A button set to this function allows the user to set or clear an absent message for display on their phone. When set, the absent message is also displayed on other extensions when they call the user.

If an extension already has a button set to this function, creating another button with this function will automatically clear the setting from the existing button.

This function is only supported on a button that includes LED/LCD indicator. The indicator is lit when the function is enabled.

If the user has this feature enabled, removing this button will turn the feature off.

The button can also be used to check the absent message setting of other users. When pressed, pressing the Auto Dial - Intercom button of another user will display that users current absent message setting (alternately select Insp and dial the user's extension number).

Not supported on ETR6 and 1403 phones. Not supported on BST phones without a display and soft keys.
