BARN Internal Phone System

BARN Phone System

Each studio is provided a phone and extension for the public to contact you. You have the option to listen to your voicemail in the studio, via an email alert that is sent to the Lead or you can call a special number from outside BARN. 

Emailed Alert: The system will email your studio lead email account as soon as a voicemail is recorded on your extension. You can listen to the voicemail by logging in directly to your *studio*[email protected] email account. Please note that listening to the voicemail in your email does not delete it from your studio phone. 

After receiving this email, you also can go directly to your voicemail inbox by calling a special number from any phone outside of BARN to reach your studio internal voicemail.

From outside Barn: Call 206-502-2345 and press 1 to access your voicemail remotely. You will hear a prompt that says “Comedian Mail” (odd, I know) and then a prompt to enter your studio extension. It will then prompt you to enter the 4 digit numeric password (if one was set).

You can then listen to all your voicemail. To hear the “message envelope” that gives you the day and time the call comes in and the phone number, touch 33. If you do not delete the message (touch 7 to delete), it will remain on your phone in the studio.

In the Studio: Directions on accessing your voicemail is posted near the phone. Press *98 and then enter your studio 4 digit numeric password. Follow the verbal prompts to hear the voicemail. To hear the ‘timestamp’ of the voicemail, press “33”. This will give you the date, time, and the phone number of the caller.

Wild Apricot Database


Read-only Admin Access to Wild Apricot Database

Studio Leads and Programming Coordinators, can be set up for view only access to our database. This will enable you to view enrollment for your classes or any contact information about a student. The contact information available (emails, phone numbers, financial information) is private and contact information should not be exported and used for non BARN purposes.

Please go through the front office to have staff contact the registrants in regards to any class topics. This is in order to maintain consistency and a professional front. It is always best to have the emails officially come from BARN rather than a personal email account. Staff uses the Wild Apricot database email features in order to track when emails were delivered and if the recipient opened the email. When it is done this way, each class has its own record of what was emailed to the registrants.

Admin Read Only Access is assigned after you have completed a 15 minute training. Please send requests to Program Director, Jess Henderson at [email protected].
