Park places a call in a waiting state (called a Park Orbit) so that an extension user may pick it up. There are two types of Park: System and Personal. Use System Park when you want to have the call wait in a system orbit. Personal Park allows a user to Park a call at their extension so a co-worker can pick it up. After parking a call in orbit, a user can Page the person receiving the call and hang up. The paged party dials a code or presses a programmed Park key to pick up the call. With Park, it is not necessary to locate a person to handle their calls. A call parked for too long recalls the extension that initially parked it, however the call remains in the park orbit until it is answered. There are 64 Park Orbits (1~64) available for use.
An extension Class of Service determines whether it uses the normal Park Orbit Recall time or the Extended Park Orbit Recall time. The timers are set in system programming. When an extension with Extended Park Recall Class of Service option parks a call, it recalls after the Extended Park Orbit Recall time. When an extension with the Normal Park Orbit Recall Class of Service option parks a call, it recalls after the normal Park Orbit Recall time, however the call remains in the park orbit until it is answered.
Programmable Function Key and Service Code Available for Personal Park
The Personal Park feature is enhanced by using a Programmable Function Key or service code (3- digit or 1-digit) to place a call in Personal Park. This option is available for Multiline Terminals and single line sets and can be used for analog or ISDN trunks.
