FAQs

Is there a limit to the number of levels in IVRs?

No, Ringover’s modern IVR allows you to create as many sub-levels as you wish. However, take care to retain clarity and not overwhelm your callers.

Can I combine an IVR with other call routing rules?

Absolutely. You may, for example, put an IVR in place during certain hours and then specify call distribution. Direct transfer to a group or user, ringing in a predetermined order or simultaneously amongst other possibilities.

Can I find out how my callers are using the IVR?

Ringover’s modern IVR gives you access to reporting based on selections made by your callers. This will allow you to modify your IVR accordingly - for example, if certain keys are rarely or never pressed or if callers tend to drop off at certain points.
