Call Pickup your own phone

Hey Guys,

 

These folks want to do a self pickup. Say your phone is ringing, and you are in the vicinity , press a code/your phone number in any phone around you and pick the call.

Possible ?

 

Thanks

Hi there,

 

You would want to use "Directed Call Pickup" for this type of scenario;

 

Configuration Checklist for Directed Call Pickup

The Directed Call Pickup feature allows a user to pick up a ringing call on a DN directly by pressing the GPickUp softkey and entering the directory number of the device that is ringing. Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the associated group mechanism to control the privilege of a user who wants to pick up an incoming call by using Directed Call Pickup. The associated group of a user specifies one or more call pickup groups that have been associated to the pickup group to which the user belongs.

If a user wants to pick up a ringing call from a DN directly, the associated groups of the user must contain the pickup group to which the DN belongs. If two users belong to two different call pickup groups and the associated groups of the users do not contain the call pickup group of the other user, the users cannot invoke Directed Call Pickup to pick up calls from each other.

When the user invokes the Directed Call Pickup feature and enters a DN from which to pick up an incoming call, the user connects to the call that is incoming to the specified phone whether or not the call is the longest ringing call in the call pickup group to which the DN belongs.

Thanks a lot Rob. Will test this. Is it required for the phone to be part of a group ?

 

Cheers!!

Hi there,

 

You are most welcome! 

 

Yes, the users would need to be part of a group(s) and have the groups associated :)

 

Cheers!

Rob
