Ringing an Extension when a Call Comes in on Specific Phone Line(s)

In a previous tip, we showed how to stop specific extensions from ringing when an incoming call comes in. This Tech Tip demonstrates how to make an extension ring only when a call comes in on a specific incoming phone line(s). This tip applies to both the NEC SL200 or NEC SL1100.

Programming Steps

Note: In this example we will make extension 108 ring when a call comes in over lines 1, 2, or 3. But will NOT ring when a call comes in over line 4.

1. Go to Program 22-04: Incoming Ring Group Extension Assignment

2. Enter “2” in the Incoming Ring Group (1~25) Field

3. Add Extensions 101 through 107 to this Ring Group, but do not add Extension 108.

4. Go to Program 22-05: Incoming Trunk Ring Group Assignment

5. For Trunk 04, change the value of Mode 1 to “2”

6. Apply and upload your changes

Step 2. Enter “2” in the Incoming Ring Group (1~25) Field to Move to Incoming Ring Group 2

Step 3. Populate Ring Group 2 with Extensions 101 through 107, but do not add Extension 108.

Step 5. For Trunk 04, change the value of Mode 1 to “2”. This assigns Ring Group 2 to Trunk 04.
