Audix Name Attendant - Name Announcement Selection

Audix Name Attendant - Name Announcement Selection

Audix Name Attendant - Name Announcement Selection

I've got an Intuity Audix - R5.1-41 - and I've just built a dial-by-name auto-attendant.  I was somewhat disappointed to find out that when I "partial spell" a common last name (like Anderson), it doesn't announce all subscribers with the common last name, and ask you to pick one.

For example, if I have 3 Andersons: Tom, Dick and Harry.  I'd like to be able to spell "Ander", and have Audix say, "For Tom Anderson press 1, For Dick Anderson press 2; For Harry Anderson, press 3."

Is there a creative way to do this or am I just SOL?

RE: Audix Name Attendant - Name Announcement Selection

That's odd... my dial-by-name attd does just that, and I'm on release 5.1-33.  Here's a copy of my setup:

RE: Audix Name Attendant - Name Announcement Selection

SF0751 - Yup - I have the same configuration.  If I partial dial a name, Audix simply asks for more characters to complete the spelling.

Strange that you get what I want running an older version - maybe I should downgrade! smile.   

Anyone out there know the answer to this one?
