Quick Reference Guide
A two-page reference guide on using the voice mail system is available via this link.
Voice Mail to Email Notification
When you first get your voicemail box, it is set up so that you will get an email notification every time a voicemail is left for you. However, you still need to periodically log in to the voicemail system (see directions above) to clean out your mailbox or it will stop accepting messages.
If you want to disable email notifications, you can use the Mitel Connect software (see below to install) to make that change. To enable or disable, run Mitel Connect, go to Option, choose Voice Mail and set your desired Notification delivery options and an email address, if necessary.
Setting up Call Forwarding
It is possible to configure your Shoretel/Mitel phone to forward calls to another extension or to a cell phone.
You Call Forwarding options will save, so if you've already configured Call Forwarding, you can jump to steps 9 & 10 to turn it on or off.
Press the Options button on your phone.
When prompted for a password, enter your voicemail password, then click OK.
Select Call Handling, then click Edit.
Select Custom, then click Edit.
You can now select to forward "Always", or "After X Rings or Busy"

Click OK to set it to Always forwarding mode.
For "After X Rings or Busy"

Click OK to set it to NoAnswer/Busy forwarding mode.
Click OK, then click Done to exit the Options menu.
To enable call forwarding, click the Mode button on your phone, and select "Custom".
To disable call forwarding, click the Mode button (it might say "Custom" to indicate it is in Custom mode), and select Standard.
Mitel Connect software
You may optionally install the Mitel Connect (formally called ShoreTel Communicator) software on a Windows or MacOS computer. The software allows to view a history of incoming and outgoing calls, manage your voicemail box from your computer, place calls using the directory (and a phone) and configure some options for your phone. Directions for installing Connect are in the Mitel Software Install Instructions document at this link. Note that Mitel Connect only works while on-campus.
