PhoneWagon's new call flows allows you to create IVR menus with Call Flows built in. You can easily view the options for the caller and where they will be routed based on that selection. You can now Route to Seats, Saved Forwarding lines, build in Sequential flows and so much more. Check below for how to begin creating an IVR menu!

  1. Click Call Flows on the Left menu.

2. Click Add Call Flow in the top right then select the Company you want to associate the call flow with.

3. You can then start the IVR menu through 2 ways. Starting with a blank flow and selecting IVR as your first step, OR skip the extra click by selecting the IVR (Menu) template.

4. Click into each Box to set up which numbers you want to add the Call Flow to.
