Our voice mail system is loaded with features, many of which I’m sure are underused. This article will show you a few features picked from among our most requested features For a more comprehensive list of phone and voice mail features visit the ITS Employee Phone Services webpage.
Send a message directly to someone’s voice mail box
Regular messaging (also allows you to listen to your voice mail messages):
Forward your phone to voice mail - Having a meeting in your office and don’t want your phone to ring? Would you like some time alone with your thoughts? Why not send your phone directly to voice mail? Make sure your phone is not currently in use. Press the Forward key, dial 4808, press Forward again. Now any calls to your extension will go straight into your voice mail. TO cancel this feature just press Forward one more time.
My favorite voice mail feature - I receive a lot of spam phone calls from, you’ll never believe this, voicemail vendors. Many of these messages have zero value and I can’t wait to delete them and get on with my day. The voicemail system won’t allow you to delete a message while you’re listening to it though. You can quickly scan through a message or fast forward directly to the end. While listening to the message press 3 once to fast forward 10 seconds, quickly press 3 twice to fast forward to the end of a message.
