Hi Ritesh,

This is most possible;

What Cisco Unity Connection Plays Before and After Each Message

Before playing each message, you can specify whether you want Cisco Unity Connection to play information about the message and the message sender, including the recorded name and/or extension of a user, the phone number (ANI or caller ID) of an outside caller, a time stamp, the message number and the message duration. After playing each message, you can specify whether Connection plays the time stamp. Connection can play all, none, or a combination of the available information about a message and its sender before and after each message.

In Cisco Unity Connection, you may configure the same options after playing each message as you may configure before playing each message. You can specify whether Connection can play information about the message and the message sender, including the recorded name and/or extension of a user, the phone number (ANI or caller ID) of an outside caller, a time stamp, the message number, and the message duration.

For receipts, you cannot modify what Connection plays, and the information that Connection plays differs slightly. Whether Connection plays the time stamp and reason for a receipt before or after the list of recipients depends on how many recipients are associated with the receipt, as follows:

 

One recipient

Time stamp and reason are played after the recipient name.

More than one recipient

Time stamp and reason are played before the recipient list.

Do the applicable procedure. Note that when you update an individual user account or a template, you can also specify what Connection plays after a message.

Users can also use the Connection Messaging Assistant to specify what Connection plays before and after a message.

Sender’s ANI

Dear Rob sir,

Instead of hearing Sender's ANI / Mobile No, I hear name "VM_<name>". I have 13 different VM Profiles. I hear 13 different names instead of Mobile No. Please suggest where should I troubleshoot.

Ritesh Desai

Hi Ritesh,

We need to determine what is being passed to CUC on the unanswered calls to see if the outside CLID/Ani is coming through properly. The best way is to use this great tool from the awesome Unity Tools suite;
