Group to Voicemail

Group to Voicemail is an application that allows you to send Contact groups directly to Voicemail manually or automatically based on specific schedules. (Tested on Android 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 — but depending on your phone and specific version, your mileage may vary)

Features:

  • Create and manage Contact groups that can sync with your Google account automatically
  • There are currently three action types:
    • Send to Voicemail – Send all Contacts in that group directly to voicemail (don’t ring the phone)
    • Don’t Send to Voicemail – Don’t send all Contacts in that group directly to voicemail (Contacts will still go to voicemail after the normal number of rings)
    • Everyone Else to Voicemail – Send all Contacts but those in the specified group(s) directly to voicemail
  • Create schedules to automatically apply actions to groups
  • Schedules can be created for a variety of scenarios:
    • Span multiple days (ex: from Friday at 5:00pm until Monday at 8:00am)
    • A time range on one day (ex: from 8:00am until 5:00pm on Friday)
    • All day (ex: All day on Thursday — will be in effect from 12:00am until 12:00am the following day)
    • Overnight (ex: from Sunday at 8:00pm until Monday at 7:00am)
    • Repeat days (ex: Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4:00pm to 6:00pm)
  • Color-coded visual cues to specify which groups are currently being sent to voicemail and which schedules are currently active
  • Option to receive a notification anytime a schedule or group status changes.  This provides a quick glance at how many groups are currently being sent to voicemail and how many schedules are currently active.
  • Temporarily disable schedules if you’re doing something different that day/week.

Example Use Cases:

  • Put your co-workers or clients into groups and send them to voicemail on your days off
  • Put your family and closest friends into groups and send all other Contacts to voicemail when you go to sleep
  • Only allow certain Contacts to reach you during your work/class schedule
  • Any other combination of Contacts and Schedules that you can think of 🙂
