Enrolling as a Cisco Unity Connection User

Your first step in using Cisco Unity Connection is to enroll as a user, which you do by phone. Typically,

Connection is set up so that you hear the first-time enrollment conversation when you call the system for the first time.

The first-time enrollment conversation is a set of prerecorded prompts that guide you as you do the following tasks:

Record your name.

Record a greeting that outside callers hear when you do not answer your phone.

Change your phone password.

Choose whether to be listed in the directory. (When you are listed in the directory, callers who do not know your extension can reach you by spelling or saying your name.)

Typically, your Connection administrator gives you an ID (usually your desk phone extension) and a temporary phone password.

At any time after enrollment, you can rerecord your name and greeting, or change your phone password and directory listing status.

To Enroll as a Cisco Unity Connection User

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Dial the applicable number to call Connection from your desk phone, from another phone within your organization, or from outside your organization.

If you are calling from another phone within your organization or from outside your organization, press

* when Connection answers.

Listen carefully, and respond as prompted. You do not need to refer to any Connection documentation during enrollment. The system will tell you when the enrollment process is complete.

If you hang up before you have completely enrolled, the first-time enrollment conversation plays again the next time you log on to Connection.

About the Connection Conversation

When you access Cisco Unity Connection by phone, you hear the Connection conversation. Its recorded instructions and prompts guide you as you send and receive messages, record greetings, and change your personal settings. You can use any phone to access Connection.

There are two ways in which you can use Connection by phone:

Phone keypad

Voice commands

Press the keys on the phone keypad.

Use this option when it is not important to have both hands free, when you are in an environment with significant background noise, or when you want more

Connection feature options.

Speak into the phone handset, headset, or speakerphone.

Use this option when you want hands-free access to the Connection system.

Note

Some TTY phones (text phones) do not have the capability to send the appropriate tones. In this case,

TTY users may need to use the phone keypad when navigating the Connection conversation.

Using the Phone Keypad with the Connection Conversation

There are several versions of the Connection conversation, each providing different keypad mappings for the Connection menu options. (For example, you might press 3 to delete a message in one version but press 7 to delete a message in another version.)

Your Connection administrator determines the conversation version that you hear. Typically, an administrator will choose a conversation that has a keypad mapping that is familiar to you. Ask your

Connection administrator which conversation you are set up to use.

OL-16805-01 3

Using Voice Commands with the Connection Conversation

Keypad mappings for conversations are provided in the “Cisco Unity Connection Phone Menus and

Voice Commands”

chapter.

Using Voice Commands with the Connection Conversation

Revised May 2009

Connection provides a voice-recognition option that lets you say what you want to do in the Connection conversation. Voice commands are intuitive, easy to use, and available for most voice-messaging tasks.

Procedures in the User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Phone Interface describe the voice commands you can use, or you can say “Help” at any time to get more information on any menu. For lists of available voice commands, see the

“Voice Commands” section on page 99

.

At the Main menu, you can access a set of tutorials on working with voice commands by saying

“Tutorial.”

You can say commands at most points in the conversation—you do not have to wait for the system to finish a prompt. In addition, if you know exactly what you want to do, you can say more complex commands without having to navigate through a hierarchy of menus to accomplish a task. For example, you can say, “Send a private and urgent message to Tina Chen” at the Main menu.

If you are not comfortable saying commands or you are in a situation where your commands are not recognized by the system (for example, you are on a mobile phone where there is background noise), you can switch to using only the phone keypad for the remainder of the call. To turn off voice commands, say “Touchtone conversation” or press the applicable key at the Main menu. Your Connection administrator can tell you the key, or you can say “Touchtone command Help.” To switch back to using voice commands, hang up and log on to Connection again.

For select commands, you can press the applicable key without turning off voice commands. For

Connection 7.1, your Connection administrator can tell you the commands and the corresponding keys, or you can say “Touchtone command Help.” For Connection 7.0, see the Key(s) column in the tables in the

“Voice Commands” section on page 99

.

Your Connection administrator determines whether the voice-recognition option is available to you.

Calling Cisco Unity Connection

You can call Cisco Unity Connection from your desk phone, from another phone within your organization, or from outside your organization.

To Call Cisco Unity Connection

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Dial the applicable number to call Connection.

If you are calling from another phone within your organization or from outside your organization, press

* when Connection answers.

If prompted, enter your ID and press #.

Enter your Connection password and press #.

Note

If you use the voice-recognition option, Connection may prompt you to say your password or to enter it on the phone keypad. To say your password, speak each digit individually. If Connection is not able to recognize your password on the first attempt, you must enter it on the keypad. (For security reasons, you may want to enter your password on the keypad rather than say it; this option is always available to you.)

Sending Voice Messages

Sending Voice Messages

You can send voice messages to other Cisco Unity Connection users without dialing their extensions.

This can be helpful when you do not want to disturb a user or when you do not have time for a phone conversation. Sending voice messages may also help to avoid misunderstandings that can be “read” into e-mail messages.

You can address a voice message to one or multiple recipients, and to private and system distribution lists. Depending on the input style you are using, you address a message either by saying the name of a

Connection user or distribution list, or by using the phone keypad to spell the name of the user or list, or to enter the extension or list number.

The following special delivery options are available:

Urgent

Return receipt

Private

Future delivery

Mark a message urgent so that Connection sends it before regular messages.

Request a return receipt so that Connection notifies you when the recipient opens the message.

Note

You may not be able to receive all types of receipts, even though the

Connection phone menus allow you to request them. Ask your Connection administrator whether the system is set up to send receipts to users.

Mark a message private so that the recipient knows to treat it confidentially.

Connection users cannot forward private messages by phone.

Deliver the message at the future date or time that you specify.

This section contains two procedures. Do the applicable procedure, depending on whether you are using the phone keypad or voice commands.

To Send a Voice Message by Using the Phone Keypad

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Call and log on to Connection.

At the Main menu, choose the option Send a Message.

Follow the prompts to record, address, and send the voice message.

To pause or resume recording, press 8. To end recording, press #.

Tip •

While addressing the message, press ## to switch between spelling and number entry.

To address the message to a private list, enter the list number by using number entry, or, if the list has a display name in the Cisco Unity Assistant web tool, spell the name by using spelling entry.

When more than one user matches your addressing entries, Connection plays a list of matches that you can navigate quickly. Press # to select a recipient from a list; press 7 to skip to the previous name and 9 to skip to the next name; and press 77 to skip to the beginning of a list and 99 to skip to the end of a list.

When you are finished addressing the message, say “Done.”

Tip •

For faster addressing, say the name of the next recipient before Connection finishes the confirmation message.

Revised May 2009

You can check new and saved messages in your Cisco Unity Connection mailbox by phone, as well as messages in your e-mail application.

You can save or delete messages during message playback or after you listen to an entire message.

Ask your Connection administrator if the system is set up to enforce a message-retention policy and, if so, how long it stores your messages before permanently deleting them. (Connection does not indicate when a message-retention policy is enforced, nor does it warn you before messages are permanently deleted as a result of such a policy.)

This section contains two procedures. Do the applicable procedure, depending on whether you are using the phone keypad or voice commands.

To Check Messages by Using the Phone Keypad

Managing Receipts

Revised May 2009

As you work with Cisco Unity Connection, you may manage several different types of receipts, which are described in

Table 1

. Ask your Connection administrator which receipts the system is set up to use.

Table 1 Cisco Unity Connection Receipts

Type

Read

Delivery

Nondelivery (NDR)

Description

Receipt message that informs you when the recipient plays your message.

Receipt message that informs you when your message was delivered to the intended recipient.

Receipt message that informs you when your message could not be delivered to the intended recipient.

When you check messages, Connection plays receipts along with your other messages. You play and delete receipts in the same way as other messages; you cannot reply to or forward them.

Managing Receipts

For read receipts, Connection plays a list of the recipients who played the message you sent. For NDRs,

Connection identifies recipients whose mailboxes did not accept the message.

After Connection plays an NDR, you can hear the original message and resend it to the recipient(s) who failed to receive it. You can record an introduction, modify the recipient list, and change delivery options when resending a message. Once you resend the message, Connection automatically deletes the NDR.

This section contains two procedures. Do the applicable procedure, depending on whether you are using the phone keypad or voice commands.

About Finding Messages

Cisco Unity Connection offers three options for finding messages by phone:

Message Locator

Phone View

Go to Message

Allows you to find new and saved voice messages based on search criteria.

Allows you to find new and saved voice messages based on search criteria, then displays results on the LCD screen of your Cisco IP phone.

Allows you to find a saved message based on the message number.

Not all of these options may be available to you. Check with your Connection administrator.

Finding Messages by Using the Message Locator Option

With Message Locator, you find voice messages from a particular user by entering the username or extension. You can also find voice messages from all outside callers or messages left by callers who called from a specific number.

Based on the criteria that you enter, Cisco Unity Connection begins playing messages as they are found.

By default, messages are presented in order of newest to oldest—regardless of whether the messages are new or saved—though your Connection administrator may change this playback order.

About Deleted Messages

Cisco Unity Connection saves your deleted messages; you can play, restore, or permanently delete them.

Permanently Deleting Deleted Messages

Deleting messages can be an important way to reduce the size of your mailbox, especially when

Cisco Unity Connection is not set up to automatically delete messages once they reach a certain age.

Ask your Connection administrator if the system is set up to enforce a message-retention policy.

Connection does not indicate when a message-retention policy is enforced, nor does it warn you before messages are permanently deleted as a result of such a policy. If Connection is not set up to do so, make sure that you permanently delete messages periodically. (For information on what to do if your mailbox

exceeds its size limits, see the “Managing the Size of Your Mailbox”

chapter.)

This section contains two procedures. Do the applicable procedure, depending on whether you are using the phone keypad or voice commands.

Managing Dispatch Messages

Dispatch messages are sent to a distribution list of users who are available to respond to issues, but only one person needs to respond. When listening to a dispatch message, you are given the following options:

Accept the message

Decline the message

Postpone the message

Means that you are the only member of the distribution list that will respond to the message. Copies of the message are removed from the mailboxes of all other recipients, whether they have listened to the message or not.

Means that the message is removed from your mailbox, but copies of the message remain as unheard in the mailboxes of other recipients who have not yet declined the message.

Note

If all other recipients have declined the dispatch message, you must accept it. You will not be allowed to decline the message.

Means that the message remains as an unheard message in your mailbox and in the mailboxes of the other recipients who have not yet declined the message.

When the message has been accepted by one of the members of the distribution list, Cisco Unity

Connection removes copies in the mailboxes of the remaining recipients.

When listening to dispatch messages, note the following considerations:

If another recipient accepts the dispatch message before you accept it, your copy of the message is removed from your mailbox.

When you decline a dispatch message, Connection does not move it to your deleted items folder.

Dispatch messages trigger the message waiting indicator (MWI) on your phone. If another recipient accepts a dispatch message, Connection turns off your MWI after it removes the message from your mailbox. There may be a window of time between message removal and the MWI going off. If you find no new messages after noting the MWI, it likely is because you checked during this window.

When configuring message notification rules to include dispatch messages, be aware that by the time you receive a notification and call in to retrieve the message, it may be gone from your mailbox because another user has already accepted the message.

To Manage a Dispatch Message by Using the Phone Keypad

After listening to a dispatch message, follow the prompts to accept, decline, or postpone the message.

Placing Calls By Using Voice Commands

You can place a call to another Cisco Unity Connection user by saying the person's name or extension.

For example, when you say “Call Harriet Smith,” Connection finds the extension for Harriet in the corporate directory and places the call.

Note that to place calls by using voice commands, you must be logged on to Connection.

After you say a name or extension, Connection plays a matching name or extension and places the call.

If Connection finds more than one match for a name or extension that you requested, the first match is played and Connection will ask you to confirm whether the match is correct. If not, say “No,” and

Connection will continue to play the other matches.

To Place a Call by Using Voice Commands

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Log on to Connection.

When Connection asks, “What do you want to do,” say:

“Call <Name/alternate name>” to call a Connection user. (For example, “Call Frank Edwards.”)

Or

“Call <Number>” to call a Connection extension or a phone number. Say each digit individually. (For example, for extension 12345, say “Call one two three four five,” not “Call twelve three forty-five.”)

Or

“Call <Name/alternate name> at <home/work/mobile>” to call a contact at a particular number. (For example, “Call Bob on his mobile” or “Call Service Department at work.”

As Connection says the name or number of the person you are calling, you can say “Cancel” to halt the last action without losing your connection to the system.

Turning Your Alternate Greeting On or Off, page 39

Changing Greetings, page 40

Playing All Greetings, page 41

Recording Greetings in Additional Languages with a Multilingual System, page 42

About Your Personal Greetings

Cisco Unity Connection allows you to record up to six personal greetings. You can turn on as many greetings as you want, and you can specify how long you want the greetings to stay on.

With a multilingual system, you have the option of providing your personal greetings in multiple languages—your default language and other languages available on your system. Note that you use the phone keypad to manage greetings in languages other than your default language; you cannot use voice commands.

This section describes the personal greetings available to you. Note that Connection plays the greetings that you turn on for the applicable situation, while some greetings override other greetings when they are on.

Standard Greeting

This greeting plays during the business hours that your Connection administrator specified for your organization, or in other situations when no other greeting is on.

By design, the standard greeting cannot be turned off.

Closed Greeting

Turn on this greeting when you want your callers to hear a recording from you during the nonbusiness hours that your Connection administrator specified for your organization. (For example, “Sorry, I am not available to answer your call. Company office hours are <times>.”)

When it is on, the closed greeting overrides the standard greeting during nonbusiness hours.

User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Phone Interface Release 7.x

OL-16805-01 37

About Your Personal Greetings

Alternate Greeting

Turn on this greeting for a specific time period when you want to provide information about special circumstances, such as when you are on vacation. (For example, “I will be out of the office until

<date>.”)

When it is on, the alternate greeting overrides all other greetings.

Your Connection administrator specifies whether the system transfers callers to your greeting without ringing your phone, whether callers are able to skip your greeting, and whether callers can leave you a message when your alternate greeting is on. The Alternate Greeting page in the Cisco Unity Assistant web tool indicates the caller options that your administrator has enabled for you, if any. Note that caller options do not apply when an outside caller or another Connection user dials your extension directly.

Tip

Other Connection users do not hear your alternate greeting when they send messages to you by phone.

When you turn on your alternate greeting, consider also changing your recorded name to include information that you are out of the office. Your recorded name plays when users address messages to you and when callers look you up in the directory. (See the

“Changing Your Recorded Name” section on page 56 .)

Connection may play a prompt to remind you that your alternate greeting is on after you log on by phone.

Busy Greeting

Turn on this greeting when you want callers to know that you are on the phone. (For example, “I am currently on another line, please leave a message.”)

When it is on, the busy greeting overrides the standard, closed, and internal greetings when your phone is busy.

Note that not all phone systems provide the support necessary for the Connection busy greeting to work.

For assistance, talk to your Connection administrator.

Internal Greeting

Turn on this greeting when you want to provide information that coworkers might need to know. (For example, “I will be in conference room B until noon today.”)

When it is on, the internal greeting overrides the standard and closed greetings, and plays only to callers within your organization when you do not answer your phone.

Note that not all phone systems provide the support necessary for the internal greeting to work. For assistance, talk to your Connection administrator.

Holiday Greeting

Turn on this greeting when you want callers to hear a recording from you during a holiday. (For example,

“Happy holiday. I am not available to answer your call. I will be out of the office from <date> to

<date>.”)

When it is on, the holiday greeting overrides the standard greeting during nonbusiness hours.

Changing Greetings

To Turn Your Alternate Greeting On or Off by Using Voice Commands

Step 1

Step 2

Call and log on to Connection.

When Connection asks, “What do you want to do,” say either:

“Turn on my alternate greeting” (greeting is left on indefinitely) or “Turn on alternate greeting until

<date> at <time>.”

Or

“Turn off my alternate greeting.”

Changing Greetings

When you turn on a personal greeting, you specify how long you want it available for use. Cisco Unity

Connection plays the greeting in the applicable situation until the date and time that you specified, and then the greeting is automatically turned off. For example, you can set your alternate greeting to stop playing on the day that you return from a vacation.

You can also set a greeting to play indefinitely, which is useful when you turn on the busy or closed greeting.

You choose from one of the following sources to specify what callers hear when a greeting is on:

Rerecord This Greeting

System Greeting

Connection plays a greeting that you record.

Note

Recording a greeting does not turn it on.

Connection plays a prerecorded greeting along with your recorded name (for example, “Sorry, <your name> is not available”). If you do not have a recorded name, Connection uses text-to-speech to read your display name instead. When a greeting is on but not recorded, Connection plays a prerecorded system greeting.

You can turn off a greeting at any time. When a greeting is off, Connection no longer plays it, though the recording is not erased.

Tip

If you record a personal greeting then set the greeting to use the system greeting, your recording is no longer available by phone. Record and enable a new personal greeting.

This section contains two procedures. Do the applicable procedure depending on whether you are using the phone keypad or voice commands.

Recording Greetings in Additional Languages with a

Multilingual System

With a multilingual system, you have the option of providing your greetings in multiple languages. For example, if Cisco Unity Connection is set up to provide prompts in French and Spanish, you might record your standard greeting in both languages so that Spanish- and French-speaking callers can hear your greeting in their own language.

If you do not record a greeting in a language that your system provides, Connection will play the system greeting for calls associated with that language. For example, if you recorded your standard greeting in

French but not in Spanish, Spanish-speaking callers would hear the system greeting for you while

French-speaking callers would hear the French greeting that you recorded.

Note that when you choose a language in which to record a greeting, Connection plays the Greetings menu options in the same language.

About Private Lists

You can use private lists to create your own groups of voice message recipients. When you address a voice message to one of your private lists, all of the recipients on the list receive the message.

Cisco Unity Connection provides several private lists for you to personalize.

Only you can send voice messages to your private lists. You can do so by using the phone keypad or voice commands. You cannot send messages from your e-mail application to your private lists.

Creating Private Lists

Your Cisco Unity Connection administrator specifies the maximum number of lists that you can manage.

The lists are prenumbered. Once you have added names to a list, Connection plays the list number as an identification when you manage your lists.

Tip

Although you can create private lists by phone, it is easier to do so in the Cisco Unity Assistant web tool.

This section contains two procedures. Do the applicable procedure, depending on whether you are using the phone keypad or voice commands.

Changing the Members of Private Lists

The maximum number of members that you can add to a private list is specified by your Cisco Unity

Connection administrator. Any user or system distribution list that is included in the directory can be a member of your private lists.

Depending on how Connection is set up at your organization, you may be able to send and respond to messages from users on remote voice messaging systems who are not in the directory. If so, you can also include these users—known as remote contacts—in your private lists.

If you try to add a user, system distribution list, or remote contact that is already a member of the private list, Connection does not add the member to the same list again.

Changing the Members of Private Lists

You can add members to, and review and delete members from your private lists.

Note

Administrative changes to private list members may cause them to be presented differently when you review your lists later. Occasionally, administrative changes may even cause some members to be removed from your lists without notice. Your Connection administrator should be able to inform you before changes occur, though you will still need to readd these members to your lists in the event that they are inadvertently removed.

Managing Your Addressing Priority List

About the Addressing Priority List, page 53

Changing Your Addressing Priority List, page 53

About the Addressing Priority List

Your addressing priority list directs Connection to prioritize recipients that you define, similar to a

“buddy” list. When you are addressing a message and Connection finds multiple matches for a recipient name based on partial spelling or on how you say the name, any matching names that are also in your addressing priority list are presented first. This allows you to find and select your intended recipients more quickly.

Connection may also automatically add recipient names to your addressing priority list when you send messages to them, and adjust the priority of names in the list based on how often you send messages to each recipient.

Note

Your Connection administrator determines whether you can review and modify your addressing priority list, and whether Connection automatically adds names to the list based on usage.

Changing Your Addressing Priority List

You can add users, contacts, and distribution lists to your addressing priority list, review the list, and remove names from the list. Your addressing priority list may also contain names that Cisco Unity

Connection has automatically added based on your message addressing history.

About Personal Settings

Personal settings control the information about you as a user on the Cisco Unity Connection system and some of the choices you make for interacting with the system.

Changing Your Phone Password

Your Cisco Unity Connection phone password protects the privacy of your messages and secures your mailbox from unauthorized access. You can change your phone password at any time.

Follow the security guidelines provided by your Connection administrator when you change your phone password. In general, shorter passwords are easier to use, but longer passwords are more secure, especially when you specify a nontrivial password. A nontrivial password means that:

The password cannot contain your primary extension or its reverse.

The password must contain at least three different digits.

The digits cannot all be consecutive in ascending or descending order (for example, 12345 or

54321).

A digit cannot be used more than two times consecutively (for example, 14777).

The password cannot contain repeated groups of three or more digits (for example, 408510408).

The password cannot be a numeric representation of your first or last name, or the combination of your first and last names. (For example, if your name is John Doe, you could not use a numeric representation of johnd, johndoe, jdoe, doe.)

Managing Call Transfer Rules

About Call Transfer Rules, page 61

Changing Settings for Call Transfer Rules, page 62

About Call Transfer Rules

Call transfer rules control how Cisco Unity Connection handles incoming indirect calls, which are from callers who do not dial you directly (for example, callers who use the directory to reach you). For direct calls—when outside callers or other users dial your personal phone number to reach you—your

Connection transfer settings do not apply.

You can choose to answer indirect calls, or you can have indirect calls routed immediately to voicemail.

Tip

To set up call transfers for direct calls to your extension, talk to your Connection administrator. Your desk phone or even the phone system that your organization uses may offer transfer features that you can use to manage direct calls.

This section describes the transfer rules available to you and how they work. Note that Connection follows the transfer rule that you enable for the applicable situation, while some transfer rules override other rules when they are enabled.

Standard Transfer Rule

This transfer rule is active during the business hours that your Connection administrator specified for your organization. If no other transfer rules are enabled, the standard transfer rule is active for nonbusiness hours as well.

By design, the standard transfer rule cannot be disabled.

Alternate Transfer Rule

Enable this transfer rule for a specific time period when you want to override the other transfer rules.

For example, you may want to route all your calls immediately to voicemail while you are out of the office on vacation or you may want to transfer your calls to a different extension if you are temporarily working from another location.

User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Phone Interface Release 7.x

OL-16805-01 61

Changing Settings for Call Transfer Rules

When it is enabled, the alternate transfer rule is always active. It overrides all other transfer rules.

Closed Transfer Rule

Enable this transfer rule when you want Connection to perform different transfer actions during the nonbusiness hours that your Connection administrator specified for your organization. For example, you may want to route all your calls immediately to voicemail during nonbusiness hours.

When it is enabled, the closed transfer rule is active during nonbusiness hours.

Changing Settings for Call Transfer Rules

You can choose to have indirect calls ring your extension or another extension or phone number that you specify, or be transferred immediately to voicemail, so your phone does not ring at all. (When you send calls to voicemail, callers do not have to wait while your phone rings unanswered. Your greeting plays immediately.)

Managing Your Alternate Contact Numbers

About Alternate Contact Numbers, page 65

Changing Your Alternate Contact Numbers, page 65

About Alternate Contact Numbers

Alternate contact numbers allow you to offer callers the option to transfer to other numbers by pressing a key as they listen to your greeting. An alternate contact number can be the extension for an operator or for another user (such as a supervisor or coworker), or any other number where you or another person can be reached.

Your Cisco Unity Connection administrator determines which keys callers can press to transfer to alternate contact numbers; you may be able to specify up to 12 alternate contact numbers (one for each key on the phone keypad).

Changing Your Alternate Contact Numbers

To specify an alternate contact number outside your organization, begin with any access code needed to make an external call (for example, 9). For long-distance numbers, include the applicable dialing codes

(for example, 1 and the area code).

Tip

When you specify an alternate contact number, you may want to update your greetings to include the information (for example: “I am away from my desk right now. Leave a message at the tone, or press 4 to transfer to another sales representative.”).

About Personal Call Transfer Rule Sets

You set up personal call transfer rule sets so that Cisco Unity Connection transfers particular calls to you according to caller identity, time of day, and your meeting schedule, or transfers your calls to voicemail or to another phone number. Personal call transfer rules are more advanced than the basic transfer rules—standard, alternate, and closed—which allow you to configure basic transfer settings.

You manage your personal call transfer rule sets in the Personal Call Transfer Rules web tool. Once rule sets have been defined, you can enable them in the web tool or by phone. (For more information on how you use and manage personal call transfer rule sets, refer to the User Guide for the Cisco Unity

Connection Personal Call Transfer Rules Web Tool.)

Enabling and Disabling the Use of Personal Call Transfer Rule

Sets by Basic Transfer Rules

Cisco Unity Connection uses personal call transfer rules to process your calls only when the active basic rule—standard, alternate or closed—is configured to apply personal call transfer rules instead of the basic settings.

Broadcast Messages

Occasionally, you may receive a voice message known as a broadcast message from your Cisco Unity

Connection administrator, network administrator, or management personnel in your organization.

Broadcast messages are recorded announcements sent to everyone in your organization. For example, your Connection administrator may send a message asking all users to change their phone passwords, or a Human Resources manager may send a message reminding employees about a deadline for a new benefits package.

Connection plays any broadcast messages immediately after you log on by phone. You must listen to each broadcast message in its entirety before Connection will allow you to check your new and saved messages or to change your setup options. Once a broadcast message has been played, it is permanently deleted for you. You cannot respond to or save broadcast messages.

Broadcast messages do not trigger the message waiting indicator on your phone (for example, a light or a distinctive dial tone when you pick up the receiver).

If you are using the voice-recognition option, you cannot use a voice command to delete a broadcast message. Instead, you are prompted to press # when the message is finished playing. Once the message is deleted, you can continue using voice commands to play and manage other messages.

Managing the Size of Your Mailbox

About Mailbox Size, page 81

Reasons Your Mailbox May Fill Up Quickly, page 81

About Mailbox Size

A full mailbox can affect the speed at which Cisco Unity Connection processes your messages. When you log on by phone, Connection notifies you when your mailbox is:

Almost full.

Full and you can no longer send new messages.

Full and you can no longer send or receive new messages.

Your Connection administrator sets the storage limits for your mailbox. Exceeding those limits can prevent you from sending and receiving messages.

Note

Broadcast messages are not included in your total mailbox size.

Reasons Your Mailbox May Fill Up Quickly

This section describes reasons why you might believe that your Cisco Unity Connection mailbox fills up more quickly than you expect. (Note that your Connection administrator specifies the size of your mailbox.)

Message-Retention Policy May Not Be Enforced

By default, Connection does not automatically delete messages once they reach a certain age. This means that unless your Connection administrator set up the system to enforce a message-retention policy, you are responsible for managing the size of your mailbox by periodically reviewing your saved messages and either moving, archiving, or deleting them permanently.

If Connection is set up to enforce a message-retention policy, ask your Connection administrator how long the system stores your messages before permanently deleting them. You can then plan to archive or move important messages ahead of time. Connection does not indicate when a message-retention policy is enforced, nor does it warn you before message are permanently deleted as a result of such a policy.

User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Phone Interface Release 7.x

OL-16805-01 81

Reasons Your Mailbox May Fill Up Quickly

Nondelivery Receipts Are Included in Total Mailbox Size

When you receive nondelivery receipts (NDRs) for messages that you send, your mailbox can quickly increase in size—especially when original messages included large attachments.

Total Message Size Includes Original When Messages Are Forwarded

You may receive messages that have been forwarded many times over, which increases message size.

The original message plus all recorded introductions that were added during forwarding equal the total message size. As a result, your mailbox can exceed its limit, even though you may have relatively few messages stored in it.

Total Message Size Includes Attachments

You may receive messages that contain attached files such as spreadsheets, documents, and faxes, and pictures. The message plus all attached files equal the total message size. As a result, your mailbox can exceed its limit, even though you may have relatively few messages stored in it.
