Voicemail Playback, Filtering, and Options


Access and Troubleshooting


Select   on the left panel to access the voicemail screen. The screen is divided into two areas the left one listing available voicemail message and the right one for playing them.


Note that voicemail messages (as well as PIN and greeting options for the mailbox) can also be accessed by dialing *1 on the keypad. See more information here


If you cannot see or receive voicemails ("No voicemails found" is displayed in the left column) check the Voicemail Channels  MANAGE VOICEMAILS option in the TeleConsole's settings and ensure that at least one of your voicemail channels is active!



Playback, Filtering, and Transcription


Each voicemail in the left column shows the number of the caller who left the particular voicemail (top), the mailbox it was left in and its duration (bottom), and the date it was left.



New voicemails (that you have not yet opened and listened to) appear in bold type.

 

 


Click   to select what voicemails are shown in the left column - All Voicemails, Old Voicemails, or New Voicemails


If you can't find a specific voicemail make sure it is not being filtered out by your selection here. You can always select All Voicemails or use the global search feature to find it.


Select any voicemail to open it for playback. Click   to play the voicemail and to pause the playback. The voicemail duration and current position of the playhead are shown above the audio progress bar. You can click and drag the playhead back and forth to repeat or skip parts of the voicemail.


  Voicemail transcription will be available only if enabled for the mailbox on the admin portal under Features>Mailboxes>Transcribe Voicemail.
