Hello;
One feature I would really like to see and I think would be very easy to implement is voicemail blasting. That is, say, if I am a department head and want to send a voicemail to everyone in my department, all I need to do is leave one voicemail message, and have it propagate to all my people. For example, I leave a voicemail for mailbox '500', and the message gets copied to users 501, 502, 503, 504, etc. Thats just a few lines of PERL. The ability to configure voicemail groups via Thirdlanes web page is what would be slick in my opinion.
Regards;
FSD

this wouldn't be too difficult to create a script similar to the ring group script and assign a feature code extension to dial. As far as graphical, it would just have a field you populate with space seperated extensions.

without writing a new script this can be done already with tl-goto-voicemail.

assign a feature extension to this script

select the mailboxes you want to leave the message for

select mailbox options like 'b, u, s' etc.

Nothing really fancy here, but I threw together a quick script to authenticate before leaving a voicemail message. I called it VoiceMailBlast. The password is set in {ARG3}. I created a feature code for the script and selected all of the voicemail boxes that should receive the blast.

Thanks for the info, eeman.

exten => s,1,Answer

exten => s,n,Authenticate(${ARG3}|a)

exten => s,n,VoiceMail(${ARG1}|${ARG2})

exten => s,n,Hangup
