To start using the IVR callback function, you need to connect a VoIP phone number to your LiveAgent account. Once it’s connected you need to create an IVR script and upload IVR messages. To see a complete IVR set up guide, check out this article.
Next, you need to add the callback script to your IVR script by following this guide. When you’re done, click save and test the function by calling the phone number that is integrated with your LiveAgent account.
Listen to the IVR menu prompts, and press the requested keypad number (such as “Press 4 to request a callback).
