Activate Night Mode


Night Mode is a setting that allows users to enable/disable an Answering Rule by using a star-code or speed dial key. The star-code *74 is used to Activate Night mode. The star-code *75 is used to de-activate night mode.

If you are using a Routing User to direct calls to a specific destination, then the 'Night' Answering Rule described here must be configured for the Routing User. The Routing User must also be added as a line key to any phone you wish to be able to enable/disable Night Mode. This is accomplished by adding the extension of the Routing User to the lines of the phone in NDP.


Create a Time Frame named 'Night'

The punctuation must match 'Night' exactly (the N must be capitalized)

Create an Answering Rule called Night for the desired User using the Night timeframe

The Night Answering Rule must be the top-most priority in the list of Answering Rules. When this rule is enabled by the *74 star-code, it will show as "Active".

When this rule is disabled by the *75 star-code, it will be ignored, and the switch will move on to the next applicable answering rule.

If desired, create a speed-dial or programmable key using overrides to allow single-button access to this feature.
