Update to ooma Lounge

Post by bw1 » Mon Jun 15, 2009 4:54 am

It looks like there are a couple of changes in the lounge.

The biggest change looks to be that now you can select "Continuous Ring" for blacklisted numbers. Also the wording was changed.

There is no addition of Continuous Ring for ACB, however.

Also, there is a change to calling preferences which just looks like a UI change. It now says Call Forwarding and has a selection for "Multi-Ring" or "Call forward all" instead of a check box to ring phones connected to my ooma system. It doesn't look like there is any functionality change for this. It now mentions "A forwarded call must be accepted by pressing "1" before you will be connected to the caller.".

Yes it was there and I had it selected, but it's gone now. Mine was reset to "sent to voicemail."

Something must not have worked.

You're right, it's gone. Maybe it was "accidentally" released.

Well, continuous ring makes a lot more sense to me than going to voicemail. Who wants to listen to telemarketing drivel? And the added plus is you get to annoy the telemarketer when they can't get through.

On my answering machine, I have an option to either REJECT THE CALL or ANNOUNCEMENT ONLY. I think the message says "Your call is rejected". They always try again with an anonymous call. Now Ooma gets those.

Yep, we had to remove the additional treatments because we discovered a few of our announcement servers had not been upgraded. We're scheduling those to be upgraded within the next week or two and then we'll turn the two new treatments back on.

2nd New Treatment was:

Number Disconnected Message: Callers will hear "<disconnect tone> We're sorry, you've reached a number that has been disconnected or is no longer in service, if you have reached this recording in error, please check the number and try your call again."

Yeah, that's the one I want. It seems ooma has read my mind. Is that the one that sounds like Majel Barrett? It sure sounds like the Star Trek computer voice.

That's the one I've been waiting for too. Then I just need to get some more telemarketers to call me. :)
