Following on yesterday’s post about pending balances is a relatively new feature within Call-Em-All – the ability to restrict the length of your messages. This feature can be found by clicking “My Account” then “Broadcast Preferences”. When set, our 866 number will automatically stop recording if you go over the set limit. There are two reasons why you would want to do this:
1) Recording a message over 30 seconds causes you to use additional call units. This is particularly handy if you are having a celebrity or someone unfamiliar with Call-Em-All record your message, or if you have more than one user on your account.
2) If you are setting up several broadcasts at the same time, but want to record the messages later – this will keep your pending balance from becoming too large.
