Product Description
MyCalls Call Centre
MyCalls Call Centre provides real time monitoring of an SV8100 with ACD working. ACD works on a
concept on agents logging into ACD groups to take calls. The longest waiting call in an ACD group is
delivered to the agent that has been idle to longest. MyCalls Call Centre can show in real time the
status of ACD queues and agents. Detailed reports can be produced on agent and ACD group
performance.
MyCalls Agent Control
MyCalls Agent Control provides a major enhancement to MyCalls Call Centre. With agent control, you
can use the MyCalls application to login to ACD to take calls. Unavailable codes can be setup so that
when an agent will not be taking calls, they can specify a reason why. An ACD supervisor will have
the ability to control the status of multiple agents. In addition to the MyCalls Call Centre Reports, there
are additional reporting features available in MyCalls Agent Control.
This manual is intended to give an installer with an understanding of MyCalls and SV8100 ACD the
ability to install and configure MyCalls Call Centre.
Requirements
An SV8100 telephone system using system software version 5.0 or greater. For ACD to work an
appropriate number of ACD Client licenses should be installed on the SV8100.
A TCP/IP connection to the SV8100 is required for the SMDR output, MIS Output and for the Agent
Control Port.
Telephone System
MyCalls will run on an SV8100 PBX running version 5 system software or greater and version 5 of the
PC programming tool.
MyCalls PC Specification
The MyCalls server is the PC that is responsible for communicating with the PBX and holding the
MyCalls database. MyCalls clients can be installed that will retrieve information from the MyCalls
server. A dedicated PC is strongly recommended for the MyCalls Server.

manual for further details.
Please note, the PC Specification for running in MyCalls Call Recorder and MyCalls Enterprise model
are different, refer to the appropriate manual for further details.
You will need local administrator rights to the PC to install MyCalls.
Agent Control requires a valid license containing the Agent Control feature to be installed on the
SV8100.
MyCalls Call Centre
SV8100 Programming
The SV8100 should be programmed for ACD working refer to the ACD Installation manual for further
details. The SV8100 should also be programmed for MyCalls. MyCalls will require the following item
set in accordance with the existing ACD and MyCalls programming.
Wizards / Advanced Items / ACD (Automatic Call Distribution) / ACD Agent Setup / ACD Login Code.
Set the number of digits an agent should enter to logon to ACD. This agent ID is used by MyCalls to
identify the agent and does not have to match the extension number. The idea is where ever you
logon using your agent ID, your call statistics will always be assigned to you.
Configuring MyCalls
Configuring Pilot Numbers
Calls that are delivered to ACD groups are referred to as Pilot Numbers in MyCalls. Pilot numbers are
displayed in MyCalls as a two digit number ranging from 01-64. If MyCalls sees calls to Pilot Numbers
that is doesn’t already know about, it will auto learn them and add them into MyCalls.
Any pilot numbers that are not auto learnt can be added manually. If MyCalls sees a call to a new
pilot number that it does not know about, it will automatically add it into its configuration. Any pilot
numbers that have been automatically added into MyCalls will need setting as ACD queues. In
MyCalls, click Configure / Telephone System / Devices / Pilot Numbers / Create or edit. When editing
the pilot numbers, you can assign ACD using the drop down menu in the Type column.
To manually add a pilot number, you can click ‘Add new pilot number’ in ‘Edit Pilot Numbers’ or click
create a range of pilot numbers in Configure / Telephone System / Devices / Pilot Numbers. When
adding the pilot numbers, make sure to set the type to ACD Queue.
Creating Users / Agents Using MyCalls
From the Configure / Organisation menu, typically here you would create groups that represent
departments or common groups of agents. These groups can be used to create real time windows or
for reporting purposes. Within the groups, if required, you can create sub groups to build up a tree
type structure to represent departments within a company. Use the ‘Create a New Group’ option to
create a group.
Once you have created a group, you need to create users within the groups. Select which group the
user will belong to and click ‘Create a New User.’
Enter the user details as required, the only mandatory field is the name field. Any number of uniquely
named users can exist per organisation group. Enter a password if the user will be required to enter a
password to login to MyCalls. The user role should be selected from the drop down menu, the user
role defines the access level of the user within the MyCalls application. For a detailed description on
which features are available to the different user roles refer to the version differences document
accessible via the help menu in MyCalls. If MyCalls Call Recorder is being used, you can give the
user permission to playback recorded calls by selecting ‘Enable Call Playback.’ If you wish to create
real time views displaying statistics for the user the select ‘Enable Real Time Statistics.’
Once users have been created, they need assigning to a PIN number. The pin number is the code
entered by an agent when they are prompted to ‘Input Your ID’ on the SV8100 Keyset. To assign a
user to a pin number, go to Configure / Telephone System / Select the PBX / Devices / User Logins /
PIN Codes. Click ‘Create or Edit a User Login’
At the Edit User Logins screen, click ‘Add new User Login.’ In the Login ID, enter the digits that the
agent uses to logon with.
Once the login ID is entered, click select to choose a user. In the ‘Type part of a user name here’ start
to enter the name of the user and click on the user from the list of users displayed underneath. Click
select and the user will appear in the ‘Selected user’ box. Click OK to save the settings.
Click OK again to confirm the changes.
You will now return to the Edit User Logins screen, repeat the procedure for each ACD Agent that will
logon.
Once users have been created, they will need to logout and back into ACD in order for MyCalls to start
reporting on the newly created agents.
Users can be optionally assigned to extensions, this is beneficial for when users use the same
extension all of the time. To assign an extension to a user go to Configure / Telephone System / PBX
/ Devices / Extensions / Create or Edit Extensions. Click the select button next to the Default User
box.
Now select the user in the same method as when assigning the user to the PIN number and click OK
to save changes.
Creating Users Using The Config Import Tool
If there are numerous users to create, the Config Import Tool can be used to speed up the procedure.
When using the Config Import Tool to create users on an existing installation, you should copy and
paste all extensions that are used on the system. If you have existing extensions already configured
extensions will be overwritten when the new configuration is imported. Other devices, such as DDI’s
and trunks will not be altered so long as they are not copied into the Config Import Tool. The General
page will also need to be copied across.
When the extension information is pasted into the Config import tool, there is an option to ‘Create
Default Pins.’ By clicking on this button, the extension numbers are duplicated across to the PIN field.
If required, the numbers can be changed by over typing them. The same idea applies to users. Click
the ‘Create Default Users’ button to populate the users column. The user names that are generated
can be edited if required. The user role can be changed by selecting one of the options in the drop
down menu in the user type column.
An Administrator user name and password have to be entered when setting up users in the Config
Import Tool. Click the disk icon in the Config Import Tool to send the configuration into MyCalls. After
import users using you will have to create organisation groups as required and move the newly
imported users in to the appropriate groups.
To check that the user logons are working, you need to login to MyCalls and create a real time user
view. From the MyCalls menu select View / Real Time Information / Real Time Status / Users / Create
a New User Status View.
Select the organisation group the agent / agents belong to, choose to ‘Show Overview’ and click OK.
Once the user status screen is displayed, click the double arrows pointing downwards next to the
user’s name, this will show more detail about the agent. If the agent is logged off, their status will
show as logged off.
Once the agent logs on, their status will change to show that they are available. If the Agent was
already logged on when they were created in MyCalls, they will need to logoff / logon before their
status will be displayed correctly.
Creating Real Time Windows
There are several different Real Time windows that can be created in MyCalls. Real Time Statistics,
Single Value Windows and Combination Value Windows acts in the same way they do in a non ACD
configuration. The main differences with working in an ACD environment is the Real Time Status
windows, which can be used to display Agent Status and Pilot Number status in various different
ways. A real time user view will show an agents status regardless of if they are logged into ACD or
not. A pilot number view will show the number of calls in queue and display agents that are logged
into specified ACD queue.
Real Time Status – Pilot Numbers
A real time pilot number status view will show which agents are who is logged into a pilot number and
some calls in queue information. From the View menu select Real Time Status / Pilot Numbers /
Queue Status / Create a New Queue Status View.
Select the Pilot number you wish to create the view for and choose either a detailed, overview or
summary view and click OK. A summary of the different views are as follows:
Show Detailed is a moving status window where users move around based upon which state they are
in and how long they have been in that state. The number of calls in queue, Longest Wait Time
(duration of the call queuing the longest in HH:MM:SS) and the CLI of the longest waiting caller. In the
sample below, there are 3 users available to take calls. Agent 200 is at the top of the list because
they have been in the available state the longest. If agent 200’s extension was to ring with an ACD
call, Agent 200 would move to the ringing column. If 5 extensions were ringing, then there would be 5
extensions in the ringing column, the call that had been ringing the longest would be at the top of the
list.
Show Overview will show all agents against the selected pilot number, the agents will remain in the
same place and the colour of the agent will change based upon what state they are in. If you click the
double arrows next to the agent’s name, more information is displayed about their status. The number
of calls in queue, the longest wait time and CLI of the longest waiting caller are also displayed.
The Show Summary will display the number of calls in queue and longest wait time, no real time agent
statuses are shown.
Real Time Status – Users
A user view will show the status of a user regardless of if they are logged on or not.
From the MyCalls menu, click View / Real Time Information / Real Time Status / Users / Create a New
User Status View.
Choose which organisational group to create the user view for and choose which type of view to wish
to create
The detailed and Overview views are the same as you can create against pilot numbers.
The Summary View for users is fixed grid view and displays the user’s status. As the user changes
status, the colour of line changes and the Status field is updated.
MyCalls Agent Control
MyCalls Agent Control uses a separate TCP Port connection to the SV8100 that allows agents and
supervisors to control their ACD status using the MyCalls application. It works by sending AIC logon
commands via the Agent Control TCP Port. An AIC code is created for each ACD group and when an
agent requests to login to ACD groups 1, 2 and 3, MyCalls will send 3 separate commands telling the
SV8100 to login the designated agent to groups 1, 2 and 3.
MyCalls uses ACD group 64 as a holding area for agents, if for example you login to groups 1, 2 and
3, MyCalls will first log you in to ACD group 64, then 1, 2 and 3. For this reason, the SV8100 should
not be programmed to deliver any calls to ACD group 64. There is a limit on the number of times an
agent can logon using AIC commands, after the agent has logged on using 16 different AIC code, they
will need to logout before they will be allowed to logon to any more groups. For these reasons, an
ACD agent can only logon to 15 ACD groups. It is not possible to control the status of an agent while
they are on an internal call.
MyCalls Agent Control requires a valid Agent Control License.
SV8100 Programming
Note: Agent Control requires system software 3 of greater
The TCP Port for Agent Control should be set in Wizards / Advanced Items / ACD / ACD MIS Setup,
set ACD Agent Control TCP Port Number to 4002.
Each Agent must be set to AIC login, Wizards / Advanced Items / ACD Agent Setup / ACD Agent Log
in Mode
64 sequential AIC logons needs to be created.
AIC codes 9 – 57 should also be created.
Its good practice to create all groups between 1 and 64 regardless are if they using all ACD groups.
ACD group 64 must be created in order for agent control to function correctly.
Configuring MyCalls for Agent Control
Before you can configure Agent control, you must install a valid license containing the Agent Control
feature. To check if you have an agent control license, click help about in MyCalls and review the
License Details. Typically on an SV8100, the license would have been gathered from the LMS
(License Management Server) and installed on to the SV8100’s CPU. MyCalls will then read the
license from the SV8100. Refer to the MyCalls Installation manual for further details on MyCalls
licensing on the SV8100.
Set the Agent Control IP Address / TCP Port
From the Configure / Telephone System menu, expand your PBX and go to Agent Control / Configure
Agent control
From the Agent Control Configuration screen, select the PBX Type as NEC SV8100 and click Edit
In the PBX Connection Configuration screen, enter the IP Address of the PBX and the TCP Port used
for Agent Control. The transaction Timeout should be left at 5 seconds. The start AIC code is the first
AIC code that was created during the SV8100 Programming, by default leave the Start AIC code at 1.
If for some reason, the AIC codes have been created starting from some other code, you can change
the start AIC code. If for example the AIC codes started so that AIC code 100 logged into ACD group
1, then AIC 101 logged into ACD Group 2, you would set the AIC start code to be 100. Click OK twice
to save the changes, MyCalls will attempt to connect to the once you have configured this setting.
Agent Control Groups
Agents have to be assigned to an Agent Control Group. An Agent control group is where you can give
a number of agents the ability to logon to different ACD groups. If unavailable code groups have been
created, they can also be assigned to the Agent Control Group. In Configure / Telephone System /
Agent Control select ‘Create or Edit an Agent Control Group.’
In the Edit Agent Control Groups, click ‘Add New Agent Control Group.’
When creating an Agent Control Group, enter a name for the group and add the users to the group.
To add a user, start to type the users name in the ‘Type part of a name here’ box, select the user from
the box below and click the add button. All members of the group are shown in the ‘Included users’
dialog box.
Note: An agent can only belong to one Agent Control Group.
Once all the users are added to the group, in the lower section of the window, you can select which
ACD groups the agent can logon to. Add the ACD queues to the included ACD queues and select if
the ACD queues are a primary login or not. If an ACD queue is set as a Primary login, then when an
agent clicks the login button, they are logged into all Primary login queues. The agent can then
optionally login to any of the other included ACD queues.
Unavailable Codes
Unavailable codes can be put into groups and assigned to Agent Control Groups. Unavailable codes
allow agents to specify a reason for going unavailable. This unavailable code is displayed in real time
status windows in the MyCalls application, unavailable codes can also be reported against.
To create an unavailable code group, you must first create the unavailable codes you require, go to
Configure / Telephone System / Unavailable Codes. Click on create or Edit Unavailable Codes.
On a default installation, there 10 unavailable codes, you can add new codes as required
When adding a new unavailable code, enter the Code number, which is the number assigned to the
code. The name is used to identify the code in MyCalls. The short name is displayed in real time user
status windows when users make them selves unavailable.
Once all the required codes have been created, they have to be put into groups and assigned to an
Agent Control Group. Go to Configure / Telephone System / PBX / Agent Control / Unavailable Code
Groups / Create an Unavailable Code Groups and click Create an Unavailable Code Group.
Enter a name for the group and click OK.
Now navigate to the group and click Edit Unavailable Code Group Configuration.
Choose which codes will be assigned to the group by ticking the included box, click OK once you have
selected all the code needed.
Now the unavailable code group has been created, it should be assigned to the appropriate Agent
Control Group. Go to Agent Control / Create of Edit and Agent Control Group, select the Agent
Control Group and click edit. From the drop down menu, select the Unavailable Code Group.
Create agent control groups and unavailable codes as required.
Completion Codes
Completion Codes are available in MyCalls, for details on configuring completion codes, refer to the
MyCalls end user guide.
Using MyCalls Agent Control Features.
As an Agent
When an Agent logs in into MyCalls, they can use the Agent Control Toolbar to carry out various
actions. From the view menu, check the Agent Control Toolbar option. Once visible, the Agent
Control Toolbar can be moved around the application.
The toolbar can also be moved out of the MyCalls application and used as a free floating application.

login the Agent to either their Primary Login Queues or any individual queues assigned to the Agent.
Once an Agent is logged in, you can control their Agent status further. You can put the agent in a
wrap up state or an unavailable state. If unavailable codes are being used, you can specify an
unavailable reason from the list.
The logon / logoff options can be used to login / logout of individual groups.
Call Centre Reporting
With MyCalls Call Centre you can produce reports based around users (agents) or pilot numbers
(ACD groups.) When running reports you should filter be either pilot number of organisation group.
When reporting against Agents, if essential that agent login and logout each day. MyCalls will
calculate how long an agent has been logged in by looking at when an agent first logged in and when
they last logged out. If an agent was still logged in when the report is run then the statistics may not
be correct.
Sample Agent Activity Report.
To create an Agent Activity Report that will show Agent based stats, carry out the following
instructions.
From MyCalls, click Reports / Reports / Report Templates / Usage / Custom Group Summary for each
Member / Create Saved Report Item.
Enter a name for the report, select a Report Group and click OK.
The report wizard will start, the first step of the wizard is to configure the reporting period. Choose the
period the report will run for and click next.
From the upper section of the Custom Group Summary for each Member Configuration, select the
Device Type as Organisation Group and choose which group the report will be for. If you wish to
report against Unavailable Code, then select which code will be included in the reports. Only 10
unavailable codes can be reported against in a single report.
