|For systems without voice mail, leave a Message Waiting request for a return call.|
An extension user can leave a Message Waiting indication at a busy or unanswered extension requesting a return call. The indication is a flashing V-MAIL key and Ring/Message lamp at the called extension. Answering the Message Waiting automatically calls the extension which left the indication. Message Waiting ensures that a user will not have to recall an unanswered extension. It also ensures that a user will not miss calls when their extension is busy or unattended.
An extension user can leave Messages Waiting at any number of extensions. Also, any number of extensions can leave a Message Waiting at the same extension. If an extension has multiple messages waiting, the user can scroll through their Messages Waiting and select a co-worker to call back.
Message Wait Lamping
Either type of Message Wait lamping can be used with SLT Special Dial Tone. When SLT Special Dial Tone is enabled, an SLT user with messages waiting hears a pulsating Intercom dial tone when they lift the handset. Intercom dial tone returns to normal only after the SLT user dials *8 to answer all their Messages Waiting.
