The basics of answer groups

Welcome to the 101, let's get started with the basics. 

There is different levels in the answer group, you can act as:

  • An agent
  • A supervisor

Included in your package

In the PBX-package you have active answer groups are included, check out how many depending on what kind you have. 

PBX-package Answer groups IVR Agents Supervisors
Mini 1 0 Unlimited Unlimited
Light 2 2 Unlimited Unlimited
Unlimited Unlimited Unlimited Unlimited Unlimited

In many cases it is more cost efficient to upgrade your PBX-package from Light to Unlimited instead of purchasing more answer groups or IVR menus.
