Conflicts when Paging with IP Phones
This Tech Tip requires access to the phone system using NEC PCPro Programming Software. To download the latest version of PCPro or for instructions on how to connect your computer to the phone system, please read the following: How to Connect to the NEC SL2100 or SL1100 Phone System for Programming.
PCPro Programming Steps
1. On the lower left side of the screen, click on the “Easy Edit” tab
2. Click the plus sign next to “Quick Install” to expand it
3. Click the plus sign next to “Extensions” to expand it
4. Click on “Function Key Template”
In the screen shot below, you can see that it brought us into extension 101’s buttons. As an example, we will fill in the unused buttons with DSS/One Touch keys for extensions 102 through 107.
There are several ways to accomplish this. We can click on DSS/One Touch at the left side. When we do that, the lower left side fills in with choices.
Click on 10-03:ESIU Configuration.
Click on 102, then click on button 7 (first button on the second row at the left side).
Two things happened. First, it filled in 102 on button 7. Second, it advanced to 103 in the options at the lower left side. Click on button 8, then 9. The system fills in buttons as you move along.
Or, you can right click on a button, a round disc with options will appear. Hover your mouse over one of the options to see what it entails. One option is to fill in a row. When you select fill in a row, it programs the buttons in order from the first extension selected to the end of the row.
When completed, click on the apply button, then upload your changes.
In most systems you do not need a DSS/One Touch button for your own extension. The PCPro copy command does not allow for skipping a button assignment. You can select the next extension, click on DSS/One Touch, then click on the extension/button you want to program. This will advance you to the next button and the next extension choice. Click on the next extension, then next button, then right click and select fill in row. It will skip the selected extension and fill in from there.
Notice it went from 101 to 103, then 104-107 for extension 102. Apply the changes.
There is no copy function in “Easy Edit”, however, there is an “Apply to Multiple” option.
Click on the apply to multiple tab. A box with extension options appears.
Click on those that you wish to copy to. Apply, then upload.
After programming all of the extensions, save the file as a template for future systems.
On your next system, open the file and import it to program the buttons as per your template. Future releases of PCPro will enable you to select “Reports”, then DESI Labels. This will open the DESI program (if loaded on your PC), and allow you to print DESI’s. Presently this feature opens to the DT300/700 model telephones, and not the SL2100 model phones.
