The Station Dialing features permit a subscriber to invoke dialing to access another station or public network destination or enter control digits to control a voice mail system or IVR device and operate many Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony subscriber features.
The subscriber is permitted to invoke offhook, onhook, or hot keypad dialing to:
Access another station or public network (external) destination
Enter control digits to control a voice mail system or IVR device
Activate, deactivate, and configure many Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony subscriber features for example, station call forwarding.
The different types of dialing work as follows:
Offhook dialingParent topic: Calling Services
After lifting the handset, the subscriber obtains dial tone, and enters keypad digits. The subscriber can select OK to complete dialing or wait for the interdigit timeout. Offhook dialing makes use of context dialing functionality, which lets the subscriber enter and modify the digits before selecting OK as long as the interdigit timeout has not expired. This method is sometimes known as enbloc dialing.
After entering keypad digits without lifting the handset the subscriber may select OK to complete dialing or wait for timeout. Onhook dialing also uses context dialing functionality, as described above.
Hot keypad dialing
This dialing allows immediate processing of digit input by the subscriber when the digits input match a digit pattern in the local device's dial plan. If this match is recognized, the interdigit timeout does need not to elapse.
This feature is available on the optiPoint 410/420 S.
