If you'd like a little more detail...
First, you’ll need to find the equipment, located in a phone closet or somewhere all your phone lines come together.
Please click on the names below for pictures of the USB units we most commonly provide:
Once you’ve found it, remove the USB stick from the front of the machine and take it with you back to your computer.
You should have received an email from Spectrio, with a link to your company’s secure FTP folder on our server. Open that email and click the link to be directed to your folder. Look for the file with the most recent date and click on the file name to download it to your computer. (Note: if you received your audio as an attachment via email, just right click on the file and select Save As to save the audio to your computer)
When the file has downloaded, open the folder where the file was saved and right click on the file. Select Copy from the menu.
Take the USB stick and plug it into any USB port on your computer. When the window pops up, select Open Folder to View Files.
If there are any old audio files on the USB stick, right click and Delete them. Then, right click and Paste the new file.
When the audio has finished copying to the USB stick, go to the menu at the bottom of your screen and click the icon that says Safely Remove Hardware. Click Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device, and once the popup tells you it’s safe, remove the USB stick from your computer.
Take the USB stick back to your hardware and place it back into the port.
Your new message on hold should now be playing!
