To use just follow the following simple steps.

1)      Write down your ID and Password. You will need this in order to authenticate yourself on the phone. To view you ID and Password click on “Recording Instructions” button in the voice tab, or you can click on the “Control Panel’ button and click on the Sound Tab.

2)      Create a query with all the phone numbers you want to send to. You can create multiple phone books for different messages (For example Elementary School, High School, etc.).

3)      Click on the “Upload Phone Book” button in the Voice tab. It will prompt you for a name for the Phonebook. Enter the Name and press OK. Write down the Phonebook ID number that’s returned. You will need it to select this Phonebook thru the phone.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have all phone books created. To look up your list of Phonebooks just press the “Control Panel” button and click on Phonebook.

 

Now you’re ready to send the voice message from any phone.

1) Call (845) 215-4195 or (845) 777-9099. When the IVR picks up dial 2.

2) Enter your UserID when prompted and press #. Confirm if correct.

3) Enter your Phonebook ID # when prompted and press #. Confirm if correct.

4) Enter the 10 digits of the Caller ID # you want displayed. Confirm if correct.

5) Press any key to start the recording. Press # when finished. Confirm if correct.

6) Press 1 to send the recording right away. Press 2 to enter a later time on the same day, press 3 to enter a different date and time. (Added 11/15/2020)

Wait for the response. If successful it will tell you the campaign ID.

7) You can enter another Phonebook ID # now.  It will send this same recording and caller id to this Phonebook too. Confirm if correct.

How close are you with this feature to set grouped queries like preschool, elementary, 1st grade, etc. And just choosing the group #. This way we don't need to keep uploading when changes occur.

Will now allow you to add another phone book id after the recording was setup. This will allow you to send the same recording to another phone book.

We added a second number to reach the voice recording menu due to high volume.

(845) 777-9099

Since this feature is made to use when you don't have access to your listings, would it be possible that system should list the "names" of the phone book's available?
commented Jan 30, 2023 by Admin
The security here is that nobody else know the numbers. Also the listing will not tell you what is on the list. Just save the info to your phone in contacts.
commented Jan 30, 2023 by Kasho
For security there is a ID and Password,

The listening will give the option to save the name on what it includes, For example I will name the phone book as: all phone numbers for 8 AM Route.

There is no password.
