Scroll Prev Up Next More

Most Avaya phones have buttons to which functions can be assigned. For some phones, additional buttons can also be added by attaching a button module to the phone.

Default Buttons and Button Numbering

The default button assignment depends on whether the system's Mode is set as Key or PBX.

Key Mode

01-02: Intercom Buttons
The first two buttons are used as Intercom 1 and Intercom 2 buttons for internal calls. This function is automatically assigned to the buttons by the system and cannot be overridden by the system administrator or extension user.

03+: Line Buttons
Buttons 03 and upwards up to the system's Number of Lines setting are used as line appearance buttons for external calls. These cannot be overridden by the extension user.

Other Buttons
Any additional buttons can be used for additional functions. These buttons can be programmed by the system administrator and, for some functions, the extension user.

Button Numbering
All buttons are numbered from 01, from left to right, starting from the bottom row up.

PBX Mode

01-03 (ETR 01-02): Call Appearance Buttons
The first three buttons (two only on ETR phones) are used call appearance buttons for making and answering calls. They can be used for both internal and external calls. This function is automatically assigned to the buttons by the system and cannot be overridden by the system administrator or extension user.

Other Buttons
Any additional buttons can be used for additional functions. These buttons can be programmed by the system administrator and, for some functions, the extension user.

Button Numbering
All buttons are numbered from 01, from left to right, starting from the bottom row up. However for 1400, 9400 and 9500 Series telephones, buttons are numbered from 01 from left to right, starting from the top row downwards.

The menu can operate in either of two ways, depending on whether the phone type is known or not. If the phone type is known, for 1400 Series phones a picture of the phone is used. If the phone type is not known and for non-1400 Series phones, a list of buttons is used.

ALS Programming

Automatic line selection is used to select which available line is used when the extension goes off hook to make a call without the user first pressing a specific line or intercom button, for example if the user just lifts the handset or presses the speaker button. By default all analog line buttons (lowest to highest) and the two intercom buttons are used in that order.

Modify ALS Programming: Default = Off.
If Modify ALS Programming is selected, the order of line selection is displayed and can be edited.
