Technical requirements for calls:
- The bandwidth required for one phone call is 160 kbit/s (80 up and 80 down). To get the best user experience from Callcenter web UI you would need much more bandwidth than just for calls. For example we would suggest at least 20 Mbit per 10 agents.
- Calls are recorded using GSM codec at 13 kbit/s
Calls are stored in WAV file format on our server. They can be listened from SAP ContactCenter WebUI and for downloading you can use the workstation %temp% folder or we could create custom solutions according to the exact needs.
Technical overviews about compatible devices and software versions (Compatibility lists):
Appearance of User Interfaces in Internet Explorer
Settings in Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer affect the appearance of IE applications such as CDT, Online Monitoring, and Reporting. If the UI does not appear as it should, for example, the screen is displayed only partially, or the menu bar is missing, check the following or corresponding settings:
- Theme: Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization -> Theme: We recommend using the Windows Basic or Windows Classic theme.
- Size of text: Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Display: Size of text Use the default settings (the option Smaller), or in Set custom text size (DPI) use 100 % of the normal size, that refers to 96 DPI.
- IE text size: Choose Tools -> Zoom and 100%. Alternatively, to adjust the text size, place the cursor on the application UI, press CTRL and scroll with the mouse scroll button, or press CTRL and plus (+) or minus (-) keys.
- Tabbed browsing: If you use tabbed browsing, choose in Tools-> Internet Options -> Tabs -> Settings either the option Always open pop-ups in a new window or Let Internet Explorer decide how pop-ups should open. Do NOT use the option Always open pop-ups in a new tab.

Agent can’t hear the customer or/and customer can’t hear agent- there is an one-way audio in a call conversation?
- Ask colleagues if they have the same problem with calls, using SAP CCtr. If most of users have the same situation, please contact your phone service provider (if it is not also us) and send us a detailed description of the issue and add log files from one workstation. The cause may be equally in our or in phone service provider responsibility.
- Check if your microphone/headset and audio devices are working and not muted. Additionally please check if the SAP CCtr audio and microphone volume is not set to too low level. It is recommended to keep volume level in the middle of volume bars (please see the picture below for the explanation).
Phone call audio is bad and you hear the robot voice?
The cause of a robot voice might hidden in the office network. Technically speaking, the probable cause of a situation is a packet loss, the overload of the connection. Please ask your IT department to check the network connection settings and quality. While the situation continues, send detailed info and workstation log files to our Support.
Your customer is agree with automatic recording of all their calls in SAP CCtr and you need to get audio file from SAP Contact Center, to listen it outside the SAP system?
How to get the file?
Recording file can be copied after you have listened it in CDT first:
- Listen the file in CDT (opening it from Online Monitoring or from History view in CDT).
- After the file is played, open File Explorer window and type “%temp%” to address field or go C:\Users\’your_user_name’\AppData\Local\Temp.
- Copy the latest audiofile. The file name is changed to range of letters and numbers for security reasons (it seems like – FF74B6EC4F28E81180C6062922B38F2F).
Other option to get the file is to write our customer support an email firstname.lastname@example.org, sending us the call’s A and B numbers, timestamp and we’ll send it to you.
After login to SAP CCtr system the agent is not able to answer contacts.
Steps to check
- Please check if the user is active, using the “Available” profile
- Please check if the user is in “Ready” mode
- Please check if the user has logged into all necessary queues
If everything is as shown on screens, but user still unable to get active incoming contacts, please contact our customer support by email email@example.com.
You start to open the CCtr CDT window as usually and the error “An error has occurred, please restart your workstation” jumps up.
This error means that SAP Contact Center installation has not finished properly, there is a need to open Internet Explorer with using administrator account.
Please contact your IT department to help you, but if the problem occurs, write to our Support team. (firstname.lastname@example.org).
While you use MTD functionality in SAP Contact Center system, you have desktop phone on your desk.
If the desktop phone is silent (no tone for calling out) and if nobody can’t reach you (phone is not ringing), check next steps for help:
- Restart your phone, by removing internet or/and power cable and put back to the right port.
- If no help, use another wall outlet of internet cable, it means, try to change the physical location of a phone.
If it helps to solve the case, probably your office network parameters has changed. For example the IP address has been changed recently. If it is so, please send us your new IP address, by contacting our support team. To find your computer’s extrernal IP address, please use this link.
- If the phone has picture on screen and tone while you pick-up the handset, but won’t ring if someone calls and always replies with Busy tone for caller, then most probably the reason is that you have forgotten or activated by mistake the DND (Do Not Disturb) function from your desktop phone. Please check if you can see the DND icon on the screen of the phone. Unfortunately different models have different instructions for deactivating of DND, so try to use menu buttons of a phone and try to find the right place :).
- If those three suggestions won’t help, the cause may be in Phone Service Operator network. Please contact your Phone operator and also contact our customer support by email email@example.com.
After launching CDT (Communication Desktop), the application is getting the error:
“The SAP Contact Center workstation components missing; Install the latest 7.0 version”
This website wants to install the following add-on: “SAP Contact Center Terminal” from “SAP Labs Finland Ltd.”.
Most likely this is caused by either:
- a changed in the Internet Explorer settings or
- someone has manually installed the terminal components
- Ensure that there has been no changes to the workstation (e.g manually installing the terminal components).
- Ensure your IT has not sent down a new Group Policy to change, that would revert the IE settings to enable optimum operation of the client components, and if so, please make adjustments accordingly to avoid this from happening.
CDT starts using cache files from older configuration.
- Clear IE browser cache and delete manually all files under “Temporary Internet files” folder. To clear IE cache, open Internet Explorer and use hotkey combination “Ctrl + Shift + Delete”. Check options “Temporary Internet Files” and “Cookies”, and click to “Delete”.
- If this does not work, then write to our Support team. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

The call is processed according to the presence management if there is no answer. For example, the call can be forwarded to the user’s mobile phone, if the user has activated such a profile.Only the blind transfer method can be used in conference calls. You can transfer a conference call in the following cases:
- You have selected one call to be Private.

- Another queue
- Warm transfer
You wait for the person to answer before you transfer the call. The first call is on hold when you make the second call. If the second call is answered, you can connect the calls. If there is no answer, you retrieve the call that has been on hold.
Enter the number of the second party into the destination field.
- Click the Transfer button or use a shortcut key. The call is cleared from your contact list.

MTD is a function that allows you to define multiple terminal audio devices for receiving inbound calls and one device when making outbound calls using CDT. Note that the MTD device is used as an audio device only.
The MTD function can be used with:

- A call arrives to a queue and is accepted by the system.
- The call is then allocated to an agent which indicates in their CDT and IP desk phone.
- The agent answers the call using the IP desk phone, and the call is then connected with the customer call.
In this example, the call control stays in CDT and the IP desk phone is used only as an audio device and not as an IP desk phone.
Use Case Example 2
A marketing agent is working from home with a VPN connection to the corporate network. Because the data line is too limited for audio, the agent uses mobile phone as an audio device instead.
- The agent enters the customer number into the CDT number field and clicks the Call button.SAP Contact Center creates two call legs. The first call is to the agent’s mobile phone and the second call to the customer.
- The agent picks the first call from the mobile phone.The first and the second call are connected, and the agent is able to use the mobile phone as the audio device.

Desk Phone – While you use Desk Phone with CDT, please add here the number of it. Mobile – While you use the mobile phone for calls in CDT, please add here the number of it. Other Number – Please do not use this value if our support hasn’t told to do so.
