Configuring enforced disposition codes

Disposition codes describe the outcome of an interaction. The following list contains examples of possible disposition codes:

  • No answer
  • Sent documentation
  • Call again in 7 days
  • Wrong number

You can use disposition codes in various ways, such as reporting on agent or team activity, or ensuring that any further action relating to the interaction is taken.

How do I ensure that agents always provide a disposition code at the end of an interaction?

If the enforced disposition codes feature is enabled for your account, you can ensure that agents always provide a disposition code for an interaction. The feature prevents Vonage Contact Center from assigning the next interaction to an agent until the agent has provided a code for their previous interaction. In addition, agents can be prevented from making outbound interactions until they have provided a code.

To configure enforced disposition codes, add a new custom state. The new custom state must have the following settings:

Major stateDescriptionEnabled
Wrap UpLogging the callNo

Case sensitive

The new custom state—Logging the call—is case sensitive. You must enter the description exactly as shown for the enforced disposition codes feature to work.

Logging the call agent state

For information about adding custom states, see Configuring agent states.

Manually changing state

When the enforced disposition codes feature is enabled for your account, you can choose whether or not to allow your agents to manually change their state from Logging the call without setting a disposition code. For information about preventing agents from manually changing their state, see Controlling features for your account.

When you have correctly configured the enforced disposition codes feature, when an agent finishes handling an interaction—for example, by clicking Release in ContactPad, or when the agent or caller hangs up their phone—the agent's state in ContactPad changes to Logging the call. Vonage Contact Center cannot assign any interactions to the agent until the agent leaves the Logging the call state.

How do I enable the enforced disposition codes feature for an individual agent?

If enabled for your account, you can enable the enforced disposition codes at an agent level in User Admin. For information about enabling enforced disposition codes for agents, see How do I enable enforced disposition codes feature for an agent? in Configuring individual users.

How do I ensure that agents can set disposition codes for interactions?

If you have enforced disposition codes for your account or individual agents, agents must be able to provide them. Agents can add disposition codes in three ways, depending on which features are configured for your account:
