Avaya IP Office

The Avaya IP Office platform is the ultimate in converged voice and data technology. IP Office brings a combination of voice and data applications formerly reserved for only the largest corporations. Cutting edge customer service with easy to use tools is now available to the smallest of businesses.





  • Follow Me

  • Summary: Have your calls redirected to another user's extension, but use your coverage, forwarding and voicemail settings if the call receives busy tone or is not answered.
  • Follow Me is intended for use when a user is present to answer calls but for some reason is working at another extension such as temporarily sitting at a colleague's desk or in another office or meeting room. Typically you would use Follow Me if you don't have a Hot Desking login code or if you don't want to interrupt your colleague from also receiving their own calls.

Call Types Redirected





Hunt Group

VM Ringback

  • Priority
    Follow Me is overridden by DND except for callers in the user's DND Exception Numbers List. Follow Me overrides Forward Unconditional but can be followed by the user's Forward on Busy or Forward on No Answer based on the status of the Follow Me destination.  

  • Destination
    The destination must be an internal user extension number. It cannot be a hunt group extension number or an external number.

  • Duration
    The Follow Me user's no answer timeout is used. If this expires, the call either follows their Forward on No Answer setting if applicable, or goes to voicemail is available. Otherwise the call continues to ring at the destination.  

  • Phone
    When enabled, the phone can still be used to make calls. Normal dial tone is replaced by system locale specific alternate dial tone unless secondary dial tone is triggered.

  • Exceptions

  • The Follow Me destination can make return calls which will not be redirected.

  • The call coverage settings of the user are applied to their Follow Me calls. The call coverage settings of the destination are not applied to Follow Me calls it receives.


Follow Me Controls

Follow Me


A user's Follow Me settings can be viewed and changed through the User | Forwarding tab within the IP Office's configuration settings. Note that on this tab, entering a Follow Me Number also enables Follow Me.  


The following short code features/button programming actions can be used:





Follow Me Here


Follow Me Here Cancel


Follow Me To


Phone Manager

Users can set a Follow Me To Number and enable Follow Me through the Forwarding tab. Click and select the Forwarding tab.

When a user has Follow Me enabled, it is indicated by FollowTo and the destination in the title bar. It is not indicated on Speed Dial icons set to the user. Other status icons remain linked to the user's normal telephone and not to the status of the destination.  


A SoftConsole user can view and edit a user's Follow Me settings. Through the directory, select the required user. Their current status including Follow Me is shown. Double-click on the details and select Forwarding to alter their forwarding settings including Follow Me.  


For calls initially targeted to the user but then redirected, when voicemail is invoked the mailbox of the user is used and not the mailbox of the destination.  

For Voicemail Pro, the Play Configuration Menu action can be used to let callers alter or set their current Follow Me destination.
