Recording a User Name With Assistant
The name you have been assigned by the System Administrator is the name callers
hear when they ask the Automated Receptionist to speak to you. The recorded name
can be changed by specifying a different name for the computer-generated speech, or
recording a sound file of your own.
The words that the Automated Receptionist uses to confirm a caller's request are not
always the same as the user name or directory entry. For example, a caller may
request to speak to "Ms. Margheim." However, you may want the Automated
Receptionist to say "Diane Margheim" in confirmation, and the user name may be
"Dr. Margheim".

Call Park
Parking a call is like holding a call, except that it can be picked up on any phone in
your office. Response Point supports nine parking spaces for calls.
Note: If you place a call internally to another employee and that employee parks the
call, and then you put the call on hold, the connection will be terminated when the
employee you called retrieves the call.
To park and retrieve a call using voice dialing, do the following.
1. Press the Response Point button
to park the call. The Automated
Receptionist tells you the space number in which the call is parked.
2. From a phone, press the Response Point button
and say "Retrieve," and
then say the call number. For example, say "Retrieve call 1."
Note: If you're retrieving a call from the same phone where you parked it and only
one call is parked, you can simply say "Retrieve my call."
Contacts List in Assistant
Importing Contacts
You can import a maximum of 1100 contacts (including contacts already in Assistant)
from a contact store, such as Outlook, Windows Address Book (for Windows XP), or
Windows Contacts (for Windows Vista). It's a best practice to import only those
contacts that you use regularly. Importing unnecessary contacts consumes
memory—which may affect how well the Automated Receptionist interprets the
speech of callers.
Microsoft Response Point prevents you from importing contacts if the storage space
on the base unit has reached full capacity. In this case, contact System Administrator
for assistance.

Feature Key Programming Guidelines
The following are guidelines to use when programming the feature keys on the
handset:
• All handsets paired with the same Base Station have the same programmed
functions since the web interface applies the functions to all paired handsets.
AastraLink RP Phone User Guide
83
Using Your 6757i CT RP Cordless Handset
You can program up to 15 feature keys on the 6757i CT RP handset with specific
functions using the Aastra Web UI. The following table identifies the functions
available for all 15 handset keys and the default functions for each key.
Using Your 6757i CT RP Cordless Handset
• A newly registered handset or handset that was out-of-range during the
programming needs to perform an "off-hook and on-hook" sequence in order for
the newly programmed function to be broadcast. Simply press the v key from
the idle state to go off-hook. Then, press the y key to go back on-hook.
• Duplicate functions can exist in the feature key as there is no filtering or duplicate
checking done on the handset or the base.
• If no line keys are programmed for the feature key, the handset is restricted to
intercom calls only.

Callers List on the Cordless Handset
The Callers List stores the last 50 calls received. Items are stored in chronological
order with new items being first in the list. Each call received is stored, no collapsing
of records, and can be deleted or saved to a directory. Oldest call records are
automatically removed from the list when the list is full and new items are received.
The side figure shows the header screen. On this screen, there is a title, the number of
total items, the number of new items, instructions for viewing the items and two soft
keys — Exit and Delete. The Exit key quits the list and the Delete key deletes the
entire Callers List.

Pre-dialing a Number
Press the v key to obtain dial tone and use the Keypad to dial the number. You can
also make a call by pre-dialling a number. Pre-dialling lets you view a number before
you dial. If the number is correct, press the v key to dial the number. If the number
is incorrect, use the  key or press down on the volume key to erase digits from right
to left. Calls can also be made directly from the Directory.
Using a Headset
The 6757i CT RP cordless handset accepts headsets through the 2.5 mm audio jack
on the bottom of the phone. Contact your telephone equipment retailer or distributor
to purchase a compatible headset. Customers should read and observe all safety
recommendations contained in headset operating guides when using any headset.
Receiving Calls
When a call is ringing at your extension, you see the Inbound Call screen. Press the
v key to answer an incoming call, or lift the handset out of the charging cradle.
Call Privacy
In the 6757i CT RP multi-handset system, it is possible to connect several cordless
handsets together with each other or with the base as extensions to a call. This is just
like an analog system with extension phones going off hook to join a call in progress.
However, because this system is actually intended for use in an enterprise
environment, some method of call privacy is required.
All calls, base or handset, begin in the "private" mode. In this mode, no extensions
are allowed to join that handset or base call. There is a user interface provided to
toggle between the "private" and "public" modes.
"Public" Feature Key
A feature key allows the user in a multiple handset environment to press to toggle
between the "private" and "public" modes for a call. Pressing the Public feature key in
the feature list anytime during a call puts the call into the public call mode. When the
call is in public call mode, the triangle indicator lights in front of the Public label in
the feature list. This also causes that feature key to appear on an available soft key but
with a different label – Private. The user can then press the Private soft key to toggle
the call back to private or he can navigate into the feature list and press the Public
feature key.
Either way, the triangle indicator clears and the call is back in private mode. The
figures of this section demonstrate the UI.

Using Your 6757i CT RP Cordless Handset
Note: Any local caller on the call can convert the call. For instance, if one cordless
caller is on an external call, he can press the "Public" feature key to make the call
public. At that point up to three other handsets can join in on the call. If any of those
joining handsets presses the "Private" soft key, then the call is made private for all
connected handsets, and no other users can join the call unless the call is made public
again.

Defining an Emergency Dial Plan
Public telephone networks in countries around the world have a single emergency
telephone number (emergency services number) that allows a caller to contact local
emergency services for assistance when required. The emergency telephone number
may differ from country to country. It is typically a three-digit number so that it can
be easily remembered and dialed quickly. Some countries have a different emergency
number for each of the different emergency services.
You can specify the digits to dial on the IP phone to contact emergency services. Once
you specify the emergency number(s) on the phone, you can dial those numbers
directly on the dial pad and the phone automatically dials those emergency services.
Note: Contact your local phone service provider for available emergency numbers in
your area.
The following table describes the default emergency numbers on the IP phones.

the Aastra Web UI.
2. Click Phone Lock. The Phone Lock window opens.
3. In the Emergency Dial Plan field, enter the 3-digit number used in your local area

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
What if my phone is not listed on the LAN?
If your System Administrator doesn’t see the phone that you have connected to the
LAN and to a power source, there may be one or more of the following issues:
• The device is not securely plugged into a power source (or the electrical outlet is
faulty).
• The device is not securely attached to the LAN port.
• The base unit has not detected the presence of the device yet.
Contact your System Administrator for assistance.
Why is my handset not working?
Check to ensure that the handset cord is fully connected to both the phone and
handset. See the Aastra Phone Model Installation Guide for detailed information.
Why is my speakerphone not working?
If the speaker light goes out, the phone is set up to be used only with a handset. If the
light stays on steady and you hear dial tone, you can alternate between the
speakerphone and the handset by pressing Spea
eaker
er .
Why is my display blank?
Ensure that power is being provided to your phone. If your Network does not provide
Inline power over Ethernet, you can obtain an additional accessory, the a PoE inline
power injector, to provide power over Ethernet locally to your phone. See the
Aastra Phone Model Installation Guide for detailed information.
Why can I only see 1 option when the installer or user guide says there are
more?
The telephone screen only shows 1option at a time. To see more, press the down
arrow button
.
Why does the telephone wobble?
Make sure the cords are routed properly through the back of the phone. Check that the
leg stands have been properly snapped into place. Since the legs can be oriented in
two different ways and in two different positions to offer four different phone viewing
angles, check that both legs are oriented in the same direction and in the same
position on either side of the phone.
Why isn’t Assistant Working?
If you choose to use a third-party firewall instead of the default Windows Firewall,
Microsoft Response Point Assistant will not be able communicate with the base unit.
A firewall blocks requests or communication attempts from any unspecified
programs. To avoid this problem, create a firewall exception in your firewall program
for Assistant. A firewall exception allows selected programs to connect with your
computer.
100
AastraLink RP Phone User Guide
Why are some of the options in Assistant unavailable?
Unavailable options are set using Administrator. To make changes to these options,
contact the phone System Administrator.
Why can’t I use the lines I set through the Web UI?
If you are using softkeys (model 6757i CT RP) or programmable keys (model 6753i
RP) as line keys, the line keys must be assigned by the system administrator, and then
configured using the Web UI, and the phone must be restarted. The line keys only
take effect after all of these steps are complete. See Configuring Multiple Lines
(6753i RP & 6757i CT RP) on page 61.
Check that the line number assigned by the system administrator is the same as the
line number configured on the Web UI, and that the phone has been restarted.
Why did I lose my call when I put it on hold?
You can put your calls on hold, if your phone supports that feature, or park it, using
the Response Point button
. Calls put on hold for an extended time are
automatically terminated. If you think you will be away from the phone for a long
time, park the call instead. (Response Point supports nine parking spaces for calls.)
Why aren't my voice messages showing up in my e-mail inbox as voicemail
attachments?
If you are not receiving any e-mail messages or the e-mail messages do not have a
voicemail attachment, the problem may be caused by one of the following:
• Your voicemail settings are not configured properly or your e-mail address was
entered incorrectly. Verify that the Receive messages as attachments to e-mail
checkbox is selected and your e-mail address is correct on the Voicemail tab.
• Your e-mail server or e-mail reader application’s spam or virus checker filtered
the message. Look for the message in the Junk E-Mail or Deleted Items folder.
Add the sending e-mail address to the list of approved senders so that messages
from the base unit do not get filtered as junk e-mail in the future.
• If you received the e-mail message but there is no WAV file attachment, your email server or e-mail program may have removed the attachment as part of virus
filtering. (You can probably adjust the filters so that it will allow WAV file
attachments, or add the sending e-mail address to the list of approved senders to
prevent the e-mail application from removing attachments.)
Why don't I see notifications for all my incoming calls?
Because Assistant support phones that have multiple extension numbers, it is possible
to see more than one notification window at a time if multiple calls come in for these
extension numbers simultaneously. Assistant displays a maximum of four notification
windows. No notification window will appear if a fifth call comes in.

Troubleshooting
• There may be a problem with the e-mail server configuration in the phone system.
If you have verified that your configuration is correct and the messages are not
being filtered as spam, report the problem to your phone System Administrator.
Why doesn't the Response Point confirmation prompt fill in the name of the
person I asked to voice dial?
If you use voice dialing to say (for example), "Call Denise Smith at work," the
confirmation prompt should say, "Dialing Denise Smith at work." However, if the
text-to-speech feature in Windows XP is not working, you may hear "Dialing
(silence) at work" instead. Refer to the Windows documentation for more information
about the speech recognition and text-to-speech feature.
Where did my contacts go?
If storage space on the base unit is nearing capacity, Response Point deletes files,
including contact files. See your phone System Administrator for assistance.
I set up a contact to bypass the receptionist but it's not working. What's
wrong?
The Bypass Receptionist feature relies on caller ID from incoming calls in order to
function correctly. The following conditions may cause the Bypass Receptionist
feature to not work:
• Your business does not receive caller ID information from the phone company.
• The person calling you has his or her caller ID blocked.
• The phone number entered for the contact does not match the phone number
received from the phone company when the contact calls you. For example, the
phone number for the contact may not have the area code.
• The phone number entered for the contact may conflict with someone else’s bypass
entry for the same number.
• The phone System Administrator may have disabled the Bypass Receptionist
feature for the phone system.
Why can't I record my voice prompts using the text-to-speech (TTS) program that I've chosen in Windows?
Response Point automatically uses Microsoft Anna to record your sound files. If this
text-to-speech program is not available, Response Point chooses another Microsoft
TTS program that comes with your operating system regardless of which TTS
program you've manually specified in Windows.
What should I do if I'm having trouble voice dialing a contact?
If you've repeatedly tried to voice dial a particular personal contact, and each time the
Automated Receptionist says "invalid location," use Assistant to remove the contact
from the phone system, re-add the contact, and then try placing your call again.
Why don't the changes that I just made to my contact using Assistant
appear in the incoming call notification window?
This condition may occur if the information exchanged between Assistant and your
contact store (that is, Outlook, Windows Address Book, or Windows Contacts) are
temporarily out of sync. To resolve this issue, simply exit Assistant and restart the
program.
