Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Filtering calls directly to voicemail, part of Google Voice Essential Training (2015).
- You can filter calls directly to voicemail,…that is, none of your phones have to ring…but you can still get your messages.…To do that, click the "gear" icon and choose "settings."…Change to the "calls" tab.…Place a check box next to "enable do not disturb."…"Do not disturb" mode will instantly be enabled…and now, anybody that calls…your Google Voice phone number…will be sent directly to voicemail.…You can still get emails and text notifications…about those calls, you just won't have…any of your phones ringing.…
"Do not disturb" mode will be on until you turn it off.…To turn it off, you can either click "disable now"…on the top, right-hand side of the screen…or you can simply uncheck "enable do not disturb."…It is possible to have it turn itself off.…To do that, place a check box…directly underneath where you enabled it.…You can have it automatically end…in a set amount of minutes, hours, or days.…Simply put in your option…and it will automatically turn itself off.…
Unlike other Google products…there's no save button when you're in the preferences.…
