About System-wide Call Appearance (SWCA) keys
The System-wide Call Appearance (SWCA) feature allows you to park
incoming and outgoing calls on your Business Communications Manager
system and, at the same time, provide call appearance of the call to a group
of telephones. Using this feature frees the line used by the call, and allows
another user to pick up the call at any telephone that has been assigned the
same SWCA keys.
Note: Your telephone must have a free Intercom key to pick up SWCA calls.
It helps if your telephone keys are labelled so they provide some
identification about which code was used to program the key (see diagram
below)

If possible, assign the same set of buttons to
the same SWCA user codes for all
telephones in the call group.
You can name the keys anything, but it helps
to have some reference to the SWCA code
that is saved on the key.
If you need to find out which code has been
assigned to a button, use Button Inquiry
(FEATURE *0).

Adding SWCA keys to your telephone
SWCA keys can be assigned by your system administrator to a group of
telephones.
Also, each user can assign these keys on their own telephones:
1 Enter FEATURE *3 2 Select a memory button with
an indicator
3 Enter a SWCA code
(FEATURE *521 to
FEATURE *536)
Managing calls using SWCA keys
Receiving a call and assigning it to a SWCA key
Your system administrator will tell you how your system works:
The system may be programmed in one of the following ways:
1 An incoming call
2 You press a free SWCA
3 When you press HOLD,
automatically assigns to a
free SWCA key when the
call is answered.
To park the call, press the
SWCA key a second time.
key to park the call to that
key.
the call parks on a free
SWCA key.
Answering a second call: The original call is automatically parked on a free SWCA key.
For this instance to occur, your system must be set for Full Autohold (FEATURE 73),
You can also do one of the following to park the call:
1 While the call is active, enter the SWCA code that corresponds to the key where you
want to park the call. Refer to Adding SWCA keys to your telephone on page 3.
2 While the call is active, enter FEATURE *520 to search for the next available SWCA
code (assigned to your telephone).
• If the system finds an available code, the call is associated with the code.
Press HOLD or the assigned SWCA key to park the call.
• If no code is available, the call remains active on your line only. Put the call on Hold
until a SWCA key becomes available.
• If the call was already associated with a SWCA code (for the life of the call), the call
is reparked on that code.

No programmed SWCA keys
It is not necessary to have SWCA keys programmed on your telephone to
unpark a SWCA call. You can also pick up a call parked on a SWCA key by
entering the SWCA code (FEATURE *521 to FEATURE *536) that was
used to park the call. However, this requires the person who parked the call
to use other features to indicate where the call is parked, such as page
FEATURE 60, voice call FEATURE 66, or messaging FEATURE 1).

In this example, the call comes in on
line 1 and automatically transfers to
SWCA1 (the first free SWCA key).
The solid indicator beside SWCA1 and
beside the line key indicates that the call
is active on this telephone and it has not
yet been parked.
On all other telephones in the group, the
indicator would be solid only beside
SWCA1. The line keys for the other
telephones would be free to receive
additional calls.
If you press SWCA1 again to park the
call, the line indicator disappears and the
indicator beside SWCA1 starts blinking
Using Hold with SWCA keys
If a call does not automatically park on a SWCA key when you press Hold,
it means the call is parked only on your telephone on the line it came in on.
To make the call available to the group, you need to unhold the call (press
HOLD then press a free SWCA key. The call is parked on that SWCA key
and the line the call came in on becomes free.
Temporarily-parked calls
Your system can be configured so that calls parked on SWCA keys release
the SWCA key once someone picks up the call. In this case, if the person
who answered the call wants to repark the call, they must use one of the
manual methods described above to repark the call on a free SWCA key.
The system can be configured to retain the call on the same SWCA key for
the life of the call, which is the period until someone hangs up, regardless of
how many times the call is answered and reparked.

No available SWCA keys
If all your SWCA keys have assigned calls, and you receive another call, you can:
1 put the call on Hold until a SWCA key
2 dial in a SWCA code that is not assigned
becomes free. Do this by simply picking up
the call. The first call will automatically go
on hold at your telephone.
to a button on your telephone.
If you assign a call to a code that does not
have an appearance on your telephone, use
Page, Voice call, or Message to notify the
group or another person that there is a call
waiting, and on which code it was parked
Retrieving a call from a SWCA key
If the indicator beside a SWCA key is blinking, you can retrieve
the call by picking up the handset and pressing the SWCA key
associated with the indicator, or by dialing in the SWCA code
that associates with that key.

In this example, the call parked on
SWCA1 was retrieved by this user, who
pressed the SWCA1 key.
The flashing indicator beside SWCA1
becomes solid. As well, a solid indicator
appears beside one of the intercom
buttons.
On all other telephones in the group, the
indicator displays solid beside SWCA1,
indicating that the call has been retrieved
and is active.

If you are not sure which call to pick up, you can use one of the following codes to find the
longest-parked call or the most recently-parked call:
1 FEATURE *537 retrieves the oldest
2 FEATURE *538 retrieves the most
SWCA call The indicator on all telephones
in the group becomes solid, indicating an
active call.
recent SWCA call The indicator on all
telephones in the group becomes solid,
indicating an active call.
Note: These codes only work for telephones that have SWCA keys defined, and the
system only searches across the range of codes that are assigned for that telephone.

Other features that affect how you use SWCA
Timed out SWCA calls
If a call remains parked and unanswered on a SWCA key for a pre-set period
of time (the Call Park timeout timer), the call will unpark from the SWCA
key and ring again at the telephone from which it was last parked.
Outbound calls
You can also park out-dialed calls on a SWCA key. If your system is set up
to automatically assign calls to a SWCA key, the call will assign to a key as
soon as it is answered. Otherwise, during your call, you can press a free
SWCA key or Hold to park the call on a SWCA key. This makes the call
available to other users in the group and it frees up your intercom or line.
Auto Hold
FEATURE 73
Your telephone must be set to have Full Auto-hold so that a call
automatically gets placed on Hold if you answer a second call. If your
telephone does not have Auto Hold on, use FEATURE 73 to change the
setting.
Transferring calls
FEATURE 70
If you transfer the call to a telephone that does not have the same SWCA
keys assigned, the call will disappear from the SWCA key on your telephone
when the call transfers. If the call needs to be reassigned to your group, the
person who answered the call enters a SWCA control code that is assigned
to your group, to return the call to a SWCA designation at your telephone.
Conference calls
FEATURE 3
A conference call cannot be parked on a SWCA key.
You cannot conference a call that is parked on a SWCA key.
To conference a call parked on a SWCA key:
1 Press the SWCA key to
unpark the call.
2 Press HOLD
3 Press FEATURE 3 to
create the conference.
If a conference call is created from two SWCA-associated calls, and then a
transfer occurs by the conference master releasing the call, call will move to
being associated to only the currently associated SWCA keys (if any) on the
slaves.
If a conference call is created from two SWCA-associated external calls, and
then a transfer occurs by the conference master releasing the call, the
remaining call between the lines/trunks will not be associated with any
SWCA key.
