Managing Prompts

Prompts are audio files played at various points within the call process.

  • Greeting Prompt - A welcome message prompt to the callers (e.g. "Hello and thank you for calling ABC Company, where great customer service is our priority.”)

  • Waiting Prompt - Music plays when the customers or visitors wait for an agent to receive the calls.

  • Voicemail Prompt - A recording informing customers or visitors you are not available to receive the calls. It provides a 24-hour answering capability and ensures no customers slip through the cracks. Staff members can immediately follow up on missed enquiries based on the details left on the voicemail messages.

  • End Prompt - End greeting to be played before the end of the call.

You can manage prompts of each type with Add Prompt, Edit Prompt, Set as a default, Apply to all and Delete and use them in your Routing Rules.


The prompts added for different purposes like Greeting, Waiting, Voicemail and End can be used in the Virtual Number > Routing Settings. See our detailed Guide for more details.


To manage prompts, navigate to Administration > Prompt. You can click the Greeting Prompt, Waiting Prompt, Voicemail Prompt or End Prompt tab to manage your prompt.

Applying Prompts to all Prompt Settings
