Call handling

The Call Handling menu allows you to manage the call process. For example, you can configure the process to forward a call to another number on a specific schedule.

This section includes the following topics:

Managing a call

  1. Go to Call Handling.
  2. Under Setting, select a call status from the drop-down menu. Your choices are:
    • Normal
    • No answer
    • Busy
    • Do not disturb
    • Phone not connected
    • Block list
    • Voicemail
  3. Each status can only be used for one call management configuration.

    If you select Block list, the call management configuration will apply to the numbers added in the Personal Block List configuration. See Configuring a personal block list.

  4. Set Call Process to either System default action or User defined.
  5. The System default action changes depending on the status selected. As shown in the example, a Normal status means the system default action is Ring Phone.

  6. If you selected User defined, click New to define a call process according to a schedule.
    1.  Select a default Schedule for the call action. Once a schedule is assigned, you can click View to display the schedule details.
    2.  Select whether this call process applies to Internal, External, and/or Office peer calls.
    3.  Select an Action for the call process. Multiple user defined call process actions can be defined to process a call in a specific sequence. For example, you can create one call process with a Play announcement action, followed by another with an Auto attendant action.

      The Default action is the same as the system default action, determined by the call handling status.

    4.  If you select Follow me, select a follow me profile. For information about configuring follow me, see Configuring the Follow Me setting.

      This option is only available if your administrator enables call forwarding in your extension's user privilege.

    5.  If you select Play announcement, you have the option to select one of the default sound files or customize the sound file. For details about customizing the sound file, see Customizing a sound file for an announcement.
    6. If you select Auto attendant, select a default auto attendant.
    7. Click OK.
  7. Your call process actions are shown. If necessary, you can change the order of the actions by selecting an action's checkbox and clicking Move > Up or Move > Down.
  8. Click OK.

Configuring Quick call handling

Use Quick call handling to change your call handling settings for a short period of time and leave your regular call handling settings unaffected by this change. The quick call handling settings are tied to the settings under Preferences > Quick Mode (see Preferences).

You can manage Quick call handling by dialing a code to enter into a default mode and configure the call process for when your status is either Out of office or Away, or for another reason (Other).
