Q&A Extensions will prompt callers to answer a series of questions that Grasshopper will then consolidate into one voicemail for you. This feature is typically used for lead generation and order taking when you can’t to allocate a human being for information collection.
How do Q&A Extensions work?
It’s easy! Just record a set of questions that you want your callers to answer. Your caller will answer a question, press #, then hear the next question. When the caller is finished answering your questions, we’ll consolidate all the answers into one voicemail for you.
How many Q&A Extensions can I have?
The sky is the limit! You can have as many Q&A Extensions as you need!
What is the maximum number of questions I can have on a Q&A Extension?
Q&A Extensions are identified by a 3-digit number, so technically you could have up to 999 questions on a Q&A Extension, but we don’t recommend that. We recommend sticking to around 10 or so questions.
