Liquid crystal display (LCD)
When your phone (or station) is not in use, the liquid crystal display
(LCD) will show the current date and time, activated features such as
DND (do not disturb; see “MUTE/DND,” page A.4), monitor mode, etc.)
Lines in use
and the system’s current line usage.
Available lines
If your system has 16 or fewer lines, each block on the bottom line of the display will represent an
individual line (as in the seven-line example, above). Incoming calls usually are assigned
beginning with Line 1 at the far-left line indicator. Outgoing calls are assigned from the highest
numbered line beginning at the far right.
If your system has 17 or more lines, then the bottom line of the display
will provide a graphical representation of relative line usage (see right).
The ratio of bars on the left and right will indicate the relative amount
A high percentage of lines in use
of incoming and outgoing lines in use. The relative size of the blank
area in the center will indicate lines not in use.
As you use your Digital Feature Phone, its display changes frequently
to provide detailed information during call processing and voice
mail operations.
Fewer lines in use
A.1
Digital Feature Phone operation
IVX 128 Plus
Caller ID
If you subscribe to Caller ID from your telephone service provider, the phone’s display will show an
outside caller’s name and/or number.1 In some instances, the service provider can send only a
general caller status such as UNAVAILABLE, PRIVATE, or NO DATA SENT.
Programmable feature keys
The 16 programmable feature keys at the top of the phone have been pre-programmed by the
installer. You may wish to add to or change some of these keys to perform different functions
explained throughout this manual. Press PROG/HELP, 0, 3 and any key to verify the current settings
(see “Station programming,” page A.29).
Fixed-feature keys
The fixed-feature keys on the phone are permanently labeled as to their usage. The PROG/HELP
and MUTE/DND keys have two purposes each; however the IVX 128 Plus phone system will govern
this by permitting only the appropriate function when either is pressed, depending on the
circumstances at that moment.
LED lamps
The LEDs associated with the programmable and fixed keys aid in determining the status of their
function. In general, green indicates a function associated with your phone, while red indicates an
occurrence at another station. A solid lamp indicates in use, blinking means an action is required
such as ringing or holding and a fast blink means immediate action. As an example, a blinking red
key is a call ringing at another station; blinking green signifies ringing at your station.
Help mode
IVX 128 Plus’s Help mode — a carefully conceived combination of spoken information, display
readouts and even key illumination when appropriate — is a powerful tool to help you learn how to
use the system’s many features.
Tutorial
When your station is idle, press PROG/HELP, 0, and then follow the spoken Help menu to:
• Learn how to use the phone
• Hear a description of how any key is used
• Learn how to use voice mail features
• Hear a complete tutorial on phone operation
Help during station programming
Press PROG/HELP while programming a function to hear a detailed description of the function.
1
If you do not subscribe to Caller ID, the LCD will show which line is receiving the call, instead of the caller’s name or number.
A.2
IVX 128 Plus
Digital Feature Phone operation
Help during a call
Press PROG/HELP while on a call and this will place the call on hold, whereupon you can use Help
mode to hear a description of the function you wish to perform. When you exit Help mode, you will
be reconnected to the call.
While you are either in Help mode or programming your phone, your station will be temporarily
placed in DND (see “MUTE/DND,” page A.4). Anyone calling your station while you are in DND will
be forwarded to your mailbox (or other destination set by the installer).
Exiting Help mode
To exit Help Mode, simply hang up.
Extensive user help is always available on the ESI Web site at www.esi-estech.com.
Dial tone
When you first lift your handset, you will hear an internal dial tone that allows you to call other
stations or perform other internal functions. To gain an outside dial tone, dial 9 (or 8 or 71–76)2 or
press a programmable feature key that has been set as a line key. (A line key, when pressed,
automatically gains an outside line. Consult your system’s administrator if you have questions.)
SPEAKER
For hands-free conversation, use the SPEAKER key.
If you press SPEAKER when an outside call rings, this will connect you to the caller via your phone’s
built-in speakerphone and light the SPEAKER LED (light-emitting diode).
While using the handset, pressing SPEAKER and hanging up the handset will switch the caller to
your speaker. To revert to the handset from speakerphone mode, lift the handset again.
Group listening
To have a handset conversation along with the caller’s voice broadcast over your speaker, press
SPEAKER while on a handset conversation but do not hang up the handset.
Hands-free answer (internal calls only)
You can program your phone either to enable or disable hands-free answer (PROG/HELP 3 5).
With hands-free enabled, an internal call to your station generates a short ring and a double
connect tone, then automatically connects the caller to your speakerphone.
With hands-free disabled, an internal call to your station generates a single ring cadence.
Note: Outside calls ring with a double ring cadence.
2
What you dial to reach an outside line depends on your system’s particular setup. If you’re not sure, consult
your administrator.
A.3
Digital Feature Phone operation
IVX 128 Plus
Volume/scroll keys
The two smaller keys just above the dialpad labeled ▲ and ▼ serve two purposes:
• Adjusting the volume heard through the handset and speaker — Your phone will maintain the
chosen volume setting until you change it.
• Serving as scroll keys for operations, such as Esi-Dex or programming, that may show several
entries on the display.
MUTE/DND
Mute
To disable your handset or speaker microphone during a conversation (either with the handset or
speaker), press MUTE/DND. While the mute function is activated, the MUTE/DND LED will blink
rapidly and the display shows “MUTED.”
DND
When your phone is idle and you wish to make sure its calls go straight to voice mail, press
MUTE/DND to toggle your phone in or out of do-not-disturb mode. The display will show DND and
the MUTE/DND LED will glow amber.
Note: If you press MUTE/DND while your phone is ringing, this forwards the call to your voice
mailbox (see “Voice mail operation,” page A.20) and your station will be placed in DND.
Basic phone use
Outside calls
To answer (double-ring cadence): Lift the handset or press SPEAKER.
To place: Lift the handset or press SPEAKER. Then either press an unlit line key or dial 9 (or 8 or
71–76) to be assigned an outside dial tone.
Shortcut: From idle, dial 9 (or 8 or 71–76); IVX 128 Plus automatically turns on the
speakerphone and you hear an outside dial tone. Then dial the number.
To hang up: Replace the handset or press RELEASE or — if using the speakerphone — press SPEAKER.
A.4
IVX 128 Plus

. . . to another station
Blind transfer
1. While connected to an outside call, press a station key (or press TRANSFER and then dial the
extension number).
2. Hang up immediately to perform a blind transfer.
Note: If the called party does not answer, the caller will be forwarded either to the called
party’s mailbox or another destination the Installer has programmed.
Supervised transfer — announcing the caller to the called party
1. While connected to an outside call, press a station key (or press TRANSFER and then dial the
extension number).
2. Do not hang up; instead, wait until the called party answers.
3. Announce the caller (e. g., “Hello; I’ve got Bill on the line and I’m transferring him to you now.”)
4. Hang up, completing the supervised transfer.
Note: If the transferred-to party does not answer in step 1, press the station key again or press
FLASH to be reconnected to the original caller.
. . . to another phone number (trunk-to-trunk transfer)3
Important: USE OF FEATURES, SUCH AS TRUNK-TO-TRUNK TRANSFER, THAT REQUIRE TRUNK-TO-TRUNK
CONNECTIONS WILL INCREASE THE RISK OF TOLL FRAUD. IN NO EVENT SHALL ESTECH
SYSTEMS, INC. BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES WHATSOEVER INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FRAUDULENT TOLL CHARGES,
LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTIONS, OR ANY OTHER COSTS OR
DAMAGES RELATED THERETO, ARISING FROM THE USE OF THESE FEATURES.
Blind transfer
1. While connected to an outside call, press TRANSFER and then the line access code (9, 8, or
71–76), and then the telephone number to which you want to transfer.
2. Hang up immediately to perform a blind transfer. Now both CO lines are connected via a trunkto-trunk connection.
Note: If, at any point during the trunk-to-trunk transfer, you wish to return to the original call —
perhaps you received a busy signal at the remote end, or the recipient simply won’t take
the call — just press FLASH. This will disconnect the second CO connection, returning
you to (and removing from hold) the original call.

2. Do not hang up; instead, wait until the called party answers.
3. Announce the caller (e. g., “Hello; I’ve got Bill on the line and I’m transferring him to you now.”)
4. Hang up, completing the supervised transfer. Now both CO lines are connected via a trunk-totrunk connection.
Note: If, at any point during the trunk-to-trunk transfer, you wish to return to the original call —
perhaps you received a busy signal at the remote end, or the recipient simply won’t take
the call — just press FLASH. This will disconnect the second CO connection, returning
you to (and removing from hold) the original call.
. . . to a voice mailbox
Transferring a caller to a mailbox to leave a message
1. Press VOICEMAIL and the appropriate station key — or, if your phone has no station key
programmed for this destination, press VOICEMAIL and TRANSFER, and then dial the extension
number.
2. You and the caller will be connected to that user’s personal greeting. You may choose either to
hang up immediately or listen to a portion of the personal greeting (i. e., to assure yourself that
you have placed the caller into the correct mailbox).
Note: Regardless of when you hang up, the caller will hear the entire personal greeting. To insure
the privacy of the message, you will automatically be disconnected at the record tone.
Transferring a user to his/her own mailbox for message pickup
You can transfer a user who’s calling from the outside directly to his/her mailbox for message pickup by pressing VOICEMAIL, * and the appropriate Station Key, or dialing the mailbox number and
hanging up.
. . . to the main greeting
To transfer an outside caller to the main greeting, press VOICEMAIL and hang up.
Conference calling
To create a conference call:
1. Establish the first call.
2. Press CONF. This places the call on hold.
3. Place a second call as you normally would.
4. Once connected to the second call, press CONF again to connect together the three of you.
5. Repeat these steps to add additional parties to the conference.
If the newest added-on party does not answer, press his/her station key again or press FLASH to
return to the original conferees. If you place any incoming caller on park (see “Park/hold
operation,” page A.10) or hold, you can add that caller, too, to the conference by pressing CONF,
retrieving the call from park or hold and pressing CONF again.
A.7
Digital Feature Phone operation
IVX 128 Plus
Any member of the conference can drop out by simply hanging up. However, when the station that
created the conference hangs up, all parties in the conference are disconnected. Individual stations
or lines connected to the conference can be dropped from the conference by pressing their station
or line key (lit green).
Note: A total of 24 parties can be in conferences within the system at any one time.
No more than four parties can be in a single conference.
Note: Your installer or system administrator may have enabled trunk-to-trunk conferencing
(unsupervised conferencing) for your station. If so, the steps to initiating such a conference
are the same as for performing any other conference (see above); the difference is that you
may hang up, thus exiting the conference, but the remaining parties won’t be disconnected.
(If this feature isn’t enabled, your hanging up disconnects all parties.)
Important: USE OF FEATURES, SUCH AS TRUNK-TO-TRUNK TRANSFER, THAT REQUIRE TRUNK-TO-TRUNK
CONNECTIONS WILL INCREASE THE RISK OF TOLL FRAID. IN NO EVENT SHALL ESTECH
SYSTEMS, INC. BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES WHATSOEVER INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FRAUDULENT TOLL CHARGES,
LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTIONS, OR ANY OTHER COSTS OR
DAMAGES RELATED THERETO, ARISING FROM THE USE OF THESE FEATURES.
Call forwarding
Your station has been pre-programmed by the installer to call-forward your phone when it is busy
or does not answer (usually to your mailbox). In addition, you can temporarily call-forward all of
your calls to another station or another user’s mailbox:
1. Lift the handset.
2. Dial 5 6 5.
3. Dial the extension number (or VOICEMAIL and then the mailbox number) to which the system
should forward all calls.
Note: If the forwarded-to station is busy or does not answer a forwarded call, the call will be
returned to your mailbox.
To turn off call forward, dial 5 6 5 without selecting a destination and hang up.
If you frequently call-forward your phone, you can program a programmable feature key as a call
forwarding key to automatically turn forwarding on and off. If you always forward to the same
extension, you can program a key with both 5 6 5 and the extension number. (For more
information, see “Programmable feature keys,” page A.30.) The call forwarding key will be solid
green to indicate that it is active.
Call waiting
If you have enabled call waiting for your station (PROG/HELP 3 1) and a second call comes in while
you are on another, you’ll hear a tone in your earpiece and the bottom line of your display will
indicate that a second call is waiting. You can ignore the call waiting and it will be transferred to
your mailbox (or other destination set by the installer).
To toggle between the two calls, press FLASH.
To drop either call, press RELEASE while connected to the call to be dropped: this disconnects the
call and automatically re-connects you to the other call.
A.8
IVX 128 Plus
Digital Feature Phone operation
Call waiting display
Be sure to check the display when you’re using call waiting. Initially, the top line shows the name or
number of your original call (depending on how the call was created) and the call duration. The
bottom line shows the name or number of the call waiting along with the duration of that call. The
arrow on the display will move between the top and bottom line, indicating to which call you are
connected. Here’s an example:
1. You’re connected to XYZ Company, when you hear a beep and see that Joe Smith is calling:
ÆXYZ COMPAN 4:12
SMITH, JOE 0:31
(In this example, Joe’s call is being transferred to you; it’s been in the system for 31 seconds.)
2. You press FLASH and are connected to Joe. Notice how the arrow moves to indicate the change
of connection:
XYZ COMPAN 4:13
ÆSMITH, JOE 0:32
Note: If Caller ID is not used, the Line number will appear instead of the caller’s name or number. If
Caller ID is used, in some instances the local telephone service provider will only show a
general caller status such as Unavailable, Private, or No Data Sent.
Station-to-station call waiting
You can call, or transfer a call to, another station that is in use (as indicated by the fact that its
station key, if one exists for it on your Digital Feature Phone, is glowing red). This generates a call
waiting tone in the other station’s earpiece and puts a call waiting indication on the bottom line of
that station’s display, as explained in “Call waiting display” (above). If the person ignores the call
waiting, your call or the transferred call will be forwarded to the person’s mailbox (or other
destination set by the installer).
Background announce feature
During call waiting, you can also make a brief, private background announcement to the station's
earpiece (if its user has enabled the background announce feature; see “Station options,” page
A.32). A background announce key must have been programmed at your station by programming
code 569 at a programmable feature key (see “Programmable feature keys,” page A.30).
1. During call waiting (as described previously), press and hold the programmed announce key to
speak; the key will glow green if background announce is permitted or red if it isn’t permitted.
The called station will hear your voice over the outside party’s voice. The outside caller,
however, cannot hear you. The called party can respond by pressing FLASH, which places the
original call on hold.
2. Release the key when you are finished speaking.
Note: The background announce feature works only between Digital Feature Phones, only if the
called party has allowed call waiting and background announce, and if the called party is
using their handset. The background announce key will be green (only if these conditions are
met) indicating that a background announce can be made.
A.9
Digital Feature Phone operation
IVX 128 Plus
Park/hold operation
The difference between park and hold
Your Digital Feature Phone lets you put a call on either park or hold. Each puts a call into a standby
mode, but here’s the difference between the two:
• Park allows anyone on the IVX 128 Plus system to retrieve the call. The system stores parked
calls in several park zones you’ll identify numerically — e.g., “Park One,” “Park Four,” etc.4
For example, if you need to transfer a call to another station and know the person is in the
building but not at his/her desk, you might page him/her to pick up a “call on Park One.”
• Hold keeps the call exclusively where a user pressed HOLD, allowing no other station to retrieve it
unless system-wide hold is enabled and line appearances are programmed on the phone (see
“System-wide hold,” page A.11).
Park
To park a call
While on an outside call, press the PARK key to park the call. The Park Key LED will blink green on
your phone and blink red on all other phones. The display will indicate “PARKED ON: XX” (where XX
is the line number).
2023456562
PARKED ON:
1:43
12
If your phone has line keys programmed, the corresponding line key will blink green. On other
phones the corresponding line key will blink red.
Note: The line numbers of calls that you have parked will remain displayed on the bottom line of
your display until retrieved.
To retrieve a parked call
To retrieve the parked call from any idle phone, press PARK and dial its line number (e.g., press 1 2
for Line 12).
Note: If your phone has any line keys programmed (see “Programmable feature keys,” page A.30),
each will blink red when a call is parked on its lines; in such cases, just press that line key to
retrieve the parked call.
Note: You can retrieve the oldest parked call by pressing PARK and then 0.
The display will help you choose the line number to retrieve. After pressing PARK, the top line of the

Hold
To place a call on hold
Press HOLD to place an outside call on hold exclusively for the station you’re using. The HOLD LED
will blink green. If your phone has line keys programmed, the corresponding line key will also blink
green (it will show as busy at all other stations).
To retrieve a held call
To reconnect to a call on hold, press HOLD (blinking green) again. Or, if your phone has line keys
programmed, press the corresponding (blinking green) line key.
Park/hold recall
If you don’t retrieve a parked or held call within a certain period of time (set by the installer), your
phone will “recall” it. You’ll hear three short ring tones and the LCD display will show “PARK RECALL
XX” (where XX refers to the line involved) or “HOLD RECALL”:
PARK RECALL: 5
R5 2
To answer the recall, lift the handset or press SPEAKER. To perform another action — such as placing
an outside call — during a recall, you must first answer the recall and transfer it, park again, etc., and
then place the call. An “R” will appear on other phones’ displays to show that the call is being recalled.
Note: A park or hold recall will ring the extension six times, then follow the extension’s call-forward
setting (the default is that it goes to the extension’s mailbox).
System-wide hold
Your Installer may have enabled this feature, which is used in conjunction with line key
appearances programmed at your station (see page A.30). This allows you to press the HOLD key to
place the caller on hold so that anyone with line key appearances programmed at his/her station
can retrieve the call; the appropriate line key will blink green at your station and blink red at those
other stations. To retrieve the call from hold, simply press its line key.
Note: If your station doesn’t have line key appearances, pressing HOLD causes an exclusive hold;
i.e., the line key remains solidly lit on all other stations with that line key programmed.

Paging
The IVX system can be programmed to allow paging through an overhead paging system and/or
paging through some (if page zones have been created) all of the system’s Digital Feature
Phone speakers.
Overhead paging
Station number 199 is designated as the OH paging port. If IVX has been connected to an overhead
paging system, you can page by dialing 1 9 9 and making your announcement after the tones. If
you frequently page, program a programmable feature key with 199.
Paging through phones
Press PAGE 0 to page through all of the Digital Feature Phone speakers. Press PAGE and then 1, 2,
or 3 to access a programmed paging zone. (See the administrator for a list of page zones.) The
Installer may have added an overhead page system to one or more of these page zones.
Note: Phones in use will not carry a page through their speakers.
To page for pickup of an outside call
To page someone to pick up an outside call:
1. Park the call by pressing PARK.
2. Verify the line number from the display.
3. Page the person and announce the park location for retrieval. For example:
“Sarah, you have a call on Park Two — Sarah, Park Two, please.”

System speed-dialing with Esi-Dex
If your administrator has programmed system speed-dial numbers, you can access one of these
numbers either via Esi-Dex, as explained in the foregoing discussion, or auto-dial it by dialing its
corresponding three-digit access number (in the range 600–699).
Example: If an out-of-town factory location has been programmed as system speed-dial access
number 605, you can lift the handset, receive internal dial tone, dial 6 0 5 and this will
automatically dial the factory’s number. You may also program 605 (in this example) as
a programmable feature key (see page A.30).
Message monitor mode (live call screening)
Message monitor mode, also known as live call screening, lets you hear a caller leaving a message
in your mailbox — just as with your home answering machine. You turn this feature on or off as part
of user programming (PROG/HELP 3 6), or you may program a feature key for this purpose (see
“Message monitor key (Code 568),” page A.18). While you hear the caller through your speaker,
you have the following options:
Option
Result
Lift the handset
You intercept the call
Do nothing
The system records the message to your
mailbox for your later retrieval
Press MUTE/DND
Temporarily mutes your speaker (the
system continues to record the message
to your mailbox)
Note: During monitor mode, you will hear a call ring, then subdued ringing while the caller is
hearing your personal greeting, then their message. You can intercept the call at any time.
Personal greeting reminder
If you frequently change your personal greeting, use this option; it sets your station to remind you of
your current greeting. The first time you use your phone after it has been idle (for the period you set in
this function), the system automatically plays your current greeting (and gives you the option to
change it). The range is 0 (no reminder) to 500 hours. To set this, press PROG/HELP 3 2.
Example:
If you change your personal greeting only when out of town for a few days, set the
reminder interval to 60 hours; you’ll be reminded if your phone has not been used for
three days. Set it for 36 hours and you will be reminded every Monday morning or if you
are away for a couple of days. If you change your greeting several times a day, set the
reminder for about 3 hours.
Headset operation
You can use your phone with a headset connected to the handset jack. You must have a headset
key programmed as one of your programmable feature keys (see “Other feature keys,” page A.31)
to be used to connect or disconnect from a call. (See also “RELEASE key,” page A.13.)The key will
blink green when a call is ringing and glow green when connected. You turn Headset Mode on or off
as part of user programming (PROG/HELP 3 3).

Outside dial tone preference
If you make mostly outside calls, you may find this setting helpful. It tells your station to connect
automatically to an available outside line; i.e., you don’t have to dial 9 (or 8 or 71–76) before the
phone number. Therefore, when you lift the handset or press SPEAKER, you will immediately
receive an outside dial tone from the highest-numbered line available to you. 6
Note: To place an internal call while in this mode, press the appropriate station key or (a.) press
TRANSFER to switch to internal dial tone and (b.) then dial the extension number.
Line keys
If some of your programmable feature keys have been programmed as line keys (or you can
program line keys using PROG/HELP 2), press an unlit key to access the line. An outside call
transferred to your station can be answered by simply lifting the handset or pressing SPEAKER. You
do not have to press the line key. The LED indications for the line keys are:

Note: Dialing 9 (or 8 or 71–76) to be assigned a line automatically is always available.
Private line
If a private line has been assigned to your station, you must have a line key programmed (see
pages A.30–A.31) in order to access it.
Optional features
The following optional features may be accessible from your station. See the administrator for
details. In many of the cases you can dial the appropriate feature code (one that starts with 5), to
activate or use the feature. In some instances, you must use a programmable feature key to serve
as an on/off key for the feature (see “Programmable feature keys,” page A.30).
Manual day/night mode (Code 560)
The system’s main greeting can be manually changed using a programmable feature key. Each time
the key is pressed, the display switches among the following: DAY, NIGHT, HDAY (holiday) or AUTO
(AUTO indicates that the system will follow the day/night mode tables programmed by the Installer).
Tip: Placing the system in auto, then deleting the key’s programming, will keep the system from
being taken out of this mode.
Note: The administrator can also change the mode and/or re-record the holiday greeting remotely
to handle unexpected closings, such as for inclement weather.

Press the assigned programmable feature key (or dial code 5 6 1), followed by an extension
number or station key, to begin service observing. To discontinue observing, press the station key
again or hang up. While you observe another station’s incoming call, your display shows to whom
that station is connected and how long the call has lasted.
Note: The administrator must authorize service observing for your station and the Installer must
program the list of allowed extensions.
Headset key (Code 564)
This key provides for easy connecting to/disconnecting from calls when operating in headset mode
(see “Headset operation,” page A.16). Press the key to receive dial tone or to answer a ringing call.
Press the key again or press RELEASE to disconnect from the call.
Call forward key (Code 565 or 565XXX)
If you frequently call-forward your phone (see “Call forwarding,” page A.8), you can program a programmable feature key as a call forwarding key to automatically turn forwarding on and off. If you always
forward to the same extension, you can program a key with both 5 6 5 and the extension number.
Message monitor key (Code 568)
Easily toggle the message monitor mode on or off with this key. (Otherwise, you can perform the
toggle by pressing PROG/HELP 3 6 and following the prompts.)
Background announce key (Code 569)
During call waiting, you can also make a brief, private background announcement (see
“Background announce feature,” page A.9) to the station's earpiece (if the station user has
enabled the background announce feature). Press the key to talk and release when finished.
Personal greeting key (Codes 571–573)
These keys will provide for easy activation of one or more of your personal greetings (see “Personal

Missed call key (Code 574)
Note: This works only if you are receiving Caller ID service from your provider. Consult your
administrator if needed.
A programmable feature key with this code will flash whenever you have a missed call — i.e., both
(a.) you don’t answer a call to your station; and (b.) the caller doesn’t leave a message in your voice
mailbox. When the key is flashing, press it to see the stored Caller ID record for the most recent
missed call. Use the scroll keys (▼ / ▲) to view records for other missed calls; IVX 128 will store
Caller ID records for up to 10 missed calls.
Note: When your station receives its 11th missed call, this will delete the oldest missed call.
Additionally, while a record is on the display, you may do the following:
• To dial the caller displayed, press REDIAL.
• To view the telephone number (rather than the name), press 2.
• To delete a record, press 7 while the record is on the display.
• To store the record in your Personal Dex, press ESI-DEX.
Note: If your station is forwarded to another extension, any calls will be considered answered and
the missed call key will not flash. However, if that other extension has a missed call key
programmed, that key will flash (under conditions (a.) and (b.), as described above) even if
the call is actually forwarded from your extension.
Virtual answer keys (Codes 575, 576)
Note: This works only if call waiting is enabled for your station. Consult your system administrator
if needed.
You can program a virtual answer key to play a greeting to a caller when your extension is busy and
route the caller to a desired destination by pressing this key. Program a programmable function key
with either 5 7 5 or 5 7 6. Prompts will instruct you in how to record the greeting and program the
caller’s destination.
The destination can be either the default call waiting or another station; the system takes the caller
there after playing the recorded greeting. With call waiting, the system places the caller on hold as
call waiting (“camping on”) for your station; if the caller can’t wait, he/she may (a.) press 1 to reach
your voice mail, (b.) enter another extension or (c.) press 0 to reach the Operator. With another
station selected, the call is forwarded to the station.
To record the greeting from an idle phone:
1. Press the chosen programmable function key; then press RECORD.
2. Follow the prompts to record the greeting and program the destination.
Sample greetings for call waiting keys:
“Hello. This is Harvey. I’m currently on another line, but I’d really like to speak
to you. Please hold and I’ll be with you shortly. However, if you do not wish to
wait on hold, press 1 to leave me a voice message. You may also either dial
another extension or press 0 to reach the Operator.”
“Hello. This is Bill. I’m currently on another line, but I have been notified of
your call. I am sending your call to our Sales Department administrator for
more immediate assistance. Please remain on the line as your call is being
transferred. Thank you.”

Voice mail operation: an introduction
IVX provides accurate and timely messages. Others will become more comfortable leaving you
voice messages if you promptly retrieve and respond to your messages.
VOICEMAIL
The VOICEMAIL key is used for direct access to all voice mail features, such as picking up messages
or transferring directly to mailboxes.
Personal greetings
Initially, your mailbox has a generic greeting: “You have reached the mailbox for extension xxx.
Dial 0 to reach the operator or begin recording at the tone.” You can record up to three different
personal greetings in your own voice indicating your availability to return calls. To record a personal
greeting, press PROG/HELP 1 and then follow the instructions you’ll hear.
Examples
Greeting 1:
Greeting 2:
Greeting 3:
Hi, this is [name]. I’m away from my desk or on the phone right now; so please either dial zero
to reach our operator, or leave me your name, number and message at the tone and I’ll get
back to you as soon as I can.
Hi, this is [name]. I’m out of the office. You may dial 122 for my assistant. If you prefer, you
may leave me a voice message at the tone — I’ll check in regularly — or, if it’s important, dial 2
now to leave me an urgent message that will page me automatically.
Hi, this is [name]. It’s after normal business hours here, so please leave a message at the tone
and I'll respond on the next business day.
Depending on auto attendant usage and your personal preferences, you may wish to include one or
more of these options in your personal greetings:

Warning: Do not delete all of your personal greetings; make sure at least one always remains.
Deleting all the greetings not only doesn’t revert to the initial default greeting, it also
will turn off your mailbox.

The system will access the paging zone for the extension and play the user’s name as recorded in the directory (if no
name is recorded, it will page by extension number) followed by the phrase “you have a call on park” and the line on
which the caller is parked — e.g., “John Doe, you have a call on park 21.”

Note: If you wish to re-record this greeting, press RECORD while the confirmation is playing and
follow the prompts.
Leaving messages . . .
If you call another station that is DND, busy or does not answer — or if you call a special mailbox
(such as a guest or group mailbox) — you will be transferred to the mailbox. You can skip the
mailbox’s personal greeting by pressing 1; this takes you directly to the record tone.
. . . directly in another user’s mailbox
The procedure for going directly to another user’s mailbox without ringing his/her extension
depends upon whether you have that user’s extension set as one of your station keys:
• If you do, press VOICEMAIL and then the person’s station key.
• If you don’t, press VOICEMAIL and TRANSFER and then dial the extension number.
Either will connect you directly to that user’s personal greeting.
. . . in several users’ mailboxes using a Quick Group
You can leave a direct message in several users' mailboxes at the same time by pressing
VOICEMAIL and the desired station keys — thus creating a Quick Group. You can also move
messages or recordings to a Quick Group in the same manner.
Note: You can use only station keys to select the additional mailboxes for Quick Groups.
Note: If you have a department programmed as a station key, pressing VOICEMAIL and then the
department’s station key will leave a message for all members of the department.
New message skip
When listening to new messages, press 9 twice (within two seconds) to save a message as new.
This message will be played again as a new message the next time you access your voice mail.
Note: When you press 9 once to save the message as old, there is a short delay before the system
tells you it has saved the message. To bypass this delay after pressing 9, just press # to hear
the next message.

AutoPage
This feature lets you have outside callers internally page you after they’ve been forwarded to your
voice mailbox and are listening to your personal greeting (see “Voice mail operation: an introduction,”
pages A.20–A.21). You must have personal greeting 3 selected and it must tell callers to press 3
for this feature. If the caller dials 3 during the personal greeting, he/she is placed on park; the
system then pages you by name, followed by the phrase “You have a call on Park” and the line on
which the caller’s parked (e.g., “John Doe, you have a call on Park 21”). If you don’t answer the
page within a programmed interval, the caller is forwarded back to your extension/voice mailbox.
(This feature is active if your administrator authorizes your station for it, you have set your mailbox
to play personal greeting 3, and a directory name is recorded for your station.)
Sample personal greeting 3 for auto page:
“Hello. This is Rick. I’m currently unable to receive your call. To have me paged
throughout the building, please press 3 now. Otherwise, please leave me a
message after the tone and I will return your call as soon as possible.”
Move and delete message
When you move a message, the system accesses another submenu to determine whether you want
to move and delete a message, or move and save it. After you press 6 to move a message, the
prompt will ask whether you wish to:
• Move the message but also save a copy of it in your voice mailbox
or
• Move the message and delete it from your mailbox.
(This feature is activated only if your Installer enables it on your system.)
Off-premises “reach me”
After a caller has been forwarded to your voice mailbox and is listening to your personal greeting,
this feature allows a caller to be forwarded to a number outside the system — i.e., a regular phone
number rather than an extension. You must have personal greeting 2 selected and it must must tell
callers to press 4 for this feature. When the caller presses 4 during your greeting, the system
forwards them to the number you entered for “phone delivery” under “external message
notification” (PROG/HELP 6 2 — for more details, see pages A.33–A.34). If that number doesn’t
answer, the caller is returned to your voice mailbox. When you receive a forwarded call, you’ll be
prompted to “press any key” to accept the call.
(This feature is activated only if your administrator enables it on your station and you have set your
mailbox to play personal greeting 2.)
Sample personal greeting 2 for off-premises “reach me”:
“Hello. This is Rick. I’m currently out of the office. To attempt to reach me on my
mobile phone, please press 4 now. Otherwise, please leave me a message
after the tone and I will return your call as soon as possible.”

RECORD
To begin recording both sides of the conversation during a call, press RECORD. Recording will
continue until either you press RECORD again, the call is completed or the maximum record limit8 is
reached (default is 10 minutes). To resume recording, you must press RECORD again. During
recording, the RECORD LED will “flutter” (blink rapidly) green and the LCD will display RECORDING.
You can record any conversation, including a conference call or service observing call.
Note: The Installer may have programmed your system to insert a short tone every 15 seconds
while recording.
You can also make a personal recording — useful for recording personal reminders, in office
conversations or meetings —by lifting the handset or pressing SPEAKER and then pressing
RECORD. Internal dial tone will stop and recording of your station will begin until RECORD is
pressed again or you hang up.
Quick Move™
The Quick Move feature is perfect for those times when you are on a call you know would be more
appropriate for one or more other, currently unavailable co-workers (for whose stations you have
programmed station keys on your phone). While you record a conversation, you can move (not
copy) the recording to other stations by pressing one or more station keys; each designated user's
mailbox will receive the recording as a new message, but your mailbox will not have the recording.
This feature saves you many steps when you know, while recording, that you want the recording to
be saved in another user’s mailbox. You won’t need to access your mailbox, move the recording,
and then delete the recording from your mailbox.
Playback of recordings
If you have recorded conversations, they will play after your old messages, or you can access them

4. At the end of each message, IVX prompts you for instructions (see the chart, “Keys’ functions
during voice mail message retrieval,” next page). Once you’ve learned these prompts, you can
proceed more rapidly by pressing one of the appropriate keys any time during a message or
during a prompt.
Note: If, while picking up messages, you receive a call-waiting tone, hang up. When your phone
rings, lift the handset and you will be connected to the waiting call.
Alternatively, you may simply press RELEASE when you hear the call-waiting tone.
This automatically connects you to the waiting call without your having to first hang up, then
pick back up, the handset.
Note: If you hang up during playback of a message, the system saves that message and all others
not deleted.

Retrieving voice mail messages using another user’s Digital Feature Phone
1. Press VOICEMAIL and then *.
2. Dial your extension number.
3. Follow the procedures described in “Retrieving voice mail messages from your Digital Feature
Phone” (page A.24).
Virtual Mailbox Key™
If you frequently pick up your messages from another user’s Digital Feature Phone or have others
help pick up your messages, you may want to program a programmable feature key on that phone
as a Virtual Mailbox Key for your mailbox. When you have new messages, the key will blink, press it
to automatically connect to your mailbox. This feature does not affect your ability to pickup
messages from your own phone.
Note: Program the Programmable Key with VOICEMAIL, *, and your extension number (see
“Programmable feature keys,” page A.30).
Retrieving messages from an off-premises location
You can pick up messages when away from the office or from an analog station. Since the display is
not available to you, message handling will operate slightly differently.
To retrieve your message from a remote location:
1. If the auto attendant’s main greeting answers your call, press * and enter your mailbox number.
If the operator or another user answers your call, have the person transfer you (by pressing
VOICEMAIL and *, then pressing your station key [or entering your mailbox number] and then
hanging up).
2. If required, enter your password.
3. IVX will announce the number of new and old messages, and will start playback of messages
starting with the oldest new message and continue until all messages and recordings have
played or you press * to disconnect.

Digital Feature Phone operation
Off-premises message delivery
IVX can be programmed to deliver messages to an off-premises phone and/or to page you when
your voice mailbox receives a message. You can set the phone number (cell phone, home number,
another extension, etc.), a delay time (the period that the system is to wait before attempting to
deliver the message), and the pager number. You can further set the system to deliver only
messages marked as urgent (see "Urgent messages,” next page).
The administrator can also set for your station the:
• Number to be called or paged
• Delay period
• Number of attempts
• Interval between attempts (in increments of 30 minutes)
• "Quiet period” which suspends message delivery for late night, etc.
If you have programmed both an off-premise delivery number and a pager number, the system will
prompt you to choose one of the following delivery options:
• Phone-only
• Pager-only
• Phone, then pager — Attempts phone delivery until the maximum number of attempts has been
tried, then follows paging programming.
• Phone and page at the same time
• No off-premises delivery
Message delivery to a phone
Whenever your mailbox receives a new/urgent message (see "Urgent messages,” below), the
system will call the number that you have programmed and play the prompt: "You have messages.
Please enter your password.” The prompt will repeat three times before the system assumes that
no one has answered (i.e., because it has "heard” no password) and disconnects.
Upon answering, enter your password (if you have set your password options for no password, you
must enter 0 as your password). You will then be connected to your mailbox and can proceed with
normal remote operation (see "Retrieving voice mail messages from an off-premises location,”
page A.26).
Note: A “*” response instead of the password will cause the system to suspend calling you until it
receives the next new/urgent message.
Message notification to an external pager
You can program pager notification to operate either as the sole notification method or in
conjunction with phone delivery.
You can have the system call and activate your external pager whenever the first new/urgent
message is left in your mailbox and repeat the page (at the interval programmed by the
administrator) until all new messages have been retrieved.
Note: Inputting or deleting the phone number that is to be called for off-premises delivery or to
activate your pager11 will turn the feature on or off.

Urgent messages
You can have all new messages delivered or choose to have only urgent messages delivered. If you
have enabled the urgent message feature as part of user programming (PROG/HELP 6 4), you must
include, in your personal greeting, instructions for the caller to press 2 to mark the message as
urgent. If you have new, urgent messages, your VOICEMAIL key's LED will "flutter” (blink rapidly)
and, when you retrieve your messages, the system will play urgent messages ahead of other new
messages.
Message Recycle Bin (un-delete)
IVX stores your most recently deleted 10 messages in a Message Recycle Bin to allow you to
recover, or "un-delete,” messages that may have been deleted in error.
You access the Message Recycle Bin through user programming (PROG/HELP 9). Press 9
to advance through deleted messages. Press 8 to restore a message to your mailbox as an
old message.
User programming: an introduction
All user-controlled features can be programmed from your station by following the voice-prompted
menus to:
• Set or record personal greetings (see “Select personal greeting,” page A.30 )
• Set or change the programmable feature keys (see "Programmable feature keys,” page A.30)
• Enable/disable station options (see "Station options,” page A.32)
• Set station ring tone or ring volume (see “Station audibles,” page A.32)
• Set or change your password (see “Password,” page A.33)
• Set message delivery options (see “External message notification,” page A.33)
• Recover messages deleted in error (see “Message Recycle Bin [un-delete],” page A.34)
Enter programming mode by pressing the PROG/HELP Key (your station will be placed in DND mode
until you exit).
Voice prompts will play menu and sub-menu options to access the desired feature. You don't have
to wait for the entire prompt to be played. Therefore, once you’ve become familiar with the prompts
(consult "User programming menu overview” on the next page), you can quickly set any frequently
used feature.
Example:
Press PROG/HELP 3 3 1 and then hang up to: enter programming; turn on headset
mode; and exit programming (3 3 0 rather than 3 3 1 would turn off headset mode).

A.30
IVX 128 Plus
Digital Feature Phone operation
• Speed-dial keys — In addition to programming a programmable feature key with a system
speed-dial number, you can create personal speed-dial keys for automatic dialing of frequently
called outside numbers. If you program 9 (or 8 or 71–76) plus a phone number, the
programmable feature key becomes a speed-dial key. When you program a speed-dial Key,
there's no need to insert a pause after the 9 (or 8 or 71–76). However, if a pause is necessary
later in the dialing string, press the CONF Key to insert a 2-second pause. Additionally, you can
press FLASH to insert a hook-flash or # key to insert a #. The speed-dial number can be up to 24
characters long.
• Other feature keys — If you enter one of the following feature codes (i.e., one that starts with 5),
the programmable feature key will serve as an enable/disable key for that feature. The Installer
may have programmed certain stations for accessing additional features (consult the
administrator for your accessibility).

Analog stations
Analog stations
If your station has been installed as an analog station, it will be able to use only standard-type
telephones. Because these phones are not digitally integrated to the phone system like the IVX
Digital Feature Phones, their operation and capabilities will be different.13
Tip: To use a cordless phone in conjunction with a Digital Feature Phone, program a programmable
feature key to easily call forward calls to the cordless phone when out of your office. Have the
Installer program the cordless phone’s station programming to forward calls not sent to the
mailbox associated with your Digital Feature Phone.
Flash
A flash-hook, or flash — a momentary break in the connection — is required to perform many of the
station operations below. You can generate a flash by momentarily depressing the hook switch (or,
if your phone is so equipped, press the special key on your phone).
Analog station operation
Placing calls
When you first lift the handset you will hear internal dial tone. Dial 9 (or 8 or 71–76) to access an
outside line and dial the number. To place an internal call, simply dial the extension number,
department number, etc.
Transfer of outside calls
While connected to an outside call, flash and dial the extension number. Hang up immediately to
perform a blind transfer, wait until the called party answers, announce the caller and then hang up.
If the transferred-to party does not answer, flash to be reconnected to the original caller.
Note: Your installer or system administrator may have enabled trunk-to-trunk transfer for your
station. If so: when you flash to initiate the transfer, you may dial an outside phone number
to which to transfer the caller via a trunk-to-trunk connection.
Conference
You cannot originate a conferences from an analog station. Instead, transfer the call to a Digital
Feature Phone and initiate the conference from that phone.
Transfer a call to a mailbox
To transfer an outside caller to another user’s mailbox, flash and dial # and the mailbox number.
You and the caller will be connected to that user’s personal greeting. You may choose to hang up
immediately or listen to a portion of the personal greeting to assure yourself that you have placed
the caller into the correct mailbox. If not, flash to exit the mailbox and be reconnected to the
original caller.
Note: Regardless of when you hang up, the caller will hear the entire personal greeting. To insure
the privacy of the message, you will automatically be disconnected at the record tone.

Transfer a user to his/her mailbox
To transfer to his/her mailbox a user who's calling from the outside to pick up messages, flash,
dial *, and the appropriate mailbox number and hang up.
Call forwarding
Your station has been pre-programmed by the Installer to call-forward your phone when it is busy or
does not answer (usually to your mailbox). In addition you can temporarily call-forward all of your
calls to another station or another user’s mailbox.
Lift the handset, dial 5 6 5 and dial the extension number (or # and the mailbox number) to which
the system should forward all calls.
Note: If the forwarded-to station is busy or does not answer a forwarded call, IVX will return the call
to your mailbox.
To turn off call forwarding, dial 5 6 5 * without selecting a destination, and hang up.
Call pick-up
A call ringing at another station can be picked-up by pressing * and dialing the extension number.
Dialing * 0 will answer the longest ringing outside call.
Call waiting
If you have enabled call waiting for your station (* xxx 5 3, where xxx represents your extension
number), you will hear a tone in your earpiece. flash to toggle between the original call and the call
waiting. To drop either call, hang up while connected to the call to be dropped. When your phone
rings, lift the handset and you will be reconnected to the other caller.
Call park
Park is used to place callers on “hold” for retrieval from any station within IVX.
To park a call
While on an outside call, flash and dial * * *. A short voice prompt will tell which line number the
parked call is using; you will then receive internal dial tone.
To retrieve a parked call
From internal dial tone, dial * * and the line number on which the call is parked.
Dial * * 0 to answer the oldest parked call in the system.
Park recall
If a parked or held call is not retrieved during the period of time (set by the Installer), it will recall to
your phone if your station is idle. You will hear three short ring tones. Lift the handset; you will be
connected to the parked call.
If you are on a call when the recall occurs, you will hear a call waiting tone. To toggle between the
two calls, flash (or hang up, wait for ring, then answer).

Voice mail operation from an analog station
IVX will provide accurate and timely messages. Others will become more comfortable leaving you
voice messages if you pick-up and respond to your messages promptly.
Personal greetings
Initially, your mailbox has a generic greeting: “You have reached the mailbox for extension xxx, dial
zero to reach the operator or begin recording at the tone.” You can record up to three different
personal greetings in your own voice indicating your availability to return calls.
Example:
Greeting 1: “Hi, this is Bill, I’m away from my desk or on the phone, dial zero for the operator, or
leave me a detailed message at the tone and I’ll respond to it promptly.”
Greeting 2: “Hi, this is Bill, I’m out of the office, dial 122 for my assistant, leave me a message at
the tone, I’ll be checking in regularly, or dial 2 now to leave me an urgent message and I’ll be paged
.”
Following is a list of options that you may wish to include in your personal greetings:

6 External message notification
IVX can be programmed to deliver messages to an off-premises phone and/or to page you when a
message has been taken. You can set the phone number (cell phone, home number, another
extension, etc.), the pager number and a delay time--the period that the system is to wait before
attempting to deliver the message/page. You can further set the system to deliver only messages
marked as urgent (see “Urgent messages,” next page).
The administrator can also set for your station the:
• Number to be called or paged
• Delay period
• Number of attempts
• Interval between attempts (in increments of 30 minutes)
• "Quiet period” which suspends message delivery for late night, etc.
If you have programmed both an off-premise delivery number and a pager number, the system will
prompt you to choose one of the following delivery options:
• Phone-only
• Pager-only
• Phone, then pager-- attempts phone delivery until maximum number of attempts has been tried,
then follows paging programming.
• Phone and page at the same time
• No off-premises delivery

Phone delivery
Whenever it receives a new/urgent message into your mailbox, the system will call the number that
you have programmed and play the prompt “You have messages; please enter your password.” The
prompt will repeat three times before assuming that no one has answered and disconnecting.
Upon answering, enter your password (if no password is set, you must enter 0). You will then be
connected to your mailbox and can proceed with normal message retrieval operation.
Note: A “*” response instead of the password will cause the system to suspend calling until
another urgent/new message is received.
Pager notification
Pager notification can be programmed to operate as the sole notification method or in conjunction
with phone delivery.
You can have the system call and activate your external pager whenever the first new/urgent
message is left in your mailbox and repeat the page (at the interval programmed by the
administrator) until all new messages have been retrieved.
Note: Inputting or deleting the phone number that is to be called for off-premise delivery or to
activate your pager will turn the feature on or off, respectively.

Special feature: ACD
ACD agent operation
Important: You are being assigned a special feature not explained in the regular station
user guide or tutorial. Be sure to get your ACD department number from the
system administrator.
An ACD17 department is made up of agents who, when logged on, can receive calls for that department.
Calls go to the logged-on agents who has been idle for the longest time. If all logged-on agents are
busy, IVX places the calls in a holding queue and automatically connects the longest-holding call
when an agent becomes available. While holding, callers hear periodic prompts to continue to
hold. As an ACD department agent, you must have one of your phone's programmable feature keys
18
programmed as an agent log-on/off key (see below) for each ACD department to which you are
assigned. This key lets you manually place yourself in or out of service for that department’s calls.
Note: Even though you may have been assigned to more than one ACD department, you can be
logged into only one department at a time.
Note: If no agents are logged on, incoming calls immediately follow that department’s
call-forwarding routing.
Programming the agent log-on/off key
1. Enter the phone’s help mode by pressing PROG/HELP 0. Then press 3.
2. Press each programmable feature key to determine the location of the log on/off key (the keys
have been assigned beginning with the lower left hand programmable feature key).
3. To program a new key location (or if one has not previously been programmed):
(a.) Access programmable feature key programming (PROG/HELP 2).
(b.) Press the key of the desired location.
(c.) Dial 5 plus the department number (the department number will be from 290 to 299).
(d.) Press the programmable feature key again.
Note: Programming an ACD department key inserts you, as a member, into that department.
Wrap mode
If you have paperwork or other wrap-up activities following a call, you'll appreciate IVX's wrap
mode. While you're logged on as an agent, pressing the programmed wrap key (or placing the call
on Hold) prior to disconnecting from a call will set your station in wrap mode — this delays
immediate assignment of the next call until you have had time to complete any wrap-up activities.
Press the wrap key again to release your station from wrap mode and be available for the next call.
Note: The Installer may have set a maximum allowable wrap time. If so, when you're in wrap mode,
the upper-right portion of the display will show a count-down timer indicating the amount of
time remaining in wrap mode. At the expiration of this timer, you will automatically be
available for the next call.

Note: If you leave your desk and forget to log off, and the system sends a call to your station that is
not answered, your station will be automatically logged off. You must log back on, upon
returning to your station, to be available again for calls for that department.
Display indications
While you are logged on, the display will show the department’s call status as shown below.
• If you're logged on but idle:
10/12 11:09 AM
Q: 0 WAIT
• If you're logged on and you are on a call, the display shows the Caller ID (or line number) and
duration of the current call on the top line of the display. The bottom line shows the Department
name momentarily and then is replaced by the number of calls waiting in queue and the longest
hold time:
XYZ CO

Special feature: ACD
While logged on: no DND, monitor mode or call forward
While you are logged on as an agent, the system will deny your station the ability to place your
phone in DND or monitor mode or to call-forward calls.
When you log off, your station returns to normal regarding these capabilities.
Call waiting
While you are logged on as an agent, calls routed to you as a member of an ACD department will
not call-wait to your station. However, calls that have dialed your extension number directly will
call-wait.
ACD administrator key
A programmable feature key allows a user to view the call activity of an ACD group. Set a
programmable feature key with 5 6 3 and the ACD department number (for example,
5 6 3 2 9 0), and then press the key. It will glow green and the bottom line of an ACD group's
display will appear until you press the key again.
To program an ACD administrator key:
1. Enter programming mode by pressing PROG/HELP.
2. Press the desired programmable feature key.
3. Press 5 6 3 followed by the ACD department number.
Note: If you don’t know the department number, contact your system administrator.
4. Press the same programmable feature key again.
Note: While you’re logged on, your phone’s display will show the department’s call status
(see “Display indications,” page C.2); however, department calls won’t be directed to

Special feature: Guest mailboxes
Guest mailboxes
Important: You are being assigned a special feature not explained in the regular station user
guide or tutorial. Be sure to get your guest mailbox number from the administrator.
Guest mailboxes (300–489) are perfect for personnel such as outside sales or manufacturing
personnel who do not have an internal extension assigned to them but still need a mailbox. You
can handle a guest mailbox as it were a regular extension (i.e., list it in the directory, assign a
programmable feature key for transfer to it, etc.).
Note: A guest mailbox must have at least one personal greeting recorded to be activated and able
to accept messages.
Personal greetings
You can record up to three different personal greetings in your own voice indicating your availability
to return calls. Also, you can change the personal greetings as often as necessary by recording over
a previously recorded personal greeting. (See “Select personal greeting,” page D.5, to learn how to
program these greetings.)
Examples
Greeting 1: Hi, this is [name] at [company]. I’m away from my desk or on the phone right now; so
please either dial zero to reach our operator, or leave me your name, number and
message at the tone and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
Greeting 2: Hi, this is [name] at [company]. I’m outside of the office. You may dial 122 for my
assistant. If you prefer, you may leave me a voice message at the tone — I’ll be
checking in regularly — or, if it’s important, dial 2 now to leave me an urgent
message that will page me automatically.
Greeting 3: Hi, this is [name] at [company]. It’s after normal business hours here, so please leave
a message at the tone and I'll respond on the next business day.
Following is a list of options that you may wish to include in your personal greetings:

Off-premises message delivery
IVX can be programmed to deliver messages to an off-premises phone and/or to page you when
your voice mailbox receives a message. You can set the phone number (cell phone, home number,
another extension, etc.), the pager number and a delay time (the period that the system is to wait
before attempting to deliver the message/page). You can further set the system to deliver only
messages marked as urgent (see "Urgent messages,” next page).
The administrator can also set for your station the:
• Number to be called or paged
• Delay period
• Number of attempts
• Interval between attempts (in increments of 30 minutes)
• "Quiet period” which suspends message delivery for late night, etc.
If you have programmed both an off-premise delivery number and a pager number, the system will
prompt you to choose one of the following delivery options:
• Phone-only
• Pager-only
• Phone, then pager — Attempts phone delivery until maximum number of attempts has been
tried, then follows paging programming.
• Phone and page at the same time
• No off-premises delivery
Message delivery to a phone
Whenever your mailbox receives a new/urgent message (see "Urgent messages,” below), the
system will call the number that you have programmed and play the prompt:
"You have messages. Please enter your password.”
The prompt will repeat three times before the system assumes that no one has answered (i.e.,
because it has "heard” no password) and disconnects.
Upon answering, enter your password (if you have set your password options for no password, you
must enter 0 as your password). You will then be connected to your mailbox and can proceed with
normal remote operation (see "Retrieving voice mail messages from an off-premises location,”
page A.26).
Note: A “*” response instead of the password will cause the system to suspend calling you until it
receives the next new/urgent message.

Group/broadcast mailboxes
Important: You are being assigned a special feature not explained in the regular
station user guide or tutorial. Be sure to get your group mailbox number from
the administrator.
Before we proceed: A note about Quick Groups
™
Any user can use the Quick Groups feature to send a message to any combination of users (for
each of whom a station key has been programmed) without having to create specific group
mailboxes. No programming is required to initiate Quick Groups.Group Mailboxes are used if the
members of the group rarely change or if members want to be able to easily leave messages for one
another, etc.
Introduction to group mailboxes
Group mailboxes let you broadcast a “master” message to all members of a pre-defined group of
users (or guest mailboxes). When you record a master message in the group mailbox, IVX instantly
copies it into the mailbox of each member who has recorded a personal greeting.
Note: A member can only delete or save his copy of a group message; the group mailbox will retain
a saved group message until deleted.
The master message remains in the group mailbox until all members have saved their copies or
deleted them from their mailboxes. If you delete the master message from the group mailbox, all
remaining copies will automatically be deleted from the member's mailboxes.
Example:
You have left a group message reminding everyone in the group of a meeting for Friday.
The following Monday, if the message is still in the group mailbox (indicating that at
least one of the parties has not deleted the message), you can delete it from the group
mailbox which will delete it from all member mailboxes who have not yet heard the
message and deleted from their mailbox
You may give the group mailbox number and password to others to allow them to also record
master messages. Setting “0” as the password eliminates the password requirement.
Introduction to the broadcast mailbox
So that you may easily contact all users on the system, IVX’s Group Mailbox 500 automatically
consists of all station users who have personal greetings recorded.

Special feature: Cascade paging mailboxes
Cascade paging mailboxes
Important: You are being assigned a special feature not covered in the regular station user
guide or tutorial. Be sure to get your cascade paging mailbox number from the
system administrator.
A cascade paging mailbox pages up to three designated numbers (of up to 24 digits each) in a
sequence called a cascade.
If a cascade paging mailbox receives a new message, IVX will page the first number for a set
number of times. If it receives no response, IVX then pages a second number for a set number of
times. If, again, there is no response, IVX pages the third paging number; and the system will then
page all three pagers, in sequence, until someone does finally retrieve the message. This is useful
for a variety of individuals who must be “on-call” after hours, such as doctors, plumbers, technical
support representatives, wrecker drivers and volunteer fire fighters.
Programming your cascade paging mailbox
Press PROG/HELP, * , the cascade paging mailbox number and then # to confirm. You will be
prompted for recording mailbox greetings; password administration, programming the pager
numbers and intervals; and accessing previously deleted messages.
To set the pager numbers, you will be prompted to enter each paging number and the number of
times that it is to be paged before the next paging number is also paged.
Note: Enter only the paging number; do not include the line access code (9, 8 or 71–76). To insert
a two-second pause, press CONF.
Note: For those situations where more than one cascade paging mailbox is in operation, IVX
automatically sends the mailbox number to the display of a digital pager, to indicate which
mailbox has new messages.

At the conclusion the caller can be forwarded to another extension, mailbox, or automatically
disconnected. Include in the last question the appropriate information such as: “This is the last
question. After you have finished, please hang up….”
Note: If the caller does not respond to two questions in a row, the call will be disconnected.
Q & A mailboxes are turned “on” only when questions have been recorded. Deleting all questions
will turn “off” the mailbox.
Programming Q & A mailboxes
1. Press PROG/HELP, *, the Q & A mailbox number and then # to confirm.
2. You will be prompted to do one of the following:
(a.) Record the questions
(b.) Change the password
or
(c.) Access previously deleted messages.
(See the following explanations.)
3. When finished, exit by hanging up.
1 Select question
Select the desired question number, 1–10. IVX will play the question and give you the option to
perform one of the following:
1 Record question
Begin recording at the tone; press 1 to stop. The new question automatically replaces the old one
with that question number.
Note: The mailbox will not be enabled if no questions exist.

2 Delete question
When prompted, press 2 again to confirm deletion. If you delete a question in the middle of a list
without replacing it, the playback numbers of the other messages will not change (this is
important only for your knowledge in programming, since the system itself won’t introduce each
question to the caller as “Question 3,” “Question 6,” etc.).
Example:
If you deleted question number 3 out of 5 questions, the system would play only
questions 1, 2, 4, and 5 to a caller. When you retrieve the playback, two beep tones will
separate answers 2 and 4.
3 Hear current question
2 Password
The password may consist of 2 to 8 digits followed by # (0 cannot be the first digit). If you prefer not
to have to enter a password, enter 0 as the entire password.
9 Message Recycle Bin (un-delete)
IVX stores your most recently deleted 10 messages in a Message Recycle Bin to allow you to
recover, or "un-delete,” messages that may have been deleted in error. Press 9 to advance through
deleted messages. Press 8 to restore a message to your mailbox as an old message.
Retrieving messages from a Digital Feature Phone
Press VOICEMAIL, * , and the mailbox number.
Virtual Mailbox Key™
To help monitor that all messages have been picked up, you can program a programmable feature
key on any Digital Feature Phone as a Virtual Mailbox Key for the Q & A mailbox. When new
messages exist, the key will blink rapidly; press it to connect automatically to the mailbox.
Program the programmable feature key with VOICEMAIL, *, and the mailbox number (see
“Programmable feature keys,” page A.30).
Retrieving messages when off-premises
1. Call the main number.
2. If the auto attendant main greeting answers, press * and the Q & A mailbox number.
If a live operator answers, have the operator transfer you (by pressing VOICEMAIL and *,
followed by entry of the mailbox number).

Operator station
Live outside calls
If your station has been designated to receive live outside calls — i.e., those that have neither
come through the IVX auto attendant nor been transferred — your Digital Feature Phone will:
(a.) Display that you are receiving an outside call
(b.) Ring with a double cadence (internal calls ring with a single cadence).
While you’re on a call, additional live calls to your station will ring with a subdued ring.
To answer any additional calls, you must do one of the following:
• Disconnect from the current call.
• Transfer the current call.
• Place the current call on hold or park.
You can press RELEASE to drop a current call and automatically be connected to the next ringing call.
Note: If your station is able to receive both live outside calls and calls transferred to you from the
auto attendant, you may wish to turn off call waiting at your station (to avoid confusion
between a call waiting tone in your earpiece and a subdued ring from a live outside call).
Operator station
If your station has been designated as the operator station, you will also receive calls when a caller
dials 0 in the auto attendant or from a station.
Your display will indicate that the call ringing is one of the following:
• A call for the operator — Someone dialed 0.
• A call for your extension — Someone dial your extension number.
As the operator, you may be responsible to manually change the Day/Night Mode of the system; if
so, you must program a programmable feature key to perform this (initially, the upper left key will
be the day/night mode Key). Each time the key is pressed the display will change: DAY, NGT, HDAY
or AUTO. If you select either DAY, NGT or HOL, the system will operate in day, night or holiday mode
until you manually change it again. (If the Installer has programmed an automatic calendar,
selecting AUTO will set the system to follow that calendar.)

64-Key Expansion Console
64-Key Expansion Console
The 64-Key Expansion Console adds 64 more programmable feature keys to your station (for a
station total of 80).
You program and operate the Console exactly the same as you do the 16 programmable feature
keys on your Digital Feature Phone.
To program the console:
1. Press PROG/HELP and then 2.
2. Press the desired programmable feature key.
3. Dial the digits to program the key.
4. Confirm the programming by pressing, again, that same programmable feature key.
Note: The system will prompt you through steps 2–4 after you perform step 1.
See “Programmable feature keys,” page A.30, for the options available.
Note: Only one key can exist per extension, feature or operation.
If you program a second key for the same extension, feature or operation, this automatically
erases the first key so programmed, thus making it available for a new extension, feature or
operation.
Hint: You may find it easier to write in the names on the overlay before you program the keys and
attach the overlay to the Console.
