Unified Communications (Voicemail): Setup Easy Access to Voicemail with an Alias
From within the web portal interface you're able to set numbers, such as your cellphone or home number, that can easily access your University voicemail without having to enter your mailbox number.
This means that when calling your voicemail box from a number that you have set as an Alias you will be prompted directly for your pass-code without having to enter your mailbox number first.
- Log into the Web Portal
- Click on Messaging in the Options menu on the left.
- Once on the Messaging screen select the option for Aliases.
- Once on the Aliases screen click the Add button. This brings up the Aliases Add screen.
- In the blank box next to *Phone Number: add your 10 digit phone number without spaces or formatting.
- Click the OK button to finalize your changes.
- To access your voicemail from the entered number dial 612-626-0001 (507-258-8888 for Rochester) and, if prompted, enter your pass-code.
