Supported Script Types


Input Properties

These properties define data that the action uses when executing.



Add Caption

Enter a short phrase that uniquely identifies this action in the script. The caption appears on the script canvas under the action icon.


A pre-recorded audiot prompt filename. The audio file will be played to an agent to inform them that a new call has arrived. The default audio file is beep.wav.

Result Branch Conditions

Result branch conditions allow you to create branches in your script to handle different outcomes when an action executes.




Path taken unless the script meets a condition that requires it to take one of the other branches. It is also taken if the action's other branches are not defined.

Tips & Tricks

  • The Reqagent action has a property that is the same functionality as the Ziptone action. The Reqagent ziptone would play before call had connected to the agent, the Ziptone would play after the call had connected.
  • If you want a message to play simultaneously to both agents and callers, see the Whisper action.
