We recently had a Cisco system installed and everything is great except I am unable to get the distictive ring feature to work. Can some one give me a step by step solution for this using CCA. Here is what we have, UC540, 2 7965/7916, and 20 SPA508G. I would like the distictive ring on internal calls. I do not use CLI only CCA. I have all phones set to "distinctive ring > internal", see attached screen shot.
Ok thats what I will do, pay attention, never thought of that. Pay attention, thats what will make the phones ring differant. Thank you so much for your non-answer. Oh and excuse me for posting in the wrong forum, new to this, I should have "paid attention".
Hi I had spent AGES trying to get distinctive ring - only to be told it was working all along. (and it was if you're told how to notice the difference)
It really isn't distinctive - it SHOULD allow you the option to at least select two different ring tones. ring-ring v's ring just hasnt cut it for any customers i've installed systems for. Best advise is to point out the different ring BEFORE they ask about it - that seems to be the best 'work around' at this stage.
It actually sounds quite different when it's working. Not really sure what the "Distinctive" setting is for in the CCA > Users and Extensions. I really believe this is what is not working correctly. Setting this to anything but "none" makes a phone ring the same for both external and internal calls. Now if we could only have another distinctive ring for a ring back!? We changed from a 20+ year old Executone system that had this feature. With all that said I am extremely happy with the Cisco system and glad we finaaly made the change!
