How To Create An Auto Attendant BT Cloud Voice

Stream - The digital backbone to your business

How do you create an auto-attendant on VoiceStream BT Cloud Voice?

First of all log in to the business portal and navigate to sites

Then click on the cog of the relevant site you want to amend

In the next screen you need to scroll down to the hunt group and auto-attendant section. Ideally with an auto attendant you want some call groups set-up before you create the auto attendant so the attendant can direct its options to the relevant group.

On the next screen choose the type of call distribution required and any other options required and click on save.

On the next screen we want to upload our autoattendant message e.g. press 1 for support, 2 for sales etc. You will need to prerecord you autoattendant message and convert into a .wav format and upload it from a PC or your mobile phone in this section.

On the next screen choose a number e.g. if support is 1 choose 1 for the first option and then choose transfer without prompt and enter the telephone number or extension of the hunt group you set-up earlier or enter an individual users extension number if this options just goes to one person. Click “submit” and your VoiceStream BT Cloud Voice auto-attendant set-up is completed.
