ESI Phone Personal Greetings

To program your personal greetings, press PROGRAM 1.

Sample greeting 1: Hi, this is [name]. I’m away from my desk or on the phone right now; so please either dial zero(or a department number) to reach for immediate assistance, or leave me your name, number and message at the tone and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Sample greeting 2: Also used to transfer a caller to your cell phone Hi, this is [name]. I’m out of the office. You may dial 1 2 2 now for my assistant or, if you prefer, you may leave me a voice message at the tone — I’ll check in regularly — or, if it’s important, either dial 4 now to reach me on my cell phone or dial 2 now to leave me an urgent message that will page me automatically.

From your ESI Feature Phone, press PROGRAM 6 2 1 and enter the telephone number to which you want calls forwarded when you’re off-premises.

Sample greeting 3: Also used to allow a caller to have you paged over the phone speakers Hi, this is [name]. I’m away from my desk at the moment. To have me paged, dial 3 now to reach the operator, dial zero. Otherwise, leave your name and phone number at the beep so I can return your call.
