Shared Line

The concept of sharing one extension across multiple phone devices is called Shared Line. When there is an incoming call to the extension, all the phones that have the extension shared, rings at a time. You can answer the call from any preferred phone.

Example: The extension of the Dr. John is shared with the personal assistant, Ms. Nancy. The incoming calls ring on both the Dr. John’s phone and Ms. Nancy’s phone. Thus, either Dr. John or Ms. Nancy can answer the incoming call.

To enable shared line, check the Shared Line check box on the Additional Settings page under Manage Site > Extensions > Modify Extensions. Then, navigate to Manage Site > Phones > Modify Phone > Buttonspage corresponding to the phones on which you want the extension to be shared, and select the extension.

You can set the maximum number of active calls for a shared line in the Max Calls (2-16) field on the Additional Settings page under Manage Site > Extensions > Modify Extensions.

Example: Consider that extension 1001 is shared on 3 phones and the maximum number of calls configured for the shared line is 2. At any time, there cannot be more than 2 active calls going on for 1001 on all the 3 phones.

Note: If you assign an extension on more than one phone device using theButtonspage under Manage Site > Phones > Modify Phone, the Shared Line check box under Manage Site > Extensions > Modify Extensions > Additional Settings gets checked automatically and cannot be unchecked.

Field

Description

Single Number Reach (SNR) provides end users the choice of answering an incoming call on their desk phone using a mobile phone (cellular network) or a Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) phone. On enabling SNR, an incoming call rings both on the desk phone and the mobile phone (or PSTN phone).

An active call can be swapped between the desk phone and the mobile phone (PSTN phone) without disconnecting the call.

SNR Number

Note

When entering the SNR number, you must start with the prefix to dial an outside line, followed by Country Code, National Destination Code (Area Code), and Subscriber Number.
