Unified Communications - Automated Voicemail?

Posted on 2014-11-10
Last Modified: 2014-11-28

We've been asked whether we could provide an automated voicemail message for our users. The challenge we face is that our organisation requires us to set a new voicemail message every day stating the date.

Is it possible to  Exchange to set a standard voicemail for everyone and get it to insert the date and name of each user?

We run Exchange 2010 and Lync 2013 in our organisation

In short, without some kind of custom code to merge wav files together and then change the voicemail for each user, I really don't see a way for this to happen.

By default Voicemail is set the name of user who is unavailable.
The greeting message is according to your script that you run.
For changing Greeting message, you can check below link

I'm sorry Mai, but Jack is asking for an Automated way to create a voicemail for every single user of their location, and to make it so that it includes the date in it, not how to use or create a voicemail greeting in the traditional way.
