|Users can screen (listen to) voice mail messages as they are being left in their mailbox.|
Live Call Screening allows a display keyset extension user to listen to (screen) a voice mail message as it is being left in their mailbox. Live Call Screening emulates a standard home answering machine — in addition to providing more control when handling incoming messages. Similar to Personal Answering Machine Emulation, the extension user can listen as the message is being left, intercept the call, or end the screen and have the message recorded privately. Unlike Personal Answering Machine emulation, Live Call Screening does not require the extension user to forward their calls immediately to voice mail. The telephone display automatically shows the Live Call Screening soft key options as soon as the recording begins.
When enabled, Live Call Screening will broadcast the caller’s message as soon as the mailbox Greeting completes. Additionally, if the extension user intercepts (answers) the screened call, the first portion of the message is automatically erased from the extension’s mailbox.
Any caller that can leave a message can have their call screened by the extension user.
If extensions share a Group Mailbox, any number of extensions in the group can screen an incoming message. The group extensions can monitor the incoming message simultaneously. If any group member answers the call (i.e., intercepts the incoming message), the remaining group members are immediately disconnected.
