Dial Intercom Groups
Dial Intercom Groups (DIG) are an internal paging system for the Meridian PBX System.
There are two ways you can set up these groups:
|R - Ring||If you dial someones 2-digit intercom number it will wait until it is answered before you will be able to talk.|
|V - Voice||This will ring once then automatically pick up so you can talk or listen. It will only ring continuously if the person is on the phone.|
To create a new Intercom Group, just create an Intercom Key on the phones that you want to be in the same Intercom group.
First print your existing groups:
LD 20 REQ: PRT TYPE: DIG CUST 0 then enter through.
This will give you the list of groups already programmed.
Adding an Intercom key:
REQ: CHG TYPE: 2616 TN: xxx xx xx xx ECHG: YES ITEM: KEY 8 DIG 1 10 V
Above, the KEY has been set as follows:
- This is the 8th key on a persons phone.
- The Dial INTERCOM Group "1"
- The persons personal group number "10"
- "V" = Voice...
You need to program this on at least 2 phones with the same Intercom Group numbers but with different Personal Numbers i.e. 10 and 11.
Person 10 would press his Intercom Key (key 8) and dial "11" and if the other
person "11" is off the phone it would ring once then automatically pick up. Then
you can just speak to them without them having to press anything.
You must assign everyone you want to be able to talk to on the same Group number. i.e. Group 1 members can only talk to other group 1 members so on and so forth.
