We've created a new IVR greeting, now let's set up our IVR menu options.

Click the ‘My new IVR’ widget [1] and select its Exits tab [2]:


  • Select the Keypress digit 1 [3].
  • IVR option 1 should send the call to our sales team so we’ll name our Exit: '1 for sales’.
  • Press ‘Send to[4] and select the ‘Add new step’ option.
  • Type in a name for this step. We’ll call ours: ‘Sales queue’.
  • On the ‘Component type’ drop down menu [5], select ‘Assignment and Dial[6] so we can later select where calls will be routed to when customers press 1.
  • Press ‘Add Step[7].


  • Press the ‘Add Exit’ button [8] to add our second IVR keypress option.
  • Select Keypress 2 [9] to send the call to our support team.
  • Type in a name for this Exit  (e.g. "2 for support").
  • Press ‘Send to’ and select the ‘Add new step’ option [10].
  • We’ll name this step: “Support queue”.
  • On the Component type drop down menu, select ‘Assignment and Dial[11] again so we can later define how option 2 should route our callers.
  • Press the ‘Add Step’ button [12] and ‘Save’ your changes [13].

Our IVR menu is ready! Try it out on your own account, before we proceed with Getting Started Step 3 tutorial to learn how to route calls to agents using Talkdesk Studio.
