The Group Voicemail Extension allows a specified group of Users to share a common voice mailbox. When a voicemail message is left on the Group Voicemail extension, a notification is sent to the Message Inboxes of all the Users who are assigned the Group Voicemail extension. Each User can receive a separate copy of the voicemail or share a single copy of the message. In the latter case, the first person to retrieve the message "owns" it and the message disappears from all other Group Voicemail members' inboxes.
