Hi Mohamed,

Check the mailbox for the After Greeting Setting;

After Greeting

Indicate the action that Cisco Unity performs after the greeting plays:

**Take Message - Cisco Unity records a message from the caller. Click the Take Message link to view the Messages page.

Say Good-Bye - Cisco Unity plays a brief good-bye, and the call is disconnected. Click the Say Good-Bye link to view the Good-Bye call handler.

Send Caller To - Cisco Unity sends the call to the destination that you select:

Call Handler - Sends the call to the call handler that you select.

Directory Handler - Sends the call to directory assistance.

Greetings Administrator - Sends the call to a conversation for changing call handler greetings over the phone.

Hang Up - Disconnects the call. Use carefully; unexpected hang-ups can appear rude to callers.

Interview Handler - Sends the call to the interview handler that you select.

- Sends the call to the subscriber logon conversation.

Subscriber - Sends the call to the subscriber that you select.

Hope this helps!

Hi All,

         I am trying set up after hours greetings. The greeting is played but after 8 times ringing. My customer does not want to hear the rings they want to hear direct greeting. I set up transfer rule to greeting in after hours call handler but still it is not working. Please tell me what I should do next to make it work.
