SmartVoice Voice Mail (Retirement in Progress)

Recording Voice Greetings

SmartVoice supports external greetings, which are played for all callers, and spoken name greetings, which are used for system identification. By default, SmartVoice plays your external greeting for all callers. You can record additional greetings and set them up to play depending on the calling number, day of the week, or other variables. Refer to Desktop access: Scheduling voice greetings.

Note: Internal greetings are not supported by the UT SmartVoice Voice Mail system.
