IPOSE Paging DND override

IPOSE Paging DND override

IPOSE Paging DND override

So I've got a system where we need to override/disable DND on all handsets (9608s) and then page all phones as a PA system. Is there a way to either force disable DND or override it so that the phone will always answer the page?

RE: IPOSE Paging DND override

if the page always comes from the same Extn then adding it to the DND exception list should work but if this is a critical page then you would be better served by a dedicated paging amp

Do things on the cheap & it will cost you dear

RE: IPOSE Paging DND override

So after some testing a poking around with VMPro this is actually possible by using a Generic command to Set the do_not_disturb var on a user to 0, then using a custom variable setup that increments by one to apply to an extension range until it hits a defined limit.

I found that adding the extension to the DND exceptions does not work because I was using a group, you just get a busy signal if you try to Dial Paging that group.

Not an ideal solution I know, but it's what we've got to work with.
