Problem: when the receptionist is on line 1 and a call is received the caller hears 5 rings before the receptionist hears 1 ring. It appears that the configuration isn’t allowing for the call to go to the next free extension.
Configured: 4 extensions are used, 7100, 7101, 7102, 7103. On each line it is configured for if busy or no answer the destination is the next line.
Need assistance in correct configuration so that if a line is busy it will automatically go to the next free extension.
Phone Type: 7970

What are you using to distribute the calls? I guess you are using Call Forward No Answer/Busy to the next line in the list?
If so, you will want to set the Busy Trigger for each line to 1. This causes it to return busy, so will go to the Busy forward destination...
Please rate helpful posts....
Can you tell me where to find the "Busy Trigger"? Is it under the DN info or line appearance? I'm a LAN/WAN person that now has the privilege of taking on the phone system. :-)
I checked under the Call Forward and Call Pickup Settings which are all configured to the next extension.
I appreciate yours and Rob's quick responses. Can I give points to both of you.......
It sounds to me like the Forward Busy setting is not really being
engaged on these lines. I would look at the Busy Trigger and make
sure it is set @ 1 for 7100, 7101, 7102 for 7103 you probably
want it set to go to VM.
You've trumped my baboon-like typing skills once
again my friend + 5 points for your good work!
I checked all the lines; 7100-7103 and they are set to "Busy Trigger" "1" but I did notice that the actual phone extensions that are associated with the receptionist are set to a Busy Trigger of "2" and Max call of "4" so I did a little reading and it appears that I should also change those to "1" is that correct?
The Busy/Max Calls settings exist 'between' the phone and line - that is, they are a propery of the link between the two. So if you browse to the line through the phone config page you will find the settings, and should set them all consistently for each phone/line combination.
The problem is still occurring even with all lines having the "busy signal" set to "1". Any other ideas?
Just to confirm a couple of things here;
1. these numbers do not show up on multiple phones if so,
set the Busy Trigger" on each DN appearance.
2.the Forward Busy internal/External have both been set to
roll to the next number in the list so 7100 Forward Busy Internal/External
to 7101, 7101 Forward Busy Internal/External to 7102,etc. etc.
3. The Calling search space for the Forward Busy Internal/External
can access the next line in the list
