Translation patterns for Speed Dials & plant paging

Unanswered Question
Jun 22nd, 2007

Hello. We have ton of Translation Patterns that we use as Speed Dials. They are all set up as:

- Translation Pattern: *xxx. (i.e., *760.)

- Discard Digits: PreDot

- Called Party Transform Mask: 918005551212

These all work great, but now we have a need to do in-plant paging for some sites that we are migrating from Nortel to Cisco. The current (and published) in-plant paging numbers are *76, *77, etc.

If we set up a Translation Pattern as *76., with PreDot and then the Mask as an extention (that goes to the paging system), that works GREAT - but now all of the speed dials that start with *76 are broken, and they all go to the paging system.

How can we get around this, and still use the published paging numbers, while preserving the speed dial numbers?

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

Not sure why you are doing a pre dot since the pattern is *XXX.

For the Paging I would use the a access code like 8*76 predot

All of the speed dials were set up as translation patterns well before I started supporting this system.....

Thanks for the replies.

the reason for this behaviour is Urgent Priority, but you can't this option disable in translation patterns. you need to configure an escape character (e.q.8) for the paging system OR the TP.
