Also known as an IVR Menu.
In typical usage an Incoming Line is set according to a schedule to an Auto Attendant Menu Destination.
Once the Auto Attendant answers a call the caller is prompted to enter DTMF entries from their keypad.
Once the DTMF entry is matched then the Auto Attendant routes the call.
DTMF inter digit timeouts are used to prevent conflicts with single digit entries Vs. extension numbers.
An unlimited number of Auto Attendant menu objects can be created in the ScopTEL GUI.
Multiple languages are supported, including English, French, Spanish.
