—Play Ringtone: This action programs the phone to play the specified ShorePhone

Call Routing Plan
The Call Routing Plan is the Personalized Call Handling component that determines the
routing method of a user’s inbound calls. The following sections describe the composition
and operation of a call routing plan.
A call routing plan consists of a maximum of ten call handling rules. The plan specifies the
rules that are active and lists the rules in the order that by which they are used to evaluate
characteristics of the inbound call.
When a user receives an inbound call, the system evaluates the characteristics against the
highest priority call handling rule that is enabled. If all of the criteria comprising the
condition of that rule matches the call characteristics, the call is routed as specified by the
rule’s action and the plan execution is complete. If any of the criteria do not match the call
characteristics, the system continues the plan execution by evaluating the call against the
enable rule with the next highest priority.
This process is repeated for all enabled call handling rules. If the call characteristics do not
match the conditions of any enabled call handling rule, the call is routed as specified by the
active Call Handling Mode.
