How do I set Announce-Only Mode for my voicemail from my phone? (UK)

Voicemail settings can be altered via Account Manager, the 8x8 Virtual Office Desktop and Online applications, and either your mobile or desk phone.

To set Announce-Only Mode from your phone

  1. Access the voicemail system:
    • From your own extension
      Dial 555 and enter your voicemail password.
    • From another extension in your system
      Dial 500, enter your extension number, then enter your voicemail password.
    • From an outside line*
      Dial your 10-digit phone number. At your voicemail greeting, press the # key.
      *Note: In your call forwarding rules, make sure “no answer”  calls are set to go to voicemail.
  2. Once inside, press the * key to enter the Main Menu.
  3. Press 6 to enable or disable “announcement only” mode (e.g. your vacation greeting).
