Auto Dial Buttons for a Digital Set

Digital telephone sets have programmable buttons:

AD -- Auto Dial buttons are programmed by the individual user to dial phone numbers which can be local, long distance or within the system (extension numbers, pager access, etc.).

BAD -- Busy Auto Dial buttons are programmed by the Telecommunications Staff to dial access to a extension's end call coverage path. The common use is to send a call to an extension's voice mail box to leave a message. The digital lamp associated with a BAD button will illuminate when the extension is in use (busy).

PAD -- Priority Auto Dial buttons are programmed by the Telecommunications Staff to override Send All Calls and ring the extension if that extension is not on a call. If the extension is in use, the extension user will hear a beep tone which indicates a Priority call is being attempted.
