How to set an IVR in Zendesk?

What is an IVR?
IVR stands for (Interactive Voice Response). When a customer calls a company for a problem-solving purpose, it helps in contacting that customer with the right agent. We can say that its purpose is to connect calls with the correct person who can serve the customer.
For example, when a customer calls an internet company to complain about an issue, an IVR executes when the helpline number is dialled. The helpline asks the customer to press a specific button related to the issue. For a Signal Issue, Press 1 and for Package issue, Press 2. Then the call is transferred to the particular agent.
