MANAGING CALLS – ADVANCED FEATURES
In addition to performing the regular functions of placing calls and answering
calls, your phone supports several other advanced functions. If you use any of
these features on a regular basis, you may benefit by having your system
administrator assign the desired function to the custom keys on your phone.
Programmable Custom Buttons
The 560/560g IP phone has six custom buttons that can be programmed with
different functions. The system administrator can configure the custom
buttons via ShoreWare Director on behalf of a user or can enable permissions
for an individual user so that the user can modify the custom buttons on the
IP phone via the telephone interface.
The list below contains the different functions that can be assigned to the
buttons of a phone, allowing you to create shortcuts for operations that would
normally require pressing two or three buttons.
• Barge In – Barge In allows users with proper permission to enter into an
existing call. This feature is useful for certain users including operators,
executive assistants, trainers, and ACD supervisors that must enter calls
for important business reasons. A custom key can be programmed to
invoke the barge in feature as well as optionally include a specific
extension for quick, one-touch feature operation. If you need this
feature, please review with your system administrator.
• Bridged Call Appearance – Bridged Call Appearances shares call
appearance information across many separate IP phones, offering the
benefit of faster call handling between users. The feature is intended for
key system environments (small offices or branch offices), such as an
auto dealership or small bank with 4 trunks and 8 IP phones. Please refer
to “Bridged Call Appearances” on page 37 for more information about
managing calls using Bridged Call Appearances.
• Call Appearance – Call appearance represents a phone call on your
extension. Please refer to “Answering Additional Calls” on page 14 for
more information about managing calls on your extension.
• Conference Blind – The ShoreTel system allows you to conference up to
three parties (six depending on configuration) without having to consult
with each new party before they enter the conference call. Please see
“Making a Conference Call” on page 15 for more information.
• Conference Consultative – The ShoreTel system allows you to
conference up to three parties (six depending on configuration) allowing
you to consult with each new party before they enter the conference call.
Please see “Making a Conference Call” on page 15 for more information.
• Conference Intercom – The ShoreTel system allows you to conference up
to three parties (six depending on configuration) allowing you to consult
using the intercom with each new party before they enter the conference
call. Please see section “Making a Conference Call” on page 15 for more
information.
34
• Dial Mailbox – The ShoreTel system allows you to call another user's
mailbox without ringing their phone. If you use this feature often,
contact your system administrator about programming a custom key. A
custom key can be programmed to invoke the dial mailbox feature as
well as optionally include a specific mailbox for quick, one-touch feature
operation.
• Dial Number (Speed Dial) – The ShoreTel system allows you to program
custom keys on your phone for speed dial, allowing you to dial an
extension or an external number with one touch.
• Intercom – The ShoreTel system allows users with the proper permission
to intercom other users on the system. When you intercom another user,
instead of their phone ringing, the called party will hear a tone then you
will be connected to their speakerphone. The dialed user must be using a
ShoreTel IP phone for proper operation. In addition to the fixed function
key, a custom key can be programmed to invoke the intercom feature
with a specific extension for quick, one-touch feature operation. Please
see “Using the Intercom” on page 16 for more information.
• Monitor Extension – The ShoreTel system allows users with proper
permission to monitor the extension of another user. This helps manage
incoming calls for that extension, and it also serves as a shortcut when
performing one of the following functions: dialing that extension,
transfer, conference, call parking, call pickup and intercom to that
extension. Please see “Extension Monitoring” on page 38 for more
information.
• Page – The ShoreTel system allows users with proper permission to
access the overhead paging system (or page a group of ShoreTel IP
phones), dial the number given by the system administrator, wait for the
confirmation tone, and then begin speaking. The message will be
broadcast over the on-site loudspeaker or through the speakers of the IP
phones. Please see “Overhead Paging” on page 40 and “Using Group
Paging” on page 41 for more information.
• Park – The ShoreTel system allows users to park a connected call on
another extension. Please see “Parking and Unparking Calls” on page 41
for more information.
• Park and Page – This also allows a user to park a call and simultaneously
do an overhead page.
• Pickup – The ShoreTel system allows users with proper permission to
pick up a ringing extension.
• Pickup Night Bell – The ShoreTel system allows calls to route to an
extension that will ring on an overhead speaker. This feature can be
convenient for off-hours when a caller needs to speak with anyone at a
site.
• Pickup/Unpark – The ShoreTel system allows users to park a connected
call on another extension, or unpark the call after it has been parked.
Please see “Parking and Unparking Calls” on page 41 for more
information.
• Record Call – The ShoreTel system allows users with proper permission
to record active calls they are currently on. This feature is useful for
certain users including writers, interviewers, sales people, lawyers that

must record calls for important business reasons. A custom key can be
programmed to invoke the record feature for quick, one-touch feature
operation. If you need this feature, please review with your system
administrator.
Record Extension – The ShoreTel system allows users with proper
permission to record an active call on another extension. This feature is
useful for certain users including ACD supervisors that must record calls
for important business reasons. A custom key can be programmed to
invoke the record feature as well as optionally include a specific
extension for quick, one-touch feature operation. If you need this
feature, please review with your system administrator.
Send Digits Over Call – The ShoreTel system allows users to send a
preconfigured set of DTMF tones out a trunk during a call. This feature is
useful to quickly navigate external IVR systems as well as external
systems requiring an account code. A custom key can be programmed to
invoke the send digits feature as well as include desired digits to be sent
for quick, one-touch feature operation. If you need this feature, please
review with your system administrator.
Silent Monitor – The ShoreTel system allows users with proper
permission to silently monitor a call on another extension. This feature is
useful for certain users including ACD supervisors that must monitor
calls for important business reasons. A custom key can be programmed
to invoke the silent monitor feature as well as optionally include a
specific extension for quick, one-touch feature operation. If you need
this feature, please review with your system administrator.
Transfer Blind – The ShoreTel system allows you to transfer a call to
another party without having to consult with that party before
completing the transfer. Please see “Transferring a Call” on page 15 for
more information.
Transfer Consultative – The ShoreTel system allows you to transfer a call
to another party allowing you to consult with that party before
completing the transfer. Please see “Transferring a Call” on page 15 for
more information.
Transfer Intercom – The ShoreTel system allows you to transfer a call to
another party allowing you to consult with that party using intercom
before completing the transfer. Please see “Transferring a Call” on
page 15 for more information.
Transfer to Mailbox – The ShoreTel system allows you to transfer a call
directly to another party's mailbox. Please see “Diverting a Call” on
page 14 for more information.
Transfer Whisper – The ShoreTel system allows a user with the proper
permission to break into an active call and communicate with one party
without the other party hearing the second ongoing conversation. In this
way, the user can consult with the other party before transferring the call
to him or her. In turn, the call recipient can respond privately (using the
whisper mute feature) without the other party hearing him or her.
Unpark – The ShoreTel system allows users to unpark a connected call
from another extension. Please see “Parking and Unparking Calls” on
page 41 for more information.
• Whisper Page – The ShoreTel system allows users with the proper
permission to enter a call on another extension and whisper to the
recipient without the other party hearing. The call recipient can talk back
to you privately using the whisper page mute feature.
• Whisper Page Mute – If you receive a whisper page, you can speak
privately back to the person using the whisper page mute feature.
Bridged Call Appearances
The Bridged Call Appearances (BCA) feature provides "bridged" information
between many IP phones, offering the benefit of faster call handling between
users. The feature is intended for key system environments, such as a branch
office, auto dealership, or a small bank with 4 trunks and 8 IP phones.
The way the feature works is that a custom button on each IP phone is
configured such that it will blink green when an inbound call arrives on the
extension associated with that BCA. If someone answers the call, the LED on
that person's phone turns solid green while the custom button on all of the
other IP phones turns red. In this way, information about the call to this BCA
extension is shared (or “bridged”) across the many phones in different parts of
the organization.
If you place an outbound call from a bridged call appearance extension, other
users can view the call activity. You can place an outbound call from a BCA
extension by pressing the BCA custom button, dialing the trunk access code
and then dialing the number. The LED on your phone turns solid green, and
the associated button turns solid red on all of the other phones. If the call is
placed on hold, the associated LEDs on all phones blink green. A button can
be programmed for each position in the call stack.
NOTE Pressing the top-most BCA custom button for outbound calls does not
necessarily access trunk 1. There is no one-to-one correlation between
the custom buttons programmed for BCA extensions and a particular
trunk. Outbound calls will follow the routing table defined by the
system administrator.
Another benefit of the BCA feature is that an outbound caller-id can be
associated with that button (configured by the system administrator). The
following rules determine which caller-id is displayed when an outgoing call is
made using BCA:
• Outbound to an internal extension – the name and number of the user
that initiated the BCA call will be used, and if that user is a "private" user,
then the caller-id is blank.
• Outbound to an external number – the caller-id will be used in following
order, based on availability:
• Outbound caller-id configured for that BCA
• DID number configured for that BCA
• External identification or caller-id number of the user that initiated
the BCA call
37
• Outbound to an external emergency number (such as 911) – the
emergency identification or a CESID number of that user will be sent.
For more information about Bridged Call Appearances, see your system
administrator. The system administrator can configure your bridged call
appearances to deliver Caller ID on inbound call, display Caller ID on active
calls, as well as turn on, turn off or delay the ringing on inbound calls.
Silent Monitor / Barge In
With the appropriate permissions (set by your system administrator for both
your phone and the target phone), you can listen to a call without being heard,
or join a call as a fully conferenced participant (“barge in”).
• To silently monitor a call, dial
the call is active.
• To barge in on a call, dial
call is active.
, then the extension on which
, then the extension on which the
NOTE If you use the Silent Monitor and Barge In features often, you should
have your system administrator configure a custom key to provide
one-button operation. See “Programming Your Custom Buttons” on
page 29 for more information.
Extension Monitoring
A monitored extension is a custom key (set by your system administrator) that
helps you manage incoming calls for that extension. It also serves as a shortcut
when performing one of the following functions: dialing that extension,
transfer, conference, call parking, call pickup and intercom to that extension.
Additionally, you can see when the monitored extension has unheard
messages by the
icon.
The ShoreTel 560/560g phone displays icons in the monitored extension's
label area to help you determine the operational status of the monitored
extension.
38
Answering a Monitored Extension's Call
In addition to the visual cues the monitored extension's icons and custom key
LED provide, you will also hear a different ring when a call comes in, and if
you're on a call, you will hear a higher pitched call waiting tone.
An incoming call for a monitored extension appears on your phone like this
(below):
Monitored
extension
Monitored
extension
name
Caller’s name
Caller’s number
Call
duration
Monitored
extension
You can pick up the call while it is ringing by pressing the custom key or by
pressing the Answer soft key. You can send it to the monitored extension's
voice mail by pressing To VM. You can also answer a call after the owner of
the monitored extension has put it on hold by pressing the Pickup soft key.
When you put a call that has come in to the monitored extension on hold, the
call is parked on the owner's phone, so that either of you may pick up the call
again.
The system administrator can configure your monitored extensions to deliver
Caller ID on inbound call, display Caller ID on active calls, turn on, turn off or
delay the ringing on inbound calls.
Whisper Page
With the appropriate permissions (set by your system administrator for both
your phone and the target phone), the Whisper Page feature lets you break
into an active call in order to speak with an internal user. This occurs without
the remote caller hearing the interruption and without you hearing the remote
caller.
To issue a Whisper Page to another user who is on a call, dial
, plus
the extension of that user. Note that the recipient must be on an IP110, IP210,
IP212k, IP230, IP530 or IP560/560g handset. If a Whisper Page call is sent to
39
any other phone (e.g., IP100, SoftPhone, or analog phone) the call will appear
as a second incoming call.
NOTE If you use the Whisper Page feature often, you should have your
system administrator configure a custom key to provide one-button
Whisper Page operation. See “Programming Your Custom Buttons” on
page 29 for more information.
Picking Up the Night Bell
A night bell, when activated by your system administrator, allows calls to
route to an extension that will ring on an overhead speaker. This feature can
be convenient for off-hours when a caller needs to speak with anyone at a site.
If you have access to the night bell function (set by your system
administrator), dial
to answer the call at your site.
If you hear an error tone when you try to pick up the night bell, the night bell
may not be configured at your site or you may not have the necessary
permissions. Contact your system administrator if this occurs.
NOTE If you use the Night Bell feature often, you should have your system
administrator configure a custom key to provide one-button Night Bell
operation. See “Programming Your Custom Buttons” on page 29 for
more information.
Toggling the Hunt Group Status
With the appropriate permissions, you can toggle the hunt group status from
busy to not busy (or vice versa) by dialing
, plus the extension of
the hunt group. This feature is especially useful when hunt group members
are in a meeting or leave work early. If you are a member of more than one
hunt group, you must enter the extension associated with the desired hunt
group after dialing the access code above.
Overhead Paging
If you have permission (set by your system administrator) to access the
overhead paging system, dial the number given to you by your system
administrator and wait for the confirmation tone, and then begin speaking.
Hang up when you are finished.
If you hear an re-order tone or intercept tone when you try to page, paging
may not be configured at your site or you may not have the necessary
permissions. Contact your system administrator if this occurs.
40
Using Group Paging
Similar to the paging feature, you can also send an audible message to a select
group of users that have been configured for group paging. By dialing the
paging group extension associated with those users, you can record a message
that will be broadcast over the individual speakers of those users’ ShoreTel IP
phones.
To use this feature, dial the Group Paging Extension given to you by your
system administrator and wait for the confirmation tone. After you hear the
tone, begin speaking. Note that you are creating a recording that will be
broadcast to the other members of the Paging Group. Hang up when you have
finished recording.
Parking and Unparking Calls
With the appropriate permissions (set by your system administrator), you can
park a connected call on another extension by doing the following:
Step 1
Press the Park soft key.
Step 2
Dial the extension, press its custom key, or use the Directory
to find the party.
Step 3
Press the Park soft key again. To unpark the call, press
Unpark, repeat step 2, and press Unpark again.
NOTE If you use the Park or Unpark feature often, you should have your
system administrator configure a custom key to provide one-button
park operation. See “Programming Your Custom Buttons” on page 29
for more information.

CALL MANAGER SOFTWARE
In addition to using the telephone interface of your 560/560g IP phone to
access the ShoreTel features, you can accomplish many of the same tasks with
ShoreTel’s Call Manager software. ShoreTel's Call Manager software provides a
visual, information-rich interface for managing and controlling
communications – both telephone calls and voice mail.
The user-friendly interface lets you access all of the features and functions of
your ShoreTel IP phone system, including unified messaging, point-and-click
call management, customizable call-handling, and visual voice mail from your
Windows-based PC.
The software works in concert with your 560/560g IP phone to let you
perform the following tasks:
•
•
•
•
•
dial by name or number
change the call handling mode
open a SoftPhone session
keep a 1000-line call history of inbound, outbound, and missed calls
interact with voice messages from your PC
Call Manager frees you from fruitless tasks like playing phone tag, looking up
numbers, struggling to set up conference calls, or interacting with voice mail
messages. Integrated presence eliminates phone tag by letting you know if a
line is busy or if an employee has redirected calls to another destination – all
before dialing. And a visual display of up to 16 callers lets you switch from one
caller to another, transfer callers to another destination, or initiate a
conference with a simple mouse click.
ShoreTel’s Call Manager software comes in five flavors, each offering access to
slightly different capabilities and feature sets:
•
•
•
•
•
Personal Call Manager
Advanced Call Manager
Workgroup Agent Call Manager
Workgroup Supervisor Call Manager
Operator Call Manager
For more information about Personal Call Manager and what features are
available to you, see your system administrator.

WEB ACCESS
ShoreTel Web Access is a browser-based interface by which users can manage
personal options and settings from any web browser from anywhere in the
world. Call handling details and notification settings can be managed securely
and easily from anywhere.
For more information about web access and what features are available to you,
