OK to edit ivr section in extensions_additional.conf?

In digital receptionist function, I need to play announcement-> tell callers current time -> play another announcement that tells callers to press this or that for extensions.

My current solution is to edit the ivr section and add the playback and sayunix time lines. It seems to work fine, but, Is this the correct way of doing this? Can I do this staying in freepbx GUI? If not, will freepbx clobber my additions? What do I do to keep those there?

BTW It would be nice if freepbx adds option to play multiple system recordings for one digital receptionist entry. That way we can assemble few sentences using built-in sounds.

TIA

Hi,

Sorry I wasn’t clear. I meant the latest release candidate.

As for the time, there not appear to be a way to do this. Queues give you
the ability to tell people what their estimated hold time is, but not what
the current time is.

The newest FreePBX allows for adding multiple sounds together to use as a
single recording.

Alex,

Are you talking about latest RC or stable 2.1.3 that I am using?
How about inserting the sayunix time in between? Is there a way? other than editing the file?
