TABLE OF CONTENTS
The IVR numbers page is used to set up IVR (Interactive Voice Response ) services in the system.
This is used to construct navigation menus that allow the calling party to use the phone to select to connect to different destinations. An IVR service consists of associating IVR logic with a phone number. The IVR logic consists of a voice prompt that plays out when a call arrives to the phone number and one or more forward destination numbers that the DTMF key input is associated with.
When the calling party presses a key on the phone after the voice prompt has been played the call will be forwarded to the phone number associated with this key.
The configuration page shows a list of already configured IVR function numbers.
