Cisco Phone CP-8831 Meetme function

Hi there,

 

Model: Cisco UC Phone CP-8831

Cisco Unified CM Administration System version: 10.5.2.10000-5

 

I am asked to set up Meet-me function on the 8831 phone. As suggested by Cisco manuals, I've done the followings:

1) assigned specific directory numbers for meet me (tested and worked fine on other cisco phones)

2) added the meetme function in softkey template (both on-hook and off-hook) and assign it in 8831 phone

3) Save and apply the config. Reset and Restart the phones afterwards

4) checked the phone and ensure the WAN connectivity is not lost ( no alert message on the phone)

 

Unfortunately the phones has changed nothing after the restart, I can't find the meetme function anywhere. I've pressed the option "more" a few times in case it miss it.

 

Can anyone pleaes help? Many thanks for any ideas in advance.

 

 

Thanks,

Mike

Hi,

 

How did you create the sooftkey template? As I understand you need to copy the  "Standard 8831 SIP" template and saving the copy with a new name. This model phone will only show 'compatible' phone button templates, specifically only ones that are based on the 8831 model.

Hi Eric,

 

Thanks for your prompt reply.

 

According to Cisco, meetme option is revised in Softkey template, not the Phone Button template.

I've also tried the methods mentioned in the provided link but cannot find the meetme option. A screenshot is attached for your reference.

 

Many thanks,

8831 uses feature control policy

Device > Device Settings > Feature Control Policy > Enable Meet Me

Create a common phone profile and assign the policy Device > Device
Settings > Common Phone Profile

Assign the Common profile to the phone
