About Bridged Call Appearances
Your phone may show a bridged call appearance on the display screen in addition to your
own call appearances. A bridged call appearance typically belongs to someone else, but
bridging allows you to see if that call appearance is in use, answer calls on that call
appearance, or join a call in progress on that call appearance from your telephone. You
can also make outgoing calls on a bridged call appearance when it is not in use.
Answering a call on a bridged call appearance
1. Press the call/line appearance button associated with the bridged call
appearance.
Note:
The ringing bridged call appearance may be selected automatically if there are no
other active calls. If you are on another call when a call comes in to a bridged call
appearance, you may have to select the ringing bridged call appearance button
(just like for an incoming call to a primary line).
2. Press the Answer softkey.
Note:
Answering a call on a bridged call appearance is basically the same as a call on
a primary line. If the ringing bridged call appearance is selected, you can answer
by picking up the handset, by pressing the Speaker or Headset button, or
pressing the Answer softkey.

name or extension displays to the person you are calling, contact your system
administrator.
1. Press the call/line button associated with the bridged call appearance.
2. Dial the telephone number, or call the person from the contacts list, or call the

About Shared Line Appearances
If your call processing system is an Avaya Distributed Office system and depending on
how it is configured, your phone may show shared line appearances on the display screen
in addition to your own lines. A shared line appearance is a line that is shared among
multiple users. You can answer a call, join a call in progress, and make an outgoing call
on a shared line appearance. You can make only outside calls on line appearances. The
procedures to answer, join, and make a call on a shared line appearance are similar as
those for a bridged appearance. But instead of using another person's line, you are using
a shared line.
Answering a call on a shared line appearance
1. Press the call/line appearance button associated with the shared line appearance.
Note:
The ringing shared line appearance may be selected automatically if there are no
other active calls. If you are on another call when a call comes in to a shared line
appearance, you may have to select the ringing shared line appearance button
(just like for an incoming call to a primary line).
2. Press the Answer softkey.
Note:
Answering a call on a shared line appearance is basically the same as a call on
a primary line. If the ringing shared line appearance is selected, you can answer

About Advanced Telephone Features
Avaya call management systems provide many advanced telephone features such as
Directory, Call Forwarding, and Abbreviated Dial buttons. These features are administered
on the feature buttons on your telephone. The features are identified on the associated
paper labels. The features that have been administered for your telephone are also listed
in the Features Menu that you can access from the Phone display. For more information
about the Features Menu, see About the Features Menu.
The features that are available to you depend on what your administrator has assigned to
your telephone. A few of the most commonly administered features are explained below.
For more information about all the features that are available for your extension, contact
your system administrator.

You must enter the telephone number where the calls will be forwarded each time you use
this feature. You can forward calls only to internal numbers.

You hear a dial tone prompting you to dial the forwarding number.
2. Dial the number you want to forward your calls to.
After you dial the number, you hear a confirmation tone. The forwarding icon

feature button turns on.

The forwarding icon no longer appears on the top line of your phone display, and
the green LED next to the feature button turns off.

LED next to the feature button turns on.

office telephone and your cell phone at the same time. This allows you to answer office
calls while you are away from your desk. The cell phone number is programmed by your
system administrator.
