HOLD AND RETRIEVE USING THE BLF KEYS

Hi,

 

I have been trying to set up the subject but I can't seem to make it work. 8x8.com portal call this feature Call Park Extension. However, based on a lot of Poly Admin guide I read, no mention about the Call Park Extension. 

 

Hoping somebody in the community can help me with this setup. Been checking the different articles in this community but can't find anything similar.

 

Use case:

Let’s say we need to set up an efficient call flow in a hardware store with Lighting, Paints, and Lumber departments. When the front desk answers a call for the Lighting department., the front desk parks the call to the Lighting department extension. The call is then retrieved by the Lighting department. 

 

The front desk presses the BLF key to park the call for the Lighting department. The Lighting department presses the blinking BLF key on their phone to retrieve the call.

 

Phone Basic Information:
Phone Model: VVX 410
Part Number: 3111-46162-001 Rev:A
MAC Address: 00:04:F2:55:F6:E4
IP Mode: IPv4
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
UC Software Version: 5.9.6.2327 (SIP/UC using PDMS)
Updater Version: 5.9.7.38223
Call Platform: Cisco BroadWorks

 

Thank you.

Re: HOLD AND RETRIEVE USING THE BLF KEYS

Hello @jamimo ,

 

Welcome back to the Poly Community.

 

Some of this is set up in our config file and some is setup on the Broadsoft.

 

Broadsoft:

  • Create each department's user account + phone #
  • Assign the Busy Lamp Field service to each account
  • Create a BLF list for each account that includes each of the other departments
  • Enable "Call park notifications" while on the Busy Lamp field setup page

Poly:


Repeat the below for each phone changing the attendant.uri address for each. The specific star codes may need to change depending on how you've set up your broadsoft as well:

<KeySystemBlfParkRetrieve 
reg.1.enhancedCallPark.enabled="1" 
attendant.uri="<myBlfListAddress>" 

attendant.callAction="Park" 
attendant.callActionMenu.enabled="0" 
attendant.restrictPickup="0" 
attendant.behaviors.display.spontaneousCallAppearances.normal="0" 
call.directedCallPickupMethod="legacy" 
call.parkedCallRetrieveMethod="legacy" 
call.directedCallPickupString="*97" 
call.parkedCallString="*68" 
call.parkedCallRetrieveString="*88" 
feature.enhancedCallPark.allowAudioNotification="1" 
feature.enhancedCallPark.allowBLFAudioNotification="1" 
/>
