This feature should only be used during initial system configuration before any other button programming has been performed. If used at any other time, it will override that other button programming.
Use this feature to determine the number of outside lines that should be automatically assigned to buttons on all extensions. For example, entering 06 means that all extensions are assigned lines 01 through 06. For DS and ETR phones, the lines are assigned to the buttons after the intercom (key system mode) or call appearance buttons (PBX system mode). For BST phones the buttons used will depend on the phone model.
•By default the system will assign either 5 lines or, if installed, the number of analog trunks installed when the system is first started.
•You can use this procedure to limit the number of lines that are automatically assigned to all extensions. For example, if there are ten lines connected to the system, you can use this procedure to set the number of lines to eight, so that only the first eight lines are assigned to all system extensions. You can then use Line Assignment to assign lines 9 and 10 to specific extensions.
•To change line assignments without affecting other extensions and settings, use Line Assignment.
•On systems running in key system mode, Automatic Line Selection for all extensions is updated to match the same set of lines in sequence followed by the intercom lines.
•If an extension is assigned as a doorphone extension, its automatic line selection is reset to select intercom buttons first.
•Key System Mode Only
