Directed Call Park with BLF

Answered Question

When you have a speed dial BLF configured with a Directed Call Park number, is it possible to press this button when a call is parked on it to get the call or do you need to dial the retrieval prefix and the Directed Call Park number each time to get the call?

Hi there,


Great question


Many people have wanted Directed Call Park/BLF to work this way, but

sadly it doesn't


You cannot use the BLF key to actually Pickup the Parked call, you must

dial the prefix/parking stall combination.


Cheers!

Thanks Rob. That's kinda what I thought...maybe they'll build this capability into the button someday.

We are currently using directed call park BLF buttons. We are able to park and retrieve by pressing the BLF buttons.

Hi Stephen,


Is that done by another speed dial to retrieve the call or by using the BLF one for both?

  • Cisco Employee,

I know this is an old thread but I figured I'd post a follow-up should someone come across it.  You can use a Directed Call Back BLF speed dial to answer parked calls as well.  Here's what the setup looks like. 


Directed Call Park DN: 5555 / pt-internal

Retrieval Prefix: 88


Create a translation pattern 5555 / pt-park-pickup where you prefix 88, and set the CSS to css-internal.


On the phone with the Directed Call Park BLF speed dial, set the device level CSS to css-park-pickup.  Set the device's Subscribe CSS to css-internal so that BLF status works correctly.  When the user presses the speed dial button the translation pattern will be hit and prefix the retrieval code.  One other thing to be aware of, if you need to have pt-internal in the device's CSS make sure that the pt-park-pickup is higher in the list since partition order is the tiebreaker when you have equal matches.
