If you wish to “park” a call and then pick up the call from another extension, then you can park the call in a ‘Parking orbit’ and then pick up the call from another extension.
To park a call:
BLIND TRANSFER BUTTON followed by *00 to 09 to specify the parking orbit.
For example *01 will place the call in the parking orbit 1.
*02 will place the call in the parking orbit 2 etc.
To pick up a parked call:
*10 to 19 where the 0 – 9 is the park orbit number
For example *11 will pick up any calls parked in parking orbit 1
*12 will pick up any calls parked in parking orbit 2
Multiple Calls in Parking Lots
Parking lots support parking of multiple calls. Therefore, when un-parking, you can add the extension number from which the call was parked to be sure that you un-park the particular call you had initially parked there.
For example, if extension 100 parked a call in park 0, this call can be picked up by extension 101 by keying in *10100
