Customizing the Unsuccessful Queue Callback Message


Once you activate the Queue Callback feature, we recommend that you customize the message callers hear once they have requested a callback from the queue.

You should also specify a greeting that prompts the caller to leave a voicemail or call back at another time, when they get a callback but are not connected to any agent. This allows you to provide a better experience when all agents go offline and are unable to take the callback, by letting callers know why they should leave a voicemail or call back tomorrow (or at another time), instead of just hearing the regular voicemail greeting.

To configure the "Unsuccessful Queue Callback Message" follow these instructions:


  • Log into your Talkdesk account as an administrator.
  • Click the "Admin" section [1].
  • Select the "Numbers" tab [2].
  • Click the phone number for which you would like to configure the customized Unsuccessful Queue Callback Message.
  • Select the "Greetings" tab [3].
  • Scroll down until you see "Unsuccessful Queue Callback Message" [4].
  • Add a new message by following the steps below:
    • Click the "Add New Message" link [5]. Or, you can choose an already existing message [6].
    • Assign your Unsuccessful Queue Callback message a name by typing it into the box next to "Message Name". This will be the label applied to your message in Talkdesk. Callers will not hear the message name.
    • If you would like to type in a message to be converted to audio, select "Text to Speech" [7] and type your message next to the box labeled "Message".
    • Alternatively, if you have a pre-recorded message that you would like to play to callers, select "Upload File" [8] and click the "Choose File" button. Talkdesk currently supports mp3 and wav file types. If you have a file saved in another format you can convert your audio file to a format we support by using this tool.
    • "Save" your new message [9].
  • Once you have finished, click "Save" at the bottom of the page.

Important: repeat these steps for each phone number in your account.
