This module enables collecting name data. The module has two modes: first name and last name. To collect first and last name as distinct variables it is necessary to use two ‘Name’ () modules, one for each piece of data. This functionality is similar to the Date/Time () and Address () modules.
The 'Name' () module uses the ‘name grammar’ to parse out names. This grammar recognizes about 90% of the most common first and last names in the USA. Some names may not be recognized. No transcription is necessary.
This setting allows callers to interrupt a prompt before it finishes playing. When enabled, DTMF input interrupts the prompt and progresses the call forward in the call-flow. If speech recognition is enabled on the ensuing module in the call-flow, then end-users can also interrupt the prompt with a spoken utterance, too. Disabling barge-in forces callers to listen to the entire prompt. A barge-in enabled module will have a dashed line on top of the text box. See example here.
This setting controls the logging function of a module. Enabling the 'Private' setting instructs the module to not record, report, or retain the information input to that module for reporting or any other purposes. When enabled any information entered into a module during a call will be lost immediately when the call terminates. The 'Private' setting is critical for businesses that need to maintain PCI-DSS or HIPAA compliance. The module icon, in the upper left-hand corner, becomes grayed-out when this setting is enabled. See more details here.
Enabling this setting overrides the default, global error options set in the Application Settings > User Input Settings. This allows users to establish custom error handling in order to act on errors in a specific way in that module. Instead of progressing to the next module in the call-flow, custom error handling allows users to re-prompt the same module, to provide a custom error message, to re-direct the call based on the error, or any other desired behavior. Adding multiple errors () to a module functions behave the same way as a counter. The first error follows the path for the first error listed, if a second error occurs in the same module it follows the second listed error, and so on until all errors are exhausted or an error directs the end-user away from that module. No Input occurs when the caller does not provide an input based on the timeout settings. This is based on the “Initial input timeout” in User Input Settings No Match occurs when the caller input does not match the module's criteria for the input module.
Advanced Fuse users may want to use shadow variables that are available with input modules. For more information on this functionality, please visit the Shadow Variables page.
