New Departmental Telephone Reporting
Since we are no longer billing for telephone or long distance as a separate monthly charge, it doesn’t make business sense to keep up with the extensive reporting package we use to manage. We have simplified it down to one report. Please click here for instructions.

New Voice Mail Service Announcement
OIT is working on a project to replace Princeton's voice mail service. The new service, Microsoft Unified Messaging (UM), integrates voice mail, e-mail and calendaring services. As a telephone coordinator for your department, you are receiving this notice in advance of the general campus community.
OIT is moving University departments to the new UM service on a rolling schedule between March and May of this year. You will receive an e-mail message with more details approximately two weeks in advance of your department’s scheduled move to UM.
An information session is being offered to introduce you to the new unified messaging service, including voice mail service. The session will also provide an overview of the new processes for requesting and changing voice mail service in your department. The session, titled “Telephone Coordinator Information Session – New Voicemail,” is being offered on Thursday, March 1 and Tuesday, March 6.
You may sign up online for either session at www.princeton.edu/training (instructions are provided below).
Before then, it is important to know that voice mail messages saved in the current voice mail system cannot be moved to the new service. If you (or individuals in your department) have voice mail messages that must be saved, you can convert the voice mail to audio files and have them sent to your e-mail account, where they can be saved. See, ‘ Saving Voice Mail Messages ’ for instructions.
Thank you so much for supporting OIT Telephone Services in this effort. We look forward to introducing you to the new UM service at the information sessions in March.
To sign up for either UM information session:
· Click the OIT Technology Training link in the left menu.
· In the Filter section, choose “Telephone Coordinator” for Category.
· Click the class name of the class in which you wish to register.
