Call Scripts

Last Updated: 07/14/2017 Back to Topic All Articles

Call Scripts can be used to provide agents with a script that will display in the browser phone for inbound or outbound calls. The scripts can use markdown (a lightweight and easy-to-use syntax) to format the scripts so that they are easier to read. Additionally, the scripts can use variables that will be replaced with information from the call. Call Scripts are attached to tracking numbers. Each tracking number can have its own Call Script, or you can assign a Call Script to multiple tracking numbers.

As an example, if you have a Tracking Number that is used for flyer for a specific location, you could create a Call Script that will “help” the agent answer the phone correctly with information about the flyer and the location.

Creating Call Scripts

To create a Call Script, click Numbers > Call Scripts. In the upper right, click the “New Script” button. Give the script a name. This is the name you will use to select the script when associating it to a Tracking Number.

In the Script Text input box, type the script that you would like the agent to read or a script that will help guide them while answering or making a call.

Make sure and click the “Save Changes” button.

You can either assign this script to a Tracking Number on the same page by clicking the “Edit Assigned Tracking Numbers” button, or when you are editing a Tracking Number, there is an option to select a Call Script.

After the Call Script has been assigned to a Tracking Number, whenever an agent accepts an incoming call or makes an outgoing call using the assigned Tracking Number, the script will appear at the bottom of the browser phone.

Using Variables

You can use variables to replace elements of the Call Script so that you do not have to create a separate script for every type of call. Continuing the example with the flyer for a location, if your Tracking Numbers are assigned to Tracking Sources that are named like “Flyer Los Angeles”, “Flyer Dallas”, “Flyer Orlando”, etc., then you could create a script that would show the Tracking Source of the call.

To show the Tracking Source, you add variables enclosed in double curly brackets: {{variable_name}}

For example, to add the Tracking Source to the script, the variable name for Tracking Source is “source.” Therefore, you would insert {{source}} into the script.

You can use the property names from a call as the variables in the Call Script. Here is a list of property names that you can include. If a property is not available, it will not insert anything.
