From PBXes

Jump to: navigation, search

The following functions and features are available from the phones:


[edit] When Connected

These codes are detected only if the digits are entered very quickly.

  • ## Attended Transfer
While on conversation with another party, you dial the "#" key twice. The PBX says "Transfer" then gives you a dial tone, while put the other party on hold music. You dial the transferee number and talk with the transferee to introduce the call, then you can hang up and the other party will be connected with the transferee.
In case the transferee does not want to answer the call, he/she simply hangs up or dial *0 and you will be back to your original conversation.
Caution: When transferring outbound calls to external parties you as the caller get replaced by the external party which itself becomes able to transfer and make calls over your PBX.
  • ##70 Call Park
While in a conversation, press "#" twice to initiate a transfer, then dial 70. The PBX will now announce the parking extension, most probably 71 or 72. Now hang up - the caller will be left on hold at the announced extension. Walk up to a different phone, dial 71 and voila the conversation can be continued. If a caller has been parked for longer than 45 seconds then the PBX will again ring the originally dialed extension.
  • *1 One Touch Record
Prior to using this feature, on demand recording has to be allowed on the particular extension. To listen to it sign in to the extension.
  • *2 Blind Transfer
Dial *2 followed by the extension number you intend to transfer the call to, e.g. *2xxx for a 3-digit extension or *2xxxx for a 4-digit extension. A similar string should be included in the dial-plan of the ATA or IP-phone as well, otherwise the call might not be allowed through. The other party will be immediately connected with the transferee. You get a new dial-tone.
Caution: When transferring outbound calls to external parties you as the caller get replaced by the external party which itself becomes able to transfer and make calls over your PBX.
