Video Transcript

Welcome! This short mobility video will explain Ring Timers and offer some guidelines.

If you want to have more time to answer your desk phone you can change the ring timers. However, the ring timers can be a bit mystifying since most of us don't use milliseconds on a regular basis. Most users will keep the default value, but if you would like to make a change here are some hints to get you started.

If you want both phones to ring simultaneously, then put a zero in the Delay Before Ringing area.

The default is to ring the desktop, and then the remote destination - but if you would like to change the timing of the rings, this is a good place to start. To automatically ring your remote destination - use these settings or activate Do Not Disturb on your Deskphone or Softphone. I'll leave mine as the defaults. If you make any changes, don't forget to save!
