SPA9000 Wish to bypass AA and go straight to voicemail
I have 4 SPA942's, registered on my SPA9000 with their own extensions (100-103) no shared line appearances, an fxs port analogue extension 104, and a hunt group (105) which is set to ring for incoming calls. An SPA400 one shared voicemail box (101). Everything including voicemail works fine! However:
The deployment is upmarket residential (and I expect a lot of demand from this market segment). Accordingly, the clients are not interested in the auto-attendant and wish unanswered calls to be routed directly to voicemail - as with a normal answering machine. I have recorded a rather awkward AA prompt 1 to ask callers to dial extension 105 to leave a message (which results in a voice mail message that the person at extension 101 is not available etc. before a message can be left) I have seen many discussion groups where this configuration is requested but no satisfactory answer. It would be very useful to many users if you can help.
I have noticed that when calls are made to an internal extension that this is achieved automatically. I have tried seting the SPA9000 to route directly to vm but this results in no AA and no VM. Configs for one ITSP and one FXO line are as follows:
Configure Multicast Paging on the Cisco IP Phone 7800 Series or 8800 Series Multiplatform Phone
The Cisco IP Phone 7800 and 8800 Series Multiplatform Phones provide voice communication over an Internet Protocol (IP) network...
Add Call Park on a Cisco 7800 or 8800 Series Multiplatform Phone Key Expansion Module
Call park allows the user of the phone to put an incoming call on hold so that the call can be retrieved on another phone. A call is park...
