Personal call handling rules are based on multiple criteria including the time or date a call is received,
the caller status, and caller identity. These rules take precedence over the active call handling mode.
Refer to Personalizing Call Handling on page 86 for information on creating personal call handling
Making Calls
Using ShoreTel Communicator, you can easily make a call to a single contact or make a call to a
contact’s voice mailbox. Making special calls, usually done by operators, assistants, and call center
personnel, is explained in Chapter 7, Special Features on page 70.
ShoreTel Communicator helps reduce your attempts to call unavailable parties by identifying the
availability (presence) of a contact to accept your call. For information, refer to the section Identifying
Presence on page 54.
Once you have placed a call, details of the connected call are displayed in the Active Call area of
ShoreTel Communicator.
