The delayed ringing feature provides the capability to provision each keyset line key with an option to delay audible ringing when a call is presented to the line. The associated incoming call is not affected.
This feature is particularly useful for executive-assistant arrangements because it allows the assistant to answer calls for the executive’s secondary line appearance before the executive hears the line ringing.
An immediate ring key provides the capability to temporarily override delayed ringing for all lines on the endpoint configured for ringing.
The administrator assigns delayed ringing to a line appearance and defines the duration of the delay before audible alerting. Furthermore, he assigns the Immediate Ring feature key to the device.
When a call is presented to a line provisioned for delayed ringing, the associated line key LED flashes to indicate that the call is present. Upon timeout of the delay ring timer, the device begins to audibly alert (ring), and the associated incoming call display is presented.
For the optiClient 130 S, the display is not delayed.
To override delayed ringing, the user can also activate and deactivate immediate ringing by pressing the Immediate Ring key. The key’s associated LED lights to indicate when it is active, and Immediate Ring Activated or Immediate Ring Deactivated appears in the display as applicable
