Re: just simple question

Hi Said,

You are most welcome my friend! The Alternate Greeting is really used more for "one-up" type requirements, like when I am going on vacation for a week and want to identify my absence to callers. The Closed greeting would be used everyday when the call comes in outside my hours of work, so it is a more "static" type of config.

Hope this makes sense :)

Hi Said,

No worries, this is expected behaviour with the Alternate Greeting (the Alternate greeting overrides all others). Try using the Closed greeting along with a schedule to give a different greeting outside of normal hours of operation :)

Hope this helps!

Re: just simple question

thank you Rob.

so when i actvated Alternate greeting manually,it overrides all others.it dosn't work atomaticly if i cheek "desable" in the Status menu.

In this case, what'is the goal of the Alternate.

Re: just simple question

thank you

the closed greeting use the time in concordance with the time defined in "shedule". And it will work automaticly in outside hours of work : that is right.
