Introduction

This guide describes how to use all of the features that are provided by your T6000 telephone system on your Cisco 7912G telephone.

Accessing Phone Features

Some features require you to dial an activating digit followed by a numeric code.

The default value for this activating digit is 5 and it is used throughout this guide.

However, your system administrator may choose to use another digit for this function. In that case, substitute your activating digit for the default. All feature operation will be exactly the same.

Dial Tone and Ringer Patterns

The FrameMaker telephone system generates different ringer and dial tones, depending on call conditions.

There are two types of dial tone:

Internal Dial Tone – A continuous, higher-pitched tone

External (Outside) Dial Tone – A continuous, lower-pitched tone

There are several types of ringers – all are answered the same way:

One Ring – Internal (Extension-to-Extension) Calls and when the system has called your extension to remind you or to notify you about something.

Two Rings – External Calls

Distinctive Rings – A different ring tone is provided for up to two additional Direct Inward Dial (DID) numbers assigned to your telephone by the system administrator. These numbers do not appear as lines on your telephone, but ring your prime line with the appropriate ring when they are dialed.

Priority Ring – The call screening feature allows users to designate specific callers as important enough to ring through to their telephone even if Do Not Disturb is activated. A different ring tone is provided for calls assigned the Priority Call option. See “Priority Call” on page 46.

Direct Extension Assignment

This feature lets you program another telephone in the same corporate system to be your telephone. For example, you are visiting a branch office for an extended business trip and you want to program a “guest” telephone to ring as your telephone while you are there. This feature requires your old phone and the “new/ guest” phone to be the same type of phone.

Programming a Guest Phone

To program a guest phone to act as your phone, follow these steps:

1.

From the guest /new phone, dial 588 (or the code provided by your system administrator). You are prompted to enter the telephone number which you want that phone to be (Presumably, your “original/old” phone number).

2.

Enter your complete 10-digit telephone number, followed by the # key. You are prompted to enter a password. The password default is the last four digits of the phone number entered in this step.

3.

Enter your password, followed by the # key. The phone is now programmed to be your phone and your old phone is removed from service.

Do Not Disturb

NOTE: When you reassign your telephone number to the new phone, the button template from your “old” phone is assigned to the “new” phone.

Re-establishing the Guest Phone

To reset the guest phone to its original number, follow the steps to program a phone, using the original phone number and password of the guest phone.

Re-establishing Your Old Phone

Once you have programmed another phone with your old phone’s extension, you must reconfigure your old phone before using it. Your old phone displays the message “Pickup handset to configure”. Pickup the handset and perform the following steps:

1.

Enter your old 10-digit phone number, followed by the # key. You are prompted to enter a password.

2.

Enter the password, followed by the # key. (Your password is typically the last four digits of your phone number.) The phone is now programmed back to its original extension.

Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb instantly routes all your incoming calls to another destination (your voice mailbox, the main operator, your secretary, a co-worker, etc.), but still lets you make calls and use other telephone features. With Do Not Disturb enabled, the phone will not ring when a call comes in.

Tips for using Do Not Disturb

You can record a special voice mail greeting for callers to hear if your calls go to voice mail when you activate the Do Not Disturb feature. For more information, see the appropriate section titled “Voice Mail Features” for your system.

The Do Not Disturb destination where incoming calls are sent can be changed by your system administrator.

Enabling/Disabling Do Not Disturb

The same star code is used to enable and disable Do Not Disturb since you are switching between the on and off mode for this feature.

3.

Hang up the handset or press EndCall.

End Call

This feature lets you disconnect from a call without having to hang up the handset.

Hanging up a call this way means you will not get the reminder tone in the handset that the phone is off-hook. It also allows incoming calls to ring through to the telephone.

This feature is mainly used when a headset is connected to the telephone through the handset jack. This allows you to leave the handset off the cradle while calls are made and answered using the other buttons on the phone. Calls arriving at the telephone will ring and when the line is selected, the call is connected through the headset.

Group Speed Dial

This feature provides additional speed dialing capabilities beyond those provided by the Abbreviated Dial feature. With Group Speed Dialing, you have access to a common speed dial list of up to 1,000 entries managed by your service provider.

Group Speed Dial numbers are extension numbers that have been programmed to dial another number, usually an external number. Your service provider will provide you with a list of Group Speed Dial numbers and their destinations.

Hold

This feature lets you place a call on hold. While a call is holding, the holding party occupies the associated line.

1.

During a conversation, press the HOLD button ( ). Depending on your system configuration, the party may hear music, a recorded announcement, or silence while holding.

2.

To resume the conversation, press the HOLD button.

NOTE: Starting one minute after the party is on hold, and occurring each minute after that, 3 short rings sound from the phone speaker, even if you are using the handset. This is to remind you that you have a call on hold.

For more details on handling two calls at once, see “Switching Between Held Calls” on page 29.

"pilot" number or to any member of a defined group based on the specified hunting order. If you have a phone with a display, you will see either the caller ID for the call or the hunt group name, depending on how your hunt group is configured.

Your system administrator or manager should tell you if you are a member of a hunt group, who the other members are, and what should appear on your phone’s display, if you have a display.

Intercom Calls (Receive Only)

Incoming Intercom calls are announced by a brief dial-tone followed by the intercom tones. A tone is played every 60 seconds during active intercom calls.

Meet-Me Conference

If supported by your system, Meet-Me Conferencing provides the ability to schedule conference calls where the moderator (who has control of the conference) and other members (internal or external) call into the conference and are connected at the appropriate time to carry on the conference call.

Moderators can do any of the following:

MultiCall Park

This feature lets you park more than one call from your phone or pick up a specific parked call. When parked, a call is assigned an ID number by the system. This ID number makes Multicall Park possible. Parking a call is similar to placing a call on hold, except that when a call is parked, you can pick up the parked call from anywhere in the system. Once the call is parked, the line is free again.

Music on Hold

Your telephone provides crystal clear voice conversations. However, if you listen to music on hold, you may notice that some types of music sound slightly distorted.

This is normal. The FrameMaker system has been optimized to transmit and receive speech; music contains a variety of sounds that are considerably higher and lower in pitch than the human voice, so some of these musical sounds are not included in the audio signal.

Mute

The Cisco 7912G model phone does not support a mute function with a specific

Mute button. However, you can monitor a call over the phone speaker where the called party cannot hear you. See “Monitoring a Call Hands-Free” on page 9 for more information.

On-hook Dialing

You can dial a number while the handset is on-hook by doing one of the following:

Dial the phone number on the keypad and:

Phone Configurator

The FrameMaker system allows the system administrator to configure your phone in the database before it is physically installed. You can then pick up the handset and enter your phone number and password (provided by your system administrator), and it will be assigned to your phone.

It also allows you to find out the telephone number and IP address assigned to any telephone. Using the Configurator, you can also re-assign your phone number to another telephone of a similar type (usually for a temporary period at another location) and then re-assign the number to back your regular telephone set.

Assigning Your Phone Number to Your Phone

When your phone is first installed, you may need to assign your phone number to your phone. Your administrator should provide both your phone number and a password to allow you to do this.

NOTE: Once you have assigned your phone number to your phone, you may be required to change your password. If not, it is recommended that you change it for security.

Priority Call

The Priority Call feature allows you to define numbers that will ring at your telephone with a special ring that tells you this is an important call. To use this feature, you manage a list of telephone numbers (internal or external) that cause the priority ring to sound when a call with that caller ID appears at your telephone.

Priority Call is managed through a menu of commands activated by pressing digits on the keypad. The commands are:

1 - Enable/disable feature

2 - Add members

3 - List members

4 - Delete members

The display area on your telephone will show the options for each menu level. For example, if you press 4 to delete a number, the display will show:

“1=Del Num, 2=List, 3=Del All, *=Menu”.

Access Codes

15. Select a menu item or hang up.

Privacy Guard

Privacy Guard is a call screening service that works with Caller ID to identify all incoming calls that have no Caller ID, such as calls that are Anonymous,

Unavailable, Out-of-Area, or Private. It forces callers to identify themselves by entering an access code or recording their name in order to complete the call. You will know who is calling and have four options for handling the call.

Access Codes

Privacy Guard provides the ability to create two kinds of access codes that you can give to family members, friends or business associates to allow them to identify themselves if they call and their caller ID is not available. You decide who gets which code.

For phones with a display, access codes are shown on the display as shown:

Privacy Guard (<access code>)

The Access Code is a 3-digit code that, when required, is entered followed by the

# key. There is only one Access Code.

The Selective Caller List is a list of up to ten codes. Each code must be 10-digits.

When required, a caller enters the code followed by the # key.

NOTE: When creating the codes for the Selective Caller List, you want codes that are easy for the caller to remember and use. If the code will be used for an individual, you might want to use the phone number most commonly used by that person. If it is for a group of people or a business, use a number that will be easy for them to use and you to recognize, such as a main business number.

Caller Actions

When Privacy Guard is enabled, calls that do not have any Caller ID information are automatically answered and the caller hears an announcement followed by a series of prompts.

The announcement explains you do not accept unidentified calls and that their

Caller ID information was not received. They are instructed to do one of the following:

Press 1 to enter an access code.

Press 2 to record their name so that the call can be announced, .

Privacy Guard

If they enter anything other than the menu options, they will be prompted two more times to enter a valid menu option. If they do not select a valid option in the allowed time, the call is dropped.

Entering an Access Code

If a caller presses 1, they are asked to enter an access code, which can be either the Access Code or one of the codes in the Selective Call List, followed by the # key. A prompt tells them to wait while the call is completed.

If an invalid access code is entered, the caller will be prompted two more times to enter a valid access code. If they do not enter a valid access in the allowed time, the call is dropped.

Recording a Name

If a caller presses 2, they are asked to record either their name or their company name and press the # key. After playing the beep, the system will record up to 5 seconds.

When the user presses # or the recording time ends, a prompt tells them to wait while the call is completed.

The system records whatever is spoken during the 5 seconds, which can be either the caller’s name or silence. If the caller does not record a name, no name will be spoken when you answer the call.

Answering Privacy Guard Call

Once a caller has entered an access code or recorded their name, the call will ring on your phone. If you have a display and receive caller ID information, you will see

“From Privacy Guard” on the display. If the caller entered an access code, the access code digits will be displayed also.

If the caller entered an access code, your telephone rings normally and you are connected to the caller when you answer the call.

If the caller recorded their name, your telephone rings with a priority ring. When you answer the call, a prompt is played that announces the call and offers the following options:

Press 1 to answer the call.

Press 2 to play an announcement to the caller that you are unavailable.

Press 3 to transfer the caller to voice mail.

NOTE: Option 3 will be available if you have a voice mail button on your telephone for your voice mail mailbox or for another voice mail mailbox, such as the main number (attendant phone) or another person’s mailbox (executive assistant

Press 4 to deliver a message that you do not accept sales or soliciation calls and you are not to be called again.

If you enter anything other than the available menu options, you will be prompted two more times to enter a valid menu option. If you do not select a valid option in the allowed time or if you hang up without making a choice, the system plays the announcement that you are unavailable and disconnects the call.

Remote Phone

The Remote Phone feature provides the capability to set up a remote phone to act as if it were your VoIP phone. Instead of placing and receiving calls from your VoIP phone, calls are made and answered from the Remote Phone.

For example, if you configure your cell phone to be your remote phone, all calls coming into your VoIP phone would ring at your desk and on your cell phone simultaneously.

For this feature to be available, a Remote button must be provided on your VoIP phone by your service provider. However, the VoIP phone does not have to be in service for the Remote Phone feature to be operational.

W A R N I N G

If you dial an emergency number (such as 911) from the remote phone while it is in remote mode (the phone will be playing on-hold music), an announcement tells you that number is not allowed from Remote

Phone and advises you to hang up the phone and try again. Until you hang up the phone and disconnect from the Remote Phone feature, you will receive the announcement.

There are two ways to enable the Remote Phone feature:

Dial-in Setup of Remote Phone

To set up a remote phone by dialing in, you must call using the remote phone where your VoIP phone calls will be forwarded.

1.

From the remote phone (example, your cell phone or a hotel phone), dial the

Remote Phone access DID number.

Your service provider should have provided this number to you.

2.

Enter the phone number of your VoIP phone followed by the pound sign (#).

EXAMPLE: 9723353421# or 9723352100*2001# for Non-DID numbers.

3.

Enter the password for your VoIP phone followed by #.

4.

DO NOT hang up the destination phone. Leave it off-hook.

5.

If a call comes in, press star (*) to answer the call.

6.

Disconnect from a call by pressing “###”, which will leave the Remote Phone active (you will hear hold music playing).

NOTE: Be aware that if you are using a cell phone, the phone is still in an active call.

Deactivating Dial-up Remote Phone

If you hang up the remote phone, it will disconnect the call and deactivate the

Remote Phone mode.

Web Portal Setup of Remote Phone

The remote phone feature can be activated via the Web Portal by selecting

Options > Remote. You must check the box labeled Enable Remote User, then enter the phone number of the remote phone (for example, a cell phone or hotel phone number).

From the Web Portal, you can check a box to Enable Remote Caller ID. When checked, the caller’s Caller ID will display on your remote phone display (if it has one). When unchecked, your IP phone number will be displayed. This way, when you see your own VoIP phone number on the Caller ID, you will know that it is an incoming remote call.

You can also set the number of seconds the phone will ring unanswered before the call is redirected to voice mail or other destination.

Deactivating Remote Phone via Web Portal

C A U T I O N

If you are engaged in a remote phone call, and you change the Remote

Phone number through the Web Portal, when you click “Save”, it will disconnect your current remote phone call.

In the Web Portal, when the Auto Enable When Phone OOS checkbox is checked, the system will automatically enable Remote Phone and route calls to the

Remote Phone number when the phone is out of service. The Remote Phone feature will not be auto-enabled until a call arrives after the phone has been declared out of service. If a call arrives at the phone before the Call Agent has determined the phone is out of service, the Call Agent will send the call to the No

Answer destination. As soon as the Call Agent determines the phone is out of service, the Remote Phone feature will be automatically enabled and all further calls will be sent to the Remote Phone number.

When the phone with Auto Enable When Phone OOS checked returns to service after the outage, Remote Phone is not disabled. Both the phone and Remote

Phone will ring for each incoming call. The user must disable remote mode using the Web Portal or by pressing the Remote button on the phone.

Deactivating Remote Phone via Web Portal

To completely deactivate the Remote Phone mode, you must uncheck the Enable

Remote User checkbox on the Web Portal or press the Remote button on your

VoIP phone.

If you just hang up the remote phone, it will disconnect the call, but Remote Phone mode will still be enabled. The next call coming in to your VoIP phone will ring the remote phone.

Feature Interaction: Remote Phone with Find-Me

The Remote Phone mode works in conjunction with the Find-Me function that will transfer the call to each phone you have listed in your Find-Me list. When your

VoIP phone is in Remote Phone mode, and you have Find-Me set up, first the call will try ringing the remote phone. If it is not answered, the Find-Me function takes over and will try the next numbers in your Find-Me list.

If you set up Remote Phone from the Web Portal, and you do not answer so Find-

Me takes over, then Remote Phone mode will remain enabled and the next call coming in will also ring the remote phone.

Selective Call Forward

Selective Call Forward

Selective Call Forward allows you to program your phone to send calls from a list of telephone numbers to another telephone number. All calls from phones on the list go to the same destination, which can be changed at any time.

To use this feature, you designate the forward destination and manage a list of telephone numbers (internal or external) that are forwarded to that number when a call with that caller ID appears at your telephone.

Selective Call Forward is managed through a menu of commands activated by pressing digits on the phone keypad. The commands are:

1 - Enable/disable feature

2 - Enter the forward (destination) number

3 - ID (forward destination number)

4 - Add members (to list to be forwarded)

5 - List members (of list to be forwarded)

6 - Delete members (from list to be forwarded)

The display on your telephone will show the options for each menu level. For example, if you press 6 to delete a number, the display will show:

“1=Num, 2=List, 3=Del All, *=Main Menu”.

Enabling/Disabling Selective Call Forward

You can access the voice mail system on your phone by dialing *09 or by pressing the Messages button ( )

System settings determine the number (and length) of voice mail messages that are stored in your voice mailbox. If supported by your system, callers can press “0” while they are “in” your mailbox to transfer to your main number or operator.

The voice mail system also provides both personal and group distribution lists which let you send a voice mail to a defined group of people as easily as sending a voice mail to a single user. Combining the ability to compose a voice mail message before sending it with a distribution list, you can easily create and send a voice mail message to multiple users or lists.

NOTE: The voice mail system can only save a certain number messages as configured by your service provider. If the maxium number of messages is reached and you receive a new voice mail message, it will not be stored. You must delete some old voice mail messages to receive any more.

What You Receive on Your Pager/Cell Phone

Each time you receive any voice message.

Only when you receive a message marked as urgent.

What You Receive on Your Pager/Cell Phone

Numeric - You receive the numbers you entered in the Pager Info box; when you set up the pager option with the system administrator. The number could be a code that means something to you.

Voice - when you answer the page, voice mail plays a welcome announcement followed by a request for the account password. Enter the password and listen to the normal voice mail menu options. If the voice message is marked as "Urgent", the first voice message you receive is the urgent message.

When someone leaves a voice mail message on your phone, the system immediately dials your pager or cellular phone. The system tries to reach you every five minutes, up to three times if you don’t answer. If you take the call, but you don’t enter digits at the prompt, the system acts like you never answered the call and continues trying to reach you as stated above. If you have caller id, your “office” phone number/name is displayed as the caller.

E-Mail -The message you receive, reads as follows:

Subject: Voice Mail from calling party

Body: the text entered by the system administrator (i.e. Please call me! I need to talk to you.)

NOTE: If the system administrator left the body text empty, you get as the body: calling party called you on “date” at “time”.

Managing Distribution Groups

Voice messaging distribution groups can be created as either personal or corporate groups. Up to 20 personal groups can be created by individuals for their own use while up to 70 corporate groups can be created.

Corporate (customer) distribution lists are created by an administrator or a user with access to a customer’s main number voice mail box and are available for use by all of a customer’s users. By default, corporate group number 10 in each customer partition is named “Everyone”, includes all mailboxes within a company and is available to all users. The “Everyone” group is updated whenever a mailbox assigned to the customer partition is added or deleted.

The following options are available when you access the distribution groups menu item:

You can access the voice mail system on your phone by dialing *09 or by pressing the Messages button ( )

System settings determine the number (and length) of voice mail messages that are stored in your voice mailbox. If supported by your system, callers can press “0” while they are “in” your mailbox to transfer to your main number or operator.

The voice mail system also provides both personal and group distribution lists which let you send a voice mail to a defined group of people as easily as sending a voice mail to a single user. Combining the ability to compose a voice mail message before sending it with a distribution list, you can easily create and send a voice mail message to multiple users or lists.

NOTE: The voice mail system can only save a certain number messages as configured by your service provider. If the maxium number of messages is reached and you receive a new voice mail message, it will not be stored. You must delete some old voice mail messages to receive any more.

If you take the call, but you don’t enter digits at the prompt, the system acts like you never answered the call and continues trying to reach you as stated above. If you have caller id, your “office” phone number/name is displayed as the caller.

E-Mail -The message you receive, reads as follows:

Subject: Voice Mail from calling party

Body: the text entered by the system administrator (i.e. Please call me! I need to talk to you.)

NOTE: If the system administrator left the body text empty, you get as the body: calling party called you on “date” at “time”.

Managing Distribution Groups

Voice messaging distribution groups can be created as either personal or corporate groups. Up to 20 personal groups can be created by individuals for their own use while up to 70 corporate groups can be created.

Corporate (customer) distribution lists are created by an administrator or a user with access to a customer’s main number voice mail box and are available for use by all of a customer’s users. By default, corporate group number 10 in each customer partition is named “Everyone”, includes all mailboxes within a company and is available to all users. The “Everyone” group is updated whenever a mailbox assigned to the customer partition is added or deleted.

System settings determine the number (and length) of voice mail messages that are stored in your voice mailbox. If supported by your system, callers can press “0” while they are “in” your mailbox to transfer to your main number or operator.

Combining the ability to compose a voice mail message before sending it with a distribution list, you can easily create and send a voice mail message to multiple users or lists.

NOTE: The voice mail system can only save a certain number messages as configured by your service provider. If the maxium number of messages is reached and you receive a new voice mail message, it will not be stored. You must delete some old voice mail messages to receive any more.

What You Receive on Your Pager/Cell Phone

What You Receive on Your Pager/Cell Phone

Numeric - You receive the numbers you entered in the Pager Info box; when you set up the pager option with the system administrator. The number could be a code that means something to you.

Voice - when you answer the page, voice mail plays a welcome announcement followed by a request for the account password. Enter the password and listen to the normal voice mail menu options. If the voice message is marked as "Urgent", the first voice message you receive is the urgent message.

When someone leaves a voice mail message on your phone, the system immediately dials your pager or cellular phone. The system tries to reach you every five minutes, up to three times if you don’t answer. If you take the call, but you don’t enter digits at the prompt, the system acts like you never answered the call and continues trying to reach you as stated above. If you have caller id, your “office” phone number/name is displayed as the caller.

E-Mail -The message you receive, reads as follows:

Subject: Voice Mail from calling party

Body: the text entered by the system administrator (i.e. Please call me! I need to talk to you.)

NOTE: If the system administrator left the body text empty, you get as the body: calling party called you on “date” at “time”.

Managing Distribution Groups

Voice messaging distribution groups can be created as either personal or corporate groups. Up to 20 personal groups can be created by individuals for their own use while up to 70 corporate groups can be created.

Corporate (customer) distribution lists are created by an administrator or a user with access to a customer’s main number voice mail box and are available for use by all of a customer’s users. By default, corporate group number 10 in each customer partition is named “Everyone”, includes all mailboxes within a company and is available to all users. The “Everyone” group is updated whenever a mailbox assigned to the customer partition is added or deleted.

The following options are available when you access the distribution groups menu item:

Set Up Outlook for TAPI

7

This chapter explains how you can set up and use Microsoft Outlook to use TAPI to dial phone numbers using your telephone. Information includes the following:

Using TAPI to call from Outlook

Installing the TAPI 2.1-compliant support software

Configuring Windows so that Outlook can use TAPI

Configuring Outlook to use the T6000 telephone number

NOTE: Although Outlook is used as the example, this information can also be applied to other TAPI-enabled applications.

Using TAPI to Call from Outlook

Once you have configured Outlook or another TAPI-enabled program to dial using the system, you can place calls through your telephone from the application. You must be connected to the same network that your phone is connected to for TAPIenabled dialing to work with your phone.

This example uses Outlook, but other TAPI-enabled programs will be similar. The application documentation or online help should have information on making calls using the TAPI functionality.

To place a call from Outlook, use the following steps:

1.

Start Outlook (if not already running).

2.

Click the Contacts icon to switch to the Contacts listing.

3.

Right click on the contact you wish to call to bring up the Actions pop-up menu.

TIP: Always check to be sure you have the correct number selected before starting a call. If you have multiple phone numbers entered for the person you are calling, you must use the drop-down list to select the number to call.

6.

The speaker on your telephone should be activated and you should hear ringing or a busy signal as the call is connected to the dialed number.
