What is a Call-Back Profile?

Call-Back Profiles can be found in the Fonolo Portal by going to MANAGE (1) > Call-Back Profiles (2).

Call-Back Profile is a collection of settings and configurations that define parameters for the calls that Fonolo receives and places for you. Once a client opts-in for a call-back, that call is transferred to Fonolo where we collect any necessary information, end the call, and then place a new call back to your Automatic Call Distributer (ACD). There are two types of calls that Fonolo places for you:

  • A call into the queue to hold a place in line for the Client, once a call-back request has been completed.
  • A call to the Client once an Agent has picked up and accepted Fonolo’s call-back by pressing DTMF 1 on their phone.

These calls are then bridged so that the Client can speak directly with the agent, and the Fonolo Call-back process is complete. Call-Back Profiles handle all of the configurations around these calls.

Of course, just knowing who to call is not enough. This is where Call-Back Profiles come into play. Call-Back Profiles define important variables such as:

  • The call-back channel (Voice Call-Backs, Web Call-Backs, Programmable Call-Backs) that these settings will be applied to.
  • Caller ID Name and Number displayed to the Client as well as to the Agent during the call-back
  • Geographical Restrictions of where Fonolo is allowed to call to prevent international numbers or long distance charges
  • The method that Fonolo uses to place the call-back (PSTN, SIP)
  • Any time and date restrictions that restrict when the callbacks can be placed to Clients
  • Any Pre-Call questions you have requested the Client to answer before opting in to the call-back.
