Platform – New Features for January

Last month we rolled out our Platform Advanced update which launched an intuitive new interface for managing your service and features. If you missed it, you can read more about it here. It’s chocked full of exciting new features and a modern new look.

As promised, we have some exciting new updates to share for January too. Take a look around, and here are a few we’d like to spotlight:

Text to Speech

When building a menu or media (that’s a spoken message), you can now use Text to Speech with customizable voices and languages.

This feature can be found in the Play Media feature within Callflow App or SmartPBX’s Virtual Receptionist.

Sending Faxes

Now available for all users, Fax Box allows you to receive and now Send faxes from any number.

You can enable this feature within Call Flow’s Fax Box section, or add a Fax Box for each user in SmartPBX.


With more phones shipping with more buttons, many harken to think about the “good old days” when you could see someone else busy on the phone. Our presence feature is just that, but advanced enough to know when any one user’s phone or apps are in-use, or just monitor a special phone or app, easily.

You can also monitor use of Call Parking, Conferences, and more. To learn more about Presence, schedule a support appointment, or check out our new video tutorials.
