MiCollab Configuration - Audio settings

Changing the Audio Configuration in MiCollab

The audio for your phone calls will be through your computer automatically. If you would like to use a headset with a microphone for your calls, follow the steps below.

  1. In the MiCollab client, click on your name and then select "Configuration"
    MiCollab Client - select Configuration
  2. In the Configuration dialogue box, select Softphone Settings on the left, to see the devices the softphone will use.
    1. These are originally set to system default, meaning that your audio for the ringer (alerts) and the phone call (speaker) will sound out of the computer's speakers.

    2. Your computer also has a built in microphone that it will use for calls if this is not configured differently.
  3. This can be set up for your personal preference. I set this area up to use my headphones for the Speaker (to hear the caller's voice) and the microphone, while I use my computer's audio device for the Alerts (ringer). This way, I can hear a call coming in, even if I'm not wearing my headset at the time.
  4. Once you have made the changes you believe you would like, click Apply. 
    1. You can confirm the Alert is playing where you want it to come from, by clicking the "Play" button in the Ringtone section.

    1. The users State should always be available, unless stepping away from the phone. Changing your State to "Make Busy" will allow you to select form a list of Make Busy codes to use when you cannot receive calls for any period of time.
      Ignite Web Client - Make Busy codes
  4. When only one person is available to receive phone calls (all staff are Make Busy), the phone call will wait in the queue until it is answered. It is recommended that if there will be a meeting, or only one staff is logged in and needs to make busy, that the State is changed to "Offline" instead of using a make busy code. All staff being in the Offline state will allow for unanswered calls to be sent to the voice mail box, rather than experiencing abnormally long wait times.

Using the "Desktop" or "Dashboard" in Ignite can help you to see if there are calls waiting to be taken and if other users are signed in. This can help you determine if you will need to "Make Busy" when stepping away, or go in to "Offline" mode.

Or, maybe you want to group your Agents by School Type, or some other identifying factor.
