Lighting multiple MWIs

Is it possible to lite multiple MWIs on multiple phones for one voicemail box? If so how do I set up the feature in Unity 2.4 Build <br><br>


Re: Lighting multiple MWIs

There's no easy way to do this in 2.x... Unity 3.x has support for 10 MWI lamp codes for each subscriber. You can even get real fancy and have it light lamps on different phone switches with different codes using multiple MWI defintions in your switch file if you really want to.

If you're desperate and you really can't get off 2.4.5 you could hack it and use a pager notification device, for instance, to send a dialable lamp code (assuming you have analog lamp codes at your disposal... wont work for digital or serial integrations).

the only other way I can think of would be to create a series of dummy subscribers and have messages left for all of them when you leave a message for subscriber X and each of these dummy subs would have a different lamp code. There weren't per seat license charges in 2.4.5 so this wont cost you any money but it is a headache to setup and maintain if you want to do this for a bunch of folks.
