Chapter 3. System Features
Day and Night modes can be assigned to FF keys on a phone. You can switch between Day 1,
Day 2, Night, Night 1, and Night 2 modes simply by pressing the appropriate key. The FF key
lights red when the System is in the assigned mode.

the key toggles between modes. When in Day 1 mode, the FF key LED is not lit. When in Day 2
mode, the LED lights green. When in Night mode, the LED lights red.
Prior to CPC version 2.0 - Day 1/Night toggle mode key can be assigned. Pressing the key
toggles between modes. When in Day mode, the FF key LED is not lit. When in Night mode, the
LED lights red.
Automatic Day/Night Mode
You can set the System to automatically enter a particular Day/Night mode determined by the time of
day. Each day of the month can be assigned 1 of 3 automatic system mode patterns. Each of the
patterns can be set to change modes up to 5 times per day.
Up to 20 special days can be programmed with up to 5 automatic mode changes for the day.
An Exception Day period is available for overriding the automatic mode for extended periods of time.
For instance, if an office is shut down for the week of July Fourth, the System can be programmed to
not operate in the automatic mode for those days. The System will stay in the same mode for the
period. The mode may be manually changed at any time.
For instance, the System can be set to automatically enter Day 1 mode at 8:00 a.m. on weekdays and
enter Night mode at 5:00 p.m. on weekdays. All incoming calls, TRS and attendant group handling
would change accordingly. On Saturday and Sunday, the System would stay in Night mode.
The Automatic Day/Night modes may be set in User Maintenance. See "Set Mode Schedule" on page
96, "Set Special Day Mode" on page 98, "Set Exception Day Mode" on page 104, and "Set Day of
Week Mode" on page 106.
You can only set Automatic Day/Night modes on a system-wide basis. If tenant groups require
separate Day/Night modes, you must set these modes manually.
You can manually override Automatic Day/Night modes. (See "Manual Day/Night Mode" on
