features.conf

features.conf, the file formally known as parking.conf, contains configuration information related to call parking and call transfers. Call parking configuration options include:

  • The extension to dial to park calls (parkext =>)

  • The extension range to park calls in (parkpos =>)

  • Which context to park calls in (context =>)

  • How long a call can remain parked for before ringing the extension that parked it (parkingtime =>)

  • The sound file played to the parked caller when the call is removed from parking (courtesytone =>)

  • ADSI parking announcements (asdipark=yes|no)

In addition to the call parking options, in this file you can configure the button mappings for blind transfers, attended transfers, one-touch recording, disconnections, and the pickup extension (which allows you to answer a remotely ringing extension).
