Multi-Language Unity Connection Greetings, Busy, Unavailable Message

Multi-Language Unity Connection Greetings, Busy, Unavailable Message

Today, we are going to extend the call flow with a different requirement. Last Time the requirement was as follow.
“We have CUCM v10.0 integrated with Cisco Unity. The requirement is – In case the customer knows the extension and dials in the extension and the called person is busy on another line then “please hold track.wav” is to be played; in case the called party is not available to take the call the then “unavailable track.wav” is to be played and after the end of the track the caller should be able to leave a voicemail if he/she intends to”
Now my blog follower has asked for a change in the setup and the requirements are as follow. I have created the scenario in two different setup i.e., Dial by Name and Dial by Extension. I have already published a post Dial By Name and the below post will talk about Dial By Extension.
