|Use Account codes to categorize and/or restrict outside calls.|
Optional Account Codes allow a keyset extension user to enter an Account Code while placing an outside call or any time while on a call. This type of Account Code is optional: the system does not require the user to enter it. If the keyset user is already talking on an outside call, their conversation continues uninterrupted while they enter an Account Code.
Single line telephone users can only enter an Account Code while placing their outside call.
Forced Account Codes require an extension user to enter an Account Code every time they place an outside call. If the user doesn’t enter the code, the system prevents the call. The system can require Forced Account Codes for all outside calls, or just for toll calls (as determined by Toll Restriction programming). Note that Forced Account Codes do not pertain to incoming calls.
With Verified Account Codes, the system compares the Account Code the user dials with a list of codes programmed into the Verified Account Code Table. If the Account Code is in the table, the call goes through (provided it is not prevented by an extension’s Toll Restriction programming). If the code is not in the table, the system prevents the call. Verified Account Codes, if enabled, apply only to Forced Account Codes.
The system provides 1000 Verified Account Codes.
Last Number Redial and Save do not store Account Codes. This means that the user must manually enter an Account Code to have it included with a call dialed using Last Number Redial and Save. If Forced Account Codes are enabled, the system requires the user to enter the Account Code before it outdials the stored number saved by Last Number Redial or Save.
An extension user can preselect a line for a Last Number Redial or Save call.
Account Codes are never enforced for emergency (911 and 1+911) calls.
