CHAPTER 1
MAXCS Telephone Functions
Note: This guide refers to the FLASH button on the telephone device.
The flash function is the off-hook flash used, for example, to take
the other call in a simple call-waiting situation. Some telephones
may provide a LINK or similar button that provides the same
function.
Basic Functions
Making Calls
• To make an internal call to another extension, lift the handset
off-hook, wait for a dial tone and dial the extension number.
• To make an external call, lift the handset off-hook, wait for a dial tone,
dial the designated outside line access digit and dial the phone number.
The outside line access digit(s) are provided by your administrator.
Note: If the Forced Account Code feature is enabled, you must enter
an Account Code before making an external call.
Answering Calls
When you answer the phone, there may be different rings depending on
who is calling you. When Distinctive Ringing is enabled on your system,
three different ringing cadences may be used:
• Internal Call = short double rings
• External Call = long single rings between long pauses
• Operator Call = long single rings between short pauses
AltiServ User Guide

Telephone Features
MAXCS provides a broad range of call-handling and dialing features. For
you to use the system most effectively, you might want to browse through
this section and keep it handy for future reference.
Putting a Call on Hold
While connected to a call, do one of the following:
• Press the FLASH button to play music on hold (if the system is
configured to play music on hold) and do not hang up. Hanging up
will disconnect the call. To reconnect to the call, press the FLASH
button again.
• Press the HOLD button. Nothing is heard by the other party when
placed on hold this way. Hanging up here will not disconnect the call.
To reconnect to the call, press the HOLD button again.
Transferring Calls
To transfer the currently connected call:
1.
Press the FLASH button.
2.
At the dial tone, dial the third party’s extension number, or if
permitted, a trunk-line access prefix and an external phone number.
3.
When the third party answers, announce the call or simply hang up.
When hanging up, use the Release button if available, or keep the
hook-flash depressed for a couple of seconds to make sure the call is
transferred.
To abort the transfer and reconnect to the incoming call, press FLASH
again before the transfer is complete.
Centrex Transfer
If you have a Centrex line, you can use this feature to transfer an external
call to an outside number without having to tie up two trunk lines. Once the
transfer is complete, the external caller’s line connects directly to the
outside number. Since there are no longer any connections to internal users,
internal trunk lines are then dropped, freeing up system trunk line resources
for other calls.
To complete a Centrex transfer:
1.
Press FLASH, then *.
2.
Dial the second party’s number (no need to dial the prefix for trunkline access, such as 9) and either hang up or announce the call.
4 AltiServ User Guide
3.
Once you place the handset back on-hook, the trunk line also drops and
Centrex completes the transfer.
Transferring Calls into the AltiGen Voice Mail System
To send an outside call into the AltiGen Voice Mail system, press
FLASH # 4 0.
To transfer a call directly into a user’s voice mail, press FLASH ## and the
user’s extension number. When you transfer a call this way, you do not
need to set the user’s station on Do-Not-Disturb or wait for the phone to
finish ringing.
Transferring Calls to an Auto Attendant
To transfer a call to the Auto Attendant, press FLASH # 15 and the Auto
Attendant number. For example, if 001 is the initial greeting to which you
want to send the user, press FLASH # 15001.
Conference Calls
You can place conference calls including up to 5 parties, and you can speak
privately with each party before adding them to the conference call. Any
internal user is able to add parties to the conference call.
The quality of the conference call depends on the quality of service
available with the local telephone company.
To conference an outgoing call:
1.
Press FLASH.
2.
At the dial tone, dial the next party’s phone number.
3.
Wait for the third party to answer, and announce the conference call.
4.
Press # to put all three parties into the conference call.
5.
During conferencing, any internal conference participant may press
FLASH, dial the next party’s number, and press # to bring the person
into the conferencing session.
AltiServ User Guide
5
Telephone Features
Transferring Calls Directly to a User’s Voice Mailbox
The user who initiates the conference call can select another conference
member and drop that member from the conference simply by
disconnecting the call. This must be done through MaxCommunicator/
AltiAgent. The feature is unavailable to other conference members, even
when the initiator hangs up. Single Call Waiting or Multiple Call
Waiting must be set for the extension.
To conference an incoming call:
1.
User hears a call waiting tone.
1.
Press FLASH to connect to the incoming call.
2.
Press # to add the caller to the conference.
Conferencing an incoming call must be done through MaxCommunicator/
AltiAgent, if Multiple Call Waiting is set for the extension. If only Single
Call Waiting is set, both MaxCommunicator/AltiAgent and the phone
itself can be used to conference an incoming call.
Consultation
To place the caller on hold and speak with a person at another
extension:
1.
Press FLASH and dial the extension number of the person you want
to speak with.
2.
When you are finished, press FLASH again to disconnect the
consultation and return to the original caller.
Call Park
You can park calls and then pick them up at your current station or another
one. After a time-out period—set by the system administrator—parked
calls ring the extension at which they are parked.
To park calls:
1.
Do one of the following:
• To park the call at the current extension, press FLASH # 31 and
hang up.
• To park the call at another extension, press FLASH # 31 followed
by the extension number. For example, to park the call at ext. 487,
press FLASH # 31487.
6 AltiServ User Guide
2.
To pick up the parked call, press # 31 followed by the extension
number of the station where the call is parked.
Note: If the user does not answer the call when it rings after the twominute hold time, the call will be put on hold again. If this call is
still on hold after two minutes, the system will ring the user again.
System Call Park and Silent System Call Park
You can enable the Silent System Call Park feature by pressing #73 on
your telephone keypad. This feature is used to disable the system from
announcing the “location” of a call when using the System Call Park
feature. This announcement is sometimes confusing when using graphic
interface applications such as AltiConsole rather than using the telephone.
It also eliminates having to wait for the location number to be announced
before moving on to the next task.
Line Park
Line Park allows for a set of 99 lines to be used as a park pool, where
incoming trunk calls can be parked automatically (by routing/call handling
treatment in MaxAdministrator). Park lines are organized into groups, with
up to 99 groups supported.
When no park lines are available, calls routed to this Line Park group are
queued.
You can pick up parked line park calls by pressing #51 followed by the 2digit line park line, on your telephone keypad. No feature code is available
to park the call at a park line.
Call Waiting
To use call waiting, it must have been enabled for the extension by the
system administrator or by the user in MaxCommunicator/AltiAgent.
If a call comes in while you’re on the phone, the system will beep up to
three times over a 24-second period before the call is routed into voice mail.
AltiServ User Guide
7
Telephone Features
System Call Park allows the user to park a call at a public “location” by
entering FLASH #41. The system announces where the call is parked—a
location number. Calls parked by a user will ring that user’s extension after
the time-out period expires.
To answer the call:
1.
Press FLASH to put the first call on hold and simultaneously connect
to the waiting call.
2.
Press FLASH again to return to the first call.
Distinctive Ring
If the Distinctive Ring option is enabled by the system administrator, you
may have four different call waiting tone cadences that distinguish the
types of calls:
• Internal Call = short double ring
• External Call = normal, single ring
• Operator Call = long single ring between short pauses on calls to the
operator
• Workgroup Call = short single ring between short pauses on calls to
the workgroup
Multiple Call Waiting
This feature enables a “personal” queue that allows you to handle multiple
incoming calls by letting callers wait in queue until you answer the call.
You can transfer or park calls before answering the next call in queue.
Multiple Call Waiting must be enabled for your extension by the system
administrator before it can be used.
Before being placed in queue, the caller hears an Initial Greeting. Once in
the queue, the caller hears a Subsequent Greeting every 30 seconds. You
can change or customize these greetings in the AltiGen Voice Mail system
at the Personal Options menu as described in “Recording Greetings” on
page 29.
In queue, the callers can press # to exit the queue and leave a voice mail
message or, if your organization has an operator, press 0 for the operator.
You may want to remind users of these options in the greetings.
To answer calls in a Multiple Call Waiting situation:
• During a call, you will hear an alert tone (audio beep) for each new call
that is added to the queue.
• If you hang up, the phone will ring with the next caller in queue.
8 AltiServ User Guide
1.
To park or transfer a call before answering the next call, press the Link
or FLASH key and do one of the following:
• To transfer the call, enter the extension or phone number and hang
up.
• To park the call using Personal Call Park, press # 31, enter an
extension number only if you want to park the call at an extension
other than your own, and then hang up (see “Call Park” on page 6).
2.
Answer the next call in queue; it will ring after you disconnect the
previous call.
Account Codes
The supervisor can create or assign codes that will enable or force users to
assign outgoing calls to particular codes for billing, tracking or forecasting
purposes.
When this option is set, after you enter outgoing call digits, the system will
prompt you for an account code before allowing the outgoing call to
proceed.
Dialing a Remote MAXCS System
Calling a Remote Extension Directly over IP
To call a remote extension directly over IP:
1.
Dial the IP trunk access code (for example, 8).
2.
Dial the destination ID (for example, 1), if applicable.
3.
Dial the destination extension number (for example, 101).
Calling Remote Auto Attendant/IVR or Operator
If the remote system is configured to connect incoming calls to an operator
or Auto Attendant (and not to a person’s or workgroup extension), you can
connect with the operator or Auto Attendant as follows:

parked call “location” number, and then hang up.
1.

2.

a remote trunk to place an outgoing call—you can do that as follows:
1.
Dial IP trunk access code (for example, 8).
2.
Dial the remote system ID digit (for example, 3).

Voice Over IP Trunk Call Support
If your system is set up with voice over IP (VoIP), you can use the
following trunk-related MAXCS system features during IP trunk call
sessions.
Supported Features
The following features are supported while dialing through IP trunks:
• Incoming and Outgoing Trunk Calls—you must dial the IP trunk
access code to make outgoing calls via an IP trunk.
• Call Transfer To and From IP Trunk (Blind and Supervised)—
you must dial the IP trunk access code and all necessary prefixes to
transfer calls via an IP trunk.
• One Number Access—when entering “outcall” numbers via
MaxCommunicator or MaxAdministrator, you must add the IP
Trunk Access code and Location ID. For example, if you want the
MAXCS system to dial the extension 300 at a remote MAXCS
system where the location ID is 1 and the IP trunk access code is 8,
you must enter 81300 as the outcall number.

• Dial Last Caller—the MAXCS system will use an IP trunk to dial
the last caller if that call was received via an IP trunk.
• Call Restrictions
• Speed Dialing—be sure to enter all appropriate prefixes such as IP
trunk access code, Dialed Digits, and so on.
• Call Accounting
• Caller ID—displays location and extension number. If an

Operator Features
This section is provided specifically for the designated Operator.
Depending on your organization, this may be a single person or a number
of people.
Call Handling and the Auto Attendant
If your system uses the Auto Attendant, it can handle and route incoming
calls automatically with prompts and menus; most incoming calls do not
reach the Operator.
The call will ring at the Operator’s desk if the caller dials 0 while listening
to options given by the Auto Attendant. The sections at the beginning of
this chapter offer instructions on basic answering, putting calls on hold, and
transferring calls.
18
AltiServ User Guide
Checking the General Mailbox
The System Administrator may set up a General Mailbox where callers can
leave messages if they do not know who to speak with or when the Operator
is unavailable. This mailbox works like any other voice mailbox and has an
extension number and password. Be sure to check this mailbox frequently
and forward messages to the appropriate person as soon as possible.
To place a call on hold, do one of the following:
• Press the FLASH button to play music on hold, or
• Press the HOLD button to place the caller on hold without music.
If a call is placed on hold at the Operator’s desk, subsequent calls to the
Operator can be routed to the next extension in a queue, sent to a voice mail
(the General Mailbox), or placed into a new queue. Be sure to fully
understand your organization’s customized call processing procedures.
Operator Off-line
When the Operator Off-line feature is activated, all calls are directed to the
Auto Attendant. When callers dial 0 in the Auto Attendant, the system
transfers the call to the next extension in the workgroup if one is
configured. If there is no operator extension available, the system informs
the caller that the Operator is not available and to leave a message in the
Operator’s mailbox.
To activate this feature, press #39. When it’s active, you can deactivate it
also by pressing #39.
Outside Call Blocking
You can block access to all outside lines by pressing #38. Pressing #38 a
second time restores the system to its normal outside calling status.

Calls on Hold
Using a Mobile Extension
This section describes how to use a mobile extension (MobileExt) with
MAXCS. Using a MobileExt is similar to using an AltiGen stationery
phone. You can transfer a call, put it on hold, and you can conference. And
you can use MaxCommunicator/AltiAgent to handle your MobileExt
phone calls.
Note: These instructions assume that your system administrator has
configured your MobileExt to use the * key to simulate “FLASH”,
and the ** key to disconnect the current call and receive a dial tone
from the system.
Making Calls
From your mobile device (a cell phone or home phone) call into your
company's phone number that is assigned to receive MobileExt calls.
Consult your system administrator if you do not have the assigned phone
number. When you call into the system, the system will authenticate your
mobile number and give you the system dial tone. You can dial an
extension or an external number just like your are using your desk phone in
your office. The outside line access digit (for example, 9) is required when
making an outbound call. If the Forced Account Code feature is enabled,
you must enter an Account Code before making an external call.
Terminating Calls
At the end of a conversation, you can select one of the following two
options:
• You can hang up your cell phone or home phone to terminate the call.
• You may press ** to disconnect the current call and get a dial tone
without losing the cell phone’s connection to the system, if your
administrator has enabled this option. You must press the second *
within 1.5 seconds.
Answering Calls
When you answer your MobileExt call, one of three things may happen,
depending on how the system administrator has configured your phone:
• You are connected with the caller.
20
AltiServ User Guide
• You hear a special tone when you answer the call, and then you are
connected with the caller.
• You hear the phrase “To accept this call, please press any digit.” You
must press any key within 3 seconds to connect the call; otherwise it
will time out and the call will be treated as an agent/extension RNA
and will be routed according to its workgroup/extension setting.
While connected to a call, you can press the * key to put the caller on hold.
The * key is interpreted by the AltiGen system as a FLASH key to hold the
call. Press the * key again to reconnect to the call.
Caution: When you have pressed the * key to hold a call, do not hang
up your handset when using a home phone or disconnect
your cell phone.
Transferring Calls
To transfer the currently connected call:
1.
Press the * key.
2.
At the dial tone, dial the third party’s extension number, or if you are
transferring to an external phone, dial your company’s trunk-line
access prefix (for example, 9) and the external phone number.
3.
When the third party answers, announce the call or simply hang up.
To abort the transfer and reconnect to the incoming call, press * again
before the transfer is complete.
Transferring Calls into the AltiGen Voice Mail System
To send an outside call into the AltiGen Voice Mail system, press
* # 4 0. The system will terminate the connection to the MobileExt device
after * # 4 0 is dialed.
Transferring Calls Directly to a User’s Voice Mailbox
To transfer a call directly into a user’s voice mailbox, press * ## and the
user’s extension number. The system will terminate the connection to the
MobileExt device after you dial * ## plus the extension number.

Conference Calls
You can place conference calls that include up to 5 parties, and you can
speak privately with each party before adding them to the conference call.
To conference an outgoing call:
1.
Press the * key.
2.
At the dial tone, dial the next party’s phone number.
3.
Wait for the third party to answer, and announce the conference call.
4.
Press # to put all three parties into the conference call.
If you are using MaxCommunicator/AltiAgent, and you initiated the
conference call, you can select another conference member and drop that
member from the conference simply by disconnecting the call.
To conference an incoming call:
1.
When you hear a call waiting tone, press the * key to connect to the
incoming call.
2.
Press # to add the caller to the conference.
If Multiple Call Waiting is set for the extension, conferencing an
incoming call must be done through MaxCommunicator/AltiAgent. If only
Single Call Waiting is set, both MaxCommunicator/AltiAgent and the
phone itself can be used to conference an incoming call.
Using a Client Application with a Mobile Extension
You can use MaxCommunicator/AltiAgent to handle mobile extension
calls the same way you would to handle stationery extension calls. See the
MaxCommunicator Manual and the AltiAgent Manual.

Transfer to AltiGen Voice Mail System
If the Auto Attendant is not active when you want to log in from a remote
phone, you must have the operator or any other internal user transfer you
into the AltiGen Voice Mail System. There are two ways to transfer users
into the AltiGen Voice Mail System:
•
Normally, anyone in the office is able to send an outside user into the
AltiGen Voice Mail System by pressing FLASH #40 while connected
to the user.
•
If FLASH is disabled1, you can also log in to the AltiGen Voice Mail
System by pressing * during the voice mail greeting of any extension.
If you’re calling your own extension, you then enter your password. If
you’re calling someone else’s extension, press # to enter your
extension and then your password.
After a remote login, you can dial 9 from the main menu to return to the
Auto Attendant, provided the Auto Attendant is configured and activated.
This allows you to access voice mail and also speak with or leave messages
for others on the same phone call. Even if you decide not to leave a
message, you can press 9 to return to the Auto Attendant.
If you leave a voicemail message and press # for delivery options and then
# to send it, you are given the option to return to the Auto Attendant to try
other extensions.

AltiServ User Guide
About the Delivery Number
When setting this delivery phone number, the AltiGen Voice Mail System
asks you to enter the number (up to a maximum of 64 digits), using the long
distance prefix 1 for out of area phone numbers. You must also identify the
type of number: extension, phone number, or pager. You don’t need to enter
the trunk, route access trunk, or route access code as part of the number.
The destination number cannot be a virtual extension or a workgroup
extension. Also, please see “Sending Messages” on page 27.
If the system is unable to reach you for Message Notification or Reminder
Calls, it will play “Attempts to reach you earlier were unsuccessful” the
next time you log in to the AltiGen Voice Mail System. Also, the system
cannot reach you at an outside location if there are no trunk lines available
when the system attempts to make the call.
After pressing 4 at the Main Menu to hear the Personal Options menu, press

The AltiGen Voice Mail System will prompt you for the activate
and deactivate times. If the hour digit is “1” in the case of one
o’clock for example, press # after the entry. Always enter two digits
for minutes. The AltiGen Voice Mail System will only accept 10minute intervals such as 10:10 or 10:20 and not 10:15.

Call Forwarding
You can configure Call Forwarding from your phone or from a remote
location by dialing into the AltiGen Voice Mail System and following the
steps listed here:
Note: Forwarding calls to a pager is possible but not recommended
since callers will only hear what is heard when calling a pager and
might not know to enter a return phone number unless instructed.
Also, please see “Sending Messages” on page 27.

Feature Tips
Each time you log in to the AltiGen Voice Mail System, you hear a Feature
Tip—helpful tips and reminders about the most useful MAXCS system
features. There are a total of 11 tips and a different tip is played each time
you access the AltiGen Voice Mail System.
Another way to listen to Feature Tips is by pressing #55 on your telephone.
You can listen to just one tip at a time or listen to all the tips at once.
To turn this feature off, press 6 at the Personal Options menu. This is a
toggle feature, so that if the feature is turned off, pressing 6 at the Personal
Options menu will turn it back on again.
Using Distribution Lists
Distribution lists provide a way to use a single destination number to send
messages to a group of people. You can send or forward a message to a list
just as you would to an extension. When you send a message to a list, it is
sent to everyone on the list.
AltiServ User Guide
33
Voice Mail
If it is an external number, begin with the outside trunk or route access
digit and any long distance prefix digits such as 1 and area code.
You can create up to 100 distribution lists, and each list can have up to 64
entries. An entry can be an extension of any kind, including virtual or
workgroup extensions, or another distribution list, so in effect there is no
practical limit to the number of people to which you can send a single
message.
When you create lists at your station, they are your personal distribution
lists—every extension can have its own lists. There may also be system
distribution lists created by your system administrators.

Log On/Off IP Extension (Dynamic IP Addressing Only)
With a few exceptions (noted below), an IP extension works exactly the
same as an ordinary, “analog” extension, with the added advantage of
letting you work remotely without any extra cabling.
The IP option is available only if your extension is set up to be an IP
extension by your system administrator.
If your IP extension has “dynamic” IP addressing, you must log in to an IP
extension whenever you want to use an IP connection.
AltiServ User Guide

To log on or off an IP extension:
For an AltiGen IP phone, use #27 to log in to the MAXCS system and #26
to log off. Do not use voicemail to log in.
For certified non-AltiGen IP phones, use voicemail to log in:
• After pressing 4 at the Main Menu to hear the Personal Options menu,
press 8 to log on or off an IP extension. You do not have to call from
the same phone to log off.
While logged in to the IP extension, all calls to your extension will be
routed to the IP extension, and all calls you make will be treated as calls
originating from your extension.
While logged off the IP extension, all calls to your extension will be routed
to voicemail unless you change your default call handling settings.
Important:Log off the IP extension when you no longer want to use it.
Otherwise, incoming calls may be routed to another user in the
event that you lose your Internet connection.
One Number Access Options
An extension user has the option of enabling or disabling One Number
Access (ONA) through the AltiGen Voice Mail System. The user will hear
a specific system message depending on how the extension is configured.
If ONA is not enabled for your extension in MaxAdministrator, the system
will say the option is not available. If ONA is enabled, the system will
allow you to access ONA options.
Press 4 at the Main Menu to hear the Personal Options menu, then press 9
to access ONA options, then press:
• 0 to disable ONA
• 1 to enable ONA for any time of day
• 2 to enable ONA for business hours only
• 3 to enable ONA for non-business hours only
• 4 to enable ONA based on your pre-configured schedule

Dynamic Messaging
The MAXCS system provides special Dynamic Messaging features to
provide support for business travelers who need these remotely enabled
functions.
The Zoomerang feature enables you to return a call with the push of one
button while you are in the AltiGen Voice Mail System. Private Messaging
provides a way to leave a private message for callers who are difficult to
reach.
Zoomerang
How it Works, with and without Caller ID
When you make a Zoomerang callback, the system automatically makes
the call to the number captured by Caller ID. The Caller ID information is
captured for all internal users and for external callers who have a publicly
listed, unblocked number or who have entered their callback number in the
delivery options menu after leaving the message (see “The Caller’s
Options” on page 38).
If the caller ID was not captured, the user can enter the number manually.
If it is an external number, be sure to dial the outside line access digit and
any long distance prefix digits such as 1 and area code. Also, please see
“Sending Messages” on page 27.
Zoomerang is configured for each user; check your access with your
system administrator.
To use Zoomerang:
1.
After or while listening to a new or saved message, press 5 to call the
sender of the message.
The system places the call if the Caller ID number is available.
2.
If the Caller ID is not available, you can manually enter the number.
AltiServ User Guide
37
Voice Mail
The Zoomerang feature enables the user to listen to messages in the
AltiGen Voice Mail System, make calls to the parties who left the
messages, and then return to the AltiGen Voice Mail System (like a
boomerang). For example, this feature can allow a traveler to return calls
for all messages with one call into the AltiGen Voice Mail System from a
cellular phone.
3.
Press *** to disconnect from the call and return to the AltiGen Voice
Mail System.
The Caller’s Options
After leaving a message, the caller can simply hang up or press # for the
following options.
• * to re-record the message
• 1 to specify delivery options
• 2 to attach a call back number
(If the callback number is outside of your outcall accessibility, the
system cannot return the call. Please check with your system administrator for your toll restrictions.)
• # to send the message
After pressing 2, the caller is asked to leave a call back number beginning
with the area code. To notify your callers of this option, you may want to
mention the option to leave a call back number in your personal greeting.
If the caller’s number is a publicly listed number, there is no need to enter
their callback number since the MAXCS system automatically captures
their caller ID information.
Private Messaging
You have the ability to leave a private, detailed message in the AltiGen
Voice Mail System for a caller in case you are not at your desk or in the
office to take the call. This feature is perfect for those who are difficult to
reach and want to leave information for callers to pick up. When you leave
a private message, the system asks callers to enter the letters of their names
(last name followed by first name) to check if they have a private message.
To Leave A Private Message:
At the Main Menu, press 5 to access the Private Messaging menu and then
proceed as follows:
1.
Press 2 to record a new message.
2.
At the tone, record message and press #.
3.
Using the number pad, enter the recipient’s last name followed by the
first name. Use 1 for “Q” and “Z”.
