You will need to talk to the phone administrator. It needs to be set up in system admin.

How do we remove an extension from a hunt group in a Norstar Meridian M7316 telephone?

Hi Marty,
Don't worry about counting your way through. Just log into the system, and you will see Terminals and Sets. Press next until you see System Programming, then press Show. Next until you see Hunt Groups, and press show. You can pick the hunt group you're changing and delete the extension from there.

If you're not seeing what we tell you you should see, double check the model of your phone.

Move a hunt group button to different position on set

Hunt group buttons are just like lines, they occupy to first buttons on the phone. The only way to move a hunt group button is up or down the list of lines. If you want it first, you have to remove all assigned line from the extension to be changed this includes the hunt group. Now come out of programming and go back in to the extension. Add the lines or hunt group in the order you want them. NOTE IF THE LINES ARE TO BE OUT OF ORDER NUMERICALLY, YOU HAVE TO ADD THE ONES THAT ARE IN ORDER AND LEAVE PROGAMMING AND COME BACK IN AGAIN. THIS SETS THE ORDER OF APPEARANCE.

I should be able to use Feature 75 to pick up an incoming call; however, when I try the phone tells me that it is denied in admin. How do I fix this?

more than likely your not in the same pick up group as the phone that is ringing. Instead of setting up pick up groups you could use feature 76 (directed pick up) if you know which set is ringing.

I have 3 lines they will not ring up when you are on the line no one can call they get a busy singal but the other line work when you dial that number

Hunt groups are set up by the service provider and not related to the phone system. In a 3 or 4 line hunt group, you're given a pilot number and 2 or 3 other lines. In some exchanges, you can dial any of the numbers and they will hunt to the rest of the numbers in the's very rare. Instead, you must always dial the pilot number and each line is tested, with the first idle line being rung.

If your callers are getting a busy when the first line is busy and the other lines are idle, call the phone company and discuss your telephone plan. Tell them your lines won't hunt and they'll tell you why or fix it.

Need to assign 5 extensions to a group and auto forward incoming calls to all of them

Which system? Ring groups are set up with 500-529 access codes, notably 529 is the one for voice mail. Look in your installers guide for MMC that deals with HUNT groups and assign the extension to a new group.

If you need a manual, post back with your system model.
