Auto Attendant Accounts
The auto attendant functions like a virtual receptionist, connecting incoming calls to extensions and other devices that have been configured to the system. The auto attendant often announces a company’s name, followed by a selection of dialing options. A typical welcome message might be “Thank you for calling Company ABC, “for Sales, press 1,” “for Accounts, press 2,” and “for the dial-by-name directory, press 4.” Callers press the number that corresponds with their selection and are directed accordingly.
