Paging and DND

Recommended Posts

We are running pbxnsip v4 and using Snom 360 phones. Paging is working in multicast mode just fine but some users want to block pages due to being on another phone or don't want it to be on their phone just temporarily (so I don't want to configure their phones to never page). I have tried turning DND on but the paging still goes through.

 

Also on a side note the only way we have been able to turn the volume down for the paging is to turn the speakerphone volume all the way down but when you want to use the speakerphone you have to turn the volume back up and then back down to turn the paging down again. Any work around on this one?

 

TIA

Good point. From the PBX there is nothing really that can be done there, especially in multicast mode (moving the topic to the snom section).

 

It is really a policy question if paging should be audible for the phone. I don't think paging is really being used for emergency purposes, such stuff happens on overhead paging. So I would tend to say by default multicast paging should be disabled.

You can configure an action URL for turning the paging setting off on a function button.

Eg. on the phone web page function keys, select a function key and set its type to Action URL from the drop down, then in its number field enter:

 

http://127.0.0.1/dummy.htm?settings=save&a...cast_listen=off

 

and save it. When this key is pressed now, multicast will be turned off.

You can choose another key to set it back on by the action url:

 

http://127.0.0.1/dummy.htm?settings=save&a...icast_listen=on

 

and save it.

May be for the future releases - the phone can probably toggle the multicast listen when the DND key is pressed (can be a new setting).

I added the supplied Action URL's to the DND Action URL's and it works with the DND button.... Thanks!

 

Now is there anyway to change make this setting the default for all phones and push it down to the phones via pbxnsip or do we have to log into each phone and make this change?

You can provision it for the DND action urls settings.
