Records, Record Types, Forms, Databases, Queues – How Are They Linked?

Records, Record Types, Forms, Databases, Queues – How Are They Linked?

This example demonstrates the process of setting up and calling a Progressive Campaign.

The setup of all campaign types is the same until the record reaches the Campaign queue.

Administrator

The Administrator sets up the whole campaign "infrastructure" in Daktela by creating the following:

  1. A Record Types. A record type contains one more forms (also know as call scripts) that contain fields for entering information. It can contain databases used to segment records in the record type.

  2. A campaign queue. The queue is paired with the record type and is used to call records contained in it.

Team Leader

The Team Leader uses the infrastructure set up by the Administrator to get the campaign ready for being called. The Team Leader takes the following steps:

  1. Record Types with the record type. They fill out a phone number in the corresponding form field. Depending on the objective of the campaign, they may also fill out other fields. This is usually done using a bulk import.

  2. Activates and deactivates record type databases and campaign queues to manage when each set of records is called.

  3. After the records are called, they evaluate the campaign.

Agent

The Agent calls the records that the Team Leader has set up for them. The Agent takes the following steps:

  1. Logs in to a campaign queue and dials a call to a customer.

  2. If the customer is reached, the Agent fills out the form (that the Administrator set up in the record type) and saves the record. The Record's action is set to Done and it will not be called again.

  3. If the customer is not reached, the record is rescheduled for later or, if Max. repeat attempts has been reached, its action is set to Done and it will not be called again – see How do different campaigns work? for an in-depth description.

The roles above are a typical example. Each contact centre may have its roles and responsibilities set up differently but the underlying process stays the same.
