Huntgroup - User Voicemail

Huntgroup - User Voicemail

Huntgroup - User Voicemail

I set up a huntgroup where a few 800 numbers are directed to. My question I need a way for both phones to ring like they are but for a specific user in the huntgroups voicemail to pick up. Not the voicemail for the huntgroup

RE: Huntgroup - User Voicemail

Cant be done with VM Lite,Call to a hunt group will always go to hunt group mailbox unless using VM Pro where you can specify a mailbox for the message to be left using the leave mail action

RE: Huntgroup - User Voicemail

can be done with a bit of SNEAKY programming

creat a sequential(hunt) group as an over flow group

creat a short code simmilar to

SC 666
Number "#<user name>"
Feature Voicemail collect

creat a dummy user & set forware unconditional to 666
enable forward huntgroup calls

add this user to the overflow group

calls will now ring both users in the main group
hit the oiverflow group & divert imidiatley to the user mailbox

RE: Huntgroup - User Voicemail

Thank you for the help but I do not understand what you mean.

RE: Huntgroup - User Voicemail

OK I will try to take it step by step

1) create the following short code

Short Code: 666
Numebr: "#<Mailbox Name>"  - # means leave mail
Feature: VoicemailCollect

2 Create a pahntom user (a user without a physical extn., set forward unconditional to 666, enable forward hunt group calls.  A call to the phantom user will now take a msg for  the mailbox

3)creat a new group - set to hunt & add the pahntom usere

4) in your main group add the new group into the overflow  group list

calls will ring the group, when they overflow they will call the phantom user, which is on divert & will route dircetct to the specified mailbox.

As I said it is SNEAKY programming but it works!

If you are still stuck I can creat a sample Cfg for you to download.
