Managing application-level Response Group settings in Skype for Business

Managing application-level Response Group settings, such as music-on-hold and ringback settings, in Skype for Business Server Enterprise Voice.

Application-level settings for Response Group application include the default music-on-hold configuration, the default music-on-hold audio file, the agent ringback grace period, and the call context configuration. You can define only one set of application-level settings per pool. To view application-level settings, use the Get-CsRgsConfiguration cmdlet. To modify the application-level settings, use the Set-CsRgsConfiguration cmdlet.

The default music on hold is played when a call is placed on hold only if no custom music on hold is defined. Call context is available only for queues assigned to interactive workflows. If call context is enabled, an agent can see information such as caller wait time or workflow questions and answers when the call is received.

To modify Response Group application-level settings

  1. Log on as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, or as a member of one of the predefined administrative roles that support Response Group.

  2. Start the Skype for Business Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Skype for Business 2015, and then click Skype for Business Server Management Shell.

  3. At the command line, run:

    Set-CsRgsConfiguration -Identity <name of service hosting Response Group> [-AgentRingbackGracePeriod <# seconds until call returns to agent after declined>] [-DefaultMusicOnHoldFile <audio file>] [-DisableCallContext <$true | $false>]

    For example:

    Set-CsRgsConfiguration -Identity "" -AgentRingbackGracePeriod 30 -DisableCallContext $false

    To specify an audio file to use as the default music on hold, you need to import the audio file first. For example:

    $x = Import-CsRgsAudioFile -Identity "" -FileName "MusicWhileYouWait.wav" -Content (Get-Content C:\Media\ MusicWhileYouWait.wav -Encoding byte -ReadCount 0)
    Set-CsRgsConfiguration -Identity "" -DefaultMusicOnHoldFile <$x>
