Alert Panel

Incoming session requests bring up the "Alert Panel"

Click on the Accept Button to accept a session request. There are two options for rejecting an incoming session request:

  • Click on the Reject button. The session is rejected with SIP response code 603 and all other SIP devices registered for the same account stop ringing. Forwarding to voicemail or other destinations, when available in the SIP server is also cancelled. You must use this option to terminate all call processing associated with the request.
  • Click on the Busy button. Blink sends a 486 code back to the caller and stops ringing, other SIP devices keep ringing and forwarding to other destinations remains active as set in the SIP server. You must use this option when you want to pick up the call at a different location or allow the Server to perform other pre-configured routing decisions.

When the Answering Machine is enabled, a countdown appears in the Alert Panel. While the countdown counts you can still disable the Answering Machine from the Account menu.

The currently selected input and output audio devices are showed for incoming Audio Call requests.
