The next generation of voic on Main Campus The University of Toledo Unified Messaging
Unified Messaging (or UM) is the integration of different streams of messages ( , fax, voice, video, etc.) into a single in-box, accessible from a variety of different devices. What is Unified Messaging? Definition source en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified messagingen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified messaging
Its easier and faster to deal with voic – you can sort through a list of messages from your PC by accessing your Outlook Inbox. Manage messages from your PC, telephone, PDA or a Web Browser. Communicate more effectively with compound messages – forwarding voic s with an introduction or embed voice messages into your s. Text to speech capabilities, use a telephone to call and hear your messages through your Unified Mailbox. Yes, the system actually converts text to speech! Text to speech capabilities also allow you to check your calendar over the telephone through your Unified Mailbox. Benefits of Unified Messaging
Lets look at how the systems work together. How does Unified Messaging work? Your account is imported into the Unified Messaging System. You receive notification that your account has been created. You personalize your Unified Messaging mailbox and forward your calls.
Univerge 8500 and UT Exchange Mail Servers Working together to unify your communications Phone is on a Forward Busy and Forward No Answer to the Unified Message extension 6600 After the voic message is left it is sent to the server, at the same time the PBX will turn on your telephone Message Waiting Indicator. Your voic greeting plays and your caller leaves a voic message. The voice message is saved as a.wav sound file attachment and delivered to your Outlook Inbox.
Inbox with Unified Messages Now that you have seen how the call flow process works when your telephone is forwarded to the Unified Message system, lets take a closer look at an Outlook Inbox. Let me stress that you can always pick up your telephone and retrieve your voice mail messages.
Outlook Snapshot In Outlook, Horn icon indicates voic message The SUBJECT field shows detailed information depending on who the message is from. For instance: Message from extension 4813 – this caller is on MC but does not have UM. Message from – this call is from an Off Campus caller. Message from Wisniewski, Dianne – this caller is a Unified Message Subscriber. The subject field can be overwritten by you to include caller specific details – your callers request for instance. Paper clip icon indicates an attachment (voic is a.wav attachment)
