Using Outcome Labels

Like the name suggests, Outcomes are essentially call results within your script. For example, General Message or Transferred Call are two Outcomes that can be used across many different accounts. However, you can create Outcomes that are more specific to your business, such as “Emergency Service” or “Calling for Steve Rogers.” 

In this article we'll discuss:

Creating Outcomes

1
To add Outcomes, go to your User icon in the upper right corner and click Settings

2
Then, on the left side under Scripts, select Outcomes.

3
Click the Add Outcome button as shown below.

4
In the pop-up window that appears on your page, you will be asked to fill in the Outcome followed by the Color and Description. For example, your Outcome could be “Emergency Service," your color could be Tomato, and your Description could be “The caller needs emergency service.”

5
When you are finished, click Save.

Adding Outcomes to your script

The following section includes instructions regarding script blocks. If you haven't already, check out this article for information on script blocks and their functions.
1
In order to add a particular Outcome to your script, click the Builder icon from the left-side navigation panel, and select Blocks.

2
In any of the Closing, Reach, or Cold Transfer blocks, go to the Options tab. Within that tab, you will see a dropdown list labeled Outcome, where all system-defined and custom Outcomes will be listed.

3
Select the Outcome you wish to use for that specific Block and click Save in the upper right corner.

4
If you want to create a new Outcome right on the spot, simply type your new Outcome into the text box and click Save to save the new Outcome into the existing list.

NOTE: After adding an Outcome directly via the Block you're editing, don't forget to click Save in the upper right corner to change the Block's Outcome.

Editing or Removing Outcomes

If you are no longer using a particular Outcome, you can delete it by clicking on the 3-dot menu icon on the right side of the Outcomes menu page. This is also where you can edit your Outcome details, if needed.

You cannot edit or remove any pre-set Outcomes within the system. You are only able to edit or remove the Outcomes you create.

Pre-set Outcomes Within the System

While you are able to create your own Outcomes, the system comes with a number of pre-programmed Outcomes that can be applied to calls accordingly. These Outcomes include:

  • Account Owner Calling: The owner of the SAS account called their own line.
  • Answered Question: Caller request was completed without data required.
  • Automated Call: Operator received an automated recording after answering.
  • Default: The default Outcome will be used if none are selected, or if the script is closed without being saved. Note that it just says "Default." 
  • Fax Machine: Operator received a fax tone after answering.
  • Information Only: Operator was able to answer the caller’s questions using FAQs and did not need to take a message.
  • IVR Disconnect: The line disconnected before reaching an end point.
  • Message Ticket: No scripted paths applied based off the caller’s query, so a basic message was sent.
  • No Caller / Dead Air: The line disconnected before an operator could answer.
  • Prank Call: Rude, inappropriate or obscene caller.
  • Refused Message: Caller refused to leave a message.
  • Telemarketer: Operator received an automated or live telemarketing call.
  • Test Call: Call was made to test script and/or phone line.
  • Wrong Number: Caller dialed the wrong business.
