This manual provides information for completely programming a new DX-80 system from scratch. Comdial also provides you with some tools you can use to reduce your programming time. These tools include: • a series of worksheets for you to plan your system structure, and record the programming for future reference if necessary. For more details, see Appendix A, Worksheets. • copying a base CO line or extension’s setups to several other CO line or extensions thereby eliminating the need to program them individually, and • using one of four standard database programming templates provided with the DX-80 on CD part number DX80UTILCD. You can choose the template that most closely matches your new customer’s site needs, and then add whatever custom changes you need to make. This approach saves you the time of programming the entire system from scratch. For more information on these and other aids the DX-80 provides to allow you to program a system efficiently, see Section 3.1, Shortcuts to Help You Work Faster. When you are programming a new system from scratch, perform the following basic tasks: 1. Set up the system features. 2. Set up the CO lines. 3. Set up call handling. 4. Set up the toll restrictions. 5. Set up the UCD groups. 6. Set up Voice Mail (if applicable).
