How to Enable or Disable Answering Machine Detection
- AMD works only in ratio and predictive dialing modes
- AMD is NOT 100% accurate
- Your leads may experience a 3-4 delay due to the time it takes the system to determine whether the call is answered by a live person or an answering machine

AMD Off (8368):
This setting will route calls with answering machines or voicemails to agents. The agent then has the option to disposition the call as “A-Answering Machine” or any desired disposition.
AMD On (8369):
This setting will route only live calls to agents. When the system detects an answering machine, the call will automatically be dispositioned as “AA-Answering Machine Auto,” “AL-Answering Machine Played Msg Played,” or “AM-Answering Machine Sent to Msg Played,” depending on whether you have voicemail drops configured or not. Note:
AMD is not 100% accurate and your agents may still receive a few voicemails from time to time.
