This section describes some of the advanced call functions available to you.
Auto Answer prompts your phone to automatically answer incoming calls after one ring.
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.
Auto barge, if configured, allows you to barge into a shared line call automatically.
For example, in a shared line scenario, when you go off-hook and a call remote is already in use, you can barge into the call automatically.
Shared lines allow you to use one phone number for multiple phones.
You may have a shared line if you have multiple phones and want one phone number, share call-handling tasks with co-workers, or handle calls on behalf of a manager.
For example, if you share a line with a co-worker:
When a call comes in on the shared line:
Your phone rings and the phone light strip flashes amber.
Your co-worker’s phone rings and the phone light strip flashes amber.
If you answer the call:
Your phone screen displays a connected icon for the shared call.
Your co-worker’s phone screen displays a remote-connected icon for the shared call.
If auto barge is enabled, you can auto barge a call by going off-hook or make a new call.
If you put the call on hold:
Your phone screen displays an on-hold icon for the shared call.
Your co-worker’s phone screen displays a remote-hold icon for the shared call.
Your co-worker can pick up the call.
