What if a customer/agent misses a scheduled Outbound call?

An outbound call consists of a scheduled call and two retries (optional). If a customer/ agent misses a scheduled call, then the OBD will generate another call to the same customer after 3 minutes (this is configurable).

If both the retries fails then there are two possibilities:
  1. If it is a promotional call, then the customer’s phone number cannot be re-queued for the next 24 hours. 
  2. If it is a transnational call, then the customer’s phone number can be re-queued in the contact list again. 
However there is a upper cap on number of times it can be re-queued.
