The Voicemail Blasting module is used to create a group or groups of voicemail users and assign them a number (internal) that can be dialed to leave specific voicemail users a message.
- From the top menu click Applications
- In the drop down click Voicemail Blasting
Adding a VMBlast Group
Enter the number that users will dial to access the VMBlast Group. This number must not conflict with an existing extension number.
Provide a descriptive name for the VMBlast Group. This is a mandatory field.
Select which message to play to the caller so they can confirm that they have called the proper VMBlast Group number. The default is to have the system read the VMBlast Group number. In the following example, we created a system recording called “Receptionists” and we selected that recording to be played to the caller for verification. See the System Recordings module user guide for more information.
Specify a numerical password to protect the group from accidental use.
Voicemail Box List
Select voicemail boxes to add to this group. Use the “CTRL” key to select multiple, but not sequential boxes
Default VMBlast Group
Each PBX system can have a single Default Voicemail Blast Group. If specified, extensions can be automatically added (or removed) from this default group in the Extensions (or Users) module. Making a group the default will uncheck the option from the current default group if it was previously specified.
