If the ringing line is programmed into one of your dss/blf buttons it should answer when you lift the handset. Else, if it is someone else's phone ringing, lift your handset and dial 40. That will only work if allowed in the pbx programming. Hope that helps.
In Panasonic, a DSS console is separate from the phone and some system functions can only be programmed on a DSS key. You can program some buttons to Directly Select Extensions, but they only select extensions and can't be used to replace DSS keys.
Yeah, I know it's confusing, but that's the nature of Panasonic. Other systems have DSS keys also and use that term.
One of the following two methods of programming "Preferred Line Assignment-Outgoing" should work depending on which Panasonic phone system your KX-T7433B phone is connected to. Try number one first, if PROGRAM 99 does not get you into station programming, try number 2.
1) Press PROGRAM button then dial 99 to enter station programming. Dial 1, then press INTERCOM button to select Intercom as your Preferred Line Assignment-Outgoing choice. Press AUTODIAL/STORE button to save programming. Press PROGRAM button to end station programming or lifthandset then replace in cradle to end station programming.
2) Press PROGRAM button then dial 19, press AUTODIAL/STORE button. Press INTERCOM button then AUTODIAL/STORE button. Press PROGRAM button to end station programming or lift handset and replace in cradle to end station programming.
If you have manual(z), they should. One, the OM (operating manual) will tell you how to set up your personal programming.
The buttons on the left side of a 7730 have lights, the buttons on the right do not, so they are programmed differently. Left side is DSS, right side is PF (personal feature). If you have spare left side buttons, press PROGRAM the button and dial 1 plus the ext number and STORE. The light will now follow the activity of the extension you programmed.
The buttons on the right have no lights, so you can only put in extension speed dial numbers. For that, press PROGRAM, the button, and dial the 3 digit extension number and STORE.
Depending on the system your phone is connected with, you can just press the button to dial, or you have to pick up the handset or SP-PHONE and select intercom (if not selected) and it will dial that extension, or if the system is a TAW, TD or higher, just press the button.
Just so we're on the same page, the PF buttons are the 12 buttons on the right and their ONLY function is one-touch dialing. They can't be CO buttons. The 12 buttons on the left are called CO buttons and they can be programmed to do a number of things, including CO, DSS, and feature access buttons.
To reprogram the button, press PROGRAM, the button, the dial 0 + the CO number (1-8) and STORE. Extensions are 1+ext and one-touch are 2+. Other features are in the programming guide.
The PF buttons are programmed by just dialing the digits, but if it calls out, you must dial an access code first, usually "9".
You will need to know which line(s), and on which station(s) (extensions) you want each line to ring.
Programming is accomplished as follows:
Default Installer Password = INTERCOM *746
You can enable different ringing assignments for individual lines and stations. You must program ringing assignments on a per station/per line basis. You can control ringing for every line that has appearance at a station assigning immediate, or direct, ringing to some lines and delayed ringing to others. NOTE: Do not program direct ringing for lines that you assign to the direct department calling feature. To Program: 1. Dial 54. “STA/LINE CONFIG.” 2. Dial 1 “DIRECT RING” —OR— Dial 2. “DELAY RING” NOTE: For no station ringing, skip step 3 and make no line selection. 3. Select line ports for ringing (LED On = Selected Ports). —Line port 1–14 = Dial 01–14 or press A1–A14 —Line port 15, 16 = Dial 15, 16 or press B1, B2 —Line port 17–24 = Dial 17–24 or press HOLD then press A1–A8. 4. Dial # when all line ports are selected. 5. Select station ports (LED On = Feature Assigned) —Station 10–57: Dial 10–57 or press C10–C57. 6. Dial * when all station ports are selected —OR— dial ** for next station/line ringing assignment —OR— dial ***for configuration mode.
To clear current setting, repeat procedure.
Use an LCD speakerphone and a DSS/BLF console at station port 11 or 13 to see which features are assigned to individual stations. While you can install any non-LCD digital telephone and use it for programming, visual feedback of the programming operations will not be available. You must always keep the handset of the LCD speakerphone on-hook while you use this telephone to program the system.
If you program that button to ba a DSS button for that station (41) it will intercom that station, can be used to transfer calls to that station, and will light up when it's busy. It could be called something else in programming like Station Intercom Button, Quick Transfer Key, etc..
Problem is, your phone can be used on many different Avaya phone systems that all program differently.
The manuals for the phones and systems are all available free at www.avaya.com but you need to know which system you have before looking for the manual.
