CallPilot Voicemail "Steering"

CallPilot Voicemail "Steering"

CallPilot Voicemail "Steering"

Say you have a line appearance, we'll say Line 1, on two stations. We'll call them Station A and Station B. Both Station A and Station B are set to forward to voicemail after 6 rings.

Is it possible to "steer" voicemail so that Line 1 is forwarded to Station B's voicemail box? Currently, calls get forwarded to Station A's voicemail box.

I know the easy answer would be to either 1) lower the Forward Delay for Station B or 2) raise the Forward Delay for Station A. However, the options are 2, 3. 4, 6, or 10. 4 is a bit too short, and 10 is way to many.

Is there a way to associate a line with a specific voicemail box?

RE: CallPilot Voicemail "Steering"

If the two work stations can hear both phones ringing, you can:

Phone A: Line 1 Appear and Ring, Line 2 Appear Only
Phone B: Line 1 Appear Only , Line 2 Appear and Ring

Only the ringing line will transfer to voice mail.

Try changing the Prime Set under lines, point it to the DN of the mailbox you want it to go to (Station B's DN)

curlycord, changing the Prime Set on the line does exactly what I want. Both stations A and B are set to a 6 ring forward delay and I have specified the Prime Set on the line(s) as appropriate. Calls are now forwarded to the expected voicemail box. Thanks!
