Voicemail Guide

Everything voicemail, all in one place.

1Set Up Your Voicemail

A voicemail box is pre-built into each user's line and all ring groups. You don't have to do anything to set up your voicemail unless you want to customize the greeting and settings. See Manage Voicemail below for various setting options.

2Set Up Shared Voicemail

Shared voicemails are independent voicemail boxes, separate from the voicemail box on a user’s line or a ring group, that can be created and added to a dial plan or to a personal user’s line if they prefer. They allow for multiple users to access and use the same voicemail box rather than each user having their own separate ones.

A shared voicemail box cannot be assigned to a line key on a phone, eliminating the ability to visually monitor voicemails (blinking line key).

As such, all users that have this line assigned to their device will see the line key light up once a voicemail is received.
