The Avaya Partner ACS R7 phone system has just received a feature upgrade. The upgrade is referred to as the 'O' release, as is reflected in the release number, which you can verify by pressing FEATURE 59 from any display telephone.
Here is a run down of the new features included in the 91O release.
Hot Dial Pad
The Hot Dial Pad feature allows the you to simply start dialing a number on the key pad and your telephone will automatically select an outside line and dial out the number without having to lift the handset or activate the speaker. To use the feature you must program a button that will toggle the Hot Dial feature on or off. To program the Hot Dial feature do the following:

Message Alert Notification
Message Alert Notification allows you to see the message status of extensions on your system other then your own. This is a welcome addition to the Partner ACS R7 feature set. I can't tell you how often customers have asked if their Partner ACS system could perform this. Message Alert Notification requires you to program an auto dial button for the extension you would like to monitor for messages. The auto dial button will also serves as a means of calling that extension and seeing off-hook status. Once you have the Intercom Auto Dial button programmed, you need to program the Message Alert Notification button. The button when activated will show the message status of all extensions you have programmed on your phone for auto dial, with a red flashing LED.
