Notes For Night Service Mode Auto Attendant Answering

If the auto attendant will only answer lines in night service mode, line answering should be set to N as per step 6 above.

A night service key is programmed at the control set for the lines to be answered by the auto attendant. The default control set for all lines is the attendant phone (21 or 221).

Night service is programmed in the Norstar system in General admin, Service modes. Ringing sets for night service mode will be set to the Startalk DN.

If a line should not be answered in night mode by the auto attendant, do not assign that line to the night mode ringing set (Startalk DN).

If a Norstar ICS is being used, then a Ringing group will be programmed, with the Startalk DN assigned to the Ringing group being used for night service.

The feature code for night service is Feature 87 on a compact or modular Norstar with DR5.

The feature code for night service is Feature 871 on an ICS (Service mode 1 is the night service mode for the ICS.)

See your Norstar manuals for more details on Service modes programming.

Notes about greetings:

When the auto attendant answers a call, the company greeting plays first, followed immediately (if used) by the auto attendant menu prompt.

The greetings played will depend on the greeting table assigned to a line, which allows a different company greeting to be played when a line is answered. This is useful when more than one company is sharing a Norstar phone system, or when special use lines should be answered with a different greeting.

There is a default auto attendant menu prompt in the Startalk. If a customized menu prompt will be used, be sure to tell callers that they can dial # to use the company directory.

Forwarding Calls To Voice Mail
1 – If a call has been transferred to an extension by the auto attendant, the call will be forwarded to that extension’s mailbox after the transfer return interval (4 rings). If no mailbox is assigned to an extension, the call will be forwarded to the general delivery mailbox.
