For each block you add, just double click on it and enter the required fields in the pop up screen to setup the corresponding application:



Entry group applications

This group - start, finally and end - manages the begin and the end of a call from an Application point of view.


Start

Description

The Start block must be the very first one in each IVR application. The application will not be published without the Start box: it can be used just once for each IVR.

Parameters

  • Label: here you can type a brief description of the box
  • Answer: If set to YES, the system answers the channel.

Exit Arrows

This block provides just one arrow out to the next step


Finally

Description

This block is executed when the application loses the voice channel. It should be used for example to write some data on a DB after the call hangup or at the end of each IVR.  You can use all the boxes you want after the finally.

Of course boxes for audio playing will not have any effect on the customer experience.

Parameters

  • Audio: name of the audio file you want to play in the current box

Exit Arrows

This box provides just one arrow out to the next step


Menu


Description

This is probably one of the most important application box available on Cally Square. Here you can build a complex menu using a single box: you can play the message, count the retries on errors (i.e. to avoid dangerous loops) and set a variable with the digit value(s) pressed by the customers

Parameters

  • Label: here you can type a brief description
  • Audio: the name of the audio file you want to play in the current box
  • Response Timeout: the maximum number of seconds the system waits before considering the customer not interacting with the application
  • Max Digit: the maximum number of digits the system waits before moving on to the next step
  • Retries: here you can set the number of loops automatically performed in case of digits not valid or timeout**
  • Variable: the variable you want to fill with the digits pressed by the customer.


** Please consider the menu box gives the top priority to the invalid (i) or timeout (t) branches (if present) before routing the call in a loop.


# key can be used as an escape digit or as a valid exit key.

If the user doesn't press any keys when the message plays, there is $timeout milliseconds of silence then the command ends.
The user has the opportunity to press a key at any time during the message or the post-message silence. If the user presses a key while the message is playing, the message stops playing. When the first key is pressed a timer starts counting for $timeout milliseconds. Every time the user presses another key the timer is restarted. The command ends when the counter goes to zero or the maximum number of digits is entered, whichever happens first.

Exit Arrows

The menu box lets you draw many exit arrows according to the following syntax:

  • X: the box waits for one digit if the MaxDigit parameter is set to one
  • XX: the box waits for exactly N digits (in this example N=2)
  • i: the system takes this path if the entry selected is invalid
  • t: the system takes this path if the box goes in case of timeout
  • -: the system considers this branch when the retry value is reached. Timeout and Invalid branches have higher priority than this branch.


It is possible to add multiple choices for each output branch: use just the comma separated characters (see please example on the right)

Parameters

  • Label: here you can type a brief description
  • Digits: the digits you want to be played: they can be both a digit string (i.e. 1234) or a VARIABLE (i.e.  {CALLERID(num)})
  • Escape digits: special character to exit from the playing (i.e. #)

Exit Arrows

This box provides just one arrow out to the next step


Say Number

Description

GetDigits

Description

Here you can prompt the user to insert a series of digits: you can play the message, count the retries on errors (i.e. to avoid dangerous loops) and set a variable with the inserted digits value.
Parameters

  • Label: here you can type a brief description
  • Audio: the name of the audio file you want to play in the current box
  • Response Timeout: the maximum number of seconds the system waits before considering the customer not interacting with the application
  • Min Digit: the minimum number of digits the system can accept without considering it an invalid entry
  • Max Digit: the maximum number of digits the system waits before moving on to the next step
  • Retry: here you can set the number of loops automatically performed in case of invalid digits **
  • Variable: the variable you want to fill with the digits pressed by the customer.


** Please consider that the getdigits box gives the top priority to the invalid (i) branch (if present) before routing the call in a loop.

Pressing the # key has the same effect as the timer running out: the command ends and any previously keyed digits are returned. A side effect of this is that there is no way to read a # key using this command.
If you don't specify $max_digits then the user can enter as many digits as they want.
 
If the user doesn't press any keys when the message plays, there is $timeout milliseconds of silence then the command ends.
The user has the opportunity to press a key at any time during the message or the post-message silence. If the user presses a key while the message is playing, the message stops playing. When the first key is pressed a timer starts counting for $timeout milliseconds. Every time the user presses another key the timer is reset. The command ends when the counter goes to zero or the maximum number of digits is entered, whichever happens first.

Exit Arrows

The getdigits box lets you draw many exit arrows according to the following syntax:

  • x: is the exit arrow, the path taken when a valid digit is inserted. If not present, on valid entry the call will be dropped.
  • i: the system takes this path if the entry is invalid. If not present it will simply loop the getdigits box until it runs out of retries.
  • -: the system takes this path if it runs out of retries. If not present, when the system runs out of retries will simply drop the call.


GetSecretDigits

Description

Here you can prompt the user to insert a series of digits and some of them will be hidden, for security reasons. You can play the message, set how many digits you want to hide, count the retries on errors (i.e. to avoid dangerous loops) and set a variable with the inserted digits value.

Parameters

  • Label: here you can type a brief description
  • Audio: the name of the audio file you want to play in the current box
  • Response Timeout: the maximum number of seconds the system waits before considering the customer not interacting with the application
  • Min Digit: the minimum number of digits the system can accept without considering it an invalid entry
  • Max Digit: the maximum number of digits the system waits before moving on to the next step
  • Retry: here you can set the number of loops automatically performed in case of invalid digits **
  • Hidden Digits Number: the number of digits that the system will hide, for security reasons
  • Hidden Digits Position: you can set if the First or Last #N digits will be hidden
  • Variable: the variable you want to fill with the digits pressed by the customer.


** Please consider that the getsecretdigits box gives the top priority to the invalid (i) branch (if present) before routing the call in a loop.

Pressing the # key has the same effect as the timer running out: the command ends and any previously keyed digits are returned. A side effect of this is that there is no way to read a # key using this command.

LumenvoxASR

Description

This box allows you to do a voice-to-text conversion using the Lumenvox ASR application*


*In order to have this box working you must install Lumenvox on a machine that is reachable by your system.

To know more about this integration click here


The ASR save the results in three channel variables:

  • LUMENVOX_ASR_TRANSCRIPT: the result of the dictation recognition
  • LUMENVOX_ASR_CONFIDENCE: the precision of the recognition, between 0 and 1. Usually values above 0.8-0.9 means that the dictation has been correctly recognised.
  • LUMENVOX_ASR_INSTANCE: the instance of the recognition.

Parameters

  • Label: here you can type a brief description
  • Grammar: The grammar that should be used for the recognition. Grammars can be specified as text/XML inline for built-in grammars or by using a reference to an external file/URI.

If you need to use the multiple grammar, the value of the first grammar must be separated from the second one using a character defined (e.g.: grammar-a%grammar-b, defining the % as a delimiter in the options field gd):




LumenVox provides the following built-in grammars:

  

URI

  
  

Sample Input

  
  

Semantic Interpretation Result

  
  

builtin:grammar/boolean

  

  

"yes",  "no thank you", etc.

  
  

"true" or  "false"

  
  

builtin:grammar/date

  
  

"january  thirteenth" or "december first two thousand"

  
  

"????0113"  or "20001201"

  
  

builtin:grammar/digits

  
  

"one two three  four"

  
  

"1234"

  
  

builtin:grammar/currency

  
  

"eighteen dollars  and four cents"

  
  

"USD18.04"

  
  

builtin:grammar/number

  

  

"four hundred  point five"

  
  

"400.5"

  
  

builtin:grammar/phone

  
  

"area code eight  five eight seven oh seven oh seven oh seven"

  
  

"8587070707"

  
  

builtin:grammar/time

  
  

"six o  clock" or "five thirty p m"

  
  

"0600?" or  "0530p"

  


Options:

Options control details about the recognition. Valid options are:

  • p - Profile to use in mrcp.conf
  • i - Digits to allow recognition to be interrupted with. Set this to "none" to allow LumenVox to process the DTMF using a DTMF grammar. Otherwise, if "any" or other digits specified, recognition will be interrupted and the digit will be returned to dialplan.
  • f - Filename to play while recognition occurs (if empty or not specified, no file is played)
  • t - The recognition timeout (in milliseconds). This is the total amount of time a caller has to speak.
  • b - Barge-in value (no barge-in=0, ASR engine barge-in=1, Asterisk barge-in=2). LumenVox strongly recommends allowing the ASR to perform barge-in instead of Asterisk.
  • gd – The grammar delimiter. Defaults to a comma.
  • ct - The confidence threshold (0.0 - 1.0). If a recognition result has a confidence score below this value, it will be returned as "no match." Defaults to 0.5.
  • sl - The barge-in sensitivity level (0.0 - 1.0). The higher this number, the easier it is to barge-in. Defaults to 0.5.
  • sva - Speed vs. accuracy, set on a scale of 0.0 - 1.0. The higher this number, the faster (and less accurate) recognitions will be. Defaults to 0.5.
  • nb - N-best list length. Defaults to 1; increase this value if you wish to get more answers back from the recognizer.
  • nit - No input timeout. This is the amount of time the caller has to start speaking before the recognizer returns a no-input result.
  • sct - Speech Complete Timeout. This is the amount of time, in milliseconds, LumenVox must detect silence after a user stops speaking before the recognizer begins processing the utterance. Set this lower for single word utterances and higher for longer utterances. In most cases, a value of 800 is correct.
  • dit - DTMF interdigit timeout
  • dtt - DTMF terminate timout
  • dttc - DTMF terminate characters
  • sw - Save Waveform (true/false)
  • nac - new audio channel (true/false)
  • spl - speech language (en-US/en-GB/etc.). If a language is declared in a grammar (it should be) this will be ignored.
  • cdb - clear DTMF buffer (true/false)
  • mt - media type
  • iwu - input waveform URI (only applies to MRCPv2). Not supported by LumenVox.
  • sint - Speech Incomplete Timeout. Not supported by LumenVox.
  • rm - Recognition Mode. Not supported by LumenVox.
  • hmaxd - hotword max duration. Not supported by LumenVox.
  • hmind - hotword min duration. Not supported by LumenVox.

RestAPI

Description

This box allows you to use Restful API to GET, POST, PUT, DELETE data from external applications or sources (for example: ticketing systems, CRM, order systems, and so on). The result of the API request (Body) can also be stored in a Variable.


*Internet connection is required for this box to work


Parameters

  • Label: here you can type a brief description
  • URL: request URL
  • Method: HTTP method (GET, POST, PUT or DELETE)
  • Timeout: request timeout (in seconds: it must be greater than 1 and the default value is 5)
  • Computed Variables Script Path: absolute path of a NodeJS script able to compute variables to pass in the URL, Headers and Bod
  • Headers: request headers (it must be in RAW JSON format, i.e. {"key": "value"})
  • Body: request body (it must be in RAW JSON format, i.e. {"key": "value"})
  • Variable: here you can choose a variable from a pick up list where you want to store the body of the response. The system will parse the body of the response and it will create a variable for each key-value pair using the format variable name + <key> (e.g. variablename.key)

Custom script guidelines

You can valorize custom variables to use in you request using a nodejs script located on your server.

You can insert the absolute path to the script inside the Computed Variables Script Path input.

Remember to follow these important rules:

  • insert the absolute path to the file
  • write the path without quotes
  • the motion user must have both read and write and execution privileges on the js file (or it won't work at all once it is required).
  • The js script must be written in javascript ECMA5, and follow the NodeJs 6.x framework syntax based on this template:

module.exports = function({options_object}, callback){

// custom code

var variables = { code output as object }; // it must be an object, not an array

callback(null, variables);

}

The script also receives the options you inserted in the restAPI block, including URL and method, so you can use them in the script if needed.

e.g.

const { URL } = require('url');

module.exports = function(options, callback){

var request = options;

var method = request.method;

var uri = request.uri;

const myURL = new URL(uri);

var host = myURL.host;

var hostname = myURL.hostname;

var href = myURL.href;

var pathname = myURL.pathname;

// etc...

// additional custom code

var variables = { code output as object };

callback(null, variables);

}

Variables and custom (script) variables

To include asterisk variables in your URL, you must include them in curly brackets.

e.g.

https://myurl.com?phone={CALLERID(num)}

The same apply if you want to include them in the body of your request, or in your headers ( pay attention to the quotes "").

e.g.

{

"phone":"{CALLERID(num)}"

}

To include custom (script) variables, you must include them in double dollar $$ symbols.

e.g.

Your script returns an object like this:

{

key1: "value1",

key2: "value2"

}

To use them in your URL you can write:

https://myurl.com?myvar1=$$key1$$&myvar2=$$key2$$

and it will be completed like this:

https://myurl.com?myvar1=value1&myvar2=value2

The same apply if you want to include them in the body of your request, or in your headers ( pay attention to the quotes "").

So, if your body/header object is written like this:

{

"myvar1":"$$key1$$",

"myvar2":"$$key2$$"

}

it will be completed like this:

{

"myvar1":"value1",

"myvar2":"value2"

}

NOTE: All special chars in the returned strings from the script are escaped ( e.g. the slash / character is translated to &#x27, so if you want to avoid that you need to in clude an & symbol before the variable name:

e.g.

{

"myvar1":"$$&key1$$",

"myvar2":"$$&key2$$"

}

Built-in variables

We provide the following Asterisk channels variables named

  • variable name + _STATUS_CODE: shows the HTTP request status code
  • variable name + _STATUS_MESSAGE: shows the HTTP request status message


Example: RESULT_STATUS_CODE
