IVR Studies via the Survox Console

These instructions assume that you already have a QPX file with the appropriate IVRBLOCK.

Blended IVR studies require you to use the GETHELDIN function to be able to check for a waiting call and connect that call to an interviewer.

  1. IVR runs in its own mode so you cannot set the dial configuration (.dial file) to predictive mode.
    1. Best Practice recommendation is to not risk abandons on an IVR study so 1-to-1 dialing is optimal.
  2. The only setting that has valuable meaning in a .dial file configuration for an IVR study is the number of rings.
