REMINDER – Deletion of individual PACs; changes in voicemail services

In late August, Computing Services began phasing out individual Personal Access Codes (“PACs”) for faculty and staff for long-distance calling. Instead of assigning individual PACs to each employee, each department has been assigned a 6-digit access code that is to be used by all employees of that respective department for work-related long-distance calling. Now that departmental PACs have been in use for a couple of months, Computing Services will begin deleting individual PACs on November 1st.

In addition, current voicemail services have been modified to provide Voicemail-to-Email service to new on-campus faculty and staff by default. This service delivers voicemail messages directly to a faculty or staff member’s Adams email inbox as an audio file attachment, allowing the employee to listen to their voice messages on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. This service also permits forwarding or archiving of these voicemail messages just like a typical email message.

Computing Services has plans to deprecate the old method around the holiday break, so if you still receive voicemails directly on your office phone, we encourage you to submit a work ticket to Computing Services to take advantage of the Voicemail-to-Email service. To do so, access the workorder system here: Scroll down to select the “Voicemail” menu option and submit your ticket, being sure to include both your office phone extension and ASU email address. Closer to the end of the semester, Computing Services will begin working with those folks who have not made the transition over to Voicemail-to-Email service.
