PollCat NetLink II - User’s Guide
Two separate weekday schedules allow you to specify slow and heavy
PBX activity periods during the work week; the two weekend schedules
allow you to deﬁne slow and heavy periods on weekends. In both cases,
Schedule 1 is assigned to the busy period, and Schedule 2 is assigned to the
slow period. Note that Schedule 2 has priority over Schedule 1, and timer
schedules are often deﬁned to overlap.
In order to prevent NetLink II from generating PBX Inactivity Alarms on
holidays, up to 20 user deﬁned holidays (exclusions) can be deﬁned. This
allows the alarm to be suppressed on holidays, or on any other day when
you expect low PBX activity.
Example: If you receive one call every ﬁve minutes from 8:00 am to 5:00
PM, Timer One would be set for ﬁve minutes and Schedule One would be
deﬁned as 08:00 to 17:00. In order to compensate for a drop in activity
to one call every 30 minutes during lunch, Timer Two would be set for 30
minutes and Schedule Two would be deﬁned as 12:00 to 13:00.
