SOURCE: Stop ringing at certian phones when outside calls come in.

Partner, all releases.
Receptionist Call Routing. If you want calls to be answered by the receptionist first, set the lines at the receptionist's extension to Immediate Ring and the lines at the users' extensions to No Ring. (This is the factory setting)
Receptionist Backup. If you want all calls on a line to ring directly at users' extensions -with the receptionist providing backup -set the line at the users' extensions to Immediate Ring. Then set the line (or lines) at the receptionist's extension to Delayed Ring. An incoming call that is not answered by a user within 20 seconds will also ring at the receptionist's extension.
To change the way outside lines or pools ring at an extension:

  1. Press [ Feature ] [ 0 ] [ 0 ] [ System Program ] [ System Program ] [ Central Tel Program ].
  2. Enter the number of the extension to be programmed for Line Ringing. The green lights next to the line or pool buttons on the phone show the current Line Ringing settings for all lines assigned to the extension. (If a line is not assigned to a button, the green light next to the button is off.) The following ringing options can be shown by the green light next to the line button.
    • Immediate Ring - on steady
    • Delayed Ring - flashes slowly
    • No Ring - flutters quickly
  3. To change Line Ringing for any line, press the line or pool button until the button light shows the correct setting (the setting for the currently selected line or pool also appears on the display).
  4. Continue programming or exit programming mode.

SOURCE: Do you have a programming

You can do this in single digits if you change the selector code to 6. Look at page 6 of the following pdf.
Each selector code, except 9 is preceded with a 5, which is direct extension transfer. If you create a digit, say 7, selector code of 6 and put your extension range in the extensions, you should be able to dial 71x and do an immediate transfer to voice mail. This is sort of a guess as I don't have my Partner system set up on the bench.

If you strip the right portion of the url away, you can find a full VS r5 manual on the wedophones website.

Lucent partner 34D calls go directly to voicemail

Sounds like either you have do-not-disturb activated, or you have call-forward-all to voice mail set. You should have call-forward-no-answer turned on but it's easy to enter wrong code. Find a list of codes for your system and see if its one of those.

Program "Do not disturb" on business phone

From the manual: You need to program a button with FEATURE 01.

Do Not Disturb is available only on system telephones.
Do Not Disturb requires a button with lights. When the Do Not Disturb feature is on, the light
is also on, indicating that the telephone will not ring.
¦ Use Do Not Disturb when you do not want the auto attendant or the voice messaging system
to transfer calls to you.
¦ Use Do Not Disturb if you are assigned to a Hunt Group and you leave your desk, so calls to
the Hunt Group will skip your extension and ring immediately at the next available extension
in the group.
¦ To avoid missing calls when Do Not Disturb is not needed, turn it off
