Transfer a Call to Another Person’s Voice Mail

You can transfer a call directly to another CIC client user’s voice mail. You might want to use this feature if the caller wants to communicate with another person who is unavailable to take the call.

Note: The Transfer to Voicemail option may not be available in the Transfer dialog box if you do not have the appropriate rights. You must have the right to use voice mail features in the CIC client in order to transfer a call to another user’s voice mail. Also, you may not be able to transfer a call to another person’s voice mail if you do not have the right to send calls to your own voice mail. If you have questions about rights or voice mail options, see your CIC administrator
