Pegging Ringing Volume on Cisco IP Phones

My users often adjust their ringing volume to the lowest making it impossible for them or a colleague nearby to notice when their phones ring for possible pickup unless one coincidentally looks at the phone at that time. Does anyone know how I can set the minimum ringing volume a user can set on the Cisco IP Phone? I don't know how it sounds?

Re: Pegging Ringing Volume on Cisco IP Phones

Hi Chucks,

I don't know of a way to set a minimum ringing volume, but here is a way from preventing them from changing the volume levels;

Users are unable to change the ring volume if you disable the Settings Access parameter on the Phone configuration page. Complete these steps:

From the Cisco CallManager Administration page, choose Device > Phone, and click the phone for which you want to prevent a ring volume change.

Choose Disabled for the Settings Access parameter under the Product Specific Configuration section.

When Settings Access is enabled, you can change the phone network configuration, ring type, and volume on the phone. When you disable Settings Access, the Settings button is completely disabled and no options appear when you press the button. Also, you cannot adjust the ringer volume or save any volume settings. The option Restricted is available in Cisco CallManager version 4.1(3) and later. When you change Settings Access to Restricted, you can only access User Preferences and volume settings. By default, Settings Access is enabled.

From this doc;

Hope this helps!
