Page groups

Page groups allow more than one destination to be called at once. All destinations that answer are put into a conference, and can hear the caller. This differs from hunt groups, where only one destination can answer.

To add a new page group:

1. Log in to the Maxxtel Communications web interface.
2. If you wish to record calls to this page group, make a record group.
3. Go to Features » Page groups.
4. Click the "Add a new page group" button.
5. Enter the following:
  • A name for the page group.
  • Optionally a description.
  • Whether to ask SIP telephones to auto-answer. Please note that not all telephone models support this. Any that don't will ring as normal.
  • Whether to play a beep to the caller when the caller is placed in the conference.
  • Whether destinations may talk. If set to yes, everyone in the conference may hear them.
  • The record group if you have any.
6. Click the "Save" button.
7. Click the "Add a destination" link.
8. Choose the destination.
9. Click the "Save" button.
10. Repeat for other destinations as desired
