X16 Holiday Greeting Setup

The XBLUE X16 automated attendant includes an optional holiday greeting. Programming is accomplished through the system setup, which is located in the mail system. Scroll down to Holiday Mode and make the appropriate settings in the following areas:

NOTE: The holiday end time and date MUST be set prior to setting the holiday.

  • Holiday End – This is the time that the system will stop playing the recorded holiday outgoing greeting.
  • Holiday Start – This is the time that the system will begin playing the recorded holiday outgoing greeting.
  • Holiday OGM – This is the greeting that plays during the holiday period.
  • Holiday Mode – When set to On, the system will play a special holiday OGM. If set to Off, the system will follow the standard day/night or weekend schedule.

NOTE: If you have trouble setting the Holiday Start Date and Time:

  • First program the Start Date year as 2012 ("12") save it, then,
