To set up Google Voice as your voicemail:
For step-by-step instructions for using Google Voice as your voicemail, refer to the IT KnowledgeBase article Google Voice as your voicemail.
You must follow the 3-step process completely to avoid issues:
1. Set up a local* phone number in your DePauw Google account. These are provided by Google and often (though not always) in the 765-276-xxxx range, which is a local Greencastle call.
2. Forward your office phone to the phone number created in step 1.
3. Finalize your Google Voice settings. ***VERY IMPORTANT STEP!***
*At times, Google expends all its local numbers for our area. Usually, they are able to acquire more within a week or two when this happens. If you don’t want to wait until a local number becomes available go ahead and select a long distance number. The small long distance cost for leaving/getting a voicemail message will negligible, generally only 5-10 cents per message.
If you choose not to setup voicemail, please consider forwarding your phone to your assistant or your department’s main contact number so others can leave a message for you.
