Auto Answer with Speakerphone
Your system administrator sets up Auto Answer to work with your speakerphone.
Keep the handset in the cradle to auto answer with your
speakerphone. Otherwise, calls ring normally and you must answer them manually.

Your phone screen displays an on-hold icon for the shared
Your co-worker’s phone screen displays a remote-hold icon for
the shared call.
