Tip of the Day

Q

How do I change the time on my telephones? - Iwatsu

A

Go to the main telephone (usually operator or receptionist), lift the handset*, press FEAT (or Feature), dial 64, then enter the time in a 24 hour format (i.e. 1:31PM = 13:31).

*if you automatically get a line when you lift the handset, you must press ICM before pressing the FEAT key.

DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE TIME ON YOUR VOICEMAIL!
