Section 200 - General Description
You can limit the number of people who can pick up a call on hold.
You can allow anyone to be able to pick it up, no matter where it's put on hold.
HOT DIAL PAD
A user can simply walk up to a digital phone and start dialing without picking up the headset. The
call immediately switches to the phone's speaker, and the entire call can be conducted on it. Of
course, the user can pick up the hadset anytime to take the call off-speaker.
This feature can be enabled/disabled on individual extensions in programing. There is no
limitation on the number of digital phones that can have Hot Dial Pad. It'll work whenever the
phone is idle, has another call on hold, or is receiving a page.)
Calls can be initiated hands-free (no handset required).
Phones can be programmed to immediately connect to a preassigned extension or speed-dial
number when somebody lifts the handset. (The user doesn't dial any digits.)
Lobby areas, elevators, etc. (for example, a sign above the phone that reads "For
assistance, pick up the phone")
With Meet-Me Answer, a user can answer a page from any extension without having to run to a
certain phone. All the user has to do is pick up the handset on the nearest phone, and dial the
universal Meet-Me Answer Code (the default Code is ##) to connect to the initiator of the page.
Users can answer their calls from any phone in the building.
Attendants don't have to chase people down to relay important messages.
This is similar to Call Waiting. The difference is, the called party isn't as obligated to call you back
when they get off the phone. The Message-Waiting LED will be blinking on the called party's
phone, and its LCD will also indicate the Message-Waiting callback request. The called party can
go off-hook and press the MSG key to call you back. Or, he/she can ignore it. (The indications
won't go away, but they won't interrupt anything else from happening on the phone, either.)
