hi Tom, That is the default behavior. But, I'm pretty sure that can be disabled on the back end. It would require reaching out to support to get a ticket opened.

yes, this use-case does some up from time-to-time. "How do I know who's setup their VM boxes, or not?" Unfortunately, there isn't a good report for this (yet) outside of professional services custom work. But, here's something that might help a little. It's not going to get you the exact information ...

"Get Digit" is the preferred object now. From what I've heard internally, "Menu" is being depreciated. It has to remain in the picklist because some legacy scripts still have it. Bascially "get digit" is an object you place just below a SAY or PLAY object. For example, if the PLAY object has an audio ...

hi Pat. Good to hear from you. An IT admin has less permissions and can't affect things like PBX, company info, recordings. They mostly only have reign over user info, call flow, features. Here's what an IT admin access looks like ------------------------------ Steve O'Neal Sr. Deployment Engineer ...

Not positive if this will get you what you want, but consider it a suggestion. What if you used the Analytics for CC --> Detailed reports --> Interactions. Then when building the report use only Path Summary = No Path and/or Ended in Script. I apologize if I'm misunderstanding or you've already tried ...

hi Mark, I am currently working with a large customer who has many Chromebooks (over 700). They are able to use the web version on the Chromebook. And, I'm assuming on a Windows machine using the same network topology, the calls are OK?

hi David, the use-case you describe makes a lot of sense. Whereas I don't know where the roadmap is with allowing group VM msgs to appear in the Work App. There *might* be a feature that could help. You can contact support and ask them to enable "Group e-mail notification". With this feature enabled, ...

hi Warren, Part of the 8x8 high availability infrastructure is that all customer phone systems run both an Active and Backup. In the event that something becomes a problem on the ACTIVE system, an immediate failover to the BACKUP takes place. In some cases the data on the BACKUP may not be completely ...

Plantronics Savi 740. Lightweight and super range. Because it's DECT, I can walk all over the house while I'm on a call. I can even walk out to check the mailbox. It has dual batteries which allow me to switch to a refreshed battery even in mid-call. ------------------------------ Steve O'Neal Sr. ...

as far as pro-tips go, I'll add my 2cents. Having helped many people with implementations involving ATA's for paging. It's VERY helpful if you have quick access to an analog telephone set. Having an analog telephone handy when trying to test and troubleshoot can save a lot of aggravation. Doesn't ...

ha! Paul! I knew about some of the formatting options, but not that one. Good one. I had to look it up. And, in case anyone else want to know what the available Chat formatting options are >click here< ------------------------------ Steve O'Neal Sr. Deployment Engineer 8x8 Center of Excellence ...

Generally, the answer is if it's not on the list of devices in the Admin Console (under Add device Model) , then it requires a custom solution (I didn't see it on the list). If it's only a few phones, in my opinion, totally not worth it. Now, if it's 100s of phones and you have a big investment, then ...

that's some powerful stuff there Paul. Thank you for sharing. One thing I've always wondered about. Regarding your point #2. - Ensuring the VLAN from which you're conducting the Network Utility. If I have a voice VLAN just for desk phones​ and the only way you can get on that voice VLAN is by being ...

Excellent, valuable information Paul. Two points in your list I'd like to comment on: 2.5 "apply to ALL...." - that's a good reminder. We often get hyper-focused on the Router or Firewall appliance and forget that further inside our LAN could be other devices with timers of their own! 9.1 "Loss ...

Network - that's actually a common question from customers. I'm not a security pro, but I believe the fact that we don't have external SIP URIs is related to the security of the 8x8 infrastructure. Great question though! ------------------------------ Steve O'Neal Sr. Deployment Engineer 8x8 ...

I'm with you on this one, Cheyenne! I believe work hours should have a boundary. Obviously, special circumstances warrant some out-of-hours work. But, as much as I can, I focus on a a clear delineation between work time vs. family time. If you need me after 6pm don't expect me to respond to a ping on ...

Here's a super short tutorial which may save you a lot of confusion. There's a common mis-use of the term "Voice Mail". Users, and even some administrators, use the word as a blanket description of every aspect of the Auto Attendant, IVR, and voice messaging. Here's a frequent example: "I need ...

Pat! Welcome! Good to see you again! My opinion is that different user segments consume adoption in different ways. Some want printed material, some want video, and some prefer hands-on instructor-led. So, in a perfect world you make all three types available. (I'm sure you've thought of this). ...
