Setting up smrtPhone

After integrating smrtPhone and installing the extension, you can check out these guides on basic setup:

โš’๏ธ A simple setup of smrtPhoneIf you followed all of the prompts upon initial signup, you have likely already completed all of these steps. This article & video shows you around two crucial foundational elements of preparing your smrtPhone: Getting a phone number and how to configure your number to receive incoming calls.
๐Ÿ” Introduction to the Admin DashboardIn the left navigation there is an icon of three slider bars (โ‰ก) where you will have access to all of your Admin tools. This video and written catalog gives an overview of what each subsection of the admin dashboard controls.
โ˜Ž๏ธ How to Get and Manage Phone NumberssmrtPhone is a phone system, right? And, what do we need to use a phone system? Phone numbers! This guide will kick off everything you need to know about buying and managing your phone number portfolio.
๐Ÿšป How to Add UsersLearn how to bring your team into smrtPhone, whether they are full-time, part-time, consultants, or VAs. With smrtPhone Standard, you have 10 users included and can add more if needed. With smrtPhone Pro, you have unlimited users.
๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง How to Create Groups of UsersGroups is an amazing tool to assemble users in a way that streamlines operations and improves response rates. Typically we see groups created around functional expertise or departments. Don't forget to set up a voicemail inbox for each group you create!
๐Ÿ“ž Creating Incoming Call Flows

Determine where calls ring - Because smrtPhone is a cloud-based phone system, you have complete control over where calls to each phone number ring. They can ring to a user or a group, you can reroute them if no one answers, you can present an initial greeting or a full phone menu. You can even send them straight to voicemail - it's up to you! But, you have to tell the system how to handle them - and that's what Call Flows do. You can have many phone numbers follow the same Call Flow routing, or set each one up individually.๐Ÿšจ If you do not set them up, callers will not be able to reach you. ๐Ÿšจ

๐Ÿ’ฌ How to Send and Receive Text MessagesSimilar to Call Flows, if you don't set up an SMS text flow, you will not receive any messages sent to your numbers. You can also do some quick setup to be able to send text messages from directly within your CRM.
โš™๏ธ Account Settings OverviewLearn how to adjust the global settings for your account, such as time zone and call recordings.
