1.2.10 Accessing an Outside Line
If the System Administrator has given you permission to access outside lines from within the Message
Center, you will be able to make external calls by pressing 7 from within from the main Message Center
menu. This permits making calls from off-site locations using the company’s outside lines and Caller ID.
Tips for using this feature:
• Pressing 7 provides a dial tone from which external phone numbers can be dialed.
•
Numbers are dialed directly. You do NOT need to dial 9 or 78 +PIN before the phone number.
•
To disconnect (hang up) the call and return to the dial tone, press *#.
•
Once you have connected an external call, if the external party hangs up you will get a dial tone from which
additional calls can be placed.
•
To return to the main menu from the dial tone, press * #, and then re-enter your Message Center password
followed by #.
†
†
Note: The ability to hang up a call and return to a dial tone using *# is not available for certain
combinations of originating phones and outside lines. See the System Administrator for more information.
1.2.11 Placing Internal Calls within Message Center
From the main Message Center menu, you can call any internal extension. Dial * plus the extension.
Note: The Message Center audio prompts do not mention this option.
For Example: Mary calls her voicemail from home. She listens to three new messages and then decides
she needs to call John. Mary enters *101 and is immediately transferred to John.

User’s Guide – Release 7.3
1.3
Placing Internal Calls when Leaving a Voicemail
If your call to an internal extension is directed to Allworx voicemail, it is possible to dial any other internal
extension. This is accomplished by dialing * plus the extension or “0” † (without the *) for the operator. If this
is done during the playing of the user’s outgoing message, the call will be placed immediately. If it is done
during or after leaving a message, the message will be delivered and then you will be transferred to the
extension you dialed.
For example: Mary calls John’s extension but he is not at his desk so his voicemail answers. Mary decides
she would rather talk to Jim instead of leaving John a voicemail. She dials *102 and is immediately
transferred to Jim’s extension.
You may want to mention this in your voicemail greeting, to assist callers. For example: When Mary is on
the road she records her voicemail greeting to say: “Hi this is Mary. I am traveling today. If you need to
speak to someone immediately, please dial *100 now to reach Jack (or 0† for the operator), otherwise leave
a message at the beep.”
Note: Leaving a pause at the end of the greeting gives callers time to enter the extension before the beep.
1.4
Announce Only Call Handling
Users can configure their voicemail to prevent callers from leaving message. The option is separate for
each presence setting.
To configure Announce Only Call Handling:
1. If you have not already done so, record a greeting for the Presence that will be used for Announce
Only. Do this using the procedure in Section 1.4.3, Manage Greetings. After you have completed
recording and saving the greeting, hang up.
2. Log into the Allworx Message Center
3. Press 4: To change your Message Center system settings
4. Press 3: To manage your greetings
5. Press 0 - 7: Choose the default or desired Presence greeting
6. Press 4: To prevent callers from leaving messages

Digit may vary per system. Please check phone functions tab of the My Allworx Manager page or consult with your Administrator.

†
Have another user transfer the incoming call to ext 408 .
Note: If a busy signal is heard when calling the conference extension, it is possible that the Conference
Center feature has not purchased or implemented. See the System Administrator for more
information.
When the caller arrives to the Conference Center, a welcome message will be played, followed by a
prompt asking for the Conference ID. If the Conference ID is valid and there are available seats (limit of
eight (8) attendees per conference on 6x and 24x; limit of 30 attendees per conference on 48x), a prompt
will play asking for the corresponding password. If the password is valid the caller will be placed into the
conference.
Any callers currently present in the conference will hear a “ding” signaling the entrance of a new caller and
a “dong” when a current member leaves.
3.4
Conference Termination
Scheduled conferences are guaranteed to last their full duration and will automatically be extended while
users are still logged into the conference. However, once a conference has gone beyond the scheduled
end time it is subject to automatic termination.
Allworx 6x
A scheduled or unscheduled conference that is currently being used will automatically be terminated when
another conference is scheduled to begin. Initiation of an unscheduled conference will not terminate
conferences that are in session. Termination is more probable with the 6x, since the system only allows for
one active conference at a time.
Allworx 24x, 48x
When all conferences are in use, the unscheduled conference with the oldest start time will be terminated
first. If none of the unscheduled conferences are in use (i.e. All conferences being used are scheduled
conferences), the conference that is the farthest past its scheduled duration will be terminated. Initiation of
an unscheduled conference will not terminate conferences that are in session.
Note: In order for a conference to be terminated automatically, all four (4) available conferences have to
be in use, whether scheduled or unscheduled.

4 My Extension
The most commonly used routing of a personal extension is to ring the person's phone and if it is not
answered, forward the call to the person's voicemail. However, other special purpose routing is possible in
the Allworx system. Examples of these optional routes are:
•
Presence-Specific Routing: When on vacation, forward the call directly to voicemail.
•
Multiple Destinations: Ring multiple phones at the same time simultaneously.
•
Multiple Connection Attempts: Rings a series of phones when the primary phone is not answered.
•
On-Busy Routing: Rings alternate phone when the line is busy.
•
Follow-Me-Anywhere: Forward the call to a cell phone or home phone.
•
Caller ID Based Routing: Separate call route that is dependant on the Caller ID of the incoming call.
Different call routes can be established for each of the seven (7) user presences. In Office, At A Meeting,
On Vacation, On Business Trip, At Home, Away, and calls received when Busy can be directed to go to
different destinations.
The System Administrator can configure permissions for users to define the routing of their extensions. The
following sections describe how to define the routing for an extension, starting with basic routing.

4.1
Basic Routing
The building blocks of a call route are the Connection Attempts, Destinations, and Finally route. In the
typical call route mentioned before (ring phone, forward to voicemail), there is one Connection Attempt
where the Destination is the handset of the primary extension and the Finally route is the voicemail inbox.
Each of these building blocks can be changed in My Allworx Manager (See Section 2, My Allworx Manager
for more information).
1. Select the My Extensions tab.
2. Below each Presence there is a section labeled Call Route for calls from all callers. If permission to
change the call routes has been give, then a Modify link will be present towards the right. Scroll to
the desired presence state, and then select the Modify link to the right (See Figure 4.1).
3. In the Call Routes section, if a connection has not yet been added, click on the add a connection
attempt link. If the First connection attempt is already established, go to the next step.
4. The drop down menu that appears in the First connection attempt section provides a list of
Handsets, User Extensions, Call Monitors, and the Follow Me option. Choose the desired
destination.
5. The last step is to configure the Finally route, which is the desired ending for the call if the call is not
answered.
6. Any changes made to the call route of one presence can be assigned to the other presences by
selecting apply these changes to all of my presences check box.
7. Once satisfied with the selections, click the Update Call Route button at the bottom of the page. To
see the button, scrolling down may be required.
8. To switch the extension’s presence, once the call routes have been configured, select the My
Presence tab. Choose the appropriate presence, and then click the Change Presence button.

Follow-Me-Anywhere
Calls can be forwarded to other phones outside of the Allworx System such as cell or home phones. If the
recipient does not answer the call, it will be directed back to the system in order to follow the rest of the
configured call route. In following the rest of the call route, unanswered Follow Me calls may eventually be
directed to the Finally route which permits callers to leave messages in the default voicemail inbox. If
having callers leave messages on the personal phone’s voicemail is preferred, do not use the Follow Me
features. Instead, use the Finally route to direct calls to the cell or home phone by entering the phone
number into the Dial number text box.
Note: When an outside phone answers the call, the default is for the recipient will hear a prompt
requesting that a 1 be entered to accept the call. However, User extensions can be configured so
that Follow Me calls to their extensions require a Message Center password in order to accept the
call. See the System Administrator for more information.
1. Using the Basic Routing procedure or a combination of the other procedures, select Follow Me 
from the drop down menu in the connection attempt.
2. In the text box that appears to the right, enter 9 † or 78†+PIN (to gain an outside connection) and the
phone number.
Examples: 9+1+aaa-xxx-nnnn, 9+xxx-nnnn,
78+PIN+1+aaa-xxx-nnnn, 78+PIN+xxx-nnnn
3. Select the desired number of rings. The Follow Me feature requires the recipient to listen to a
message and enter a code. Therefore, increment the normal number of rings by two in order to give
the recipient extra time to answer the call.
