Direct Extension Dial Delay (#112)
Use this feature to specify the number of times (0–9) an incoming call should ring before it is answered by the Direct Extension Dial feature.
- This feature works independently of Line Ringing, which determines how an outside call rings at the extension: immediately, after a 20 second delay, or not at all. Direct Extension Dial Delay specifies the number of rings a caller hears before the system answers the call.
- If you use Caller ID, make sure Direct Extension Dial Delay is set to 2 rings or more to
ensure that Caller ID information is captured.
- If you use T1 lines with Direct Inward Dialing (DID) that are not administered for DirectInward Dialing (DID) in PARTNER ACS R7.0 PC Administration, set the number of rings to 1 ring or more.
To change the number of times an incoming call rings at extension 10 before the system answers it:
- Press feature +(00)+(system program)+(system program)+#112 at extension 10 or 11.
- To change the number of rings, press (Next Data) until the appropriate value appears. Values range from 0 to 9, where 0 means the call is answered immediately. The factory setting is 2.
- Select another procedure, or exit programming mode.
