Task action


Use the Task action to build complex IVR options. A task action groups related steps of a process together to create a flow routine. A process is made up of the tasks involved, the sequence of those tasks, and the actions that exist between them. Place tasks under states (in email and message flows) and menus (in call flows). 

In call flows, menu choices contain common settings such as DTMF and speech recognition. You can reuse tasks within the same flow.
