The Mitel (formerly known as ShoreTel) client allows you to change forwarding, voicemail, and several other settings without going through on-phone or voice-driven menus. This article details how. If you need information on obtaining the client or its basic functionality, you can use our Mitel Basics article. If you'd like to change your forwarding settings, see our Changing Forwarding Settings with the Mitel Client article.
Getting to Settings
To get to the settings window, click the Connect menu at the top of the client and choose Settings….
There are a number of options that can be selected in your Mitel voicemail, and most can be changed from the Mitel client.
When setting voicemail greetings, it’s important to remember that the greetings are on a per state basis. To change the greeting for a particular state, click on Call Routing.
Then, click the link next to “Voicemail greeting recorded” or “No voicemail greeting reported”.
You can play your greeting with the controls on the top.
Clicking the phone icon will switch recording and playback to your phone. Using the speaker will have the client use your computer for recording and playback.
To record a new greeting, click Record New Greeting.
Click Save Recording to save the recording, and Save to complete the setup.
Voicemail to E-mail
You can use the client to control whether or not you get your voicemails delivered to your e-mail. To do so, click on the Notifications menu.
You can then click on the checkboxes to change the behavior of voicemail to e-mail.
Change your Voicemail Password or Record your Name
To change your voicemail password, select the Voicemail area on the left.
