Announcement Repository

The Announcement Repository is a library for all of your recorded greetings and announcements. You can upload and record new announcements, share an announcement across multiple services, modify an announcement while it is still in use, or store extra announcements without assigning them to services.

Groups and Users each have their own Announcement Repository. The process for accessing and managing the Announcement Repository is the same for Groups and Users.

NOTE: You may upload video announcements if you have the free Video Messaging add-on enabled. Contact TPx to request this feature.
