Where to Configure Sounds
Groups: In the Groups section, you can choose recordings for waiting message and periodic announcement.
Waiting message - this is what your callers hear when they're waiting on the line. You can select either default music (by CT), default ringing or a sound of your own choosing.
Periodic announcement - this is what your callers hear at regular intervals while waiting on the line. For example, “Thank you for holding, your call is important to us" message is played approx. each 40-60 seconds.
Important notice: If default ringing is selected as a waiting message, the periodic announcement feature will not work.
2. Numbers/Call Flow: Different sounds and greetings can be selected in the call flow when using Playback and IVR actions.
Playback - using the Playback action allows you to choose a recording which will be automatically played to your customers when calling.
IVR (Interactive Voice Response) - customized IVR menu messages provide the caller with relevant information, such as which number to press for Customer Support, Sales, Human Resources, etc.
3. Business hours: You can set up the Sound which will be played to callers outside of business hours. Business hours can be found in Account > Settings > Business hours or Numbers > (edit) > Call number settings > Configure business hours.
