extensions can go up to 232 (in a four-box cluster). For example, if you have two Bizfon 680s, Unit 1 hosts extensions 201
through 208 and Unit 2 hosts extensions 209 through 216.
Extension 201 rings by default when callers press or dial 201

physical jacks on the Bizfon 680. Virtual extensions have their
own voice mailboxes, and allow users not requiring a physical
extension full access to the Bizfon system.
The Bizfon allows you to set these extensions up to ring at a
telephone of your choice: for example, your cell phone, or your
home number. You can even set up a virtual extension to ring a
specific physical extension (201-208) if, for example, you share
an office with three other people and you are the one using it
today.

Section 3
Setting up Your System
Introduction
This section tells you about the ways that the Bizfon 680 can
handle incoming telephone calls. Incoming call handling refers
to how calls are handled as they come in to the Bizfon 680. This
section provides information on:
•
How to configure the incoming call greeting options for the
Automated Attendant Day and After Hours modes
•
How to configure the Operator extension
•
How to set up informational messages
Once an incoming call is directed to an extension, you can
choose how to handle the call at that extension. See “Section 4
Setting Up and Using Extensions” on page39 for information
on configuring how calls are handled once they reach an extension.
The Automated Attendant Profiles
The Bizfon 680 comes with three pre-set profiles for how the
automated attendant handles incoming calls. You can select one
of these profiles for Day mode and select another for After
Hours mode. The three pre-set profiles are:
•
The default Day mode:
A. Incoming callers hear the Automated Attendant
greeting.
B. If callers do not dial an extension, they are transferred to
the operator.
C. If the call is not answered, the call goes to the Operator
mailbox.
Bizfon Administrator’s Guide
19
Section 3 Setting up Your System
The default After Hours mode is essentially the same,
except:
A. The After Hours greeting is played.
B. If callers do not dial an extension, all extensions ring.
C. Then the call goes into the Operator mailbox if the call
is not answered.
•
Auto Attendant is turned off:
A. Incoming callers ring the Operator in Day mode or all
phones in After Hours mode.
B. Then calls go to the Operator mailbox if the call is not
answered.
•
Auto Attendant plays after an extension is tried:
A. Incoming callers ring the Operator in Day mode, or all
phones in After Hours mode.
B. If the call isn’t answered, the Day or After Hours
Automated Attendant greeting is played.
C. If the call is still not answered, the call goes to the
Operator mailbox.
To change your call profile:
1. Pick up any Bizfon telephone extension and access Settings.
BizTouch 3: Press SETUP, select
SETTINGS, press ENTER.
BizTouch 2 or BizTouch 1: Press
SETTINGS.

Automated Attendant Greetings
The Bizfon automated attendant provides an immediate, automated greeting for callers to your business. By configuring your
system greeting options in different ways, you can be responsive to callers by providing specific information through your
system greetings.
You can change the greeting that people hear when they call
your company. Your Bizfon comes with this default auto attendant greeting:
“Thank you for calling. If you know your party’s
extension, you may dial it now. For directory
information, press 1. To reach the operator, press 0,
or wait and you will be transferred.”
You can use this generic greeting, record your own, or you can
purchase a professionally recorded greeting by calling Bizfon
Customer Care at 299.
Tips for composing a greeting:
Bizfon Administrator’s Guide
21
Section 3 Setting up Your System

•
Include all of a caller’s options. (See sample greeting
below.)

•
Read the greeting aloud before you record it to be sure you
like the way it sounds.
Sample greeting:

If you know your party’s extension, you may dial it
now. For directory information, press 1. For
directions, press 4. For hours, press 5. To reach the
receptionist, press 0, or wait and you will be

ring, when a caller selects an extension. For example, you may
wish extensions 201 through 208 to all ring at once as a group,
when a caller presses for the Operator.
Setting up a Group Ring when callers press 0

Additional information is provided in the BizTouch 2 and
BizTouch 3 Feature Phone Reference Cards (included with each
BizTouch 2 and BizTouch 3 Feature Phone) and Reference Card
for Non-Bizfon Telephones. Give each person with a Bizfon universal extension one of these cards according to the type of telephone that person is using. Wallet Cards with instructions for
remote access are also included in your Bizfon 680 documentation package.
About Universal Extensions
Your Bizfon 680 provides you with Universal Extensions. A
Universal Extension is a three-digit number, starting at 201, that
enables your clients and customers to reach you anywhere.
A universal extension can be:
•
A Physical Extension connected to the Bizfon 680. These
are extensions 201 through 208 on a one unit installation. If
you have more than one Bizfon 680, refer to the following
table for a list of extension numbers.
Bizfon 680 Unit

Unit 4
225 through 232
Bizfon Administrator’s Guide
39
Section 4 Setting Up and Using Extensions
•
A Virtual Extension, associated with any telephone located
anywhere. These are extensions 250 through 264.
With a universal extension, there is no single telephone permanently associated with the extension number. For example, you
can connect a salesperson working from a remote office to your
company through a universal extension. You would assign a virtual extension number to this person, and configure the extension to forward calls to the telephone number at the remote
office. Therefore, when a caller dials 251, for example, the
Bizfon 680 forwards the call to the salesperson’s telephone
number.
With a universal extension, you can:
•
Transfer calls to other extensions or outside numbers
•
Receive calls remotely; forwarded from the Bizfon
•
Set up and participate in Meeting Room calls
•
Place long-distance calls through the Bizfon 680 from
inside or outside the office
•
Receive and manage voice messages through your voice
mailbox
Setting Up Physical Extensions In the Office
The yellow jacks labeled Telephones on the Bizfon 680 are
assigned to physical extension numbers starting at 201.
When you first set up an extension, you indicate whether it is
going to be a private telephone, a public telephone (such as a
telephone in a conference room), or a fax machine.
If it is a private telephone, you record your name in order to
start receiving voice mail. You can also record a greeting and
choose a password.

Section 4 Setting Up and Using Extensions
NOTE: If you do not set up a password, you cannot access the

“Welcome to extension 201 <the number of the
extension you’ve picked up>. To set up this
extension now, press 1; otherwise, press *.”
•
If you press to set up the extension, you are prompted
through a series of options to configure the extension. Simply follow the prompts to configure an extension.
•
You can press to defer setting up your extension.You then
hear a dial tone and can place calls.
Setting up Virtual Extensions (250-264)
A virtual extension is not physically connected to one of the
extension jacks in the Bizfon 680. When you set up a virtual
extension, 250 for example, you tell the Bizfon where it is that
you want extension 250 to ring. It could ring at:
•
Your cell phone
•
Your home phone
•
A remote sales office phone
•
One of the physical extensions
An example of the last item would be where you share or rotate
office resources, and for the next two weeks, you are in the
office where physical extension 204 is. Your “permanent”
extension may be 250, but for those two weeks, virtual extension 250 will ring at physical extension 204.
Virtual extensions require the presence of an optional Voice
Vault card. To order one, dial 299.

“Bizfon call for <name at your extension>.”
You then have the option to:
1. Accept the call by pressing , or
2. Refuse the call by pressing . This will handle the call in
the same way as when you are in the office and not available.
If you do not answer, the Bizfon recognizes this and directs the
call to your Bizfon extension mailbox.
During the call, you can put the caller on hold, or transfer the
call to another extension. At the end of the call, you can use
remote disconnect to remain connected to the Bizfon to make
another call or listen to voice mail.

TIP!
Deactivating the screening feature allows you to have
your remote telephone handle the entire call process.
For example, with the screening feature active, a call
bounces back to your Bizfon’s voice mail. If the
screening feature is not active, the call does not bounce
back to the Bizfon. If your remote telephone has voice
mail, such as a cellular phone company’s voice mail
system, the remote call will go to your cell phone’s
voice mail.
A disadvantage of this scenario is if your remote phone
does not have voice mail or an answering machine. The
telephone will continue to ring until the caller hangs up.
Also, you will not be able to forward the call back to the
Bizfon.
Remote Access when Automated Attendant is

Configuring a Predial String
In order to support Centrex capabilities, you can set up the
Bizfon to predial a specified string of keystrokes when you get
an outside line.
The Bizfon allows you to set up the same predial string for all
outgoing lines, or to set up individual strings for each outgoing
line.
To set up predial strings:

Section 5
Using your Bizfon with Other
Office Equipment
This section gives information on how to extend your Bizfon
communications system to work with other equipment you may
have in your office.
Fax Machines
You can connect one or more fax machines to the Bizfon 680
extension ports. In order for the Bizfon to correctly route
incoming fax calls, you must configure the extensions you
select to use a fax machine through Initial Setup of the extension(s).
Extensions configured for fax machines do not have a voice
mail box, name recording or personal greeting associated with
them.
When the Bizfon detects an incoming fax, it searches for an
available fax extension, and forwards the call there.
Fax Extension Setup
To set up a new extension which will be connected to a fax
machine:
1. Make sure that the extension has been reset.
This will be the case if the extension has never been used
before. If it has been used as a normal telephone extension,
it must first be reset. Refer to “Resetting an Extension” on
page 48 for instructions on how to do this.
2. Connect the fax machine to the extension, and pick up the
telephone handset of the fax machine.
Bizfon Administrator’s Guide
53
Section 5 Using your Bizfon with Other Office Equipment
If the fax machine has no handset, use a telephone for the
configuration, then connect the fax machine when finished.
3. Follow the prompts through “Initial Settings.”
4. Press when you hear “If this extension will use a fax
machine, press 2.”
If all configured fax machines are busy and a new incoming fax
is detected, the Bizfon plays a busy tone for ten seconds then
hangs up. If more than one fax machine is set up, each is tried in
sequential order.
Fax Extension Tips
Here are some tips to help you set up fax extensions for optimum performance:
•
If callers are using the older, attended fax machines, then
you might want to add the following to your company greeting:
“...if you would like to send a fax and are using an
attended fax machine, please press the ‘Start’ button
now.”
The fax will then be correctly routed.
•
If you must dial 9 to get an outside line, be sure to include a
pause after the 9 in order to give the Bizfon a chance to
return a dial tone before the fax machine dials the number. If
you want your fax machine to be able to get an outside line
without you having to dial 9, contact a Bizfon Customer
Care Agent.
•
If you want to use your fax telephone line for incoming calls
as well, Bizfon recommends that you include this number in
your hunt group with your telephone company. This will
ensure that calls and faxes are managed correctly.
If, however, you are not able to do so, then the fax telephone
line should be connected to the lowest-numbered CO line in
the Bizfon. Since the Bizfon looks for free lines from high-
54
Bizfon, Inc.
Section 5 Using your Bizfon with Other Office Equipment
est-to-lowest, this will ensure the lowest possible chance
that an incoming fax will encounter a busy signal.
Audio Devices for Music-on-Hold
In order to play music to callers who are on hold, you can connect an audio device, such as a CD player, tape deck or radio, to
the Music-on-Hold (MOH) jack on the Bizfon 680 (see “Audio
Devices for Public Address” on page55).
Your audio source most likely produces stereo output, and your
Bizfon requires mono input. You need to purchase a stereo-tomono converter that has a single RCA plug (Radio Shack part
number: 42-2444).
Connect the cable to your audio source, and plug it into the
Music-on-Hold (MOH) connector on the Bizfon 680. Set the
levels on your audio source. If it is distorted, turn down the volume on your audio source.
NOTE: You might need ASCAP authorization to play music
to callers on hold. For more information, contact
ASCAP at (212) 621-6000 or go to their Web site at
www.ascap.com.
Audio Devices for Public Address
In order to use the public address feature of the Bizfon 680, you
must connect an external audio system to the PA output on the
side of the Bizfon.
If your audio system accepts stereo input, you need to purchase
a stereo-to-mono converter that has a single RCA plug (Radio
Shack part number: 42-2444) because your Bizfon comes with
mono output.
Bizfon Administrator’s Guide
55
Section 5 Using your Bizfon with Other Office Equipment
Connect the cable to your audio system and plug it into the PA
connector on the Bizfon 680. Set the levels on your audio system. If it is distorted, turn down the volume of your audio
source.
Modems
Bizfon currently does not recommend connecting modems to
the 680. If you have a modem line, connecting the modem
through a separate CO line, independent of the 680, for maximum data throughput.
If you have any questions on how best to set up a modem, call
299.

Recording a System Greeting
The Automated Attendant System Greetings for both Day mode
and After Hours mode come pre-set from the factory.
If you wish to create your own bilingual System Greeting, or
customize the greeting in any other way, see “Automated Attendant Greetings” on page19 for instructions to do so.
You may even wish to have a greeting as short as this:
“Thank you for calling. To continue in English,
press . Pour continuer en francais, faites le .”

Appendix B Multi-Language System Setup
In this case, you would make use of the Informational Message
feature to create individual-language greetings.
Informational Messages
Informational messages can also be created so that each message is bilingual, or they can be configured so that each is in a
specific language.
For example, your System Greeting may contain the following
text for giving directions to the office in two languages:
“For directions to the office, press
bureaux, faites le .”
