Set up 1-Way Paging

Paging is used to make an announcement over the speakerphone to a phone or group of phones. The called parties will not ring, but instead answer immediately into speakerphone mode.

Note: Paging is typically one way for announcements only.
  1. Go to Settings > PBX > Call Features > Paging/Intercom > Paging/Intercom, click Add.
  2. Set a 1-Way paging group.
    • Number: Use the default or specify a number for the paging group.
    • Name: Enter a name for the paging group.
    • Type: Choose 1-Way Paging.
    • Prompt: Optional. To play a prompt before making an announcement, you can choose a custom prompt.
      Note: If you want to customize a new prompt, refer to Upload a Custom Prompt or Record a Custom Prompt.
    • Dial * to Answer: If this option is checked, the paging group members can dial * to talk to the paging initiator.
      Note: When a member dials *, the group announcement will terminate, and the member who dials * can have a private call with the paging initiator.
    • Member: Choose the group members to the Selected box.
  3. Click Save and Apply.
When you dial the paging group number, the members in the group will hear the announcement.
