User controlled login/out using line groups

Which s/w release enables users to login/out of a line group via phone? I'm looking for a list of 'soft' features that will help me convince managers we need to upgrade from 4.1.3

Re: User controlled login/out using line groups


Thanks for that.Great answer. Thanks for the completeness. Can I be cheeky and ask one more: Does it allow the Busy Lamp to show line status when monitoring a speed dial key on phone? (eg 7961).

Re: User controlled login/out using line groups

Hi Rich,

No worries :) This feature is only available with "Presence" functionality. This is only in CCM 5.X and 6.0 not in the 4.2 train.

Hope this helps! Its confusing isn't it.

Re: User controlled login/out using line groups

Thanks again Rob. Much appreciated. Wanted some 'bullets' to push 4.2 but BLF doesn't seem one of them :(
