Questions – Context-Call

Assume there is a system that allows you to share Information about your availability with potential

callers. The caller gets this information when he/she tries to call you and has the choice to proceed with

the call, to leave you a message or to cancel the call.

To specify the willingness to receive calls we use the traffic light metaphor. For your availability you can

set your phone either to:

 

GREEN “I am available and happy to receive your call”

YELLOW “I am busy – still you can call me, but I expect you to have a god reason for interrupting me!”

RED “please do not call me now! Nevertheless you can call me if it is an emergency!”

 

1) Consider the following situations – how would you react?

You want to ask one of your colleagues if she joins you for a drink after work.

Her phone is set to yellow.

  • call anyway
  • leave a message
  • cancel the call/call later

You realise that your partner took the file with the wrong prices for his meeting with the clients – you

want to reach him immediately!

His phone is set to red.

  • call anyway
  • leave a message
  • cancel the call/call later

  • Yes
  • Yes, sometimes

3) Would you like to use such a system as the potential receiver of a call?

  • Yes
  • Yes, sometimes
  • No

3) Would you be willing to provide the information (e.g. setting the traffic light)?

  • Yes
  • Yes, if it is easy Only if the phone does it automatically
  • No

4) Do you think it is useful to have the ability to provide more information to callers – even if it makes it more

complicated?

  • Yes, short texts (e.g. meeting, at-home, busy, free, at-a-customer, …)
  • Yes, selective information (e.g. different messages for different people)
  • Yes, but only if it makes the phone not more complicated (e.g. information automatically generated)
  • No – GREEN, YELLOW, RED is sufficient
