Add Translation Rule Page

To find this page, select System Configuration > Call Configuration > Auto Attend Translation Configuration > Add New.


Table: Field Reference: Add Translation Rule Page and Edit Translation Rule Page
Field Description

Description

Enter information to help you and other system administrators understand the translation rule.


Example: Converts a 7-digit number to a 5-digit extension.

Digits to match

Number of digits that must be in the incoming ANI (1) in order for this rule to be applied.


Example: Suppose this field is set to 5:

  • If the ANI is 50123, the system applies this rule.
  • If the ANI is 0123 or 5550123, the system does not apply this rule.


Recommendation: The ANI can vary depending on whether calls are received from internal, external, long distance, or international sources. Use a large enough value to preserve uniqueness for ANI matches. We recommend a value of 4 or 5.


Restriction: You cannot modify the preconfigured translation rule, in which this field is set to 0. The system uses the preconfigured translation rule to find a user profile phone number that matches the incoming ANI exactly without adding or deleting any digits.

Match string

Apply this rule if this string matches the beginning of the ANI digits.


This string is removed from the ANI.


Example: If this field is set to 555, and the ANI is 5550123, remove the 555 to make the modified ANI equal to 0123.

Replace by

Insert these digits at the beginning of the ANI.


Example: If this field is set to 5 and the ANI is 0123, the ANI becomes 50123.



Footnote 1: ANI = automatic number ID, or the phone number from which the user called.

Add User Group Page

To find this page, select User Configuration > User Groups > Add New.


Note: Most user group fields are identical to user profile fields. Therefore, Table: Field Reference: Add User Group Page and Edit User Group Page describes only the fields that are specific to user groups. For descriptions of all other user group fields, see Table: Field Reference: Add User Profile Page and Edit User Profile Page.


Table: Field Reference: Add User Group Page and Edit User Group Page
Field Description

Name

Name by which you want to identify the user group.


Recommendation: Use a name that describes the users in the group, such as "Marketing."


Restriction: Unicode is not supported.

Number

Number used to identify this user group.

Phone number for non-direct-dial pagers

Shared phone number for a non-direct-dial pager system. (1)


PIN numbers to access individual pagers are configured in the Pager number field in individual user profiles.


Restrictions:

  • This field applies only to users whose individual user profiles are configured with a non-direct-dial pager PIN number in the Pager type field.
  • Only these characters are used to call the pager: 0-9, #, and *.
All other characters are ignored by the system but generate INFO events in the system log.
Video Preferences

Available video types

Video type that is made available as the group default in the Video Preferences section of the Add User Profile Page. This group default can be inherited by a user profile.


Restriction: If Video usage is set to Can attend + host video meetings, the fields in the Video Preferences section are available.

Selected video type details

Details about the selected video type including the name, codec type, and bit rates.

All other user group fields are described in Table: Field Reference: Add User Profile Page and Edit User Profile Page.



Footnote 1: The required format for phone numbers is determined by the call-control device for your IP telephony network. Therefore, enter phone numbers in the same format used to dial similar numbers from a phone on the same IP telephony network as Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. For example, if calls within your company are made by dialing the last four digits of a phone number, enter only the last four digits in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for internal phone numbers. If, however, you want Cisco Unified MeetingPlace to call a phone in a different area code, you might need to include 91 and the complete phone number including the area code.

Reference Information about User Profile Fields


About User Types

The Type of user field in each user profile determines the user privileges and capabilities in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. See Table: Types of Users.


Table: Types of Users
Type of user Description

End user

  • Can schedule and control meetings, attend meetings to which they have been invited, attend any publicly listed meeting, and modify preferences in their own user profiles.
  • Cannot access the Administration Center or MeetingPlace Conference Manager.

Delegate

  • Can view, reschedule, end, or delete meetings on behalf of users whose user profiles specify that delegate in the User ID of delegate field.
  • Can change the permissions of invitees for meetings owned by users whose user profiles specify that delegate in the User ID of delegate field.
  • Cannot schedule meetings on behalf of other users, even those whose user profiles specify that delegate in the User ID of delegate field.
  • Cannot access the Administration Center or MeetingPlace Conference Manager.

Note: (Microsoft Outlook front-end integration) Specifying the User ID of delegate in a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile does not automatically enable Microsoft Outlook delegation. You need to separately add assign delegates from the Microsoft Outlook client. For details see Prerequisites for Scheduling From Microsoft Outlook in the Enabling Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Scheduling from Microsoft Outlook.

Attendant

System administrator

  • Can join any meeting, even if the maximum number of ports per meeting are in use, as long as floater ports are available. Can join password-protected meetings without the meeting password, even if uninvited.
  • Can view, schedule, reschedule, end, and delete meetings on behalf of all users.
  • Has full access to the Administration Center.
  • Can download and use MeetingPlace Conference Manager.


Restriction: The preconfigured admin profile provides access only to the Administration Center on the Application Server. It does not provide access to the Web Administration on the Web Server.

About Time Zones

Each user profile has a Time zone setting. Things you should know about time zones in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace:

  • After you install Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.0, it assigns a special attribute to any scheduled meeting. This attribute is the time requested by the scheduler in their local time zone along with the time zone; for example, "12/10/2009 3:00 PM America/Los_Angeles."
When you perform a daylight saving or time zone (DST/TZ) update on the Application Server, meetings with this special attribute are automatically changed according to the new DST/TZ definition if the user profile of the scheduler is in the time zone that had the DST/TZ update.
However, meetings that were scheduled before you installed Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.0 do not have this attribute and are not automatically changed when you perform a DST/TZ update. The system sends email notifications for meetings that were originally scheduled through the Lotus Notes or Microsoft Outlook interface to the scheduler. The notifications inform the schedulers that their meetings are affected by DST and that they need to delete and reschedule the affected meetings. For meetings that are impacted by DST and that were originally scheduled through the web user portal or through MeetingPlace Conference Manager, the system sends an update notification to the scheduler and to all other invitees in the meeting.
Note that meetings scheduled by users configured to use "local time" are not updated (as described next).
  • Do not use the default "Local time of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server," which is configured during installation and can be modified at any time through the CLI of the Application Server. Instead, set this field to a specific time zone.
  • For each meeting, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace accepts and reports the start time in the time zone of the meeting scheduler.
  • All email notifications use the time zone of the meeting scheduler, even those that are sent to invitees in different time zones.
  • On the Find Meeting and Meeting Details pages in the web user portal, the meeting times appear in the time zone of the user who is signed into the web user portal.
  • All instances of recurring meetings take place at the same time of day in the time zone configured in the user profile of the meeting scheduler. Meeting invitees must adjust for time zone differences. Remember that some locations, such as Arizona, do not use daylight saving time.
  • You download time-zone tables from Cisco.com.
    • Load the Linux time-zone update on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application server so that correct times are sent in email notifications.
    • For clients running MeetingPlace Conference Manager, load the time-zone update provided by Sun Microsystems so that meeting times are displayed correctly in MeetingPlace Conference Manager after a time-zone rule change.
Note: After installing the time-zone updates on the Application Server, you must restart this server.

Add Video Terminal Profile Page

To find this page, select User Configuration > Video Terminal Profiles > Add New.


Table: Field Reference: Add Video Terminal Profile Page and Edit Video Terminal Profile Page
Field Description
Identification

Video terminal name

Name used in meeting participant lists and reports. For example, enter the name or location of the conference room that contains the video terminal.


Recommendation: Consider adding text that reflects the Method of attending field value, so that meeting schedulers can perform these actions:

  • If multiple video terminals are required for a meeting, the meeting scheduler might want to invite video terminals that have the same Method of attending.
  • If the Method of attending is set to Have terminal call in, the meeting scheduler might want to invite only video terminals and no users. Any users who are invited will also be dialed out when a meeting participant (with dial-out privileges) enters #33 in the TUI.


Restriction: At most, only the first 60 characters of the Video terminal name will appear on the scheduling page. Depending on the specific web browser and window size, even a smaller number of characters might appear. Therefore, make sure that you use concise video terminal names.

Endpoint E.164 number

Phone number (1) for the system to dial out to the video endpoint.


Restriction: Only these characters are allowed: (),-. and 0-9.

Group name

Name of user group to which this VTP (2) belongs.


Default: System

Email address

Where to send email notifications when this video terminal is invited to a meeting. Typically, you configure this field with the address of help desk staff or whoever is in charge of reserving the video terminal and conference room.


(Microsoft Outlook integration only) See Requirements for Inviting Video Terminal Profiles from Microsoft Outlook in the Configuring Endpoints for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace module.


For format requirements, see the Email address user profile field.

Region

See the Region user profile field.

Default: Other

Time zone

See the Time zone user profile field.


Default: Group default (Local time of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server)

Skip meeting entry voice prompts for dial-out calls

Whether this video terminal joins meetings directly without hearing voice prompts to record a name or enter a password.


Restriction: This field applies only when the Method of attending field is set to Dial out to terminal at meeting start.


Recommendation: Select Yes if any of these statements are true:


Default: Yes

Method of attending

The method by which this video terminal joins meetings:

  • (Recommended) Dial out to terminal at meeting start-System dials out to the video terminal at meeting start. Use this setting for Direct-to-Meeting Mode for Invited Terminals.
  • Have terminal call in-Video terminal can join meetings in any of the these ways:
    • (Recommended) Meeting owner dials out to all missing invitees by entering #33 in the TUI. Only meeting participants with dial-out privileges can perform this task. This is the Alternative to Direct-to-Meeting Mode for Invited Terminals.
    • User calls into the meeting from this video terminal.
    • Meeting participant dials out to the phone number (Endpoint E.164 number) of the video terminal. This can be performed from the web meeting room or by entering #31 in the TUI. Only meeting participants with dial-out privileges can perform this task.


Restriction: Some video terminals might not successfully negotiate video unless one of the recommended options are used.


Default: Have user call in

Video terminal codec

This option is available only when the Type of media server is set to Hardware Media Server.


Which codec to use when the video terminal dials directly in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, or when the system dials directly out to the video terminal:

  • H.261
  • H.263
  • H.264
  • Use default (H.264)


Restrictions:

  • The selected codec is not applied to calls that are transferred to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace from another phone. For transferred calls, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace uses the Video terminal codec in the VTP associated with the originally connected phone or terminal, not the terminal that is transferred.
  • H.261 is available only when a meeting is using the High Rate video type. If a meeting is using the Standard Rate video type and a video with Video terminal codec is set to H.261, this video terminal uses H.263 instead.


Default: H.264

Notifications

Can receive notifications

Whether to send email notifications to the Email address in this VTP.


Recommendations: Avoid changing this setting once Cisco Unified MeetingPlace is in use, because users might expect and rely on the current email notification behavior.


Default: Group default (Yes)

Receive attachments

Whether to include attachments in email notifications sent to the Email address in this VTP.


Default: Group default (No)



Footnote 1: The required format for phone numbers is determined by the call-control device for your IP telephony network. Therefore, enter phone numbers in the same format used to dial similar numbers from a phone on the same IP telephony network as Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. For example, if calls within your company are made by dialing the last four digits of a phone number, enter only the last four digits in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for internal phone numbers. If, however, you want Cisco Unified MeetingPlace to call a phone in a different area code, you might need to include a 9 and the complete phone number including the area code.

For details about these video formats and the user experience, see the Planning Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.

Video mode

Select a video mode from the list.


When the Type of media server is set to Express Media Server, these preconfigured video modes are available:

  • H.263
  • Mobile
  • Compatibility
  • High Quality
  • HD


When the Type of media server is set to Hardware Media Server, these preconfigured video modes are available:

  • Standard Rate
  • High Rate


Restrictions:

  • When the Type of media server is set to Express Media Server, use this page to add a new video type. You can modify only the video types that you add to the system. You cannot modify the preconfigured ones.
  • When the Type of media server is set to Hardware Media Server, you cannot modify preconfigured video types or create new video types.


Default:

Minimum bit rate (kbps)

The minimum video bit rate that will be assigned to meetings using the selected format. The minimum rate is determined by the Video mode selected.


This is used to prevent endpoints from establishing a video session with a low bit rate that could degrade the quality of the meeting. If the video endpoint cannot meet the minimum bit rate, the system treats it as an audio-only endpoint.


Default: depends on the Video mode selected

Maximum bit rate (kbps)

The maximum bit rate at which a video caller can connect to the system. The maximum rate is determined by the Video mode selected.


If you allocate more bandwidth, the user requires more SRUs.


Meeting participants cannot join at a rate higher than the value of this field. If a participant joins at a rate lower than the value of the maximum bit rate, the system retains the additional SRUs allowing additional participants to join the meeting.


Only signaled rates are taken into account. Flow-controlled bit rates are not taken into account. For example, if a meeting was scheduled with a maximum bit rate of 768 kbps, and a caller joins at that rate and the system later sets the flow to a lower rate, the unused capacity is not returned to the system.


Restriction: The maximum bandwidth of video calls can also be limited by the following settings, the lowest of which is enforced:


Default: depends on the Video mode selected

Note

Section for notes about this video; for example, under which conditions it should be used.


Restriction: This field is not available when the Type of media server is set to Hardware Media Server.


Default: Blank
