HI, i will install a Cisco Unified Communications Bussiness Edition  (7x version) with unity connection in a little hotel with no PMS system; my customer is asking about a feature called "voicemail autologin" supported on Meridian PBX. The customer needs this feature because he wants that guests on any room can acces voice mail just dialing the voice mail extension without entering any password.

Is it possible to make this change to all users? I can't seem to see it within the bulk edit tools options.

Hi Greg,

This setting is not available via "Bulk Edit" as you have seen. This can only

be changed on existing users via a one-up method For future users this setting

can be configured on the Template that is associated during the initial setup.

Allowing Users to Access Cisco Unity Connection by Phone Without Entering a Password

By default, users are prompted for a password before they can log on to Cisco Unity Connection to check messages or change their personal settings. As a convenience to users who often access Connection from a mobile phone, home phone, or phone in a secured office within your organization, you may consider specifying that Connection should not prompt them to enter a password when they call Connection to access their mailbox from their primary extension or alternate devices. (When they call Connection from an unknown extension, Connection prompts them for their passwords as usual.)

For security reasons, it may not be appropriate to allow users who work in shared workspaces, cubicles, or other public areas in your organization (such as a lobby or reception area) to access Connection by phone without first entering a password.

Users who do not have to enter a password to log on to Connection are still prompted to renew their phone passwords when they expire.

To Allow Users to Access Cisco Unity Connection By Phone Without Entering a Password

Step 1 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, find the user account or template that you want to edit.

Step 2 On the Edit User Basics or User Template Basics page (as applicable), check the Skip Password When Calling From a Known Extension check box.

Step 3 Click Save.


The settings that can be configured via "Bulk Edit" are highlighted this way, here are two examples;
