On-call schedule

For companies that offer on call services to their customers it is quite a hassle to configure an on call schedule in their PBX. A bot with the Oncall dialer skill installed solves this issue quite easily.

After installing the skill you can simple add the node "Dial: On Call" to your flow and configure your agents and planning in the Content section of the platform. Using this approach even users without the right to edit your flows can change the On call schedule of your agents.
