NEW ADMIN CHECKLIST 

There are a few important items for new administrators taking over the management of the phone system. 

ENSURE YOU ARE ADDED AS A CONTACT 

Before an old admin leaves, they must add you as an office manager. When changing or adding admins, a current admin must reach out to our Customer Success team. 

Don't have a current admin to add you? 

You need to send a letter or email with an attached PDF including:

  • a written statement that the previous admin is no longer with your organization.
  • the new admin's first and last name.
  • the new admin's email address and contact phone number.
  • a signature from a person within your organization with signing authority. 

Why is this important? 

Office managers have access to the entire organizations call data and user settings so we must ensure that anyone who is given this level of access can be trusted.

As a call center supervisor, you can view, change, and create various functionalities for yourself and your call center. There are three views a call center supervisor can assume in SONAR:

  • My Account - the features in "My Account" view are the same as that of a basic user. Check out the New Basic User article. You can also access your profile from this view.
  • Manage Organzation - features access points that are unique to your user scope and allows you to manage users and call centers within your organization.

VERSATURE INSIGHTS 

Versature Insights takes your call data to the next level to give you actionable insight into the operations of your company, customer experiences, and employee performance. 

Performance Wallboards - use SONAR metrics to display your call data visually through different component types. Create a culture of high performance and accountability at team, cross-team, and individual levels. All metrics are updated every minute. Wallboards are suitable for both large screens and smaller computer monitors. 

The Call Centre Web Header - use a snippet of injectable code that creates an information banner with your call centers name, wait times, and the number of callers in the queue. Use pre-authored javascript code provided by Versature; you can inject the code on any website, customize the look and feel, and provide current hold times and queue statistics.

Long-Term Recordings - view, filter, and listen to call recordings for longer than 6 months. Within the long-term recording section of Insights, you can also keyword search and view call recording transcriptions. You can easily see if agents are hitting those important business talking points, or track if common pain-points and issues are arising in conversations.

Google Sheets - get the most of your call data and better understand the numbers behind your success. After a simple download, you’re ready to start importing your personal call data or your company's call data. To learn how to download the integration and access your call data, check out: 



UNDERSTAND YOUR DESK PHONE 

Most of our clients use the Polycom VVX 300 series. Don't have the VVX 300? Check out articles on our other phones.

The Academy has several instructional articles to assist you; familiarize yourself with the basics: 


Tip!

Use star codes for efficiency.

*11 - Pull a call from one phone to another. Both phones must be connected to the same extension. 

*51 - Log into a call queue. If you are connected to more than one call queue, this star code will log you into all of them. 

*52 - Log out of call queue. If you are connected to more than one call queue, this star code will log you out of all of them. 

*67 - Mask/hide caller ID. Enter *67 and then immediately enter the number you want to dial out. 

*73 - If you have set your extension to forward to your cell phone after hours you can dial *73 from your phone, and it will remove the forwarding answering rule and reset it to ring your phone.

*78 - Activate Do Not Disturb.

*79 - De-Activate Do Not Disturb.

*98 - Access voicemail account. *98 only works if you do not have your voicemails configured to go to your email. 

*90 - Transfer calls directly to voicemail. *90 can be used after an attended call transfer is not answered and the caller wishes to leave a voicemail to the intended recipient.
