•Ring Pattern: Default = 1.
Selects the ring pattern that should be used for the call when alerting on a user extension. The available patterns depend on the phone type.
•Abbreviated Ringing: Default = Active.
When active on an ETR or a Avaya digital station, if a user is already connected to a call, any additional call will give just a single quiet ring. Note that for additional calls alerting on line appearance buttons, the Immediate, Delayed Ring or No Ring settings of the button still apply.
•Call Coverage Ring: Default = 2 (10 seconds). On Norstar systems, default = 4 (20 seconds).
Programmable buttons set to Call Coverage can be used to switch call coverage on or off for a user. When on, calls that ring unanswered for this number of rings are redirected to alert on a covering extension. Ensure that this setting is set lower than the users VMS Cover Ring if using Automatic VMS Cover.
•Call Waiting Extension: Default = Not Assigned.
If Assigned, on an analog extension, when the user is on a call, an additional call will cause a tone to be heard as part of the existing call.
•Automatic VMS Cover: Default = Assigned.
If Assigned, voicemail is used to answer calls to the user that have rung for the VMS Cover Ring time. This setting is ignored for any extension configured as a loudspeaker paging extension.
•Transfer Return Extension: Default = None, Software level = 6.1+.
Set the destination for transferred calls that ring unanswered for longer than the Transfer Return Ring setting. Note that if a door phone or paging extension is selected, the call will continue ringing at the transfer destination rather than returning.
•VMS Cover Ring: Default = 3 (15 seconds), Range = 0 to 9.
If Automatic VMS Cover above is assigned, this value sets how long a call alerts the user's extension before it is redirected to voicemail.
•For Release 6.1+, the option 0 for immediate voicemail is available. 0 is the only value usable for phantom extensions. If selected it has the following effects.
•For a call that would have otherwise have alerted at the extension, the call now goes immediately to voicemail.
•If the extension has call forwarding set, the forwarded call will continue ringing at the forwarding target rather than going to voicemail.
•If the extension is the target for another extension's call forwarding, the call will go immediately to the forwarding extension's voicemail.
•Intercom Dial Tone: Default = Regular.
This setting allows selection of which dial tone is used for intercom (internal) calls. Regular matches the dial tone used by the phone system. Machine matches the normal CO dial tone.
•Distinctive Ringing: Default = Active.
This setting is used for analog extensions only. If active, the phone will use, if supported, different ring patterns to indicate internal, external and recall calls.
•Hotline Alert Number: Default = Blank.
If a number is entered here, when the extension goes off-hook by simply lifting the handset or pressing a speaker button (rather than first selecting a line or intercom button), this number is called.
•Privacy Enabled: Default = Off. On Norstar systems, default = On
If off, when connected to an external call on a particular line, other users with a line appearance for that line are able to join that call. If on, other user cannot join calls. A user can switch privacy on/off using a programmable button set to the Privacy feature.
•Override Line Ringing: Default = Off. Software level = 6.1+.
For each line, unique line ringing settings can be applied to be used with incoming calls. They are overridden if the user's Override Line Ringing setting is enabled. BST phones always override line ringing regardless of this setting.
The Automatic VMS Cover and VMS Cover Ring settings above control whether and when voicemail is used to answer calls. The settings below control other aspects of voicemail operation for the user.
•Voicemail Code: Default = Blank. Range = Blank or 1 to 15 digits.
This code is used to control access to the mailbox to collect messages. The mailbox user can change the code after they enter the mailbox by dialing *04.
•Voicemail Email: Default = Blank.
When the user has a new message they can be emailed with an alert or a copy of the message, see Voicemail Email Mode below. Use this field to enter their email address in the format name@domain. This option requires the system to have been configured with SMTP server settings.
These numbers are used to allow caller's to select to be transferred to another extension instead of leaving a message.
