This How-To covers the first method to setup alarm calls in Voicemail Pro – manually creating alarm calls in the Voicemail Pro Client. This guide was based around R9.1, but should apply to earlier versions of IP Office as well.
1: Open Voicemail Pro Client
Open the Voicemail Pro Client and login to the system. Once logged in, navigate to the following location:
Server Queues -> Alarms
2: Setup Manual Alarm Call
Once in the Alarms section, right click and select “Add”. This will open up a new window where you can enter the following details:
Target (the extension you want the alarm to ring)
Frequency (Single, Daily, Weekly)
Day (Today, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
File (Recording to play when the system makes the alarm call)
Display Text (Display a text message on the screen of the phone with the alarm call)
Ring Time (Seconds)
Interval (Minutes: 1 to 15)
Once configured to your needs, all that is left is to press OK to confirm the alarm details and then Save & Make Live the config.
You should now be able to manually setup alarm calls through Voicemail Pro. Please note however that only 2 alarm calls can be in progress at any one time.
