The Selective Call Acceptance feature provides the capability to build a list of numbers (known as a screening list) from which the subscriber wants to accept incoming calls. This feature can be provisioned at the feature profile level with a denied option at the subscriber level.
Either the subscriber or the administrator creates a selective call acceptance list (screening list), that contains up to 32 entries. These entries represent the calling numbers for which calls should be connected to the subscriber. Each entry can contain up to 15 digits.
If the subscriber's selective call acceptance list is empty, Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony prompts the subscriber to add entries to the list. As soon as a valid entry is provided, the feature is activated.
The subscriber can specify from time to time, if needed one of the following actions to perform:
Activate or deactivate the feature
Hear the entries that are currently on the list
Add or delete entries to and from the list.
The administrator specifies via GUI:
Whether the feature is always active, or if the subscriber is permitted to activate and deactivate it.Note:
A 1- to 7-digit PIN that a caller who is not on the accepted numbers list can use to contact the subscriber. This functionality is optional.
Whether to forward rejected calls to another destination, or to play a denial announcement to the caller.
If selective call acceptance is active, but the screening list is empty, all calls are rejected.
When a caller's number matches a number on the acceptance list, the call is completed.
When the caller's number is not on the acceptance list, one of the following occurs:
The caller hears an announcement that indicates the subscriber does not accept calls from this number.
The caller hears an announcement prompting him to enter the correct PIN to enable the call to be completed.
The call is routed to the configured forwarding destination.
The selective call acceptance feature is sometimes known as selective caller accept.
