IVR – Configure IVR using XML Editor | AT&T Office@Hand
Article #6985

Account Administrators can configure the IVR on the Office@Hand Online Account using the XML Editor. This tool assists in importing, exporting, and/or downloading sample IVR XML files.

Configure IVR using XML Editor

AT&T Office@Hand provides additional IVR tools to help you create and manage your IVR Menus. The Auto-Receptionist consists of 3 parts that help you configure your IVR: IVR Menus, IVR Editor, and Prompts Library.

Account Administrators can use the IVR tool to:

  • Configure IVR menus with the Visual IVR Editor
  • Import prompt recordings
  • Record prompts
  • Import and export XML files

Check IVR – Visual Editor Guide | AT&T Office@Hand to learn how you can set up your IVR using the Visual Editor instead.

Note: Any change in the IVR menu overwrites the imported XML file. It is suggested that you export and save a new XML file after making changes.
