Chapter 2. System Features
Hunting Priority for VAUs
Technical Manuals Online! - http://www.tech-man.com
Changing from dial pulse to DTMF is possible even if the "*" or "#" key is
programmed for speed dialing.
This feature allows hunting priority to be assigned to calls that overflow from
the hunt group to the VAU. If the caller hears the VAU message and then
decides to dial back into the hunt group, he or she is placed before other calls
that have just entered the hunt group queue. For an illustration of the flow of
calls, see Figure 2-l on page 2-3 1.
To further improve VAU operation, DID, DISA, and transferred calls are now
routed to the first VAU message. (In previous releases, these calls were routed
to the second VAU message.)
In addition, a digital port can now be.assigned as a VAU through system
programming. In previous releases, VAUs were assigned as standard digital
ports. Using the standard digital port assignment required the installer to
make the following program changes:
The CO Offhook Signal option had to be set to "on" (FF3 l-144#I 7#).
The Call Waiting Notification Tone/OHVA option had to be set to "off'
(FF3 l- 144 8#).
Auto Pickup had to be set to "on" (FF3 l-14&# 12#).
All FF keys for the extension port had to be cleared.
The VAU assignment now eliminates the need to make these program
changes. Once a port is assigned as a VAU, the system treats that port as if
these changes have been made.
Note: Though the VAU assignment treats the VAU port as if the program
settings have been made, it does not actually change the settings. If the port is
later assigned as a standard digital port, the original program settings will still
be in effect.
