Web PhoneManager

Pacific University offers staff and faculty a web-based point-and-click
interface into their voicemail settings through a service called
Web PhoneManager.

To access this service, both on- and off-campus, go to https://voicemail.pacificu.edu.
First, log in with your PUNet ID and password then, on the next screen, enter your mailbox number (typically your extension) and your security code.



The Home page displays a simple dashboard for
basic information, like how to access the voicemail system from
on- and off-campus. It may contain other pieces of information
as time goes on, but should not be considered a primary location
for important University or system information.


This tab provides direct access to a user's voicemails, allowing them
to perform common tasks with voice messages like listen, forward, reply,
save, or delete.

Users are able to create custom labels for saved messages as simple
reminders or useful information for other users if being used in a
shared mailbox. This is done by clicking Edit below the message's
title, entering a new label, and pressing Save.

When using the Reply or Forward feature, user's are presented with
an interface that allows them to record a message by calling out to
the phone number in Web PhoneManager Settings and
select various sending options.

The Live Reply option is a callback feature. When selected, users
are prompted with the message sender's phone number to call. This
number can be modified, if necessary (A 1 must be added before the
number if long distance). When OK is pressed, the voicemail system
calls the user's number in Web PhoneManager Settings,
then calls the message sender's number. Once both parties have answered,
the two calls are connected together.

Note: When calling out through this system, the other party will
see the call come from 503-352-6151 - the University's main number.


This tab serves the same purpose as the Inbox tab but for messages
that have been marked "Saved."


This tab serves the same purpose as the Inbox tab but for messages
that have been marked "Deleted."

Messages in the Trash tab will not be permanently deleted until the
user logs out of the Web PhoneManager application. If a message needs
to be recovered, the user can press Undelete to send the message back
to the Inbox.

Personal Settings


The Recordings tab provides users the ability to check their personal
greetings, listen to them, and record new ones. It also provides a
quick way to enable and disable a user's Out-of-Office Greeting.

When handling greetings through the Web PhoneManager, it is important
to note that the system will make calls out to a phone number provided
by the user through the Web PhoneManager Settings menu. For more information
about that option, see the
Web PhoneManager Settings
section below.

To Listen to a Greeting: Select an available greeting, indicated
by a blue microphone icon. Press the Play icon once. The voicemail
system will take a moment to call your designated number or extension and
play back the greeting once the phone is answered.

Please wait until the greeting has finished playing back before
taking any other action

To Record a Greeting: Select the greeting you wish to record. When ready,
press the red Record icon once. The voicemail system will take a
moment to call your designated number or extension. Once the phone is answered,
a short beep will be heard and recording will begin. Record your greeting and
press the Stop icon before hanging up once you are finished. Press OK
to save the greeting, or Cancel to throw the greeting away and start over.

To Enable/Disable the Out-of-Office Greeting: Check or uncheck the box
below the greetings list that says Enable Out-of-Office Greeting. Press
OK to confirm the change.

Call Settings

This tab provides users some extra call handling functions like call
screening and blocking.

and those that are available will only work when the user is called
from the University auto-attendant, not when called directly. If unsure
about the feature's functionality, leave the feature unchecked.

Phone Numbers

This tab allows users the ability to associate multiple phones to their
voice mailbox. Doing so provides quick access to a user's messages when
calling from one of these phones - Rather than being prompted to enter
a mailbox number, the system can recognize a trusted phone and
automatically connect the user to their mailbox.

To Add a Device: Enter the device's 10-digit phone number into the
Telephone Number field. Set the Device Type (see below) and
leave Call Timeout at the default value. Hit OK to confirm.
If the number is long-distance, add a 1 to the front of the number.

    from this phone; Can be used for the voicemail system's
    various call-out features

desk for an extended period of time (vacation, or otherwise) and need
their messages to be managed by another user.

When Message Forwarding is enabled, new messages will immediately get
copied to another user's voice mailbox. It will not automatically
delete messages from the original mailbox.
