Note: Uploading a new Audio File does not automatically override an existing audio file that is currently in use. The new audio file must be selected in the corresponding area of your phone system before it will become active. Please see the Audio File Types Explained part of this guide to see how to select your audio file in the proper area.

Note: Recording a new Audio File does not automatically override an existing audio file that is currently in use. The new audio file must be selected in the corresponding area of your phone system before it will become active. Please see the Audio File Types Explained part of this guide to see how to select your audio file in the proper area.

 

When testing these changes, you must dial your Talkroute Phone Number from a phone number that is NOT listed as a Forwarding Phone Number. If you attempt to call your Talkroute Phone Number from a Forwarding Phone Number, the call will disconnect or outbound dialing will be initiated (if enabled).
