Setting up a Basic Dial Call Flow


WhatConverts now allows you to set up a call flow to grab more data from your incoming phone calls.

A Call Flow can help you manage how calls are routed for business hours, location of the caller, intentions of the caller (sales or support for example) and more. This document will show you the steps to setting up a Basic Dial Call Flow that will play a message for a caller, forward a call to a destination number and record a voice message if the call goes unanswered.
