THE APPLICABLE AVAYA AFFILIATE (“AVAYA”).
Avaya grants you a license within the scope of the license types described below, with the exception of Heritage Nortel Software, for which the
scope of the license is detailed below. Where the order documentation does not expressly identify a license type, the applicable license will be
a Designated System License. The applicable number of licenses and units of capacity for which the license is granted will be one (1), unless a

feature key, location or other specific designation, or to be provided by End User to Avaya through electronic means established by Avaya
specifically for this purpose.
Concurrent User License (CU). End User may install and use the Software on multiple Designated Processors or one or more Servers, so long
as only the licensed number of Units are accessing and using the Software at any given time. A “Unit” means the unit on which Avaya, at its
sole discretion, bases the pricing of its licenses and can be, without limitation, an agent, port or user, an e-mail or voice mail account in the
name of a person or corporate function (e.g., webmaster or helpdesk), or a directory entry in the administrative database utilized by the
Software that permits one user to interface with the Software. Units may be linked to a specific, identified Server.
Database License (DL). End User may install and use each copy of the Software on one Server or on multiple Servers provided that each of
the Servers on which the Software is installed communicates with no more than a single instance of the same database.
CPU License (CP). End User may install and use each copy of the Software on a number of Servers up to the number indicated in the order

Introduction:
1. Introduction
This guide is for 9500 Series telephones supported an IP Office telephone system running in any mode other than Basic
Edition mode.
· 9500 Series Telephones
The 9504 and 9508 phones are supported on IP Office systems only. They are physically and functionally the same
as their 9400 Series equivalents but are not supported on other Avaya telephone systems.
· Unsupported Features
The 9500 Series phones are supported on a number of Avaya telephone systems and support different features
depending on the telephone system. This guide covers only the features supported on an IP Office telephone
system.
1.1 Important Safety Information
! Warning: This handset may pick up small metal objects such as metal pins or staples.
· During a power surge, EFT (Electronically Fast Transients), or ESD (Electrostatic Discharge), calls may be dropped.
After a power surge, EFT or ESD, it is normal for the phone to restart.
· Using a cell phone, mobile phone, GSM phone or two-way radio in close proximity to an Avaya telephone might
cause interference.
· The phone should not be connected directly to the outdoor telecommunication network.
Note for Australian installations only:
Installations of the 9408/9508 terminal with an 1151 PSU and BM12 must be restricted to the same building as the host
Gateway. That is, the 9408/9508 – if installed with an 1151 PSU and BM12 – cannot be connected in a campus
environment where the 9408/9508 terminal is installed in a building separate from the building housing the Gateway.
This application cannot be used with exposed (out-of-building) wiring.
For installations in which the 9408/9508 is used without the 1151 PSU and BM12, campus connections are acceptable:
the 9408/9508 can be located in a separate building in these cases.
This restriction applies to Australian installations only.

Introduction: Phone Keys
1.6 Status Letters
When your own extension name is shown on the second line of the display, for example when the phone is idle, the name
may be followed by a series of letters. These letters are used to indicate your current status.
· B = Barred
A B is shown on your phone's display when the system administrator has prohibited you from making outgoing
calls. You will only be able to make internal calls when your status is set to Barred.
· D = Diverting (Forwarding) Calls
A D is shown after your extension name on the phone's idle display when you have 'forward unconditional'
enabled.
· G = Group Member (In Group)
A G is shown after your extension name on the phone's idle display when you have been configured as a member
of a hunt group and your membership is enabled. With this status active, you may receive calls targeted to the
hunt group.
· N = No Calls (Do Not Disturb)
An N is shown after your extension name on the phone's idle display when you have 'do not disturb' enabled.
· O = Out of Service
When a group is set to night service mode, all members of that group retain an 'out of service' status indicated by
an O on the idle display. Calls are diverted to the group's fallback, if set. Otherwise, the calls are sent to voicemail
(if available).
· R = Resilience
An R is shown after your extension name on the phone's idle display to indicate that your phone is working in
resilience mode. This is used when there may have been a problem with the telephone system to which your
phone was registered and another system is currently providing support for your phone. In this mode, some
features may not be available and calls may be routed differently.
· S = System Alarm
If you are configured as a system administrator
134 ,
an S in the phone's display indicates a system alarm
139 .
· T = Twinned
A T is shown after your extension name on the phone's idle display if it is internally twinned with your phone. Calls
to you will alert on both phones and can be answered by you at either phone.
1.7 The Phone Stand
The phones all include a stand that clips to the base of the phone. The stand allows the phone to be used in either of two
different angles.
When changing the position of the stand, be sure to check that the stand has locked into the chosen position. A small
plastic peg is located just under the phone's handset. This peg can be reversed to more securely anchor the handset
when the stand places the phone in an upright position.
The stand cannot be flipped to another position except by removing it to change the position. The angle of the display is
not adjustable on these phones.
Other Stands
If the phone needs to be used in a situation other than on a desk, for example wall-mounted, a number of other stand
designs are available from Avaya. Contact your system administrator.

Issue 10c (13 April 2015)
2. Making Calls
If you are not already on a call, then you can just dial the number. The first available appearance button will be used for
the call. Alternatively, you can press a specific appearance button in order to make a call using that button.
If the number you dial matches a user or group on the telephone system, the directory name of the user or group is
shown and the call starts altering the target.
If the call is to a user, and they do not answer, you can set a callback by pressing CallBack and then ending the call by
pressing Drop. When a callback is set, the next time a user uses their phone or ends their current call, the system will
call you and when you answer, automatically make another call to the user.
2.1 En-Bloc Dialing
By default, when you start dialing a number on your phone, the phone immediately connects to the telephone system
and starts passing the digits you dial to the phone system. You cannot correct the digits you have already dialed except
by ending the call and starting over. Also, if you pause dialing for too long the phone system may think that you have
finished dialing and will attempt to connect the call using only the digits you had dialed up to that point.
En-bloc dialing allows you to compose and edit the number to dial on your phone's display before it is sent to the phone
system to be dialed.
Through the phone's menus you can select whether you want to use traditional or en-bloc dialing when making calls. Your
chosen setting is then applied whenever you use a phone that supports en-bloc dialing.
Dialing a Number Using En-Bloc Mode
1. With no connected call on the phone, start dialing. Do not lift the handset or select headset or speaker before
dialing.
2. You can use the
left arrow key or the Bksp key to delete the previous digit dialed if you need to correct the
number or press Clear to erase the whole number.
3. When you have completed the number, you can select how you want to make the call:
· Lift the handset to make a call using the handset.
· Press the Call soft key or OK button to start the call using the phone's default handsfree audio path 120
(speaker or headset). You can also press one of your idle call appearance buttons to make the call using that
appearance.
· Press the Headset button to start the call on a headset connected to your phone.
· Press the Speaker button to start the call on your phone's handsfree speaker.
Enabling/Disabling En-Bloc Dialing
You can enable or disable your en-bloc dialing setting through the phone's Features menu.
1. Press the Features soft key if shown. To do this during a call, press the
Features soft key.
PHONE key and then press the
2. Use the

Holding and Parking Calls:
5.1 Holding Calls
You can hold one or more calls.
· The held call will still occupy the appearance button on which it was made or answered.
· The caller will hear music on hold. If your system does not have music on hold available, the caller will hear double
beep tones every few seconds.
· If you have more than one held call, or one held call and a connected call, pressing the Conference soft key will
start a conference between yourself and the calls.
Calls that you have held will return to your phone (when idle) if they remain on hold for too long. The default return
delay is 15 seconds. Your hold recall can be changed by the system administrator. Returning calls ignore any forwarding
or do not disturb settings.
Important - Holding Conference Calls
You can hold a conference call in the same way as holding a normal call. Holding the conference call does not affect the
other conference parties who can continue talking. You will also still be listed as a member of the conference call in the
conference details.
Warning: This only applies to conference calls hosted by your own telephone system. Holding your call to a conference
hosted on another telephone system may cause that conference to hear your system's music on hold.
5.1.1 Holding a Call
1. To put your current call on hold, press the Hold soft key or the call's appearance button.
2. The held call will be indicated by its call appearance button with a fast-flashing green lamp. On phones with only a
single call appearance button (or icon), the phone displays "On-Hold" before the call information on the call's
application line.
3. While held, the caller will hear music on hold. If your system does not have music on hold available, the caller will
hear double beep tones every few seconds.
4. You can scroll the display using the
up and down
arrow keys. The held call will appear with a
icon.
5.1.2 Taking a Call Off Hold
Either of the following methods can be used to retrieve a call from hold. If you have a currently connected call, that call
will be automatically put on hold.
1. Press the appearance button with the fast-flashing red lamp call appearance.

5.1.3 Switching Between Calls
With a call on hold (fast-flashing appearance button) and another call connected (red call appearance button), you can
switch between calls by pressing the appearance button of the held call. The current call is automatically put on hold and
the previously held call is connected.
When you place a call on hold 33 in order to make a transfer 41 , the call is considered 'on hold pending transfer' and is
indicated by fast-flashing red and green appearance buttons. On phones with only a single appearance button (or icon),
the phone displays "On-Hold-Xfer" before the call information on the call's application line.
5.1.4 Transferring a Held Call
There are various call transfer scenarios to consider:
1. If you have multiple calls on hold and you want to transfer a connected call to one of the held calls:
· Press the Transfer soft key and use the
up and down
arrow keys to select the desired call appearance.
When you are satisfied, press Complete to transfer the call while the other held call(s) remain on hold.
2. If you have calls on hold but you want to connect your current call with a new destination:
· Press the Transfer soft key and enter the destination manually using the numerical keypad and press
Complete. Alternatively, press Dir to select a destination from the directory 58 or use the Redial option, if
applicable.
3. If you have a destination call connected but you wish to refer back to the originating call before completing the
transfer:
· Do NOT press Complete to transfer the destination call as in scenario #2. Select the originating call ('on hold
pending transfer') by pressing its call appearance button. This will place the destination call 'on hold pending
transfer' so that you can notify the originating caller. With the originating call connected, you can now press
Complete to connect the two calls. Held calls that are not pending transfer will not be affected. Moreover, it is
not possible to have more than one call 'on hold pending transfer.'
Note: It is also possible to transfer a held call by starting a conference 46 and then dropping yourself 47 from that
conference. However, if you are the only internal user in the conference, depending on your telephone system's
configuration, dropping yourself might end the conference.

5.2.3 Park & Page
This method of parking calls is available only if specifically configured on your telephone system. To use it, you also need
to add a Park & Page button on your phone. See Button Features 102 .
Park and page uses a set of park slot numbers, configured by your system administrator, that act like extension
numbers. When you parked a call in one of those park slots, you or any other user on the system can dial that park slot
number to unpark the call.
Your system administrator can also configure up to 3 hunt groups for paging. When you park a call, after displaying the
park slot number used, your phone displays options for paging.
Calls parked using Park & Page are not indicated in your phone's Status menu. However, calls that you park will recall to
your phone if left parked for too long.
If your phone has any Call Park buttons set to match the park slot numbers configured for Park & Page, those buttons
can be used to park/unpark calls and indicate when a call is parked in that park slot. However, when used to park a call,
the phones does not display the page options.

13. Logging In/Out
You may always use the same phone in the same location. However, the telephone system provides a number of features
that allow you to use any phone on the system to make and receive calls.
· Log In 77
You can log in at any phone that you want to use. All your calls are then redirected to that phone and your user
settings are applied to calls made and received. If it is a phone that stores your contacts and call history on the
system, your contacts and call log are displayed by the phone.
· Any other existing user of that phone is logged out while you are logged in.
· If you were logged in on another phone, you are logged out from it.
· If your phone system is in a Small Community Network (SCN) 151 of phone systems, it may be possible to log
in at extensions located on other phone systems in the network. Your system administrator will advise you if
you can 'remote hot desk' and what features will still be available to you when you do.
· Log Out 78
When you log out from a phone, or are logged out by another user logging in, the telephone system may apply
several actions:
· If you have a normal default extension and no one else is logged in there, you return to being logged in on
that phone.
· If you remain logged out, you are treated the same as being on 'do not disturb' except that all calls to you go
to voicemail instead, if available.
· If you have a mobile twinned number, the system administrator can configure the system so that calls are still
presented to your mobile twin while you are logged out.
· Lock/Unlock 78
Separately from logging in and out, you can lock your phone settings. While locked, the phone can still be used to
answer your calls and can be used to make internal and emergency calls. However it cannot be used to make
external calls and your user settings cannot be accessed through the phones menus.
· You can set your phone to automatically lock itself after a period of inactivity.
· Default Extension
Each extension can be configured with a default user. If you are logged off from an extension, the system will
automatically log you in at your default extension if it is not in use by another user.
· Login Idle Period
Your system administrator can configure a timeout which will automatically log you out if you do not use the phone
in that time to make or answer a call.
Default Short Codes
Short codes are numbers that you can dial to enable and disable various features. The following are default short codes
that may be available. However, your system administrator can remove and change the short codes available to you or
all users.
· Log In: *35*N*P#
Log in to a phone using your extension number (N) and login code (P).
· Log Out: *36
Log yourself out from the phone where you are currently logged in.

14.4 Twinning
Twinning is a process whereby your calls ring on two phones. Twinning is only available if configured by your system
administrator.
The system supports two twinning methods: internal twinning
150
and mobile twinning
151 .
Internal Twinning
This method of twinning twins your normal phone with another internal phone. Your incoming calls will ring on both
phones. You can also make your calls from either extension.
A typical example for internal twinning would be a user who uses both a normal desk phone and also needs a mobile
phone while moving around the building.
Your settings are applied to both phones. Similarly, message waiting indication and voicemail access from either phone
will be to your mailbox.
If both phones are phones that store your contacts and call history on the system, the contacts and call history on each
will be the same.
· T = Twinned
A T is shown after your extension name on the phone's idle display if it is internally twinned with your phone. Calls
to you will alert on both phones and can be answered by you at either phone.
Mobile Twinning
Mobile twinning 151 allows your calls to ring at both your phone's and at another phone's number, which can include an
external number. If you have been configured as a mobile twinning user, you can switch the use of mobile twinning on or
off through the phone's menus and can also change the number to which you are twinned.
Using the phone menus, you can switch use of mobile twinning on/off and change the destination number for twinned
calls.
14.4.1 Mobile Twinning Control
This menu option is only available if you have been configured by the system administrator to be able to use mobile
twinning.
· Setting a button to the Twinning function is recommended—contact your system administrator. Such a button
allows you to transfer calls to your twinning destination, retrieve calls from the twinning destination, and access
the menu options below to set the twinning destination number and switch twinning on/off.

15. Groups
Your system administrator can include you as a member of a group along with other users. Each group has its own
extension number which can be used as the destination for a call.
When a call is made to a group, it is presented to the available group members, either one at a time or all at the same
time, until answered by one of the members.
How long a group call will ring at each group member before being presented to the next member is controlled by the
group's own settings. Hunt groups also use voicemail and have their own settings for when an unanswered call should go
to the group's mailbox. For group calls, the hunt group's voicemail settings are used rather than your settings.
The system administrator can enable a number of hunt group menu options on your phone. Each option is enabled for a
selected hunt group or hunt groups of which you are a member:
· Enable/Disable Your Group Membership 97
When your membership of a hunt group is disabled, you no longer receive hunt group calls for that group. You are
still a member of the group and can re-enable your membership.
· Change the Hunt Group Service Status 98
Each hunt group can either be in service, in night service, or out of service. When in night service or out of
service, the groups calls are redirected to an alternate group, or to voicemail if available.
· Change the Hunt Group Fallback Destination 98
These menus allow you to change the alternate groups used for the group's calls when it is in night service or out
of service status.
Default Short Codes
Short codes are numbers that you can dial to enable and disable various features. The following are default short codes
that may be available. However, your system administrator can remove and change the short codes available to you or
all users.
· Night Service Status On: *20*N#
Set a hunt group into night service status by entering its extension number (N).
· Night Service Status Off: *21*N#
Take a hunt group out of night service status by entering its extension number (N).

system to be dialed.
Through the phone's menus you can select whether you want to use traditional or en-bloc dialing when making calls. Your

22.1 Abbreviated Ring
A single non-repeated ring. By default, this is the type of ring used when another call alerts you and you already have a
call in connected.
22.2 Appearance Button
Appearance buttons are used to represent calls made and received by you and other users on the telephone system.
They are configured by your system administrator. Normally, your first three buttons are call appearance buttons, but
additional buttons can be configured as appearance buttons.
22.3 Attention Ring
Your system administrator can set what ringing should be used if another call alerts you and you already have a call
connected. The options are a single non-repeated ring (abbreviated ring) or no ring.
22.4 Auto Hold
By default, when you have a connected call in progress, if you press another appearance button, the connected call is
automatically put on hold. Without auto-hold, pressing another appearance button ends the connected call.
22.5 Bridged Appearance Button
A bridged appearance button shows the state of one of another user's call appearance buttons. It can be used to answer
or join calls on that other user's call appearance button. It can also be used to make a call that the call appearance user
can then join or retrieve from hold.
· When the user's call appearance button alerts, your matching bridged appearance button also alerts. The bridged
appearance button can be used to answer the call on the call appearance button user's behalf.
· When the call appearance button user answers or makes a call using that call appearance, your matching bridged
appearance button shows the status of that call, for example connected, on hold, etc. The bridged appearance
button can be used to retrieve the call if on hold or to join the call if active.
· Bridged appearance buttons are not supported between users on different systems in a SCN
151 .
22.6 Call Appearance Button
Call appearance buttons are used to display calls to and from your phone. By having several call appearance buttons, you
are able to answer and make several calls, switch between calls, and perform other actions.
When all your call appearance buttons are in use, any further calls to your number follow your 'forward on busy' setting,
if set. Otherwise, calls go to voicemail (if available).
22.7 Call Coverage Button
Each call coverage button is associated with another user on your telephone system. The button allows you to be alerted
when that user has an unanswered call still ringing. You can view the details of the call and answer it if required.
The settings of the user being covered control how long it rings at their phone before it also starts alerting on your call
coverage button for that user. Call coverage appearance buttons are not supported between users on different systems
in a SCN 151 .
22.8 Coverage Ring
If you have any bridged appearance and or call coverage buttons, you can set the type of ringing (coverage ring) 113 that
should be used when a call alerts on any of those buttons. The options are to use normal ringing, a single non-repeated
ring (abbreviated ring) or no ring. The coverage ring setting is only used if you do not already have a connected call. If
you already have a connected call in progress, the shorter of the coverage ring and attention ring settings is used.
22.9 Do Not Disturb
· When you are in 'do not disturb,' your callers are redirected to voicemail if available. Otherwise, you hear a busy
tone.
· The only people who can call you are those calling from numbers in your 'do not disturb' exceptions list.
Forwarding can still be applied to these calls.
· Calls to any hunt group of which you are a member are not presented to you (unless you are the last available
member of the group).
· Enabling 'do not disturb' will not affect any calls already being presented to your phone.
· You can still use the phone to make outgoing calls. When you go off-hook you will hear broken dial tone.
· N = No Calls (Do Not Disturb)
An N is shown after your extension name on the phone's idle display when you have 'do not disturb' enabled.

22.10 Do Not Disturb Exceptions
· These are numbers for callers who can call you even when you are set to 'do not disturb.' This only applies for
calls to you. It does not apply for calls to a hunt group of which you are a member.
22.11 Follow Me
'Follow me to' is used to redirect your calls to another extension where you will be working. The calls are presented with
your user name so that they can be distinguished from calls for the extensions normal user. This allows you to share
another person's phone without logging them off their phone.
All calls are redirected and the calls are still subject to all your user settings as if they were ringing at your phone.
22.12 Follow Me Here
'Follow me here' is the function used to enable 'follow me' at the extension to which you want your calls redirected.
22.13 Follow Me To
'Follow me to' is the function used to enable 'follow me' from your own phone.
22.14 Forward on Busy
'Forward on busy' redirects your calls when your phone is not able to present you with any more alerting calls.
· By default, this function is only applied to incoming external calls made to you. However, if required, internal calls
can also be selected.
· When enabled, all calls matching the settings are forwarded to the number set as the 'forward on busy'/'no
answer' destination. That number can be internal or external.
· 'Busy' is defined has having no available call appearance buttons on which further calls can be presented.
· Hunt group calls are not presented when you are busy and so are not forwarded by this setting.
· The 'forward on busy' and 'forward on no answer' options use the same forwarding destination number. If no
number is set, they use the same destination as set for 'forward unconditional.'
· If you have voicemail enabled 73 , the telephone system will attempt to redirect forwarded calls to voicemail if
they are still unanswered after having rung for your 'no answer' time (default 15 seconds). This is not always
possible for calls that have been forwarded to an external number.
22.15 Forward on No Answer
Forward on no answer redirects calls that have alerted your phone but have not been answered.
· By default this function is only applied to incoming external calls to you. However, if required, internal calls can
also be selected.
· When enabled, all calls matching the settings are forwarded to the number set as the 'forward on busy'/'no
answer' destination. That number can be internal or external.
· No answer is defined as having been presented to your phone for your 'no answer' time (default 15 seconds).
· Hunt group calls are not forwarded.
· The 'forward on busy' and 'forward on no answer' options use the same forwarding destination number. If no
number is set, they use the same destination as set for 'forward unconditional.'
· If you have voicemail enabled 73 , the telephone system will attempt to redirect forwarded calls to voicemail if
they are still unanswered after having rung for your 'no answer' time (default 15 seconds). This is not always
possible for calls that have been forwarded to an external number.
22.16 Forward Unconditional
Forward unconditional can be used to immediately redirect your calls.
· By default this function is only applied to incoming external calls made to you. However, if required, internal calls
and or hunt group calls can also be selected.
· When enabled, all calls matching the settings are forwarded to the number set as the 'forward unconditional'
destination. That number can be internal or external.
· You can still use the phone to make outgoing calls. When you go off-hook you will hear broken dial tone.
· The 'forward on busy' and 'forward on no answer' options use the same forwarding destination number. If no
number is set, they use the same destination as set for 'forward unconditional.'
· If you have voicemail enabled 73 , the telephone system will attempt to redirect forwarded calls to voicemail if
they are still unanswered after having rung for your 'no answer' time (default 15 seconds). This is not always
possible for calls that have been forwarded to an external number.

· D = Diverting (Forwarding) Calls
A D is shown after your extension name on the phone's idle display when you have 'forward unconditional'
enabled.
22.17 Group
Your system administrator can include you as a member of a group along with other users. Each group has its own
extension number which can be used as the destination for a call.
When a call is made to a group, it is presented to the available group members, either one at a time or all at the same
time, until answered by one of the members.
How long a group call will ring at each group member before being presented to the next member is controlled by the
group's own settings. Hunt groups also use voicemail and have their own settings for when an unanswered call should go
to the group's mailbox. For group calls, the hunt group's voicemail settings are used rather than your settings.
22.18 Idle Line Preference
Having one of your phone's call or line appearance buttons set as the currently selected appearance button means it will
be the appearance button used when you go off hook. If this was not the case, you would need to select an appearance
button before going off hook.
Idle line preference automatically selects the first available call appearance or line appearance button as your currently
selected button when you do not have a call connected.
22.19 Internal Twinning
This method of twinning twins your normal phone with another internal phone. Your incoming calls will ring on both
phones. You can also make your calls from either extension.
A typical example for internal twinning would be a user who uses both a normal desk phone and also needs a mobile
phone while moving around the building.
Your settings are applied to both phones. Similarly, message waiting indication and voicemail access from either phone
will be to your mailbox.
If both phones are phones that store your contacts and call history on the system, the contacts and call history on each
will be the same.
22.20 Line Appearance Button
Line appearance buttons allow you to make and receive calls on a specific telephone line connected to your telephone
system. The button also allows you to see when the line is in use by other users.
For incoming calls, the telephone system still determines the destination for the call. That may be a user or group.
However, if you have a line appearance button for the line, you will see that there is a call alerting and can answer it if
required.
· Private Lines
Special behaviour is applied to calls where the user has both a line appearance for the line involved and is also the
Incoming Call Route destination of that call. Such calls will alert only on the Line Appearance button and not on
any other buttons. These calls will also not follow any forwarding.
22.21 Logged Out
If you are logged out from any phone, you are treated as being busy to receiving any calls. Callers follow your forwarding
settings if set or go to voicemail if available.
22.22 Missed Call
Missed calls are calls that ring at your phone but are not answered. Your 10 most recent missed calls are included in your
call log (on 9608, 9611, 9621, and 9641 phones, your 30 most recent missed calls are included in your call log).
The system administrator can configure whether missed calls should include calls that you did not answer but were
answered for you by another user; for example, by a user with a call coverage button set for your calls. If this mode is
enabled, it will also include calls that were answered by your voicemail.
22.23 Missed Group Call
The system administrator can configure whether the telephone system should keep an internal log of missed hunt group
calls. They can then also set which groups of which you are a member, should have their missed calls shown as part of
your missed calls call log. This does not require the group call to have been presented to you and missed.
22.24 Login Code
You can use a login code to log in at any phone on the telephone system and then use that phone as your own. While
logged in, you can use the phone's menus to set and change your login code.

Glossary: Mobile Twinning
22.25 Mobile Twinning
Mobile twinning 151 allows your calls to ring at both your phone's and at another phone's number, which can include an
external number. If you have been configured as a mobile twinning user, you can switch the use of mobile twinning on or
off through the phone's menus and can also change the number to which you are twinned.
22.26 Park Call
Parking a call is similar to holding a call. However, parked calls can be retrieved by other users on the telephone system.
A call that you park and leave parked for too long will recall to your phone. The recall will ignore any 'do not disturb' and
forwarding settings, recalling to the phone from which it was parked.
22.27 Park Slot Number
If you park a call without specifying a park slot number, the system will assign a number based on your extension
number plus a single digit. For example for extension 201, the first parked call will use park slot number 2010 if
available. If you already have a parked call, the next parked call uses park slot 2011 if available and so on up to 2019.
Call park buttons can be configured to match specific park slot numbers. A call parked using that button is given that
park slot number. All users with a call park button set to the same number can see when there is a parked call there and
can unpark that call using their button.
22.28 Ringing Line Preference
This setting is controlled by your system administrator and is normally on. When you are not connected to a call, if you
receive an incoming call, ringing line preference will make the alerting appearance button your selected appearance
button. You can answer the call on the selected appearance button by lifting the handset or pressing the Headset or
Speaker button.
Without ringing line preference, to answer the call on the alerting appearance button you must press the appearance
button to select it manually.
22.29 Short Codes
Short codes are numbers that you can dial to enable and disable various features. The following are default short codes
that may be available. However, your system administrator can remove and change the short codes available to you or
all users.
22.30 Small Community Network
Several telephone systems can be connected together to form a Small Community Network (SCN) 151 . You can then dial
the user on other systems in the same way as for internal calls on your own system. The remote users are listed in the
directory.
The system administrator can also configure which hunt groups are accessible across the network. You may also be able
to hot desk to a phone located on another system in the network.
22.31 System Administrator
The system administrator is able to make or arrange changes to the telephone system configuration. They are able to see
and change most of your user settings.
22.32 System Phone User
Your system administrator can configure some users as 'system phone users.' They will be able to access a range of
additional functions such as changing the system date and time. A 'system phone user' is able to add, edit, and delete
system directory entries.
22.33 Twinning
Twinning is a process whereby your calls ring on two phones. Twinning is only available if configured by your system
administrator.
The system supports two twinning methods: internal twinning
