This is in progress so it is not complete yet

Setup Once:
Tools > IVR Editor > Create IVR Menu "VMAIL"

  1. TODO show how to setup VMAIL IVR

Setup > Manage and asign an extesion # to VMAIL "everyone will use it"

Record announce
Should say "Please say your name so I may
announce who is calling"

Record accept_call for the person to accept the call
should say "Please Press 1 to accept the call
or hangup to send to voicemail"

Now you have to setup a web url script that runs during events. This script I
will show you can run from any webserver you may have running anywhere in house
is obviously the best in case your internet goes down

  1. TODO Add scripts to show how to handle "in route to extension"
