Playing a message for your caller after they hear a ring can be an excellent chance for engagement.
It can be used as a branding opportunity to buy time and keep things interesting before the call connects.
How to Use the Greeting Applet
The Greeting Applet is found in the Call Flow Builder. It is flexible, depending on your needs and your imagination.
There are three common ways to use the Greeting Applet:
First in a call flow
Example: Thank you for calling! Please note that calls may be monitored and recorded for training purposes. Then, if a Dial Applet is in place, it will ring the assigned User or Team.
As a selection in an IVR phone menu
Example: Press 1 to hear the location and hours, and the greeting plays the location and hours information
Upon no answer in a Dial Applet
Example: Please hold while we attempt to contact your party, and then another Dial Applet
