ENABLE VERSATURE SMARTANSWER
Receive a warning message before answering a business call on your personal device.
Forwarding calls from the office to a personal number? Remove the hazard of mis-answering using Versature SmartAnswer. When you have SmartAnswer enabled, you will be alerted by a voice prompt before the call is connected to let you know it is coming from your Versature extension. From there, you will have the option to press 1 to accept the call or hang up to reject the call.

- Test that your Versature SmartAnswer is working by calling yourself from an external number.
- When the Versature message is informing you of an incoming call, the caller will continue to hear a regular ringtone until 1 is pressed.
- If you did not request to use Versature SmartAnswer and are receiving the message prompt as an error, call our Versature Support Team by dialing 611 on a Versature device, 877-498-3772 from an external phone, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
