I am running UCM 7.1.3 and Unity 7.0. I am fairly new to Call Manager. My boss recently wanted to revive an old process that we had on the old analog switches that had the 3900 number ring on all IS phones (it was an IS Emergency Line number). I just added the number as a second line on all of the IS phones and bingo it worked like a champ. It can't be handled from outside but the original intent was not to be able to since we had pagers for outside emergency calls.
Now he wants to get rid of our two emergency pagers and handle it through the 3900 number. What he wants is for 3900 to ring on all IS phones just like it does now from 8 to 5 on weekdays but engage a call handler after 5 on weekdays and all day on the weekends. The call handler will have instructions to go to one number if the number 1 is pressed and go to another number if the number 2 is pressed.
The call handler part I feel good about. I can set up a call handler for 3900 to be active only during after hours on weekdays and all day on the weekends. And if this will override the ringing on the IS phones during this time I have what I want.
Can a directory number be a call handler number also? Will the call keep the number from ringing on the phones during it's operational hours?
