Techie Tip of the Week: Forwarding Calls (Cisco VoIP Phones)

Friday, December 21st, 2012

As the University prepares to shut down for the holidays, this week’s tip will show you how to forward calls you might receive to another phone (e.g., your cell phone).

To Forward All Calls:

  1. Press the CfwdALL or Forward All Softkey.
  2. Enter the full telephone number of the target phone: 9 + 1 + Area Code + seven digits.
  3. A flashing right arrow appears next to your telephone number on the LCD screen  to indicate that all incoming calls are being forwarded.

    The target number appears in the status line (near the bottom of the screen).

    Note: CfwdAll doesn’t remember the last number to which all calls were forwarded.

    To cancel, press the CfwdALL/Forward Off  Softkey.

Happy Holidays!

Techie Tip of the Week: Forwarding Voicemail Messages as Email

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Hey Stanford users! Did you know that you can have your voicemail messages automatically sent to your email?

Here’s how:

  1. In a web browser, go to http://myvoicemail.stanford.edu.
  2. After authenticating, enter your 10-digit phone number and your voicemail password (note: NOT your SUNet ID password).
  3. In the navigation menu, click Options.
  4. In the User Preferences menu, click Forward to Email.
  5. In the View User Parameters window, click Edit.
  6. Check the box Forward All Mails Enabled.
  7. To keep a copy of the voicemail in the voicemail system, check the Keep a copy box. This will mean that you can still retrieve voicemail via the phone system. To ONLY access voicemail via email, uncheck the Keep a copy box.
  8. Uncheck the Do not Forward Automatic Message box. If your mailbox contents reach 80% of the quota, the system will send you a notification message. When you get this message, you will need to delete some messages. If your mailbox reaches 100% of its message quota, it will not accept new messages. Leaving this box selected means you will NOT receive system-generated messages such as quota alerts.
  9. In the Forward to Email Addresses box, enter the email address(es) where you want to receive your voicemail. If using multiple addresses, separate them by a comma.
  10. Click Update to save, or Cancel to return to the previous screen without saving.

You will now begin receiving new voicemail messages via email.
