From VoIP.ms Wiki
The Sequence feature is often used with automated door's systems or basically in any scenario where you need to excecute specific steps one after the other.
Important: A sequence can only be used as an IVR option, it is not possible to route a DID directly to a sequence's entry
A Sequence can contain any number of the following steps type in any order:
Creating a Sequence entry
To create a Sequence entry you simply need to go from your customer portal to: DID numbers >> Sequences
Once there, click " + Add Sequence ", a popup window will appear with the following options:
- Name: Set a name for your call Sequence's entry
- "Add Step": Click to add a Step, you can add as many as you need.
- Action: You can move up, down or delete a step
Adding a DTMF step
This option will play the specified DTMF digits to the caller.
When you add a step and select DTMF at "Parameter(s)" you can set a specific number that will be send as DTMF (tones), for example if you set "1234" the system will send signals as if you were dialed 1,2,3,4.
Adding a Recording step
This will play any specific recording you have previously uploaded to at your Recordings section in your account
Once you select "Recording" as the step's type, the "Parameter(s)" field will display a drop down list with the recordings you currently have in your account.
Adding a SMS step
This will instruct the system to send a SMS to a specific number. You will need to have a DID with SMS enabled and to set a local 10 digit number as receiver (local Canada or USA number) All the SMS limitations also apply for this.
In order to use this option as step, you will need to select a SMS compatible DID from the list from, you need to set the receiving number in the TO and the message in the message text field
