- Use the Create a List page to create the list of the people you want to reach.
- Click the Phone Icon and select Set up Voice Broadcast. Click Next.
- Name this Voice Broadcast.
- Pick a Caller ID number for this Voice Broadast. It must be a land-line (not a cell) and should be a phone that recipients can call to contact your team about the Voice Broadcast. The Help Desk recommends using your office front line, if possible.
Note: You need to have access to the Caller ID number the first time you set up a Voice Broadcast as Liberalist will ask you to call to confirm that you have access to the number before allowing you to proceed.
