The Orchid PBX 308 extensions need to Dial 9 for access to an outside Exchange Line, however,
Extensions can be converted to Direct Dial by the System Administrator – Direct Dial extensions
do not have to dial 9 for a line. The Direct Dial feature is ideal if you make a lot of outgoing calls
and few internal calls. Direct Dial extensions need to dial * in front of the extension number when
making internal calls and when using some of the other features of the PBX 308.
Allows you to call another extension
Off Hook
Dial Extension Number 201 - 208
For Direct Dial Extensions, Dial * in front of the Extension number.
Off Hook
Dial 9 and wait for External Dial Tone, dial the telephone number.
Ideally, program 9 and a pause into a one touch memory.
NB: The pause is necessary in case you need to Redial a number. Direct Dial extensions just
need to press Redial.
Making outgoing calls from Direct Dial extensions
Off Hook
Dial the Telephone Number
Last Number Redial in “Dial 9 For a Line” mode
For last number Redial to work properly in “Dial 9 for a Line” mode you need to enter a Pause
after the 9 when dialling the number. Most modern telephones have a pause button on the keypad. Some DECT cordless phones enable you to program the phone so that “9 Pause” is inserted
in front of every number dialled.
If your telephones do not have a Pause button, we recommend you contact the System
Administrator to get your extension converted to “Direct Dial” Mode.
BT or Cable Select (Star) Services
Select Services (Also known as Star Services) such as Call Divert, 3 way Calling etc, can only be
set up on extensions that are in “Dial 9 for a Line” mode. They cannot be set up on extensions
that have been programmed for “Direct Dial” mode.
