Directed Call Pickup with Barge in

Description

Allows the user to Pick up a call or Barge Into a call on another user. Unlike Group Call Pickup, where a Feature Access Code is used to pick up a call on a pre-define list of users, Directed Call Pickup with Barge In uses a Feature Access Code plus the Extension Number of the phone to pick up or Barge into a call on any phone on the customers Site.

Note, Barge In cannot be completed if the user has Barge In Exempt set as a feature.

Function

  • User B dials *33 (default FAC) followed by User B’s extension number.

Barge In

  • User A is on a call to a customer
  • User B need to speak to user A urgently

Note: - A tone may or may not be played to User A to make them aware that Barge In has occurred. This is dependent on the Configuration of User B.
