What is a Page Group and How Do I Add One?

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 Press8 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 “New” 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.
  1. Click the “Save” button.
  2. Click the “Add a destination” link.
  3. Choose the destination.
  4. Click the “Save” button.
  5. Repeat for other destinations as desired.
