As restarting services when using Chonicall Mulitimedia can be more service affecting, please review the following notes and procedure.
If there are calls in the skill groups queue, understand that stopping the Chronicall Multmedia services on the Multimedia Server would drop those calls immediately. To ensure a better experience for your callers, you are encouraged to:
- Plug the Queue
This prevents any new calls from entering the skill groups without dropping the existing calls
This is done by logging into Chronicall as an administrator and navigating to:
Admin►System Settings►Multimedia Voice Seat►Queue is Plugged. Set this value to "True" and save.
*IMPORTANT - You will need to set this setting back to "False" when services have been restored.
- Empty the Queue
Now that the queue is plugged, you may allow the queue to empty automatically (if working) or you may transfer the calls out of the queue manually.
This is done by navigating to Realtime Displays►Group Timeline►Selecting the Skill Group from the drop down menu located in the top left corner►selecting the "Queued Calls" tab
Right Click on the box for a queued call and select "Transfer to". Then select the extension you would like to transfer that call to.
Continue until all calls are cleared from the skill group. If any are not transferring to an available agent, they may be a ghost call which can be disregarded and removed with the restart.
- Proper Restart Order
First, while on the Multimedia Server, STOP the Chronicall Multimedia service.
1- Open the Start menu and type services.msc into the search bar. A listing for Services should appear at the top of the list, click on it.
2- Search through the list to find the services named ChronicallMultimedia
3- Right-click on the related service and choose Stop.
1- While logged into root access, enter "service ChronicallMultimedia stop"
Next, restart Chronicall Services on the Chronicall Server:

2-Search through the list to find the services named Chronicall or ChronicallServer
3- Right-click on the related service and choose Restart.

Finally, restart the Multimedia services on the Multimedia server:

After the above services have been restarted, you are encouraged to unplug the queue before preforming test calls to ensure proper routing.
Note: your agents will likely need to log into their Chronicall Desktops again before receiving phone calls form the skill groups. If the agents cannot make themselves available because they are not logged into any skill groups, please review this article to learn how to manually enable them for skill groups.
