ESI – Remote Setting of Greetings

Remote Setting of Day, Night, Holiday, Auto Modes & Greetings

Normally, the system’s DAY/NIGHT MODE operation will be manually controlled at an ESI desktop phone and/or set to follow the DAY/NIGHT MODE tables (programmed by the Installer) automatically. In addition, the Administrator can remotely change the mode and/or re-record the HOLIDAY GREETING to handle unexpected closings such as for INCLEMENT WEATHER.

Remotely logging into the system with the ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD lets the caller do the following:

• Re-record the greetings (DAY, NIGHT, DAY2 & NIGHT2)
• Re-record the HOLIDAY greeting
• Change the mode to DAY / NIGHT / HOLIDAY / DAY2 / NIGHT2 (or AUTO)

  1. At the MAIN GREETING, enter * * 4 5 6 # — or the new PASSWORD — to enter remote programming mode.
  2. You’ll hear prompts that will allow you to change the answer mode (DAY, NIGHT, DAY2, NIGHT2, HOLIDAY or AUTO) and/or to re-record the HOLIDAY GREETING and the main greeting (ID 1). Follow the prompts to perform the desired operation.
  3. Exit by pressing * and hanging up.

Samsung — Phone System Instructions


Samsung – First Time Voicemail Easy Setup

    Required to log-in as a subscriber. Password length can be from 1 to 8 digits.
    This recorded name plays to your callers when they are transferred through the Auto Attendant. The Automated Directory also plays your recorded name so callers get confirmation that they have selected their intended party.
    Note: By default you will not be included in the Dial By Name Directory if you do not record your name.
    You are asked to first enter (spell out) and accept your Last Name, then your First Name on the Telephone Keypad. The Automated Directory uses this feature for callers who know your name but do not know your extension number. Example for Jane Doe: Doe would be entered as 3 6 3 and Jane would be entered as 5 2 6 3.
    This Personal Greeting plays to your callers when you do not answer your phone. If you are only going to record one greeting, this is generally the one greeting you should record. If you do not record this greeting a system generated greeting will tell the caller you are not available and give them the option to leave you a message or dial another extension number.
    Note: Step 5 may or may not be available depending on your system’s configuration.
    This Greeting is only used if you do not have a Primary Greeting recorded and/or another Subscriber transfers a caller directly into your Mailbox.

NW Cloud Talk — Phone System Instructions


Handling Calls

Your cloud phone system features various ways to move calls around, including park, voicemail transfer, and more. In this section, references to BLFs are the 1-touch buttons to extensions of coworkers.

To Answer a Call Using a Handset

  • Lift the handset off-hook.

To Answer a Call Using a Speakerphone

  • Press the SPEAKER button.

On your phone system, hold is a local function. This means a call held on your phone cannot be picked up at another station. PARK is a system-wide function. This means a call parked at one phone may be picked up by any phone.

  1. Press any green PARK button to park the call. The park button will turn red identifying there is a call parked on it.
  2. Hang up.

Voicemail transfer routes a caller straight to the recipient’s voicemail box without ringing the recipient’s phone.

  1. Press the TRANSFER button.
  2. Dial 7 + EXTENSION — or — press the RECIPIENT’S BLF KEY.

Example: For extension 101’s voicemail press TRANSFER + 7 + 101.

Intercom functionality is ideal for announcing visitors or asking a quick question. When one phone intercoms another extension, it rings the other phone by default.

  • Dial the EXT — or — press the RECIPIENT’S BLF KEY

To Live Answer Intercom

When one phone intercoms another extension, it does not ring the other phone. Instead, the other phone will beep, and then its microphone and speaker turn on.

    • Dial 99 + EXT  — or — 99 + RECIPIENT’S BLF KEY

Example: To intercom extension 101, dial 99 + 101.


Directed Call Pickup

Directed call pickup (DCP) allows you to answer a call ringing at another station.

  • Dial *35 + EXTENSION — or —  RECIPIENT’S BLF KEY

Example: If extension 101 is ringing, dial *35 + 101 to pick up that call.

  2. Press the CONFERENCE key/softkey, and then dial the second participant.
  3. After the second participant picks up, press CONFERENCE again to connect everyone.


Setting Up Your Mailbox

  • The first time you log in to your mailbox you are walked through recording your name for the directory and recording your personal greeting.
  • The name recording is for the dial-by-name directory, so when someone enters the first three letters of your last name, it will play back your name recording.
  • The greeting plays when your mailbox is reached. It is very important to make a custom message, as many callers will not leave messages at mailboxes that have generic greetings.
