11.0 Embedded Voicemail

11.0 Embedded Voicemail

11.0 Embedded Voicemail

Hello all,

Getting ready for a new install & customer asked if users could have voicemail, but only in an announcement only format.

Basically callers would go in a mailbox, hear the greeting & then get disconnected (not being able to leave a message).

If possible, I would then suspect they will ask if also possible for a Hunt Group voicemail box do the same thing.


RE: 11.0 Embedded Voicemail

Can't you just forward to an Auto Attendant with no destination?

RE: 11.0 Embedded Voicemail

Just don't have a Fallback Extension destination on the ICR, as that is used as the timeout option of the Automated Attendants.

RE: 11.0 Embedded Voicemail

Thanks everyone,

We will be using no Auto Attendants at all.

This is for a County Court House & just all the departments want their Hunt Group voicemail to answer the incoming lines after x number of rings.

derfloh, we are using the IP Office mode, so how would/do you accomplish this?


RE: 11.0 Embedded Voicemail

Listen to the options when saving the recording you have made
Save the recording as number 4 instead of 3
This way the recording is played as a loop then disconnects.
You cant leave messages

If you save it as 3 then the caller will be asked to leave a message.
