One Talkā„  - View / Manage Automated Receptionist

Note Notes:

  • Incoming callers are presented with a greeting and a set of options to choose from (e.g., Press 1 for Sales, etc.) then routed to the selection made. Different options can be made available depending on the Schedule (Business Hours, After Hours, Holiday).
  • The # key is hard set to 'Transfer to Operator' to allow non-HD Voice (VoLTE) calls to be routed correctly. When configuring One Talk Automated Receptionist call routing, the 0 key must be changed to a different option other than 'Transfer to Operator' (Example: Customer wants 0 to transfer to an agent in the office. Change this key to 'Transfer without Prompt' and have the recording state "Press 0 for an operator").

The Automated Receptionist can be managed via the One Talk portal or the My Verizon for Business mobile app. Select an option to view instructions:
