The Time-of-Day routing allows the routing of calls to the same E.164 Destination Code via different routes depending on the time of day and the day of the week.
The Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony administrator can create Time-of-Day destinations and use them in the E.164 code table as destinations. A Time- of-day destination can have one or more day schedules (for example, a weekday schedule, a weekend schedule, and a holiday schedule) with each day of the week being associated with its own schedule.
Time-of-Day based routing allows routing calls to E.164 Destination Codes via different routes depending on the time of day and the day of the week. the subscriber can create Time Destinations and use them in E.164 Codes as destinations. A Time Destination can have one or more day schedules (for example, weekday schedule, weekend schedule and holiday schedule), with each day of the week associated with a day schedule.
Once the subscriber has created Time Destinations, the subscriber can assign these Time Destinations to Telephony Control Server Assistant E.164 Codes, in order to specify the E.164 DN (Directory Number) Code with which to associate each Time Destination.
After creating a Time Destination, the subscriber must create at least one day schedule. Then, the subscriber adds at least one period schedule to each existing Day Schedule. Finally, the Day Schedule(s) the subscriber has created are assigned to each day of the week in the subscriber Weekly Schedule for the Time Destination.
If the subscriber saves the Time Destination record without assigning a valid day schedule to each day of the week, the system displays an error message indicating that the Time Destination record is incomplete and cannot yet be used in an E.164 Code record.
When creating a new Time Destination, the subscriber needs to assign at least one day schedule in its weekly schedule. A day schedule may comprise of one or more Time Periods. The day schedule is considered to be complete if every minute of the day belongs to exactly one Time Period. Time Periods of a day schedule must not overlap.
