Getting started with the voice menu via My Rinkel on desktop.

Start by setting the preferences in the voice menu:

  1. Go to and log in with your username.

  2. Navigate to "numbers" within the main menu.

  3. Remember that call forwarding and the voice menu cannot be enabled at the same time. Activating the voice menu automatically disables call forwarding if it was set up.

  4. Click on "edit" in the voice menu.

  5. Select the recording that will serve as the welcome message in your menu, indicating actions like "press 1 for sales, press 2 to talk to marketing". It must be a previous recording detailing the options available to the customer.

  6. Choose the number of times you want the recording to repeat.

  7. Click on the number corresponding to each option (e.g., number 1) and choose the appropriate action for when the customer presses that key or none.

  8. Within each key, you can configure an additional recording, for example, a thank you message before transferring the call to an agent. Make these recordings in the 'recordings' menu.

  9. Decide whom to transfer the call to or if you prefer to send the user to voicemail. If you choose voicemail, just save the changes. In this example, we have sent the user to voicemail.

  10. If you opt to transfer the call, configure the specific transfer for that key, including options for a waiting queue or what to do if no one responds.

  11. Save the changes to finalize the configuration of your voice menu.
