The interval between reminders is configurable through the System Properties page.
To configure the Hold Notification Interval, follow these steps:

To use this feature, you must have a key programmed with Intercom to Prompt. See Programmable Memory Key Features.

Internal Phone Settings

To configure internal phone settings (such as display brightness and contrast), select the Superkey and follow the prompts.

Line Appearance

Line Appearance keys are required in order to receive incoming calls and to make outgoing calls. The LED on the programmed key indicates the status of the Line Appearance.

  • Key is unlit: the Line Appearance is available for an incoming or outgoing call.
  • Key is flashing green with a ring tone: an incoming call is available to be answered.
  • Key is flashing red without a ring tone: a call is on hold.
  • Key is solid: a call is active. If this is green, then a call is active. If this is red, then a twinned call is active on the twinned target phone.

When you have multiple Line Appearance keys, they are ordered from bottom to top, right to left. An incoming call appears on the first available Line Appearance.
Your phone will normally have two or three pre-programmed Line Appearance keys. To be able to handle more simultaneous calls, you must program additional keys with Line Appearance. See Programmable Memory Key Features.

  • You can only program Line Appearance keys on page one of the three programmable pages.

Mute

Using Mute, you can silence any sound from the phone. This does not prevent incoming sound from being heard. Press    during a call to activate Mute. The LED on the key indicates when Mute is active.

Since the 5304 phone does not have a handsfree microphone, the phone is effectively muted (no sound is transmitted to the other party) whenever the handset is on-hook. This does not prevent incoming sound from being heard.

One Touch Speed Dial

Using One Touch Speed Dial, you can make a call to a pre-programmed number. To use this feature, a programmable key must be programmed as a One Touch Speed Dial. See Programmable Memory Key Features.
To use One Touch Speed Dial, choose one of the following:

  • Lift the handset and press One Touch Speed Dial.
  • Press an available Line Appearance to activate the speakerphone, and then press One Touch Speed Dial.

  3. To end the page, you have the following options:
    • Replace the handset if using the handset (5304).
    • Select Speaker
    • Press END.


  • A page is not broadcast on phones that are busy.
  • If you select Page while there is already a page in progress, the system waits until the page in progress is completed before your page is started. Your LCD shows "Calling: Site Page", you hear ringing while you are waiting, and the LCD displays x of y phones are being paged.
  • On the phones receiving a page, the LCD screen displays the name of the user who originated the page (Page from: <firstname, lastname>) and an END softkey. The user receiving the page can stop the page to their phone by pressing END (Not applicable to 5212/5312 or 5304 phones).

Page Groups (Mitel Phones)

Group Paging offers an extra level of granularity to paging so that subscribers can page a specific group of users who are located in the same site, without targeting the broadcast (IP multicast) to everyone within the site.
Using the page groups feature, you can send a page to a pre-determined group of the Mitel MiNet phones at your site. The page is broadcast through the speaker of each available phone. To use this feature, you must have a memory key programmed as a Page.
To page phones at your site, follow these steps:

  1. Select the memory key programmed with the Page Group feature.

The LCD shows "Calling: Group Page" while the system identifies the available phones of the group.
When the system is ready for you to begin your page, it plays a tone on both the paging and paged phones as the group page is being established. During the group page, the paging phone displays "Paging : x of y", where x is an integer {1, 2, 3, …, y} and y is up to a maximum of 100. While the paged phones display "Page from: <Pager's First name + Last name>".

      2. Speak into the handset or the speakerphone.

      3. To end the page, you have the following options:

    • Replace the handset if using the handset (5304).
    • Select Speaker
    • Press END.


  • A page is not broadcast on phones that are busy.
  • If you select Page while there is already a page in progress, the system waits until the page in progress is completed before your page is started. Your LCD shows "Calling: Site Page", you hear ringing while you are waiting.
  • On the phones receiving a page, the LCD screen displays the name of the user who originated the page ("Page from: <firstname, lastname>") and an END softkey. Users receiving the page can stop the page to their phone by pressing END (Not applicable to 5212/5312 or 5304 phones).
  • Group paging does not work on the Mitel 5220 IP phone and 5485 Paging Unit. Site paging, however, does work.

  • If the call is left parked for the Park Reminder Interval (the default is 30 seconds), the phone of the person who parked the call will beep and the LCD briefly shows "Call parked at: " with the park location number to remind you that a call that you parked has not been retrieved.

Location

Using Park on X key, you can put a call on hold at a specific park location (if that location is not busy) so that it can be retrieved from another phone at your business.

Primary Phone

The Primary Phone key lets you designate which multi-desked phone is used for intercom and click-to-call (C2C) requests.
You activate the key by pressing it. However, you can only activate it through the My Phones page on webadmin by setting both Click to Call Originator and Intercom Recipient to the same phone. You must select both of these settings to the same phone or the phone is not the primary phone. Selecting separate phones as the Click to Call Originator and Intercom Recipient deactivates the key. When the key is active, the LED is solid green. Pressing the unlit (inactive) key on a phone deactivates it on the previously lit (active) phone. Selecting the same phone as the intercom recipient and C2C originator activates the key.
When you set the phone as the primary phone, the webadmin automatically updates.
