Go to Alternative Workflow


This workflow object transfers the caller to an alternative workflow.

1. An Example Scenario

If an Interactive Join Queue object in the workflow has either a Maximum Hold Period (secs) or a Maximum Calls in Queue (count) that is being exceeded, and a subsequent Branch on Value is checked to see which condition caused the caller to pass to the next object, then a Go to Alternative Workflow is useful to direct each condition to a workflow purpose-built for that condition.

2. Add Workflow Object

  1. Open the Workspace.

  2. Select Workflows from the Resources menu.

  3. Select a workflow from the list displayed (you can also create a new one). A schematic representation of the workflow is displayed.

  4. Click the Add Workflow Object icon. The New Workflow Object dialog opens.

  5. Select Go To Alternative Workflow from the drop-down selection list.

When you include Go To Alternative Workflow in your automated workflow, enter the following details:
