auto ringdown on idle line

auto ringdown on idle line

auto ringdown on idle line

Looking to see if there is a way to program an analog station to ring another extension after the receiver has been picked up and nothing dialed after a certain amount of time.


RE: auto ringdown on idle line

yes it called a hot line destination make an entry on the abbreviated dialing personal list for this extension, set it to where you want it to ring too, next on the station form on page 3 or 4 go to abbreviated dialing go to list 1 and define it as personal next scroll down to hot line destination and enter 1, so now when phone is picked up it will look to the personal abbreviated dialing list entry 1 and will dial when handset is lifted

RE: auto ringdown on idle line

thanks Joe but I don't want to make it a hotline, I want it to ring a destination if the other party hangs up and the handset is not hung up or if someone picks up the handset but doesn't dial after a set time.


RE: auto ringdown on idle line

not sure then

RE: auto ringdown on idle line

look at off hook alert
display system-parameters features Page 4 of 21
Reserved Slots for Attendant Priority Queue: 5
Time before Off-hook Alert: 10
Emergency Access Redirection Extension:
Number of Emergency Calls Allowed in Attendant Queue: 5
Drop Parking User From the Call After Timeout? n
Deluxe Paging and Call Park Timeout to Originator? n
Controlled Outward Restriction Intercept Treatment: tone
Controlled Termination Restriction (Do Not Disturb): tone
Controlled Station to Station Restriction: tone
The off hook alert is in Seconds
Emergency access redirection is the extension getting the alert

Worth a Test No?
