Accessing Voicemail Management

To Access Voicemail Management within Agent Setup:

  1. From the Contact Center Settings, select the Voicemail & Call Settings menu.
  2. Choose a category to manage:
    1. Profiles
    2. Mailbox Settings


Voicemail profiles are a common set of configurations that can be assigned to a set of mailboxes. These configurations include determining how many voicemails can be stored in a mailbox, the maximum message duration, how long voicemails are stored before they’re deleted, enabling email notifications, and voicemail forwarding.

You can create profiles that set retention limits of 1 to 100 days or use No Limits to set voicemails not to expire.

Within the Profiles section you'll find the profile rules. To edit an existing profile rule, check the checkbox next to the Profile name and click the Edit icon (Edit pencil.png).

 For information on all possible configurations for these profile rules, see:
