UC Office Manager – 9 Music On Hold

Click the Music On Hold icon on the menu bar.

Playing a track as music on hold is considered as commercial use of the music.  You are not permitted to upload copyright material, even if you have purchased it for personal use.  There are a couple of options:

  1. Purchase a license to play copyright music from Entandem .  Playing copyright material without a license can result in a fine of up to $20,000.
  2. Use no copyright music.  This can be found online at sites like https://pixabay.com/music/.  Search for ‘No copyright music’.

You are responsible for any music on hold uploaded to your company system.

A search field at the top-left of the page allows you to view the MOH files for a specific user by entering a file name, and then clicking the magnifying glass icon.
