Answer Schedule Override provides alternate answering for Automated Attendant calls. When enabled, Answer
Schedule Override sends calls to the specified Override Mailbox. The Override Mailbox can be an
Announcement, Call Routing, Directory Dialing, or Subscriber mailbox. You can use Answer Schedule Override to provide
holiday and bad weather closing announcements, for example. Enable override when you want callers to hear
the special announcements; disable override to have the Automated Attendant answer normally. You can
enable Answer Schedule Override from system programming or from the System Administrator Mailbox.
- If the Override Mailbox is an Announcement Mailbox, the outside caller will hear the
recorded announcement. Depending on how the Announcement Mailbox is programmed, IntraMail will
then hang up, reroute the call, or provide additional dialing options.
- If the Override Mailbox is a Call Routing Mailbox, the outside caller will hear the
instruction menu and can dial any options allowed by the associated Dial Action Table.
- If the Override Mailbox is a Subscriber Mailbox, the outside caller hears the mailbox
greeting (if recorded) and can leave a message.
