Would like to be able to set a temporary voicemail greeting, on a schedule, for when our users are out of the office (much like the out of office attendant in Outlook works).  Right now, they have to record over the voicemail greeting stating they are out of the office and then remember to record a new one when they return to the office.  As you can image, people forget.
