Is there a way to set up the voicemail box to allow the call to go directly to voicemail without waiting for the numerous rings? I have set up my second number for my direct reports to report info on a daily basis and the extra rings is a waste of time. I have the ring default set to the minimum number, wish that there was a option for "0".

thx

Press and hold the "envelope" button until it turns red.

I am looking to have all calls to the number go to voicemail automatically (each and every call). I understand that I can press the envelope button on an individual call and it will force it to voicemail.

thx

Do what I said and ALL calls will go to voice mail.

While not in a call

Press and hold down the envelope button until it turns red.
That is called privacy mode.

This puts the system in "Do Not Disturb" and has been designed for just what you are wanting to do.

or setup the system for anonymous call block and have the caller block caller id using *67, calls will go right to voicemail, no rings
