IP Office Call Park
As an alternative to placing a call on hold, a call can be parked on the IP Office system to be picked by another user. The call park facility is available through the user’s telephone, one-X Portal for IP Office, Phone Manager or SoftConsole. Calls are Parked against a “park slot number” which can be announced over a paging system so the person the call is for can go to any phone and collect the call by dialling the park slot number.
For convenience IP Office Phone Manager has 4 pre-defined park buttons. On digital phones with DSS/BLF keys it is possible to program Park keys that will indicate when there is a call in a particular park slot and allow calls to be parked or retrieved. There is a system configurable timeout that determines how long a call may remain parked before it is represented to the extension that originally parked the call.
