assistant attendant’s window. Internal calls from an extension to an
assigned extension do not appear on the assistant attendant’s window.
Enable the Assistant function by copying extensions to the Assigned list on the
Assigned tab of the Options dialog box.
To add or remove an assistant attendant’s assigned extensions:
1. Click the Tools menu and then click Options.
The Options dialog box appears.
2. Click the Assigned tab on the Options dialog box.
To add an extension, click the extension you want in the All extensions list and
click >> to copy it to the Assigned extensions list.

Notifying the attendant of incoming calls
There are two ways an attendant can be notified of incoming calls:
•
by the Call Notification dialog box. The attendant is notified of incoming calls
with a Call Notification dialog box. The attendant can answer the call by
clicking the Take button on the dialog box or ignore the call and let another
attendant answer it.
•
by a Ringing Loop button. If the window is visible (not minimized), the Call
Notification dialog box does not appear. The attendant is notified of an
incoming call by a Ringing Loop button.
To activate call notification:
1. At the Pop “Call Notification” dialog box when option, select either:
Assigned extension rings - The attendant is notified of calls to the assigned
extensions
or
My extension rings - The attendant is notified when their own extension has
an incoming call.
If both check boxes are clear, the attendant is not notified of calls when the
window is minimized.
Automatically restoring the Attendant Console window when a call comes in
The Attendant Console window is normally minimized or under another window
in a part-time attendant environment. The attendant can restore the Attendant
Console window by clicking the Enterprise Edge Attendant Console button in the
Windows taskbar. A quicker method is to set the Attendant Console window to
restore automatically.
The Client component can automatically restore the Attendant Console window
when the attendant’s extension goes off-hook (“active”). This ensures the attendant
can access the Attendant Console window without having to manually restore it.
To set the Attendant Console window to restore automatically:
1. On the Tools menu click Options.
The Options dialog box appears.
2. In the Restore minimized Attendant screen when option, select the Call
answered on Attendant extension check box.
The Attendant Console window is restored when the attendant uses the
extension to make or answer a call.

connected to Enterprise Edge Voice Messaging, you can disable the Link Transfer
and VM Transfer buttons on the Attendant window.
To disable the Transfer Options:
1. On the Tools menu click Options.
The Options dialog box appears. The Transfer Options options are in the
bottom right of the dialog box.
2. Select the Disable VM Transfer check box to disable the VM Transfer button
or

Starting the Reports component
Although the Reports component is automatically installed with the Client
component, you can start it or quit it independently.
To start the Reports component from the Client component:
1. On the Tools menu click Reports.
The Reports component starts in a separate window.
To start the Reports component from the Start menu:
1. On the Windows taskbar click Start, point to Programs, point to Nortel
Networks, point to Attendant Console Client and then click Reports.
The Reports window opens.
Configuring the Reports component
The first time you start the Reports component, you must locate the server
database, called consoleservice.mdb, on the Enterprise Edge server. The
Enterprise Edge server database is in the directory named consoleservicedb. The
entire path name is:
D:\Data Files\NortelNetworks\Attendant Console\consoleservice.mdb
Note: D: indicates the drive letter, which can vary according to the computer.
Quitting the Reports component
To quit the Reports component:
1. On the File menu click Exit
or
click the Close button in the upper right corner of the Reports window.
Networked operations
Before you install Enterprise Edge Attendant Console, set up the Enterprise Edge
telephone system so that calls arrive at the appropriate extensions. You can set up
Enterprise Edge Attendant Console in a variety of network situations. The
following are two examples of networked operations:
Example - All incoming calls go to two or more attendants
Two or more Enterprise Edge telephones are set up so that incoming calls appear
on the telephones at the same time. The first attendant to answer an incoming call
connects to the caller. As soon as an attendant answers the call, the other
attendants’ telephones stop ringing.
P0911959 Issue 02
Enterprise Edge 2.0 Attendant Console Set Up and Operation Guide
30 Configuring Enterprise Edge Attendant Console
The first step is to set up the attendant telephones. Install the Client component on
each of the Attendant PCs and set them up as main attendants. Each incoming call
appears on the Attendant window of each Attendant PC. The first attendant to
answer a call connects to the caller. The answered incoming call disappears from
the other attendant’s windows.
Example - Incoming calls are divided between two or more attendants
The Enterprise Edge server incoming trunks are divided between two or more
telephones. Each attendant extension is programmed so that a portion of the
incoming calls appear at the telephone. With two attendants, for example, half the
extensions ring at one attendant telephone (Attendant A) and the other extensions
ring at the other attendant telephone (Attendant B).
After you set up the telephones, you can install Enterprise Edge Attendant
Console. As in the previous example, you must set up the Client component as a
main attendant on each of the Attendant PCs. The only difference is that in this
example the overflow feature must be set at each Attendant PC. This means A’s
extension must be set to overflow to B’s and B’s must be set to overflow to A’s.
Verifying Enterprise Edge Attendant Console installation
You must verify Enterprise Edge Attendant Console installation after installation
and setup.
To verify that the installation is successful:
1. On the PC that has the Client component installed, click the Attendant taskbar
button to maximize the window. If the Client component is not running, start
the component.
To start the Client component:
On the Windows taskbar, click Start, point to Programs, point to Nortel
Networks, point to Attendant Console Client and then click Attendant.
2. Press one of the intercom buttons on the attendant’s Enterprise Edge telephone
and check that the telephone status icon of the attendant’s extension in the Full
tab of the Attendant’s Directory shows that the telephone is off-hook.
3. In the Directory list, click the Full tab and click the extension icon of a
telephone located near the Attendant’s telephone. Check that the Target box
contains the Directory information for that extension.
4. Click the Call button. Check that the Attendant extension icon indicates Offhook, the first Loop button indicates Active, and the Target extension is
audibly ringing. Click the Release button to end the call.
Enterprise Edge 2.0 Attendant Console Set Up and Operation Guide
P0911959 Issue 02
Configuring Enterprise Edge Attendant Console 31
5. Go to another Enterprise Edge telephone and obtain an outside line by pressing
an external line button or pressing an intercom button and entering the line
pool access code.
6. Simulate an incoming call by dialing the main outside telephone number of the
Enterprise Edge server. On the Attendant window, check that a Loop button
indicates Ringing and that the Caller ID is shown next to the Loop button.
7. Click the Loop button. Check that the button changes from Ringing to Active
and that the attendant’s extension is connected to the originating telephone.
Check that the Caller Information option has Caller ID information. If
Enterprise Edge server Caller ID hardware is not installed or if you do not
subscribe to Caller ID services, the Caller ID Information boxes are empty.
8. In the Name box in the Caller Information option, select or type a name if
none is present.
9. Click another extension in the Directory list and click the Transfer button.
10. Check that the incoming call leaves the attendant’s extension and the selected
extension produces an audible announcement tone. Also check that the name
entered in the Name box appears on the first line of the telephone display and
display buttons on the second line.
11. Press the Talk display button on the called extension and check that a voice
connection is made to the originating telephone.
The Server component and the Client component installations are now verified. If
any of the steps do not occur properly, refer to Troubleshooting the Server
component on page 35 or Troubleshooting Client component installation on page
39 to check for installation errors.
If you are installing a networked model, you also need to check the Client
component installation on all of the Attendant PCs.

Meaning / Action required
The Reports component was unable
to generate the listing from the
database specified.
Make sure that the database selected is created by the
server.
This error occurs if a user tries to use the Employee or
Customer directories after connecting to a database that
is not a Enterprise Edge Attendant Console database.
The error is usually preceded by a message from the
Microsoft Jet database engine that says: “The
Microsoft Jet database engine cannot find the input
table or query ‘People’. Make sure that it exists and
that its name is spelled correctly.”
The animation file used to indicate
that a report is running could not be
found. It might be missing or
corrupted. As a consequence, no
animation plays while the reports are
running.
This error occurs during Reports start if the “run.avi”
file is not found in the Reports path. Check that the file
is installed correctly and is not deleted. The component
runs, but the animation does not play while generating
reports.
The maximum number of selections
allowed in any single category is 100.
Limit your selections or cancel the
selection and choose the All option.
The maximum number of selections from the
Customers or Employee categories is 100 each. Trying
to click OK from a directory dialog box with more than
100 selections causes this error and returns the user to
the directory dialog box, from which they must reduce
the number of selections.
The report could not find the
necessary data in the specified
database. Make sure the specified
database is a valid system database:
This error occurs if a report is run, but the database
selected is not a valid Enterprise Edge Attendant
Console database. The colon is followed by a new line
on which a more specific error message from the
Crystal Reports Engine is displayed. This message is
usually “Unable to connect: incorrect table location”.
Reports could not find the needed
report (.rpt) file. Make sure all the
“.rpt” files are installed correctly.
This occurs when generating a report, if the appropriate
“.rpt” file is not found in the Reports directory. Either
the file is deleted, moved, not installed correctly or
corrupted. When corrupted the Crystal Engine can no
longer recognize it as a.rpt file even though the name
indicates it is.
The report file has somehow become
corrupted. The following statement in
English is more detailed information
useful for troubleshooting.
This error occurs if the needed “.rpt” file is found but
does not contain the correct parameters or information.
The Extension Directory Report (using ExtDir.rpt)
does not produce this error because it does not require
any parameters.
The “statement which follows” part occurs on the next
line and is a message from the Crystal Reports Engine.
The message is most often “No Error”.
