Call direct to another users voicemail from VVX

In my SFB client I can right click a user on my contact list and select Call  >  Voice mail.  

 

Can this be done on the VVX phone?

 

I'm helping a client who can do something similar on their Cisco PBX.  Users can dial * and then 4 digits it calls the other user's voicemail box directly.  I'm trying to figure out if this is possible on the VVX phones.

 

Thanks

Re: Call direct to another users voicemail from VVX

This is helpful if the contact is a pinned favorite.  Is it possible to do it without having the contact as a pinned favorite?  For example you can't just dial * and then 4 digits or some quick dial method that would work for an entire organization as long as you knew their extension?

Hello medlhuber,

This is something you would need to ask Microsoft. The only way we can do it is to search for a contact and then display the details.
