Configurable Feature Access Codes

Configurable Feature Access Codes

Description

IC-Talk 3 allows the Group or Company Administrator to select the Feature Access Codes (FAC) used to activate, deactivate, and configure various features. This may be required to duplicate functions Users are familiar with from legacy systems or to avoid conflicts with a Customer’s required numbering plan.

A Group or Company Administrator can configure a main and alternate access code for each Business VoIP feature that Users can access through their phones. Each is configured with a default access code which you can change if required. Each feature or function must have at least one access code.  If no feature access code is associated with a specific feature, Users cannot interact with this feature through their phones.

The system has default values for Feature Access Codes. The table below indicates the default Feature Access Codes (FAC) available.

 
NOTE:  For User level features, individual Users will only be able to use the Feature Access Codes for features that are contained in their assigned Feature Pack.

Function

Configurable Feature Codes allow the Group or Company Administrator to configure the Feature Access Codes used by Users in the Site to activate, deactivate, and configure various IC-Talk 3 features.

A Feature Access Code is defined as a string of two digits with a standard one or two character prefix composed of special characters like star (*) or hash (#). The default prefix is a single star (*).  This code can be dialled by the Users in the Site to interact with those features.

Feature Access Codes must be unique within a Site. It is possible to configure an alternate Feature Access Code for each feature access code-based feature.  When you add or change a feature access code, the IC-Talk 3 service validates the code to ensure that:

  • There are no conflicts/collisions between Feature Access Codes
  • There are no conflicts/collisions between Feature Access Codes and extensions

A second validation is applied when adding an extension to a User, or modifying a User’s extension. If a conflict/collision occurs when either a Feature Access Code or an extension is modified, an error message appears.

 

Limiting Conditions

When there is a conflict/collision between a Feature Access Code and an Extension or a Speed Dial Code, the Feature Access Code has priority.

Feature Access Codes must be unique within the Site.

When no Feature Access Code is associated with a feature, Users in the Site cannot interact with that feature through their phone.

Configuration

Feature Access Codes are configurable by the Group or Company Administrator through the Business Portal Site Feature Settings page, under ‘Feature Access Codes’.

Feature Access Codes are subject to the following rules:

  • A feature access code can be two and 5 digits in length, including any special prefix characters.
  • Special prefix characters (*, #) can only be used for the first two digits.
  • The last digit must be number from 0 to 9.

To configure the customizable Feature Access Codes,

  • Navigate to: - Sites (select Site) > Site Features > Feature Access Codes.

The values in the ‘Main’ column are the default Feature Access Codes and should not be changed.

In the ‘Alternate’ column key in the required changes to the Feature Access Codes for this Site keeping to the following rules.

  • A feature access code can be two digits in length.
  • Special prefix characters (*, #) can only be used for the first two digits.
  • The last digit must be number from 0 to 9.
  • Click Save.
