Just going through the list. Entirely out of ignorance as I haven’t run into many of these issues. I still thing the group voicemail implementation on GS is weird but, I might address my complaints at the end.
Maximum number of people in a group. I just added 96 extensions to a test group. That the largest customer I’ve got so, I couldn’t test more. I was not able to test if all 96 phones would actually ring. So, if you’re having the same issue, I’d like to know. If your issue is that the software wouldn’t let you add the extensions to a group vm, well, that might be resolved.
Default greeting. I think you’ve acknowledged that you can dial *98, enter the group VM, enter the password and update the recording. So, I’ll leave this.
Delete Voicemails that have been put in boxes. YES YES YES!!!, I’m 100% in agreement with you. This is basically a non starter as someone has to log in once in a while to delete them manually. 7,6,7,6,7,6,7,6,7,6,7. It’s not actually hard and you can clear about a hundred messages per minute. Still, come on GS.
Had to fly to powercyle equipment… https://amzn.to/2O1Gbbr This is a budget device that you can log into the flip the switch remotely. I know, you couldn’t have know in advance and GS should just make equipment that works. However, I come from a Mitel background and, if you ever want to meet a group of people who really and truly think their P00P don’t stink, go to a Mitel event. I learned about the IP power bars due to the need to remotely reboot gear that I’m told shouldn’t need rebooting.
I don’t fully understand your point about the watchguard. Are you expecting the UCM to manage the connection? watchguard is great for openVPN because it has the processor overhead and memory to support huge numbers of connections, well, the right sized watchguard anyway. I probably just misunderstood your point but, I’d love to understand if you feel like restating.
Regarding the fix. Right now, this is tested by me. If my extension is assigned to a group voicemail, and a message is left, the system will put that group voicemail in my extension VM and turn on the message waiting light. If I press the message button and press 1, the system will play back messages. If the message came from a ring group, it will tell me which ring group number only. It does not tell me the group voicemail but, basically, I don’t see that as an issue for me, with my system, the group voicemail matches the ring group. So, my sales ring group goes to my sales group voicemail. I’m not sure how long this feature has been around but I tested to confirm right now and it’s working. I’ve got a couple ring groups, so, I’m going to make a little printing out with each ring group number and the name of the ring group for easy reference.
Still, I cannot confirm the maximum number of extensions the system will ring, even though I could add 96 extension to the ring group and it’s exceedingly frustrating that there isn’t a check mark box or some easy way to tell the system to delete the message after it’s been moved to the associated VM boxes.
