Pickup groups

If a telephone is ringing, other telephones in the same pickup group may call a feature code, by default **, which intercepts the call and brings it to them. Telephones may be in more than one pickup group, and may pick up any ringing telephone in any group they belong to. If more than one such telephone is ringing, which one is picked up is uncertain.

To add a new pickup group:

1. Log in to the NewTel Systems web interface.
2. Go to Features » Pickup groups.
3. Click the "Add a new pickup group" button.
4. Enter a name for the group, and optionally a description.
5. Click the "Save" button.
6. Set any telephones to use this group.
7. If you don't want to use **, add a new feature code with destination feature "Group pickup".
