User Intercept Announcement



Use Intercept Announcement

Edit a User's Intercept Announcement Settings



The Intercept Announcement feature plays a message when a user receives a call. When this setting is turned on, the call is intercepted and the specified messages are played to the caller. Use these announcements to provide call routing options along with other useful information.


Use Intercept Announcement


Intercept Announcement gives enterprises the ability to give callers useful information. The default announcement informs callers that the number they've called is out of service. Intercept Announcement can also give callers the user’s new phone number and enable users to press 0 to be transferred to a new number that you determine. As an Enterprise Administrators for the AT&T IP Flexible Reach Customer Portal, you can also record and upload custom announcements.


Note: When Intercept Announcement is turned on, users in the group cannot make outbound calls. Emergency calls and calls to other users in this enterprise are still allowed.


Edit a User's Intercept Announcement Settings


You can edit the intercept announcement settings for any user in your enterprise.


Note: When you change the settings for a group, you change the settings for every group user who doesn't have custom intercept announcement settings. User-level settings override group-level settings.
