Email notifications for voicemails


When your Talkdesk account is created, there are two automated tasks that we have already set up for you and that are enabled by default: to send the account creator an email notification every time a call is missed and when a voicemail is left.

Admins however, can add as many new automations as they wish (e.g., notifying agents when a voicemail is assigned to them, when a voicemail transcription is made available, when an agent logs into Talkdesk, etc.), edit or disable these automations at any time.

To edit your voicemails email notifications follow these instructions:

  • Log into your Talkdesk account as an Administrator.
  • Click the "Admin" section [1] at the top of the page.
  • Select the "Integrations" tab [2].
  • Click on the Email Notifier "Settings" button [3]:


  • Click the settings button [4] next to the 'Send email when voicemail is left' automation and select the 'Edit' option:


Note: You can also clone this automation, to preserve the original copy before editing, or simply delete it. However, please note that once deleted you will be forced to recreate it from scratch if ever needed again. Switching the automation off might be a better option in case you don't want it in use now but feel you might need it in the future.

  • Configure the automation according to your business needs.

You can define where you want to receive these emails by typing in as many email addresses as required separated by a comma on the 'To' field [5].

Customize the information that is sent in the email by dragging and dropping the following "Trigger Fields" into your customized email [6]:

  • Voicemail data (i.e., date and time the voicemail was left, voicemail duration, number dialed, dialed extension, agent dialed, etc.)
  • Voicemail recording URL
  • Voicemail transcription
  • Caller’s information (i.e., caller’s name, email, phone number, UUID, company, photo URL, etc.)


You can also configure your "Event Filters" so that emails are only sent when a voicemail is received [7]:

  • For a specific agent
  • On a specific phone number
  • On a specific extension
  • From a specific customer
  • Only during business hours
  • Only outside of business hours

When you have finished, please remember to click "Save" at the bottom of the page to apply your new settings.
