Get dial tone for a new outside or Intercom call just by lifting the handset.
Prime Line Preference allows an extension user to place or answer a call by just lifting the handset. The user does not have to press a line key, loop key, or the INTERCOM key first. This simplifies handling calls. In programming, you designate a line key, loop key, the INTERCOM key, a line, or a Line Group as the extension’s Prime Line. With a line key, loop key, line, or Line Group, the associated line (or lines) becomes your Prime Line. With the INTERCOM key, you get Intercom dial tone when you lift the handset. Any number of extensions can have the same Prime Line assignment.
There are two types of Prime Line Preference: Idle Prime Line and Intercom Prime Line.
If your Prime Line is busy, Secondary Prime Line allows you to automatically connect to an alternate Prime Line when you lift the handset. For example, you can have line 1 as your Prime Line and Line Group 90 (dial 9) as your Secondary Prime Line. Normally, you’ll get line 1 when you lift the handset. If line 1 is busy, however, you’ll automatically connect to an available line in group 90 instead.
