How to Set Up the Dial Directory


The Dial Directory routes calls to your team by prompting the caller to enter or say the person’s name they want to reach. If a Team has been set up with members, the caller dials using the keypress on the phone or can speak the name of the person they would like to reach. This feature can be used by saying the person’s first name, last name, or both first and last name. Note: If multiple people have the same first name, the system will prompt you for additional information (which is where you would want to speak/say the first and last name of the person you want to reach). The Dial Directory feature is available on the Contact Center plan.
