Call Park
Call Park allows you to park (temporarily store) a call you receive on your phone, which you can then retrieve
from another phone (for example, a phone at a co-worker’s desk or in a conference room).
There are two ways you can park a call:
1 Park—Allows you to park an active call that you answered on your phone, and retrieve it using another
phone in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express system.
2 Directed Call Park—Allows you to park and retrieve an active call in two different ways:
a Assisted Directed Call Park—Allows you to park an active call by pressing a line button, which your
system administrator sets up as a speed dial line.
With this type of directed call, you can monitor the status of the line (in-use, idle, or in Do Not Disturb
state) using Line Status indicators.
b Manual Directed Call Park—Allows you to park an active call by transferring it to a Directed Call
number, which your system administrator sets up.
You retrieve the call at another phone by dialing a park retrieval prefix number (provided by your
system administrator), then dialing the Directed Call number you used to park the call.
Your system administrator sets up either the Directed Call Park or Park feature on your phone, but not both.
Park and Retrieve a Call Using Call Park
Call park allows you to place a call on hold at a designated parking slot from which the call can be retrieved
by anyone on the system.
Note
Contact your system administrator for your call park slot number.

group or in an associated call pickup group.
