The Extension Dialing is a feature applicable inside a business group. The feature allows a subscriber in a business group to dial other subscribers in the same business group by dialing an abbreviated number that is synonymous with the extension number.
Extension dialing permits the dialing of intragroup calls on a 1- to 7-digit basis. An extension-dialed call is an intragroup call dialed using a digit sequence assigned to extension dialing.
When a digit sequence assigned to extension dialing is entered at a station, Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony can convert extension to the directory number of the called station. After Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony determines the DN of the called station, it completes the call in the normal manner.
The extension dialing feature is assigned to the business group as a whole; after it is assigned, all stations within the business group have the feature.
