Voicemail - Managing Message Notification

Last Updated: 04/03/2017

Cisco Unity Connection can call a phone or pager to notify you of new messages.

You can turn notifications on and off, and change notification phone numbers for your home phone, work phone, mobile phone, and a pager.

Turning Notification to Devices On or Off

You can turn notification on and off for your home phone, work phone, mobile phone, and a pager. Turning a notification device off does not delete its settings. To turn notifications on or off:

  1. Call the voicemail system and log in with your 5 digit extension and PIN (consult Voicemail Basic Functions for more information).
    • Voicemail system number: 5-6245 (5-MAIL) on-campus or 303-735-6245 off-campus
  2. At the Main menu, press “4” for Setup Options, then “2” for Message Settings, and then “1” for Message Notification.
  3. After Voicemail announces your notification status, follow the prompts to turn notification on or off for a pager, home phone, work phone, or mobile phone.

Changing Notification Phone Numbers

You can change the notification number for your home phone, work phone, mobile phone, and a pager.

For on-campus phone numbers, enter an extension. For external phone numbers, begin with “8” and enter the full 10-digit off-campus number. For long-distance numbers, include “1” and the area code.  Use the # key to add 1-second pauses, as necessary. To change notifiacation phone numbers:
