What product: CCX or CCE?

Assuming CCX: Yes this will work but I would not recommend it. When an agent goes off-hook to make a call, the phone uses the primary line unless a line is manually selected. If the ACD line is not the primary line on the phone, outbound calls will not put the agent in a Outbound/Not Ready state. CCX would continue to offer calls to the agent when they are already on the phone.

My setup is CCX 7.0(1) SR5 integrated with CME 7.1,So it is better to have Agent extension as primary line and rest of the numbers as secondary,also kindly note that one of the line is configured as Overlaped number.

My requirement is to have both Agent DN and Overlapped DN in the same phone as Primary and Secondary or Viceversa is that possible?
