The Greeting step in the Call Flow Builder allows you to play a recorded announcement to your callers. You can upload an MP3 file of a greeting you own or type in a message that CallRail will read to the caller in a friendly voice.
We recommend placing a few test calls from a telephone number that's not included within your call flow to ensure your calls are routing as expected once your call flow is assigned to a tracking number.
Once your call flow is set up, you'll assign it to the appropriate tracking numbers. You can assign the same call flow to multiple tracking numbers.
If you prefer to not use the Call Flow Builder, you can implement a greeting on your tracking number's "Edit" page.
