NEC ASPIRE Abbreviated Dialing gives you quick access to numbers you call fre- quently. This saves time, for example, when calling a client with whom you deal often. Instead of dialing a long telephone number, you just use Abbreviated Dialing. There are three types of Abbreviated Dialing: Common, Group and Personal. All co-workers can share the Common Abbreviated Dialing numbers. All co-workers in your Department Calling Group can share the Group Abbreviated Dialing numbers. (See page 37 for more on Department Calling.) Only you can use your Personal Abbreviated Dialing numbers. To set up Personal Abbreviated Dialing, Account Codes are codes you enter that help keep track of outside calls. There are two types of Account Codes: Optional and Forced. With optional codes, the Account Codes you enter are solely for cate- gorizing your calls. For example, if you work in an accounting firm that must bill back customers for time on the phone, Optional Account Codes are for you. Forced Account Codes also let you categorize calls, but you must enter one before placing outgoing calls. If you don't enter the code, you can't place the call. This ensures that calls don't go out untracked. When forced and verified Account Codes are enabled for toll calls only, local and toll free numbers have optional account codes. Check with your Communications Manager to find out if your system uses Account Codes - and which codes you should enter. Automated Attendant automatically answers your system's outside calls, plays a prerecorded greeting and then lets callers directly dial you or your co-workers. This gives your system immediate answering and routing of calls without an operator or dispatcher. The Automated Attendant can: G Simultaneously answer up to six calls. G Route calls to an extension, Department Group or Voice Mail and provide additional options if the extension or group is unavailable. G Give you the option of recording or modifying the Automated attendant.
