Setting up an internal call group (group call) in the FRITZ!Box
Unlike a broadcast call where all telephones ring, the group call allows you to simultaneously call specific telephones that are configured in the FRITZ!Box. You then conduct the call with the party who answers the telephone first.
1 Configuring the FRITZ!Box
- Click "Telephony" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
- Click "Telephone Book" in the "Telephony" menu.
- Switch to the first telephone book.
- Click the "New Entry" button.
- Give the telephone book entry a name, for example "group call".
- Enter the internal numbers of the telephones that should react to the group call for the telephone number. Start with ** and separate each of the telephone numbers with #.
If you want the telephone connected to extension 1, the first DECT telephone you configured, and the first IP telephone to ring, enter the telephone number **1#610#620.
Note:You can find the internal numbers of the telephones in the FRITZ!Box user interface under "Telephone Book > Internal Numbers".
- Make note of the quick-dial number that was automatically assigned to the telephone book entry.
Note:You can also assign a different quick-dial number. The quick-dial number must consist of two digits and may not have been used in the telephone book yet.
- Click "OK" to save the settings.
Now you can use the quick-dial number to call the group that you set up.
