Call Monitor and Barge In Planning Applications and Services 8
ShoreTel 14 Planning and Installation Guide 155
To simplify discussion of this feature, we will refer to three parties: the supervisor, the agent, and the
customer. The supervisor initiates the silent monitor by selecting an agent. The agent is on a call with
the customer. The customer may be an internal or external caller, but supervisors and agents must be
on extensions.
In Silent Monitor, a supervisor hook flash is ignored. However, a hook flash by the other parties works
the same as in a two-party call. In particular, an agent flash puts the call on hold and allows a
consultative transfer or conference.
Because there is a limit of three parties in a conference call, if the agent or customer makes a
consultative transfer or conference, the supervisor is automatically dropped. Similarly, if another party
barges in a monitored extension, then the silent monitor is dropped.
If a conference call is already in progress, it cannot be monitored. If a silent monitor is already in
progress, no one else can monitor the call.
The supervisor can barge in on a call he or she is silent monitoring. It is not possible to revert a barge
in call to a monitored call. If desired, the supervisor can hang up and restart monitoring.
After a barge in, the agent remains the controlling party of the call. A subsequent agent hook flash
disconnects the supervisor, who is the last party added.
