It would be stellar if RingCentral gave us the ability to alter the number of times an IVR menu loops before either disconnecting the call or slipping over to a selected extension. It could just be a drop-down, or an open field.

Multi level IVR call handling generic key presses - Repeat 3 Times if caller enters no action.  Can we get an option for this to be just 1 time through the menu?  To wait for 3 times through is a pain.

Yes, absolutely agree, we're NOT happy with having such a delay before someone is either disconnected or transferred!!!

The number of times the IVR greeting prompt plays should be optional. Users should be able to customize the number of times they would like for the prompt to cycle.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Having the option to play the IVR greeting just once on a Multi-level menu.

We are medical facilities and need the option to play the IVR greeting just once for multi-level IVR menus, we have multiple federated sites and plan on rolling out more. We do not want people who might need immediate medical attention having to wait through that greeting 3 times if they do not hit anything(not choosing an option is heavily used unfortunately...)

This is totally an unacceptable option (or lack of option).  In our growing hands-free world, folks can't "press 2" from the car device and then have to wait 3 cycles before connecting to our receptionist.  Our clients are VERY unhappy with us, stating poor customer service, however our volume of calls requires us to use an IVR auto-attendant.  PLEASE get your company (as I intend) to make a lot of requests to update this feature.  I love the idea of a drop down menu of options (1, 2 or 3 cycles).  Alternately, voice commands would also be a great option.

I completely agree. If our clients can't reach us in a reasonable time frame, it makes us look uncaring and incompetent.

It is crucial that we have an option to shorten or eliminate unnecessary cycles.

I too would like to see this changed.  For the ease of our customers, we need a less onerous option.

Three cycles is just too many!

This seems like a no-brainer.  Different businesses have different needs and some will not want their customers to wait that long.  Ring Central has so much customization elsewhere.  They really need to give control to their customers on this issue.
