Configuring a PBX voicemail to email
PBX Voicemail object is a feature which allows you to prompt a caller to leave a message in the event that no one answers an incoming call. Once logged in on the customer portal click on the PBX tab. Then select voicemail from the toolbox menu on the left, drag and drop it onto the main configuration screen. Next, click on the settings icon.
After that, you should enter a name and an email address to forward the messages. Also, it is possible to customise the greeting on the voicemail, you are able to upload a custom greeting recorded previously (clicking on the green button) or record a new greeting (clicking on the red button). Within the advanced options, you can create your message template which will be forwarded to the email address chosen. Finally, don't forget to save and apply the new configuration.
