I have a request from one customer to configure the following scenario:


If somebody call the manger does not take the call the call will be forwarded to his secretary, if his secretary does not answer, the call will be forwarded to the manager's Voice Mail.


I have one solution but I need to know if somebody has better solution?

Unity 5 and 7 do have a new setting on which you can have Unity to choose between the original called number(manager) or the last redirecting number(secretary) to choose the mailbox.

The default is to use the original called number which is the legacy behavior in 3.x and 4.x where there was no option to choose.


You can read the whole explanation of that setting here:

In your case you don't need to change anything, just let the system work as it should.

You do not mention what you use so i'm just going to assume this is CUCM 7.x and Unity 7.x. If not, remember to always mention what you use as no one here has psychic powers ;-)


Easiest solution is to just use CFNA/CFB from manager to secretary and have secretary CFNA/CFB to VM. Unity default behavior is to use original called number to select the destination VM so they'll end up in manager's VM.

thank you dear,

No need for psychic power :)


yes I am using CCM7 and Unity7.


It will be very nice and easy solution, but are you sure 100% about this?


"Unity default behavior is to use original called number to select the destination VM so they'll end up in manager's VM."


Thank you.
