How to set up Voice Drop for New Companies

While on a call though your VanillaSoft  platform, you can select a pre-recorded message to be dropped into a voicemail box. This feature saves you valuable time, and enables you to start making another call while a pre-selected voicemail message is dropped in to the customer’s voicemail.

To enable this feature please call VanillaSoft support at 866-763-8826 option 2 or Submit a Request above.   After your company has been enabled you will see a box under the Contact's phone number that says "Voice Mail".

Note that both a Dialing license and VanillaSoft VoIP (ConnectMeVoice) is required to support Voice Drop.

Each user will now need to complete the following steps to set up their Voice Drop:
