By default, all numbers in your account have the default properties set. However, Freshcaller allows you to configure and customize distinct properties for the numbers. For example, you can have a different ring tone/hold music for each number and can also decide how calls should be recorded for a specific number. 


User Requirements: Only admins or account admins can access the Number Properties.


To view the number properties:

  1. Log in to your Freshcaller account.
  2. Go to Admin Settings > Numbers. You can see the list of available numbers in your account. If you do not have any number, you can purchase a new number using the Buy New Number option.
  3. Hover over any number and click on the edit icon. You will see the Number Properties tab.
  4. The various options available are:
