Holiday Break Voicemail Greetings

This is a reminder to change your voicemail greeting to accommodate your schedule during the break.  An Extended Absence Greeting is ideal for breaks.  Your Personal Greeting is reinstated as soon as the Extended Absence Greeting is deleted.  You will be prompted to delete or retain when you access your voice mailbox.

Instructions:

  1. Call the system and enter your password
  2. Press 4 – Personal Options
  3. Press 3 – Greetings
  4. Press 2 – Extended Absence Greetings
  5. Listen to the instructions
  6. Press * to exit until you hear “Good-Bye”.

This will enable callers to decide if they should still leave you a message.  If you have any questions or need assistance in changing your message, please call the Telecommunications Office, x6261 or email lmccabe@gustavus.edu.
