We have a call queue setup with an associated call queue voicemail audio file.
If we try to transfer a caller directly to the call queue voicemail, we encounter the system default voicemail (I can tell it is system default based upon the voice and scripting). I would've expected it to go to the call queue voicemail that we've setup.
To add to the confusion, if a voicemail is left, it does show up under the call queue. The issue is that we need the voicemail they encounter to be the same one that is associated to the call queue and cannot figure out how to solve this.
Does anybody know?
@kmateze , if you are transferring from an IVR or AR(Auto Receptionist), the you need to specify the voicemail greeting to be used else it will use the system default greeting.
If my reply solved your discussion don’t forget to mark reply as the solution. Thanks!
We 've never had the need to forward a call to a Call Queue's voicemail directly, however, I can understand the business case for doing it. I tested it with our setup, and can confirm that it did indeed play the default voicemail greeting, and not the customized greeting set up for Business Hours on the Call Queue, which does indeed play when a call is not answered.
I would suggest that you log a problem with Zoom Support at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/requests/new
@kmateze Kindly check on the call queue Overflow routing during business hours and closed hours which I'm assuming that it is set to Leave Voicemail to Current Extension. If it is, click on Edit then check that Voicemail Greeting is not set to Default. If it is set to Default, hit on Audio Library and select the custom audio you have recorded then click on Use the Audio then Save.
With regards to Call Queue voicemail, using the Zoom App, user can tell if a voicemail received was for the Call Queue by clicking on the Voicemail tab. The voicemail will have a text label like "For Call Queue Name." From a deskphone, there is no way to tell if a voicemail received is for a Call Queue or for user's direct number.

Perhaps you didn't read my reply that I posted prior to yours. I have tested the scenario outlined by @kmateze on our system, and experienced the same results of the default voicemail greeting playing as opposed to the customized overflow greeting which is set on our Call Queue. There is a apparently a bug.
FYI: I received a response from one of Zoom's support prize-winning support reps who didn't comprehend my plain English request with its referenced screenshot attachment, which, as they do in an over-flowerly way, thanked me for my request and gave me detailed instructions from the standard support site on how to set customized voicemail greetings. 🙄
@FORE-Craig Apologies for that. I've added few notes in the ticket for our support team to check further and for the team to be able to understand the issue. As mentioned by @HuckFinn-ZP this appears to be a bug and has been reproduced in a test environment. I was able to test it myself too. They will get to you as soon as updates becomes available. All succeeding updates will be tracked in the ticket. Thanks again for your patience and support.
Good day. I have also tested this in my lab, and I find the same results. The default greeting is playing, and I could play the voicemail in the call queue.
The VM greeting of the call queue can be different depending on where the call originated. E.g., the AR is transferring the call to CQ VM, the VM greeting it will be playing will be the one we set up in AR and not in the call queue.
A good example would be the workaround below that you might want to try while our support team checks the issue.
I created an AR that will be an extension that the user will be dialing if they want to transfer to the VM of the CQ. We need to put the actual VM greeting we wanted to play. In this setup, the user who initiated the transfer should do a "Blind Transfer" to the AR instead of "Transfer to Voicemail."
The direct transfer to CQ voicemail bypasses the VM greeting set up on the CQ, just like the AR transferring the call to CQ VM in the above workaround.
I hope this helps.
Thanks @HuckFinn-ZP for the info! I just want to share that my current configuration if you do a blind transfer the call queue voice-mail is actually encountered. It is only if you do the direct transfer to voice-mail. Additionally, if you do a warm transfer and nobody picks up, the internal user doing the transfer will hear the call queue voice-mail but if you decide to click complete transfer the caller will get the default voice-mail. Just wanted to share!
@kmateze, Thank you for sharing the additional scenarios. It would also be helpful to share it in the support ticket you opened.
Below are the behaviors so far upon my testing which coincides with your testing:
Blind Transfer --> VM greeting - OK
Warm Transfer --> VM Greeting plays to Transfer initiator + Complete Transfer --> Default Greeting
Transfer to Voicemail --> Default Greeting
That is correct; in Blind Transfer to CQ, the voicemail greeting will work, but it will also ring the available members in the Call Queue before transferring it to voicemail.
The workaround I have mentioned is for the users to transfer the call directly to the CQ voicemail with the greeting we need without ringing the CQ members.
Right now I cannot find a setting where we can change the Default Greeting for the CQ, only to the users' Default Greeting (Default Audio Prompt) we do currently have in the portal.
I hope this helps.
Hi @kmateze We believe that we don't need to keep this item open. A feature request has been submitted already for this one for our product team to review. It may take time on when that feature would be available but you can always follow-up with our support team using the ticket reference # you had.
