Changing the Auto Attendant Audio File

You can customize your Auto Attendant messaging for any occasion or purpose by changing out an existing file within NextOS, using the Announcement Repository. For example, if your business is closing for a holiday, uploading a holiday greeting will deliver a better customer experience. Once your greeting has been created and saved to the system, you are welcome to change the greeting on your account by following the instructions below.
