iView Operator Console (v2.0)  Overview 

iView is an easy-to-use Operator Console for managing phone calls in your PBX directly from your desktop via Intuitive Voice Technology’s Evolution PBX software. iView utilizes java architecture enabling it to run on multiple platforms (e.g., Windows, Linux, Mac) and can be added to any new or existing Evolution PBX installation. In addition, iView provides full support for SIP, IAX, and ZAP.

iView provides a flexible interface that does not need to be tied to any one location. Any of your operators can see all the extensions within your organization and monitor the availability of your personnel from any location. This enables your operators to see all incoming calls, calls on hold and parked calls as well as the status of all users in your company allowing you to effectively and efficiently manage your resources via iView’s intuitive drag and drop user interface.

iView allows for granular control over every profile and the actions that they can perform. All permissions are Profile / Object based where an "Object" is the profile's local extension, a remote extension, the parking lot, a queue or a conference room. For example you can specify what actions profile "John" can perform on queue "Main

Queue".

There are three different tiers of permissions. Default, Group, and Override.

Default Permissions 

Default permissions are permissions that are used system wide if no other permissions have been specified. These will usually specify the permissions that the majority of the users will be given.

Note: Default permissions can be overridden by group permissions and group permissions can be overridden by override permissions.

2. In the Default Permissions area, click Modify Default Permissions and the Default Permissions window displays.

The iView Client Environment  Windows 

iView has many features which are organized into several different sections, or windows of the application. Each window has its respective properties which aides in displaying the information to the end user.

Layout 

Windows within iView can be:

• Moved around by clicking and dragging the window tab to another location within the panel.

• Resized by clicking and dragging window edges.

• Maximized by double clicking the tab (This will place all other windows in a Fast View). Double click the tab again to normalize the window.

• Detached from the main panel by right clicking on the window tab and selecting detach.

• Placed in a Fast View use the minimize button for that window.

• Accessed in a Fast View; click the window icon in the Fast View bar. To close the window, click the icon again.

Fast Views 

Fast Views allow you to minimize a window into an icon for quick retrieval. Once a window is minimized, it will shrink into a single icon.

Queues Remote Extensions

Held Calls Parked Calls

Extension Directories Local Extensions

Conference Rooms Profile Navigator

These icons can then be grouped together and moved to all four sides of the iView application.

(29)

Furthermore, you can restore a window from a Fast View into a normal window by dragging the icon to the location you prefer. Before letting go of the mouse button you will see an outline where the window will be placed. Move it around until you’re pleased with the location.

Profile Navigator 

The Profile Navigator allows users to control their profiles from a single window. A subsequent tree item will be displayed for each profile that exists on that client. Each window will have the profile name appended to it so the user can differentiate between two of the same types of windows. The Profile Navigator provides seven separate components:

• Local Extensions

• Remote Extensions

• Held Calls

• Parked Calls

• Queues

• Conference Rooms

• Extension Directories

Local Extensions 

The local extensions window shows all extensions that your current profile uses.

Available local extension options include: Cellphone, Voicemail, Login Agent, Hold, Park, Record and Hangup.

Note: Hold, Park, Record and Hangup are only available when a call is active.
