•Hold Disconnect Time: Default = 500ms
Also known as Disconnect Clear or Reliable Disconnect. This is a method used by the analog line provider to signal that the call has ended.
•Coverage Destination: Default = None. System Mode = Key System
This option sets where incoming calls should alert in addition to alerting on those extension that have a line appearance button programmed for the line. When the phone system is in night service mode, calls alert at the members of the Night Service group.
•Unique Line Ringing: Default = 1. Software level = 6.1+.
Selects the ring pattern that should be used for calls when alerting on an extension. Calls forwarded, sent to call coverage or to a hunt group will always use the line ring pattern. Calls direct to an extension will use the line ringing pattern unless the user has Override Line Ringing set. Not used for calls presented to the user as a member of the Operator group. This feature is also not used for BST phones.
