Your phone can sound a distinctive ring for certain calls using a predefined list of phone numbers you choose. When you receive a call from a phone number not on your priority list, the normal ring will sound.
Note: Only certain models of desk phones support this feature. Only calls ringing your account phone will be affected. If the caller appears on the Forward Selected or Reject Selected lists – or you have Do Not Disturb enabled – this setting will not apply.
- On the Home dashboard under Advanced Settings, click Distinctive Ringtone. The following message will display: “Callers from the distinctive ringing list will ring with a different ringtone.”
- Click the distinctive ringing list link to create your screening list.
- On the Distinctive Ringtone Screening List window, choose List, Contacts or Extensions. Locate and select the numbers you’d like to add to your list. Click OK.
- Click Apply to save your changes.
Selected numbers on your Distinctive Ringtone Screening List will now sound a special ring when they call.
