  • The Multi-Level IVR (also known as Auto-Attendant) is an extended automated phone menu that gives you full control over how calls are routed to ensure your business needs are met. It efficiently connects callers to individuals, call queues, or locations within an organization, based on their selections from menus.
  • Multi-Level IVR is an optional alternative to Auto-Receptionist that provides more powerful options to route incoming calls. Multi-Level IVR gives you flexibility to create a structured, multiple-layer phone routing menu. You can route the calls to any extension (e.g. user, group, or another IVR menu), a voicemail, or to an external number. It is ideal for multiple locations under one account. 
  • Yes, this feature supports nested menus.  There is virtually no limitation to the number of layers, as long as the total number of IVR menus (including submenus) does not exceed 250.
  •   RingCentral offers IVR tools to configure and manage your phone menus, including an intuitive Visual IVR Editor. You can easily create and configure a graphical call routing flow based on the input of touch-tone keys.  
  • Using the IVR tool, you can record IVR prompts for your computer or via your phone. You can also use the text-to-speech option or upload IVR prompt recordings in MP3 or WAV formats. To enhance your company’s phone image, order custom, professional IVR prompts and other recordings for your system from our partner Snap Recordings.
  • It is available for the RingEX Premium and Ultimate editions.
