What is BLF?

BLF stands for "Busy Lamp Field".

In simple terms, BLF is a feature that helps you keep track of the status of your colleagues' extensions.

It's like having a virtual indicator on your phone to see if your colleagues are available or on a call. Let's dive into how this handy feature can make your workday more efficient.

How Does BLF Work?

Imagine you're working in an office with several colleagues, and you often need to reach out to them. With BLF, you can see at a glance whether they are available. It works like a traffic light:

  • Green Light: This means the person's line is free. You can call them without any worries.

  • Red Light: The red light signals that the line is currently in use. It's like a "Do Not Disturb" sign. You'll know not to interrupt them.

  • Blinking or Flashing: If you see a light flashing, it means there's an incoming call. This gives you a heads-up that your colleague might not answer your call right away.

Why is BLF Helpful?

BLF is a real time-saver. Instead of calling a colleague, waiting for them to pick up, and possibly getting sent to voicemail, you can instantly know if they are available. This helps you make more efficient use of your time and theirs.

How to Use BLF on Fanvil X Phones

Using BLF on Fanvil X Phones is a breeze:

  1. Access the BLF Feature: On your Fanvil X Phone, located at the extension panel of the phone buttons.

  2. Configuration: The phone comes pre-configured for the extensions on the account.

  3. Monitor Availability: The BLF buttons will now display the status of your colleagues. Green means they're available, red means they're busy, and flashing indicates an incoming call.

  4. One-Button Calling/Call transfer: When you see a green light, you can call your colleague with a single button press.

The BLF feature on Fanvil X Phones simplifies your workday by giving you a quick way to check the availability of your colleagues. This time-saving feature can make your office communication more efficient and productive.

So, the next time you're in a rush to make a call, just look for that reassuring green light, and you'll know it's the perfect time to connect.

Disclaimer: The availability and functionality of the BLF feature may vary depending on the specific Fanvil X Phone model.
