Zoom phone Voicemail active when logged out?

Hi

 

we are new to zoom phone.

 

Testing our setup, calling into our zoom phone number, there was a dialtone.

 

 But no user was logged in.

 

Should the zoom phone not ring if we are not signed in?

 

our set up is shared line. We tested during normal business hrs. Our overflow is voicemail. 

We logged out to see if the inbound call would go straight to voice mail which is what we would like.

 

Thanks

 

Richard

Hello richard, 
there are two options:
a.  Users can toggle off all "Call Handling" in their profile "User Settings"
b. Users can set themselves in DND (Do not Disturb)

Kind Regards

For Queues we have a "toggle" feature".
Queue members can toggle on/off their availability to take queue calls. If all members set themselves unavailable then incoming calls will go directly to the overflow destination.

Thank you perfect.

Hi Nico!

I should have asked a quick follow up question please!

If all users are logged out, why does zoom phone still ring?!

Should it still ring?

Thanks!

Hello Richard, 
Yes that is as per current product design. 
When users have the "Call Handling" turned ON and they are not in DND,  callers are played with ringing tone for the "Max Wait Time", then calls are connected to Voicemail. This happens even if users are logged out, because the server in the backend is trying to reach mobile devices through push notifications.
Are you using Zoom Phone App on mobile devices and PCs? or PCs only?
Kind Regards

Hi Nico

Thank you,

'This happens even if users are logged out, because the server in the backend is trying to reach mobile devices through push notifications.'

Gotcha.

We'd prefer there is no incoming ringtone (from a customer perspective, they don't get 30 seconds or more of ringtones when there are no users logged in). 

99% of the time we are on PCs only.

We use call queues but I guess using shared lines or groups would make no difference?

'"Call Handling" turned ON and they are not in DND'

- please confirm this is the only practical solution?

- I can't find either of these settings on the PC Zoom app , do we need to login via zoom.com to adjust these (hoping not!)

Thanks again for your insight,

Richard

 

How can we stop the server in the backend trying to reach mobile devices through push notifications? Ie stop the caller waiting for no answer when we are all DND / logged out?

we are on PCs and using call queue that overflows after 30 secs to voicemail.

Just a 2nd message and also really appreciate an answer to the previous one!

After 45 minutes of testing, the person ringing IN still hears a ring tone despite

- all users logged out

- all users set as 'away'

Richard, 
once users are set to "Do Not disturb" , incoming calls will go directly to Voicemail.

Thank you, I can’t explain why we tried talking out of the call queues. being unavailable and logging out… I suspect there was a user accidentally logged in on a mobile phone.

appreciate your help and I’m glad we haven’t missed anything, 

it does now go to voicemail when we are unavailable.
