Can't using softkey for call forwarding

Answered Question
Dec 22nd, 2008

Hi,

With CM6.1.2, all phones get reorder tones when press call forwarding softkey button. Is there anyway to enable this feature globally for all phones? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I have this problem too.

Hi Steve,

This sounds like an issue with the Call Forward CSS. You could try changing the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter that displays in the Clusterwide Parameters (Feature - Forward) section of the Service Parameter Configuration window to;

•With Activating Device/Line CSS

Have a look;

Call Forward and Call Pickup Settings

Calling Search Space Activation Policy

Three possible values exist for this option:

•Use System Default

•With Configured CSS

•With Activating Device/Line CSS

If you select the With Configured CSS option, the Forward All Calling Search Space that is explicitly configured in the Directory Number Configuration window controls the forward all activation and call forwarding. If the Forward All Calling Search Space is set to None, no CSS gets configured for Forward All. A forward all activation attempt to any directory number with a partition will fail. No change in the Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All occurs during the forward all activation.

If you prefer to utilize the combination of the Directory Number Calling Search Space and Device Calling Search Space without explicitly configuring a Forward All Calling Search Space, select With Activating Device/Line CSS for the Calling Search Space Activation Policy. With this option, when Forward All is activated from the phone, the Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All automatically gets populated with the Directory Number Calling Search Space and Device Calling Search Space for the activating device.

With this configuration (Calling Search Space Activation Policy set to With Activating Device/Line), if the Forward All Calling Search Space is set to None, when forward all is activated through the phone, the combination of Directory Number Calling Search Space and activating Device Calling Search Space gets used to verify the forward all attempt.

If you configure the Calling Search Space Activation Policy to Use System Default, then the CFA CSS Activation Policy cluster-wide service parameter determines which Forward All Calling Search space will be used. If the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter gets set to With Configured CSS, then Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All will be used for Call Forwarding. If CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter gets set to With Activating Device/Line CSS, then Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All will be automatically populated with the Directory Number Calling Search Space and Device Calling Search Space for the activating device.

CFA CSS Activation Policy Service Parameter

Ensure the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter that displays in the Clusterwide Parameters (Feature - Forward) section of the Service Parameter Configuration window is set correctly for call forward all to work as intended. The parameter includes two possible values:

•With Configured CSS (default)

•With Activating Device/Line CSS

When the Calling Search Space Activation Policy is set to Use System Default, the value of the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter gets used to determine the Call Forward All CSS.

When the option With Configured CSS is selected, the primary and secondary CFA Calling Search Space get used. When the option With Activating Device/Line CSS is selected, the primary and secondary CFA Calling Search Space get updated with primary line Calling Search Space and activating Device Calling Search Space.

By default, the value of the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter is set to With Configured CSS.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your help. I think I didn't express the problem clearly. The problem is that when users try to set phone automatically forward calls to other extension via softkey, then get re-order tone. I need to know how to fix this. Thanks!

Steve

Rob pointed you in the right direction, your issue is most likely caused by insufficient privilages for forward all. Please take your time and read his post carefully and most likely it will solve your issue.
