Additional Information

In previous versions of VOD, this feature was called Auto Connect. 

When enabled, Auto connect will result in calls using your desk phone to go off-hook immediately, and you will hear the other party's phone ring. When disabled, calls will first ring your desk phone, and then be placed to the other party when you pick up.
