Record Voice Message Window

In the pop up window complete the fields shown;

  1. The language, title and script fields are used by the system to help you identify the message in future. It is helpful if you write a brief script of what you will eventually record (please note, the text itself is not used to ‘create’ the message when you use the record function outlined below, however the text will be used to create the message if you don't record one. It will be read by a computerised voice at delivery time).
  2. Enter a phone number, where you can be reached at present, e.g. your mobile or direct dial phone number.
  3. Select the ‘Record Message’ button.

Below is a short video to show you what happens when you record a message - make sure you have audio enabled and the volume turned up!

 

  • You will shortly receive a phone call to the number you specified whereby you can record your message using an automated service.
  • You will hear a series of prompts to guide you through the process of recording your message. Once you are happy with the message you have recorded and have completed the call as prompted, hang up the phone.
  • This Video shows what happens when the automated system calls you to record the message.
  • When you have recorded the message, you can play it back, delete it and record a new message using the buttons on screen below the text box.
