Initial Voicemail Setup

If you are faculty or staff that is assigned your own phone number, then you should have received an email with instruction on how to set up your voicemail (including your initial PIN number). If you did not receive this email or have forgotten your PIN, you can contact IT (see their contact information at the bottom of the page) to have the welcome email resent.

Three-Way Calling


This is the process from the current Yealink deskphones.

When you're on the phone with someone, you can choose to add another person. Press the Conf button (this option will show up at the bottom of the screen). Dial the other person's number, and press Send. After they answer, you'll need to press Conf again, and then all three persons will be participants in the call.

It's possible to have more than three participants. Someone other than the original caller can press Conf on their Yealink phone and add a person, and that person can add another, etc. This can continue to propagate as long as all participants are using on-campus Yealink deskphones.

Once the (at least) three-way call is established, the original caller will have some Manage options such as removing or muting participants.
