Customizing audio greetings and prompts Follow

You can use the Zoom Phone audio library to select. record, or upload custom audio for various extensions' audio greetings and prompts. These prompts are usually played before routing the call.

This article lists the custom audio you can customize for extensions in your account. Click the embedded links for more information.

Notes

  • You can also customize the default audio applied to extensions.
  • If you set an auto receptionist's, call queue's, or IVR's Voicemail Greeting when routing to another extension's voicemail, it will override the greeting set for that extension. If you're routing to a phone user's voicemail, select Follow User Voicemail Greeting in the drop-down menu to use the phone user's greeting instead of selecting a replacement.
