Call forwarding in R6

Call forwarding in R6

Call forwarding in R6

Greetings group,

System: V3000 R6_0_49

Request: Users would like to have a button on their 3102 programmed to forward calls to their mobile phones.  The scenario is that the normal call coverage is voice-mail, but when the user goes to lunch they can forward their calls to their mobile phones by pressing a button.

Since Do Not Disturb and the button forward to voice-mail button do in effect the same function, this is not an option.  In other words, the button which looks like it is forwarding to voice-mail is described in the manual to send inbound calls to the call coverage point after 1 ring.  My memory of past NBX OS releases is that it went only to voice-mail.  This was the main difference between this button and Do No Disturb.  Now they have to same function, other than the one ring.

Is there a way via a speed dial, or some sort of feature mapping to achieve a call forwarding toggle via a single button, while maintaining voice-mail as the default call coverage?  Thanks.

RE: Call forwarding in R6

Found a very good work around.  Of course this function can be carried out with the CFWD All feature of the LCD display in R6.  The first time that you use it you must enter a number to be forwarded to, such as a mobile phone number.  From then on this number will populate the field, until you change it.  However, you still must press 8 keys to call the function.  A better solution is to program a button to be CFWD All, which reduces the key strokes to 2.

it's possible to automate during  lunch the cfw towards the mobile phone:

RE: Call forwarding in R6

Thanks for the time route donbru01.  That would work globally or for DIDs, but I was looking more for a per user solution, that would be used dynamically.  I do appreciate the reply though.
