FortiVoice Phone System Administration Guide

Configuring setups for phone users

The FortiVoice system provides a user portal where phone users can view their call logs, configure and manage their own messaging, and access other features.

This section contains information that you may need to inform or assist your phone users so that they can use the FortiVoice features.

This information is not the same as what is included in the help for FortiVoice user portal. It is included in this guide because:

  • Phone users need to know how to access the FortiVoice user portal and its online help.
  • Phone users need to know the feature codes they can use on the phones.
  • Phone users need to know how to change the voicemail password on the FortiVoice user portal and on the phone.
  • Phone users may be confused if they try to enable a feature that you disabled (such as call waiting or do not disturb).
  • You may need to tailor some information to your network or phone users.

This topic includes:

If you have enabled the operator role for an extension, inform the extension user so that the user can process corporate calls on the user portal. For more information, see Operator Role.

Setting user privileges and preferences

The call features each phone user can use is controlled by the user privilege and preferences settings associated with the user’s extension. You may need to inform users of the features that they can use.

Setting the feature codes

By default, the FortiVoice unit has feature codes for users to access certain features by dialing the codes. You can go to Service > Feature Code > Feature Code and double-click a feature name to modify its code and description, but that does not change the mapping between the code and the feature.

For details, see Modifying feature access codes.
