Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

You need to enter and configure what are called 'Time-Sensitive Greetings' or

Time Sensitive Greetings

on your Vodavi system. That is a 'greeting type' - the other types are




and Busy. There are nine time slots to use in the system, for time-sensitive greetings.

For instance, if you wanted to change the greeting for your own voice mail box:

  • Access your voice mail box.
  • Press "8" (personal options).
  • Press "1" (to edit greeting types).

and from there according to prompts, Time-Sensitive Greeting being hopefully mentioned as one of the types.
