 In 2015, the Personal Auto Attendant for each extension was enhanced with a feature that allows you to disable the ability to leave a message.  IF you disable to ability to leave a message, and use the options in the Personal Auto Attendant, it effectively operates like an auto attendant, minus a few features like schedule, etc.   You can assign it as a new extension, and you could give it a name rather than numeric extension number, and give them access to that extension for their auto attendant, giving them full access to that particular extension only.   You could get creative and use the schedule for the extension to forward directly to the voicemail during required time of day with the schedule, and forward to other scenarios at different times.  This addition really changes how you can use these extensions with voicemail.
